Comes news today that two oil tankers in the Persian Gulf were attacked. Both ships are afloat and all crew have been evacuated. This comes on the heels of an attack on four oil tankers in the Gulf a few weeks ago.
In the previous attack, the empty tankers were hit with small bombs placed at the waterline - attacks calculated for maximum visibility and minimum damage. The Saudis and the US were quick to blame Iran for that attack. They are blaming Iran for the latest attack as well.
Mr. Coyote is claiming these attacks are false flags. Although he blames a lot of bad things on false flag attacks, here I think he's right. Where he's wrong is that he's blaming either the US or Israel for the incidents.
Personally I think it's the Saudis. They are glad to fight Iran to the last American. I also think they've taken the measure of our President and found it small. That plus he's currently advised by John Bolton, a man who's never seem a war he didn't like, would suggest it would be easy to get the US to fight Iran.
Elections have consequences.
