Payback: Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Seize Two Greek Tankers In Persian Gulf

Image via Mehr News Agency.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

BanderiteLivesDon'tMatter

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

JHKdad

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.
