U.S. Blames Iran for Tanker Attacks Near Straight of Hormuz – is War With Iran Likely?

On Thursday, two tankers were attacked in spectacular fashion in the Gulf of Oman.  These attacks happened near the strategically important Straight of Hormuz, and U.S. officials are placing the blame squarely on Iran.  Needless to say, this latest incident has made it much more likely that we could be going to war.  The following comes from Fox News

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has blamed Iran for the “blatant assault” on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman earlier Thursday.

 

In a press conference Thursday afternoon, Pompeo said: “This assessment is based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping, and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication.”

 

He charged that Iran is working to disrupt the flow of oil through the Strait of Hormuz and this is a deliberate part of a campaign to escalate tension, adding that the U.S. will defend its forces and interests in the region, although he did not elaborate.

Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.One of the things that you should know about me is that I put a very high priority on love. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, hopefully I am doing it with a loving heart. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.Another thing that you should know about me is that I am a Christian. And I am one of those Christians that actually believes the Bible, and there are a lot of people out there that don’t like people like that.I believe that God loves us very much and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die on the cross for our sins.
