On May 27, the naval forces of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) seized two Greek oil tankers in the Persian Gulf.
“The Revolutionary Guards Navy today seized two Greek tankers for violations in Gulf waters,” said a Guards statement, quoted by the state news agency IRNA.
Shipping journal Lloyd’s List identified the two tankers as Prudent Warrior and Delta Poseidon. IRGC forces boarded both tankers with helicopters
A crew of 24 were on board Prudent Warrior, which was carrying a shipment of oil loaded from the Iraqi port of Basra to the US. The tanker is owned by Polembros Shipping in Greece. Delta Poseidon, which had a crew of 25 on board, also loaded oil from Basra. The tanker, which is owned by the Greece-based Delta Tankers, was heading to Greece. Greek nationals were aboard both tankers.
Greece’s Foreign Ministry said it protested to the Iranian ambassador in Athens over the “violent taking over of two Greek-flagged ships” in the Persian Gulf.
“These acts effectively amount to acts of piracy,” the ministry said in a statement.
In April, Greek authorities seized the Iranian-flagged tanker Lana in their waters under pressure by the US. The oil shipment of Lana was transferred on May 25 to another tanker off the port of Karystos on the Aegean Sea island of Evia. Iran threatened to take “punitive action” in response to the unlawful seizure.
The incident comes amid heightened tensions between the US and Iran, who have been in talks over the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal.
The IRGC seizure of Prudent Warrior and Delta Poseidon was clearly a response to the seizure of Lana by Greek authorities. Iran has demonstrated time after time that it will not tolerate any attempts to restrict its ability to export oil. Despite this, US allies continue to harass Iranian oil tankers.

Sometimes, a “Lol” is just enough to summarize international events of importance:-) can nonetheless also be optionally supplemented by a “karma, b****” but not mandatory and to the discretion of the author.
yesss! exactly…..karma is a very strict accountant my friend…..
Iran is helping Russia sell its oil via a very complex international sanctions busting operation and the US has failed to either harm Russian economy, let alone Iranian, so the US pirates seized an Iranian flagged tanker via Greek slaves and thought that Iran will not retaliate, well Iran upped the ante. Any shooting war in the Persian Gulf will immediately push crude oil to $400-500 a barrel at a time the US is totally bankrupt and in recession. American deadbeat economy will simply collapse.
Stop lying you low life scum. Iran can’t even help themselves.
observationally, they just did, to two ships and the oil in them both. TTFN
Shlomo shrieks….but can’t make reality stop.
Dumbass kid, get a life you loser, I told your mom, she should have swallowed.
Iran’s just lazy ass doc, that’s its fault. Not motivated enough to just go get it. They just wait for shit to fall in their lap from de heavens you know. The laziness is now getting annoying.
If the US lacks fuel, they can not fight wars either.
All peace-loving people must prevent all oil transportation to the United States.
Yes, it also prevents enlistment in the military. The American Zionist Jew government can’t fight wars without soldiers.
Also, Muhammed, step up the attacks on Jewish land, will you? What are you Arabs waiting for? Attack harder.
Didn’t you hear about what Sayed Nasrallah said couple days ago? If the Zionist March harms al Aqsa mosque, he said a huge bomb will go off in Israel.
but how will that happen bro? Why hasn’t that already happened right?
Brah brah brah
Ahson the self- hating whore Ahson is AN INDIAN DALIT BOY WEARING BROWN STAINED SMELLY DHOTI ENJOYS DEFECATING IN OPEN NEAR RAILWAY TRACKS
its ok no? here wes chattin it up with lower castes right? ……right? …..so why da angst?
Ahson AKA Indian Dalit Boy please wash your brown stained smelly dhoti first then pleasant smell will bring a SUPRISE FROM HEZBOLLAH
you got nothing to do with Iran. You are Al-Baqistani dalit. Modi is your new PM.
Indeed, it is time to call the Zionist bluff and engage them in a costly land war of attrition. The US will not lift sanctions on Iran and is now escalating drone strikes from Iraqi Kurdistan and Azerbaijan. Iran must hit Erbil airport daily and shut it down and the start the resistance in Iraq and Syria where US occupation forces are looting oil on a industrial scale.
Easier said than done no? Let me tell you, nothing of the sort you say will happen.
If Hezb seizes power they would allow sex reassignment surgery (see khomenei, sistani, khoei, fadlallah fatwas), prostitution (mutah), prostitution for children (https://imgur.com/a/VwFwo1T), abortion, polygamy, etc…
Lol. So basically what he tried to say is that Israel can attack any other places and kill anyone they wish, just don’t harm al Aqsa mosque or one bom will go off somewhere in Israel, on the countryside perhaps. Pathetic fucking Iranians.
lol. threats from arabs have always been the thinnest, hot air from hot heads. mother of all wastes of time. if the arab stood any chance of obliterating the jewish state they certainly blew it in the 6 day, and have never recovered yet. If you wish to continue living in trash, starving, dying of diseases and all those wonderful birth defects you lot receive as rewards from god, then by all means continue wasting the arab youths future for another 70 years and see what your open air prison system looks like then. as long as the arab continues on his genocidal path, I see no problem with the jews sending you back to hell on a friday night 18 seconds after prayer. in 75 years the jew built a bastion of democracy in the darkness of judea’s desert in the same 75 years the arab has turned his lands into a junk yard by spending all his time fighting his genetic brother. two jackasses in a pod.
Secretary General Sayyed Nasrallah warning the Israeli enemy about any violation of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.
Sayyed NAsrallah had warned during his Wednesday televised speech on Resistance and Liberation Day that any violation of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock will lead to a regional explosion. he didn’t say anything about a bomb going off in Israel, source english.almanar.com.lb
They can’t attack any harder. Iranians would rather get raped, killed and robbed, they wouldn’t go to war. They’re cowards in nature but they tell themselves that they are peace loving people. Lmfao
Stupid Iranian trolls are out in force today. The US seized your ship fools, not Greek. You cowards have no balls to seize US ships, instead you picked on a smaller country.
Your mom should have swallowed.
Don’t you make it out that these muzlim hendi are Iranian trolls now. How dare you? Don’t make me come down there doc……
Love it :) made my week
U.S. Empire and its lackeys and vassals look increasingly weak.
Weak as their senile president…
They are as weak as the Jewish minority that puppeteers them. Oh wait, fucking Jews. They have a lot of power. God damn it.
Σαν έλληνας πολύ γούσταρα αυτή την εξέλιξη As a greek, i very much liked this. Stick it to the oligarchs
Iran is no longer playing games. Russia’s crushing defeat of the US, EU, NATO in Ukraine has emboldened Iran, North Korea, China who is now literally dissing the living shit out of the US every chance it gets. Yesterday China named the US as the world’s biggest and dirtiest bully in the world. The axis of resistance sees that the US, EU and NATO are crumbling, bankrupt empires. Iran is actually stronger than ever having China and Russia’s backing both financially and militarily. India keeps buying more and more oil from Russia. The anglo-homos are out of ideas lol. Oh and Poland is running out of coal now hahaaaaa.
How the hell can Poland run out of coal?
No money no coal. If not the workers work for free when all prices rise.
Riceboug You should watch ARCHIE BUNKER SHOW AND ANSWER IS THERE WILL MEATHEAD
where can I find China naming the US as the biggest bully?
Right here https://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/202205/26/WS628f37ada310fd2b29e5f2d6.html
Iranians are no longer playing games? WTF? Lol are you serious? Ok so they should start begging now.
Oh Nose..what will the pickles national airforce do without coal for their jets and tanks.
Plates are shifting and all power players are taking their positions, would be like the Geopolitics Olympic. Dont have nothing against the greeks the home of PLATO, but I like it far more Hammurabi, he was guided by an ancient G0d then was Persia and now Iran were their tribe.
Greeks defended europe historically,just no more now with that cia gimp pm (period) iRAN HAS EVERY RIGHT TO TAKE THEIR SHIPS,SEENS USA STOLE OIL COLLABORATED BY FKN IT!
LGBTQ REMEMBER +80% OF GREEK POPULATION HAS TURKISH DNA AS PER JOHN HOPKINS UNIVERSITY GENOME STUDIES SO THEY TEND BE MORE EUROPEANS THAN EUROPEAN
Actually according to most DNA tests, the majority of Turks have Greek DNA
this is funny because between jews and arabs, they both have it wrong according to DNA science. Jews are the arabs, and the arabs are the jews. which is beyond hilarious, but the second best part is, they are the same jerkoffs, just differrent haircuts and different demons to pray to. no wonder they are both so effing pathetic
your stupid lower caste comments. Why don’t you just revert to hendu?
These acts effectively amount to acts of piracy,” the ministry said in a statement. Imagine that 😆
Good,its the only language the forces of arrogance understand.
What language of forces? Are you expecting the chicken shit Iranians defend themselves? They need help but they should stop bragging of what they won’t be able to do or what they don’t have.
Has anyone noticed the western MSM replaced their headlines from Ukraine crisis into other trivial issues..? Well clearly they were veering away from the global concerns of war given the fact that these sanctionists are losing big time with their narrative falling apart. Everybody knew the real score whereby China Russia Iran and India are laughing at the colossal stupidity of NATO EU and satellites, even Hungary and Turkey are undermining the ‘invincibility’ of these mobs. Capitulation is well on the way where Russia will emerge as the winner.
Haven’t seen anything you are talking about.
Nobody respects Jewmurica anymore.
At least Jewmurica protects their citizens and its assets, unlike the stupid fuck Iranians.
Excellent DONT TOUCH ANY RUSSIAN OR IRANIAN TANKER
Just seized one from stupidass Iranians.
Iran doesn’t do things the way Russia does. Russia tolerates abuses for years and then reacts strongly after it was abused for years. In the case of Ukraine at least 8 years. Iran on the other hand responds with in few months, for this reason harassing Iran is not profitable.
Iran and Russia are strategic thinkers, Zionist think off of their emotion. A Zionist preserves a win as attacking fast with little damage, Iran and Russia calculate, and strike when the times right. Iran and Russia pride don’t overpower their patience, unlike Zionist
If you have a parabola it is punishment directly for looking at foreign television, hurray!
Iran like Russia play Chess.
Both are fail States lead by incompetent coward imbeciles.
The final destiny of all past great and temporarily successful empires are the future of the current empire of the USA. Destroyed by its arrogant confidence that it is infallible. But slowly the moral fabric of its society unravels and from that it is doomed to fail. Add to this the financial crisis, a global food and essential commodities shortage affecting the global food production and supply chain. Essential crops of grains and legumes are affecting our food security. Increasing food prices, fuel and energy, chaos, sickness, warfare, political misadventures and on and on the list goes on. Perfect storm for the global reset that so few dared to mention only to be ridiculed by the paid trolls or the intellectually challenged, dumbed down, brainwashed sheeple. Falling financial markets, inflation, recession, rising cost of living and interest rates are adding pressure to families already struggling to survive and to keep themselves fed and under a warm roof. Something will give sooner or later or maybe the wheels are already in motion and has gained so much traction that it cannot be stopped.
I don’t see any of this happening isolated to current events, if you are talking about trends for 100 years things change, but only for the long run.
20% of the US is poor. However in your Al-Baqistan, 80% are poor. You understand this, don’t you?
LOL, America’s slave puppet govt in Athens getting punished! :D Greek politicians are feeble-minded clowns and cowards who deserve no respect!
Best comment of the post,worse government Greece ever had (period)Gutless panzies lotta the flogs!
bs-alarm again 🚨🚨
Worse Greek pm,ever,dumb as fk,absolutely owned by biden,utter disgrace to the patriot greeks!
I r a n W a v e
“These acts effectively amount to acts of piracy,” the ministry said in a statement.
Hahhahaha – as if they aren’t stealing Iranian oil/gas. Bitch to yanquis your masters’ Greek pigs.
Spreading like a plague of corruption. Creeping like the snakes in the grass.
IRAN MUST SEIZE 10 OIL TANKERS FOR EVERY ONE SEIZED BY zio Christian west GOONS
but why would you say all this as an Al-Baqistani? You do realize Modi is your new PM right? your fight is not with the Zionists or Christian West Zio’s right? Your concern is how not to get reverted back to a dalit hendu no? Yet all we hear from you is anxious mouthing off? You know what that tells us?……..that you nervous about your prospects. Doc……..you seeing what I’m seeing here……? I need you to intervene here decisively! You can sort this out in one fell swoop………Don’t disappoint us now…….
Khomeini released a fatwa in 1980 allowing transgender surgery, his successor Khamenei confirmed this. Fadlallah, Sistani, Khoei, etc… Are also make the same or similar fatwas on the permissibility of SRS for men with psychological issues. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mluAsZFy5Ls
Your bullshit doesn’t work here, Jew.
Are you suffering from transgender issues now doc? since you chose to bring it up here on a geo-political topic?
When you are USSA’S idiot bitch…then you will get bitch slapped. An eye for an ear and 2 tankers for a tanker. All evil leads back to the sewer in Washing town.
Remember the US war game with Iran as target that didn’t end so well for the blue team ? Yep , it’s not a game anymore … so , as the gamers says : GLHF
