Oops. The British flagged oil tanker 'Stena Impero' owned by Swedish Stena Bulk has been seized in the Gulf by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Iran media say.

I'm thankful that Osama bin Laden got whacked before 2017 so he wasn't around for a Trump bromance. That would have been awkward(er).

(This is a joke, by the way. Yes, I am aware it's obvious, but you never know around here. :^p)

Now another British flagged oil tanker seized...
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-iran-tanker-britain-second/second-tanker-in-gulf-turns-sharply-towards-iran-refinitiv-data-shows-idUSKCN1UE2CM
A second oil tanker, the British-operated, Liberian-flagged Mesdar, turned sharply north towards Iran’s coast on Friday afternoon after passing westward through the Strait of Hormuz into the Gulf, according to Refinitiv tracking data.
The turn took place at about 1600 GMT, the data showed, about 40 minutes after a similar course shift by the Stena Impero tanker that Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said they had captured.

The message from the Revolutionary Guard comes after the Gibraltar Supreme Court decided that an Iranian oil tanker seized in Gibraltar after suspicion that it was going to Syria with oil in violation of EU sanctions may be held for another 30 days, writes AFP news agency.

You're right, I didn't say which part is so true. It's gone into the Floridian Archive to be misconstrued later.

Incorrect, with added underlining:

    @realDonaldTrump

    .@FoxNews is at it again. So different from what they used to be during the 2016 Primaries, & before - Proud Warriors! Now new Fox Polls, which have always been terrible to me (they had me losing BIG to Crooked Hillary), have me down to Sleepy Joe. Even considering.....

word "fake" missing

"Fake", biased, incorrect, unprofessional, etc.

Means the same .

Except to those Never/Always Trumpet's who believe their "fake", biased, incorrect, unprofessional News [sic} sources.

They are, as always confirmed in these threads, the same in their inability to escape their alternate reality.

Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif will visit Stockholm on August 20 and 21, according to the Foreign Ministry. It happens in a situation when the Iran-US relationship is very tense and several vessels have been seized in the area - including the Swedish-owned oil tanker Stena Impero.
And US authorities have filed an application to seize the Iranian vessel Grace 1, which has been seized by the UK in Gibraltar since July, reports AFP and Reuters.

Grace 1? Such a name sounds unusual for an Iranian ship.
And, if the UK already has seized it, why does the US want it?
