His comments came shortly after a senior U.S. defense official told Fox News that the U.S. Navy saw an unexploded mine attached to the hull of the Panama-listed, Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous ship, one of the two ships attacked. It is the same type of mine used to damage four oil tankers last month in the same area - an attack senior Pentagon officials blamed on Iran.

The war in Yemen is a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia and its allies, the United States.
- Indirectly, this is about the conflict between Iran, the United States and Saudi Arabia. For the huthi rebels, this becomes a way of paying back to Iran but also poses major problems, especially for Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, says Stefan Åsberg and continues:
- If the huthi rebels are now pointed out, we can expect a retaliation inside Yemen.

Black OP run by John Bolton and Mike Pompeo. (Which dive team, and from where, did they get to do this?)
They both want a war with Iran (most of all John Bolton of course), and they're not on the same page as Trump when it comes to war with Iran.

Trump’s new Iran strategy: fire Bolton and engage international mediators?

John Bolton’s dangerous 'obsession' with Iran

And hundreds more pages of how dangerous John Bolton in particular is.

Who or who was behind the attack is thus not solved - and now the truth will be forth, says UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. On Friday he went out and asked for an independent investigation to ensure the facts and who should be responsible for the attack. It reports the news agencies Reuters and AP .
“It is very important that the truth comes out and it is very important that it clarifies who carries the responsibility. Obviously, it can only be done if there is an independent unit that controls the facts, ”said Guterres to the press team, according to Reuters. Only the UN Security Council can order such an investigation, says Antonio Guterres.
The UN chief also said he is available to mediate between the United States and Iran, if both parties agree, but it does not look bright, reports Reuters.
"Right now we see no tendency for a dialogue to be implemented," Guterres said.

From the BBC:

The US military has released a video which it says shows Iranian special forces removing an unexploded mine from the side of an oil tanker damaged in an attack in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday.

The US also released images of the Japanese tanker apparently showing the unexploded mine before it was removed.

The small white patrol craft in the video is typical of the type used by Iran's IRGC (Revolutionary Guards) Navy in the Gulf. In recent years, the IRGC Navy has steadily supplanted Iran's conventional Navy all along Iran's Gulf coast, from its border with Kuwait in the north all the way down to Pakistan and the Arabian Sea. Its forces have built up a formidable flotilla of small, high-speed, hard-to-detect attack craft armed with mines, missiles, torpedoes and drones.

IRGC commandos regularly practise covert operations and simulated attacks. Some of their craft have come in close proximity to US Navy warships in the Gulf in recent years and there remains the risk of a clash at sea.

Getting very ominous now...

Iran made a very big mistake!

IRGC commander in chief Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami said the downed drone was a "clear message to America," stressing that although Iran was "not seeking war with any country," it was "fully prepared to defend" the country from foreign aggression.
US Central Command later confirmed that a US Navy "Broad Area Maritime Surveillance (or BAMS-D) ISR aircraft" was shot down, with the incident said to have taken place just before midnight on Wednesday night.

"Mr Trump said it was "documented" that the unmanned drone had been over international waters and not in Iranian airspace."
I wonder if he knows that passing the Strait of Hormuz you have to pass the territorial airspace of Iran or the UAE and that there is no international airspace where the strait is narrowest.
The Iranian version is this.

Any reports from the UAE of any downed drones?

His buddy national security adviser John Bolton is one of the warmongers.

Kushner: Move all my armies to Kamchatka.
Commander: Son, this is not RISK.
Kushner: No, it's where my money is.

The US DoD version of the drone flight path.

Gulf of Tonkin. Of course they have the photo, the stealth drone was also up hoping that Iran would fall into the trap, hook line and sinker.

I think that the parallels with Bush are even stronger in that both of them are being manipulated by those around them for their personal gain to start a war.

Hmm...
A senior Iranian military commander says Iran has refrained from shooting down a US plane with 35 people on board that was accompanying an American spy drone which was shot down in the Persian Gulf after intruding into the Iranian airspace.
