USA: Tankers in the UAE exploded Iran

The United States officially accused Iran of organizing an attack on tankers located in the territorial waters of the United Arab Emirates. The accusations were made by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.




According to the chief American diplomat, Tehran purposefully organized attacks on tankers in order to cause a rapid increase in the cost of oil in the world market. After all, Iran is one of the main suppliers of "black gold", but today its export opportunities are largely limited by American sanctions.

Thus, the United States supported the line of Saudi Arabia, since it was the Saudis who first accused Iran of attacking the tankers. Representatives of Riyadh promised to respond to the attack "with all their might."

Then, the Special Representative of the US President for National Security, John Bolton, said that in the UAE there was allegedly a diversion with mines against tankers.

Recall that on May 12, a series of explosions thundered in the port of the emirate of Fujairah (UAE). As a result of the sabotage, several tankers caught fire at once. From 7 to 10 ships were engulfed in flames. Representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the UAE immediately assessed the incident as a diversion.

Fujairah port is located 140 km south of the Strait of Hormuz, which plays a key role in the transportation of oil. Up to a third of all world crude oil exported from the Gulf countries passes here.

    Not so long ago, a journalist caught Pompeo in a lie. "So what," Pompeo said in response to the journalist. My lies were in the interests of the United States.

    Or maybe the United States blew up the tankers. After all, it will be great when Iran begins to fight with the UAE. This is how many weapons they will need for war. And the UAE will buy these weapons from ...? Of course, the United States, and Iran, will be sold under the guise of, like during the Second World War, it was sold to Hitler. Ancient Eastern wisdom, in this regard, reads:

    Destroy the enemy - valor. To destroy the enemy with his own weapon is double valor. To make enemies destroy each other is the highest valor.
