Iran Vows To Seize British Tanker In Response To Seizure Of Iranian One In Gibraltar

Super Tanker Grace 1. IMAGE: Tony Hogwood/MarineTraffic.com

Iranian forces should seize a British oil tanker if London doesn’t release the Iranian tanker which was illegally seized by its forces, Mohsen Rezaee, the secretary of Iran’s Expediency Discernment Council (EDC), said on July 5.

“The Islamic Revolution has never been an initiator of tension during its 40-year-old history, however, it has not hesitated to respond to bullies and thugs,” Rezaee said in a tweet, and added: “If Britain doesn’t return the Iranian tanker, the duty of responsible [Iranian] bodies is to seize a British oil tanker in a retaliatory measure.”

A detachment of the Royal Marines and Gibraltar’s authorities seized the Iranian supertanker Grace 1 in the morning of July 4.

Gibraltar’s chief minister Fabian Picardo claimed that Grace 1 was violating the EU’s sanctions on Damascus. However, acting Spanish Foreign Minister, Josep Borrell, revealed that the supertanker was seized upon a request by the U.S. to the UK.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry summoned the British ambassador in Tehran, Rob Macaire, over the illegal seizure of Grace 1, and called for the immediate release of the supertanker.

Rezaee’s threats indicate that Iran is not planning to tolerate the incident. This could lead to a political crisis between the EU and Tehran.

    Wait …
    USA is sanctioning Russia and Iran … and Syria …
    That’s why EU (USA vassal) is pirating a iranian tanker.
    If Iran responds, maybe the price of oil will rise.
    USA is sanctioning Russia and Iran … and therefore the oil price may rise … very smart. :-)

    • verner

      don’t forget venezuela and north korea. sanctions are of dubious value and the way the disintegrating states of A issues its fatwas, it tells you who the bitches are and who resolutely maintains it’s sovereignty, which the white house idiots can’t have.

      What has Spain said, as it happened in their waters.

      • FreePalestine_BDS

        Spain’s waters? Surely the ship was in UK’s waters since Gibraltar is UK?

    • christianblood

      Absolutely right!

    • TiredOfBsToo

      Is it time for Iran to begin armed escorts of it’s tankers? Maybe a squad of fighters onboard armed with manpads and anti-ship missiles. They certainly have the right to fight pirates attacking their shipping.

      • zman

        Absolutely! I commented yesterday when this broke that the Iranians have every right to sanction the UK for this and seize UK oil shipments. What will the impotent Brits do then? Cry to Bolton for help? And these assholes have the unmitigated gall to harp on about freedom of the seas and security for shipping? Hint to the UK military: the Iranians are not Argentinians.

      USA is illegally in Syria, so if it would have to do anything with international law, then EU would have to do sanctions against USA.

      The EU put themselves in this situation. Just remember where the CoL is…and what they represent and control. The UK is still EU and a big part of the problem. No one forced them to seize the ship. Strange the EU doing this and supposedly trying to circumvent sanctions at the same time. The Spanish spilled the beans, the US sicced the Brits on them. The UK is even sicker and more corrupt than the US.

        Ah ….
        US blew 400 Iranians out of the sky in 1988 when US Navy shot down a Passenger Jet over Gulf. US has refused ever to apologize or even acknowledge its guilt but when sued by Iran before International Courts of Justice in 1996, US was forced to pay $60 Million in compensation for the illegal and criminal acts of terrorism committed by US Navy personnel when they shot down the Iran-Air Flight.

    • FreePalestine_BDS

      It is high time the EU decides where it stands. In any case it is high time it stands on its own feet and stands up to US diktat. The longer that decision is delayed, the harder it will be to become independent.

    Great, southfront publishes a threat issued by a member of Iran’s Parliament which has about as much standing as a comment by Tom Cotton on FOX News and ignores the more reasonable and measured statements issued through proper channels.
    http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13980414000267 – Iranian Foreign Ministry

    “acting Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell said Gibraltar detained the supertanker Grace 1 after a request by the United States to Britain….
    Since Iran’s tanker was carrying fuel and oil to Syrian people for solely humanitarian purposes, the measure taken by the British government is not only illegal, but also inhumane.”

    • Gregory Casey

      The seizure isn’t actually covered by either EU or UK Sanctions Legislation. What IS Sanctioned is the Export of Oil by Syria NOT its Import by Syria. The Seizure is, therefore wholly illegal and an Act of Piracy. See my Post above.

          A pity South Front would’t actually publish a piece setting out the facts and law governing EU Sanctions against Syria as it is those Sanctions that are allegedly being applied by Gibraltar in pursuance of the arrest of the Ship. Those EU & British Sanctions against Syria prohibit the export of Oil by Syria but they do NOT prohibit the import of Oil by Syria.

  • Gregory Casey

    I spent a few hours yesterday going through the entire of the EU Regulations imposing Sanctions on Syria dating back to 2011 and 2012. Nowhere in any of those Regulations is the IMPORT of Oil by Syria the subject matter of Sanctions. In fact, the Sanctions are specifically fixed on preventing the Export of Oil by Syria & the importation of equipment related to its Oil industry, essentially to prevent Syria availing of its own Oil resources in the event of a breakdown of equipment.
    Accordingly there is NO Basis in EU Law for the seizure of this Ship and insofar as I am aware, the British Sanctions reflect the EU Sanctions …….. given that the call for EU Sanctions initially came from UK & France, something that should be to their eternal shame, those EU Sanctions are an exact mirror of the UK Sanctions.
    Accordingly the seizure of this ship by UK Government with assistance of its puppet in Gibraltar is whollly illegal. Given that the entire of the pressure behind the seizure came from US Pressure funneled through psycho-Bolton & Pimpeo the fact that the seizure is illegal should come as no surprise to anyone. Clearly psycho-Bolton & Pimpeo decided to seize this Tanker seeing its cargo as a means whereby they could reclaim the costs associated with the downing of the US Drone by Iran 2 weeks ago. Any Admiralty Judge worth his salt would Order the immediate release of this Tanker upon Application being made to him/her but …….. have no doubt but that any Admiralty Judge assigned to hear the Application will be under ‘starter’s orders’ from Whitehall, DoD & Foreign Office to ensure the Criminal Actions of both UK and US are upheld and withheld from scrutiny.

          I thought not.
          I don’t suppose you ever heard either of the fact that the US were required to pay up $60 Million as Compensation in 1996 when sued before International Courts of Justice for US Criminality and the murder of almost 400 innocent civilians?

          Wrong again, The US policy is to punish with sanctions “any” country that violates US sanctions against Iran. What good is a sanction if every other country violates it?

          • Monte George Jr

            “US Policy” has no legal standing in international (or British or EU) law. The interdiction of the Iranian tanker is PIRACY, pure and simple.

          • Honest Deplorable

            It’s not a legal matter. US has imposed sanctions against Iran and “any” country that attempts to do business with them. It’s not a matter that will go to courts. It’s just a policy that the US will economically punish any country in violation of these sanctions. Syria attempted to do just that. The refinery in Syria is owned by an entity forbidden to do business with Iran. It’s that simple.

          • Monte George Jr

            It is either a ‘legal matter’ or a prelude to war with the Eurasian block. Neither the US nor any of it’s ‘allies’ has any right, authority or license to sanction other countries. To do so is an arrogant act of piracy and warfare. Aggressive warfare of this kind is defined in International law as the ultimate criminal activity. It is also the ultimate expression of rank, inexcusable arrogance.

            Whether you are religious or not, Proverbs 16:18 offers some useful advice on this subject:

            “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”

            Just a word to the wise, which is probably wasted on you.

          The ship in question was seized by BRM at the request of the US State Department.

          • Ronald

            “Was seized by BRM “. An Act of Piracy on the High Seas regardless of who requested it.
            The BRM ,, as in Britain as a member of the EU claimed the ship was breaking EU sanctions against Syria.
            Eu sanctions forbid buying Syrian oil, Not selling oil to Syria.

      • zman

        Then Trump needs to dump the sanctions because Iran has no plans to produce nukes and with low enriched uranium, can’t anyway. The most they could do is a dirty bomb and they don’t need a reactor for that. The nuclear weapon BS is the same old US/Israel propaganda that they continue to pump life into, despite being a corpse for years…similar to the Iraqi WMDs…which some idiots still believe. All the while using DU munitions to the detriment of Iraqis, Syrians, Yemenis and their own troops.

    This is Britian’s vassal role – to do US’ foreign policy bidding in Europe. In this case, to try and further implement aggressive US anti-Iranian foreign policy within EU, as latter have been largely sitting on fence over hostile US anti-Iranian policies. Here, Britain seeks to manufacture yet another ‘crisis’ that at least partially involves fellow EU member Spain, by proximity of Gibraltar, to try and wedge EU and Iran.

        A pity those “obeying” cannot read. The EU Sanctions against Syria do not sanction or target the IMPORT of Oil by Syria; they sanction and prohibit the EXPORT of Oil by Syria.

          The KEY point.

    Iran…land of the free…..oh…wait a minute…

      another jew troll is blocked

      • zman

        Yeah…and his cohorts as well. They’ve broken the bank this month, they must have gotten another payment from US taxpayers. They’ve gotten desperate now, they not only have multiple personas, but new employees as well.

  • chris chuba

    Too bad there wasn’t a company of about 30 IRGC members on board the tanker, man for man I bet they are more than a match for the ‘British marines’; maybe next time.

    BTW it is absurd to claim that the seizure is legal just because the EU has ‘sanctions’, they only have jurisdiction over EU member states and their ability to conduct business. They do not have legal authority to block transactions between two non-EU member states or to treat food, medicine, or energy the same as contraband such as weapons or heroin. Food, medicine and energy for a civilian population is covered under the Geneva Conventions.

    • PilotDave

      IRGC ? Dude, you got some bad hash in your Bong… In point of fact, Saddam’s “Revolutionary Guard” kicked the IRGC out of Iraq, and were later defeated twice by US Marines.

        Piss Off Hasbararat

      • Monte George Jr

        “kicked the IRGC out of Iraq”?? The IRGC is still in Iraq (and Syria) fighting and defeating the Empire’s terrorist proxies. What was that about Hash and Bongs? I hope you are not really a pilot, are you, Dave?

    • Gregory Casey

      Actually, EU Sanctions being relied upon by the British Sanction ONLY the EXPORT of Oil from Syria. They do not Sanction the IMPORT OF Oil by Syria.

    “The Islamic Revolution has never been an initiator of tension during its 40-year-old history.” At least one terrorist has not lost his sense of humor.

    • Monte George Jr

      How about some facts to support your slander of the Iranians?

      • zman

        Fucking trolls do not need facts, just shekels. They’re only here to be blocked.

  • Wanklord

    “…Iranian forces should seize a British oil tanker if London doesn’t release the Iranian tanker which was illegally seized by its forces…” there is a saying that reads ACTION FOLLOWED BY WORDS, meaning the IRGC should first seize a British oil tanker and then, announce to the press such retaliatory measure. In a few words, Iran is doing the opposite: whining instead of taking concrete steps.

        Man, they’re everywhere. They must really be scared of something. This is the biggest gathering of trolls since the first FF CW attacks. I just love blocking them, hopefully their masters see they’ve been blocked and reduces their pay accordingly…nah, wishful thinking…they’ll just give them a raise and new scripts.

    Seizing a British ship is hardly the way to win friends and support in Europe. It will only help isolate the ayatollah regime even more.

    • Monte George Jr

      It is not the “ayatollah regime” which is/will be isolated. The EU is slowly being “…exited” into oblivion, while Eurasia is building a mighty alliance which will ultimately span the continent from the Atlantic to the pacific. Fear and hatred of the US and Israel which has been building for decades is reaching a fever pitch worldwide, while the US inches slowly toward civil war. It is YOU (and me) who will be isolated.

  • Hotmike

    Seems to be a lot of trolls, commies and “toilet trout” posting today. Iran is under sanctions (all legal and deserved) so they can’t sell oil idiots. They are definitely the biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the middle east. I know you lefty snowflakes have a problem with that but you should at least try to stick to the facts. Now you can can go melt due to your beloved climate change hoax.

    • Tommy Jensen

      Mirror mirror.

    • Monte George Jr

      The US, Israel and Saudi Arabia are the biggest sponsors of terror (ISIS, Al Queda, Al Nusra, Al Zinki, etc.) in the middle east and many other regions as well. Iran has assisted Syria to defeat the terrorist proxy armies of the AZ alliance in Syria. They have assisted Hezbollah in repelling a series of threatened and actual invasions of Lebanon by Zionist invaders/occupiers of Palestine. Iran is not a supporter of terrorism; YOU are!

      The US/EU/UK have no ‘legal’ authority to impose “sanctions” on any foreign nation. The “sanctions” are naked aggression and piracy, and crimes against humanity.

      And how do these views comport with those of the Snowflakes? I don’t know any snowflakes or Democrats who agree with anything I’ve just said, or with me in general. They are the most unaware, Kool-aide laden people know of. They Love the Zionists of Israel and are the first to defend the Nazis of Ukraine (go figure)! They are at their least critical of the Donald when he is bombing someone. They ARE Hillary lovers, after all!

      • Hotmike

        Huh? Someone leave you out in the sun too long George, or has age just gotten the better of you.

        • Monte George Jr

          I am overwhelmed by your stunning logic and masterful presentation of the facts! You besmirch me sir! Yes, yes …

          Is that the best you can do???

    • zman

      One more troll…to block. The amount of trolls appearing here and on Al Masdar are indicative of the fear the Zionist cabal are experiencing. You can always tell when they have something coming up, are scared they are going to take a hit politically or going to be exposed. In poker, it’s called a tell. From the amount of trolls and their upclick army, it’s obvious it’s a full court press, with all assets mobilized. Their confrontation with Iran is being propagandized into Iranian aggression, although Iran has done nothing…well, except for opposing their geopolitical war mongering, protecting themselves and killing off the west’s covert ISIS army. As every leader on the earth knows the truth, this crap is for the sheeple.

  • zman

    Wow…Israel is breaking the bank today! Massive troll attack, they must have gotten another big money drop from the Trumpster. New trolls, old trolls and trolls with 3 or 4 names. You sure can tell when they’re worried their shit is going to come back and bite them.

  • Sabre22

    The brits should send in a Q ship. That would be interesting and fun to watch

  • GimmieDat

    When trump wins in 2020 I predict he will unload on Iran with the help of Israel.

  • John

    Mistake!!

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    This is the same shit the UK did two Germany back in the 19-teens.
    Iran has become the new Germany, a scape goat that the UK demonizes.

  • RichardD

    After looking at the applicable law and circumstances. My assessment is that the UK has declared war on Iran with the commencement of a naval blockade. And that Iran is within it’s rights to respond with appropriate measures which could include the seizure of British ships.

    • Gregory Casey

      Agreed Richard.

  • CaptRebel
