    Bolton is probably calling Trump nonstop about declaring war on Iran.

    Oil prices are starting to surge according to Fox News. Inevitable.

    If it was an attack, it would seem to be an unusually low yield weapon.

    Their torpedoes are hardly state of the art...and a proper tanker is a huge ship with serious metal in the hull

    A single direct hit from a 80 year old WWII torpedo should do more damage than that. I wonder if they hit small mines?

    Mines are a possibility that's for sure...but if Iran is smart they would use those Kilos

    The last time this shitb went down they shot a tanker in the super structure with a sidewinder...didn't do much lol

    Thanks to Henry Kissinger our money is backed by oil instead of gold. What a freaking [email protected] he is!!!

    That's not what a Sidewinder is meant for. Should have used an Exocet

    Would be nice to have the S-3s back... at this rate of escalation by the time we get them out of Davis-Monthan the Iranian navy would be on the floor of the Persian gulf. Looks like we may get to try out the P-8 Poseidon.
    Hopefully we can detect the Kilos and let them know we are tracking them without going hot. There's an old news saying "all preliminary reports are wrong," I'm still hoping the damage was not directly from Iranian conventional military action...
    Wonder where SSN-23 is lurking?
    I'm sure the USN is going to be chaperone to all the tankers entering/exiting the gulf again like in the 80' around "operation preying mantis"

    At this point I am sure we have subs there keeping track of them. You will probably never hear anything until someone admits one of theirs is missing.

    I doubt Iran would ever admit to losing one of its subs. Especially if it did something stupid and was sunk by a US sub.

    I genuinely blame Obama for giving these morons the idea that they are even remotely a player on the world stage. The people of Iran deserve better than the crap their Islam-o-tard shitstain leaders are giving them.

    I’ve noticed this as we get letters pretty regular from our supplier stating the prices are increasing.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the CIA actually had something to do with it, to help promote legitimizing a war with Iran.

    That, or it is actually the Mossad for the same reason.

    The Russians would stand to gain also from higher oil prices.

    I'd rule the Chinese out since that isn't their usual M.O. (they don't like "hot" espionage)

    I highly doubt Iran would want to provoke a real US engagement.

    This really seems like some third party purposely trying to provoke the US into attacking Iran.

    A single player team like a splinter ISIS cell isn't out of the question either.

    Spanish-American war started this way.

    I heard John Kerry is on his way to Iran to apologize for any misunderstandings.
