Iranian Attacks on Oil Tankers
I find the Iranian attacks on Oil Tankers to be troublesome, and I would like to see
a measured and direct response to the menace. Four tankers were attacked on May 12,
two on June 13, and one yesterday. And, no doubt, our drone was shot down to knock
out a "security camera" at the ongoing crime scene. I don't understand why Iranian
gun boats are allowed to come into "proximity" of any tanker in the Persian Gulf given
the recent history. It may be time to define "proximity" and start blowing some out
of the water. I think the British warship missed a perfect opportunity yesterday to:
1. set an example and send a message
2. prove WHO was doing the harassing
3. prove WHERE the harassment was occuring.
I prefer the direct response, rather than the retaliatory strike, like taking out the
entire Iranian Fleet and such.
