Pompeo: U.S. Believes Iran Is Responsible For Attack On Tankers In Gulf Of Oman

AP Photo / ISNA

State Secretary Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for the attack on two Japanese oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. He claimed that Iran wants to end “successful maximum pressure campaign” of the US sanctions.

“This is only the latest in the series of attacks instigated by the Republic of Iran and its surrogates against American allies and interests. They should be understood in the context of four years of unprovoked aggression against freedom-loving nations,” he said.

Earlier on the same day, Marshall Islands-flagged Front Altair and Panama-flagged Kokuka Courageous were rocked by explosions in the Gulf of Oman.

There are no confirmed details regarding what actually happened, but one of the vessels was reportedly hit by a torpedo. Iran said it had rescued 44 sailors from the distressed tankers and called the incident “suspicious.”

The US Navy provided a contrary claim saying that its forces were involved in the rescue operation, not Iranian ones.

“U.S. Naval Forces in the region received two separate distress calls at 6:12 a.m. local time and a second one at 7:00 a.m.

U.S. Naval Forces Central Command received the calls from the M/V Front Altair and M/V Kokuka Courageous, who were operating in international waters of the Gulf of Oman.

USS Bainbridge (DDG 96) was operating in the vicinity and provided immediate assistance to the M/V Kokuka Courageous.

Twenty-one mariners from the M/V Kokuka Courageous, who abandoned ship, are currently aboard USS Bainbridge. A Navy P-8 is also providing support,” CENTCOM said.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif labeled the incident as “suspicious” hinting that this may have been a provocation.

    “What’s in it?’ said the Queen.

    `I haven’t opened it yet,’ said the White Rabbit, `but it seems to be a letter, written by the prisoner to–to somebody.’

    `It must have been that,’ said the King, `unless it was written to nobody, which isn’t usual, you know.’

    `Who is it directed to?’ said one of the jurymen.

    `It isn’t directed at all,’ said the White Rabbit; `in fact, there’s nothing written on the outside.’ He unfolded the paper as he spoke, and added `It isn’t a letter, after all: it’s a set of verses.’

    `Are they in the prisoner’s handwriting?’ asked another of they jurymen.

    `No, they’re not,’ said the White Rabbit, `and that’s the queerest thing about it.’ (The jury all looked puzzled.)

    `He must have imitated somebody else’s hand,’ said the King. (The jury all brightened up again.)

    `Please your Majesty,’ said the Knave, `I didn’t write it, and they can’t prove I did: there’s no name signed at the end.’

    `If you didn’t sign it,’ said the King, `that only makes the matter worse. You must have meant some mischief, or else you’d have signed your name like an honest man.’

    There was a general clapping of hands at this: it was the first really clever thing the King had said that day.

    `That proves his guilt,’ said the Queen.”

    Bolton and I warned against these attacks would happen if everybody continued to just sit on their thumbs without acting and doing nothing.

    Because nobody would listen, two innocent Japanese oil tankers were hit by hypersonic precision torpedos from aggressive hostile dictatorship countries, and United States and its Allies are once more jeopardized in our freedom of navigation in International waterways.

      you are just a sorry ass loser behind a keyboard, or perhaps, yet another hasbara troll, you are a buffoon to everyone here, get psychiatric assistance nut job, and hey genius, what is the advantage for Iran to hit japan tankers while they are having a visit from the actual Japanese president ?, YOU STUPID RETARD.

      I would not be so sure they are innocent virgin tankers. I heard those two had a collision where one rammed the other in the rear. Does not sound very innocent to me, I see through their charade of trolling the seas of sodom and gammorah. but I suppose no amount of hedonistic excursions in the seedy red sea lane districts could prepare you for the hypersonic precision torpedo infamous for its deep penetration capabilities.

      • S Melanson

        A good point actually, except for what I see as the problem of motivation for the attack. Can you tell me what is in it for Iran to do this?

        • Toronto Tonto

          Oil baby oil and Iran and the Russian terrorists would love a higher price , DUH

          • S Melanson

            Fair enough. Issue is that this would save Saudi Arabia from financial Armageddon. And if Iran is backing the Houthis including even money, advisors and weapon systems which I assume is your position, why would Iran save Saudi’s from ruin due to costs of Yemen war.

          • bla

            Are you retarded ? or jsut another sorry ass hasbara troll ? man you guys try so hard., change the strategy and become a circus, you guys are just laughable

          • Dog lover.

            Both.

          • Luke Hemmming

            And so would Saudi Arabia
            considering they contribute the larger percentage of oil from that region. But of the 2 tankers 1 was carrying methanol, an alcohol not oil and the other naptha , a product to dilute thick oil which is a low value product. So why did the oil price spike? Oil market manipulation by none other than Saudi Arabia that’s why. Also it helps the false narrative to blame Iran for anything and everything so the fake ass jews and satanic child rapists (israel zionists) can get their war they have been wanting to wage for years.

            In my opinion, Only the mullahs’ terror regime is responsible for sabotage. The Russians want stability in the Persian Gulf and they don’t cooperate with the terrorist organization like the IRGC.

        So let’s wait and see what Washington does, or doesn’t do. Because if Washington really “believes” that Iran carried out these dastardly attacks “on the freedom of navigation” then Washington will most surely act, right? And if Washington doesn’t act, (which is what I suspect), well it should be more than obvious, to all, what Trump, Pompeo and Bolton really “believe”, right?

      • zman

      • Bob

        Yeah right, Iran is going to attack Japanese tanker vessels – that actually transport IRANIAN oil exports to Japan. You are likely Israeli, and you consider Iran a primary regional enemy, safe to assume you’ll accuse Iran of anything, anytime, and with extreme prejudice.

    .To determine who commits a crime, look for who benefits.

    US shale oil producers are going bankrupt because the price of oil is below production costs and the US stock market was falling.

    Today because of this terror attack, the price of oil has risen substantially and the US stock market has also risen.

    I’m sure the whole thinking world knows that the US is behind this attack, but no one will dare to say it out loud.

    • PZIVJ

      Based just on this one news item the stock market should go down.
      If oil goes up because of rising demand, then it would make sense. :)

      Who relies on oil the most ???? pooface and pals .

      • Sinbad2

        Who relies on oil the most ????

        The USA, the US is the largest oil consumer, most of the global oil companies are American.
        The US has used petrodollars as a way of supporting the US dollar.
        The USA attacks other oil producers Libya Iraq Iran Venezuela and Russia as a way of controlling the oil market.

        You know once the US economy collapses, the US military will also collapse.
        Without the Americans to protect the Jewish invaders in the Middle East, the Arabs will slaughter all the Jews.
        The good news is you will have a holocaust II to whinge about.

      • Putin Apologist

        Wait a second, Canada exports more oil than Iran… are you sure it wasn’t the Canadians?

        Saudi Arabia: US$182.5 billion (15.9% of total crude oil exports)
        Russia: $129 billion (11.3%)
        Iraq: $91.1 billion (7.9%)
        Canada: $66.9 billion (5.8%)
        United Arab Emirates: $66.8 billion (5.8%)
        Kuwait: $49.8 billion (4.3%)
        United States: $47.2 billion (4.1%)

        Venezuela: $26.4 billion (2.3%)

      • Aphelion

        Who relies on oil the most? Very easy: The US, by a large margin.

        Largest oil consumers in the world:
        USA: 20% of world total
        China: 13%
        India: 5%
        Japan: 4%

        And, if you want to rather blame the largest oil producer:
        USA: 18%
        Saudi Arabia: 12%
        Russia: 11%
        Canada: 5%

        And if you didn’t mean “consumer” or “producer”, but the largest oil “exporter”, it seems you need to be blaming Saudi Arabia. So which is it? Who are you trying to blame here? The USA or Saudi Arabia? I admit that whichever you choose, I may actually agree with you for once…

        Yeah precisely why they call it the petro-dollar, duh.

    Pompeo blaming Iran and holding them responsible because the US had to take that false flag action.

  • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

    Iran is playing us all for fools. They want us to believe it’s a false flag but in reality they are lashing out at their neighbors since they’re being DESTROYED by effective sanctions!

    Did some serious damage this time so a serious escalation. i suppose to be expected, as the previous false flag, I mean another heinous Iranian backed terrorist attack, did not generate the desired public outcry for punishing Iran.

    CNN had an interesting interview:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PY_zg4nNnew&t=407s

    One complement I have I will mention first. Notice the reaction of the pundits when the interviewer mentions possibility of US involvement.

    The pundits are already certain who did it and not just Iran, but the terrorist designated revolutionary guard specifically – one pundit said it was obvious work of the revolutionary guard looking at the video CNN aired.

    Now to be fair, we apply MSM principles of fundamental justice. Iran will be given an opportunity to prove their innocence.

      It doesn’t need to make sense, it’s only purpose is to justify more shock and awe.

      It’s certainly ironic that WW II in the Pacific got a jump start with a US Fuel embargo on Japan, history seems to be repeating.

      • Lena Jones

        Dude, the price of attacking Iran REMAINS extremely and prohibitively high – especially for israel. Nothing has changed since the last month’s ‘mystery’ attack on two other ships in the Persian Gulf. Our whoring politicians want to show their shekel masters that they’re earning their keep, that’s all. Don’t fall for the politics of fear.

        • frankly

          Actually maybe my math is off, but I count 8 ships attacked. I thought I knew what the politics of fear are, until you turned it on me like this.

          They stage false flags to justify interventions. They scare the public by making it seem like Iran is an aggressor. Iran has no history of starting wars. I got buddies from Iran, they are wonderful smart people, good businessmen. Honest.

          By the way I thought your question was right on, but they just keep doing these outrageous things against all logic, so I gave up on logic.

          I think this Empire is going down and it will not be logical, but could get uglier. It is not their intentional actions that frighten me, it is the potential for mistakes. After 3 years served on a nuke sub I know a bit about mistakes and accidents.

          Generally being called Dude triggers some stereotyping behavior in me that I usually don’t respond to. You can squander the benefit of the doubt, my guess anyway, so goodbye.

          • Lena Jones

            No offense was intended, pal. (I hope ‘pal’ doesn’t trigger you). I didn’t turn anything on you either. My point is that they’re doing these failed ops cuz they’re losing to Iran and there’s nothing else for them to do. There is perfect logic behind their illogic: America is under jewish occupation. When you see America thru this lens, it all makes sense why America acts AGAINST its own interest.

            I hope we can still be friendly to each other.

          • frankly

            “Don’t fall for the politics of fear.” This implies that I have been bamboozled. If these false flags help build the consensus for a shock and awe display or worse, then the folks profiting from this mayhem will consider it anything but, a failed op.

            Good guess on the bud thing. I prefer respectful to friendly.

            You’ve caught me on my best behavior, either explain yourself clearly or quit pushing your luck.

          • Lena Jones

            I said “Don’t fall for the politics of fear” as a general statement, not specifically directed at you. And I said this because i’m trying to communicate that all these shenanigans in the Persian Gulf won’t lead to war. The reason for this is simple: the first missile that the US sends to Iran will immediately be answered by a MASSIVE precision missile attack on tel aviv. The Iranians have said this many, many times and they’re capable of doing it – israel and the Pentagon know this only too well. So unless world jewry is prepared to sacrifice tel aviv, there ain’t gonna be no war on Iran. Everything our side does is theater and smoke and mirrors to promote the politics of fear, especially for israeli domestic consumption. Allow me here to please repeat: the cost of attacking Iran, for whatever reason, is utterly prohibitive. Thank you.

          • frankly

            Like world jewry is in charge of Zio-Nazis.

            Not taking responsibility for what you write is a sure fire ticket to more crossed transaction.

            It does not matter to me what you were trying to write but how I read it. I am not a mind reader, just a reader. The bigger implication is that I am not smart enough to read what you write, so be it. It wont be hard to stop.

            Somehow all your reassurances that all is well and good have me feeling even more uncomfortable. While agreeing with your summation of the dangers of attacking Iran, the possibility that hostilities continue seems all too likely.

            I am not particularly afraid of death but it seems dying to fulfill some quota for the empire is sad. Furthermore my main concerns center more around wasted resources, like dead women and children.

          • Lena Jones

            Check your persecution complex at the door motherfucker lol!

          • frankly

            Wow I get it already, you showed the real you and what a sweet package. It’s like when a salesperson says, “to tell you the truth.”

            I get the same feeling when someone who does not know me uses over friendly expressions, it does not trigger me, it’s more of an alert. Insincere manipulator at work.

            One of my favorite expressions is hate is closer to love than indifference, you have proven out as a predictable bore. Goodnight.

          • Lena Jones

            STFU pretentious wanker! What utter nonsense you spew! I was polite and reached out and your response was to turn up the volume of your stupid, frou-frou hostility. Yeah it’s time for you to go to your fucking room now lol!

      I agree, freaking squatters goes without saying. any sane reasonable person knows that the squatters been braying for war against Iran for the last 50 yars. That just makes it immediately clear that it is the squatters that need to be eliminated and if brute force is what it takes then it is brute force, after all, the world hasn’t witnessed such an odious and reprehensible country for hundred of years and thus just one way to go – wipe them out.

      It can be the only nation who grinds a visitor in his embassy but goes away with it because the prince Bin Bun Ban said that he was not aware of it, and the free western press and wise free west government believe that.

      • Lena Jones

        The saudis can’t even manage a successful op against sandal-wearing Houthis, plus they ain’t got no sophisticated maritime capability in their own waters let alone in the Persian Gulf. I think you underestimate the stupidity of the jews, if you don’t mind me saying so. Some of the most stupid I’ve met were jews.

        • frankly

          Meanwhile their bankers have been robbing us blind for centuries, you could call that a lot of things. Stupid nowhere on the list.

          That such a tiny proportion of the world should so dominate the upper echelons is testament to much, but stupid?

          I am always amazed how often those who use insulting words are themselves best describing.

          • Lena Jones

            Oh shut it down with your jew cocksucking lol!

            Clearly YOU love being robbed blind by the synagogue of satan. They aint’ robbing me motherfucker – I live in a zio-free zone! They dominate your ass thru blackmail, coercion and terrorism and you define that as ‘intelligent’? LOL what a shekeled asshole you’ve exposed yourself as.

          • frankly

            So your claim to fame as a foul mouthed racist is going to lead us to a better, somehow different world? By lumping all Jews together you eliminate the Zio-Nazi’s worst enemy!

            You’ve taken the least affective tack to raise my ire, you’ve yet to even come close to my personal truth.

            From the spittle dripping from your chin, you’ve apparently gotten your bell rung. So you double down, who does that remind us of?

            Scratch the surface of the overly friendly deceiver and voila, exactly the tool of the Zionist. See the hateful anti-Semite who threatens our sacred land!

            So indeed hate is closer to love than indifference. You are proving that for me, thanks!

          • Lena Jones

            I didn’t bother reading your stupid holier-than-thou pretentious snowflake ignoramus twaddle past the first line. You were born boring and you will one day bore yourself to death. Stupid, stupid little brainwashed man.

          • frankly

            0 for ten. Here’s the deal. You hit the nail on the head and I will say ouch.

            The irony/real problem is that if we could narrow our focus and find some things in common, the good guys might be a bit more ahead. Some how spewing hate is a bit too same old, same old to bring about the unified effort it will take to bring down Empire. I will leave you to your vomiting, good day!

          • Lena Jones

            You are a pompous, passive-aggressive asshole. Hard to find “narrow focus” with somebody like that.

          • frankly

            Though I never actually have, it seems relatively easy to block someone on this site, you are the one going on about your disgust with me without actually touching a nerve. It seems to me important to be able to hold an honest debate. You however, seem to prefer yapping endlessly with snarling teeth. Like a small, frightened female dog. You cannot seem to defend your thesis in an honest way, instead vitriol.

            So what is your take on Stephen F. Cohen? I can’t understand why they let him live, except of course, for the fact that he is not a goy.

            Oh by the way, ouch obsessive. One short story, I built overhauled and troubleshot turbine engines for about 11 years. One of my more unqualified bosses once said I, “cared too much”. Spinning at over 20,000 rpm, over 5 miles high, while glowing red internally, less than 20 feet from passengers, I kinda figured it was better to be careful than suffer his fate of drinking too much and not caring at all. We went from some of the worst statistics to some of the best in less than two years and back again after I left. Having worked on it my new favorite expression is “good enough” said with a Finnish accent. I would guess your favorite expletive cliché is, who gives a fuck?

            Always did always will.

    According to Reuters the US claims to have video of Iranian sailors removing an unexploded limpet mine from Kokuka Courageous.
    Limpet mines cannot be attached to moving ships, it can only be done whilst the ship is stationary.

    The last port of call for the Kokuka Courageous was al Jubail Saudi Arabia.
    So obviously the mines were attached in SA.

    It will be interesting to know who made the mine, I’m sure Iran will tell us.

      Correction, it seems the mine story is just another lie by the Americans.
      The ships owner says the crew saw flying objects hit the ship.

    “Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece?

    “Naturally the common people don’t want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But afterall it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peace makers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

    How does this figure into how Trump attacked Syria while Xi was having meetings with Trump?

    • Ivan Freely

      False flags is like crying wolf. Eventually no one will believe you. If things turn hot, it won’t be because someone fell for it. It would be a case of someone taking it too far and now must be stopped for the greater good.

      • frankly

        Eh seems like we are well past taking it too far. Seems to me Russia is pretty darn aware of who did 9/11 yet they do not go all in.

        There is a very real damage the US is doing to itself and I believe the hope is that they will collapse before they start launching nukes. Having written that out, your point makes a lot of sense. Maybe they won’t collapse so easy.

        The spooky part is how they finance all this mayhem and win or lose the money flows to those all to willing to kill for it.

        • You can call me Al

          How would Russia be aware of 911 ?, that operation goes to the highest of the high politicians, intelligence and maybe military ops.

          • frankly

            Well for starters they are pretty good at physics. A lot of Israelis speak Russian.

  • RichardD

    The US military video purporting to show Iranian military removing an unexploded mine from one of the damaged tankers is being used to accuse Iran of the attack. If it is indeed Iranian military removing the mine. I wouldn’t jump to the conclusion that they’re guilty of the attack. Somebody has to disarm dangerous unexploded ordnance.

    • PZIVJ

      Do you have a link?
      Most likely it was limpet mines placed on ships with timers while they where still in port.
      But by whom, is Saudi Arabia and UAE in control of it’s waters near it’s ports ?

      • RichardD

        I posted the video above. Barring an inside job. You’d think that those ships would have cameras that would make manually placing mines like that difficult. Particularly above the surface. Unless they can be attached with some type of launcher from a distance.

        Some type of missile or torpedo close to or under the surface would be more difficult to trace.

  • RichardD

    The quality of the video is lousy and may have been degraded on purpose. It really doesn’t show much of anything.

    Article in TASS says there were 11 Russians one board one of the tankers. All safe and rescued, no injuries. Still bad form to attack a ship carrying your allies citizens. Lusitania remix anyone?

      So Iran did pick these 11 up, as opposed to Pence’s claim “The US Navy provided a contrary claim saying that its forces were involved in the rescue operation, not Iranian ones.”

    by now, most reasonable people around the globe knows that fatso is an idiot working under another idiot- dunny the dunce – and then there is bolton, the gravest threat to mankind ever. what I fail to understand is why some middle eastern billionaire or some afghani warlord rich from poppies haven’t put up a bounty on either of those duncies heads, 10 million bucks will raise the interest for the task significantly. and since fatso would be hard to miss, he’d be the prime target. what a larf and what a celebration for the word.
