    It amazes me that the us government tries to tell us that an Iranian diver placed the mines, AND that the mine was removed well above the water mine.
    Why are explosive ordinance experts all standing on board and not nervous when removing a live mine?

    Bloody lucky there was an American camera man with a camera he got at target being able to record a limpet mine being taken off of the tanker which did not detonate the yanks put 2+2 together and came up with Iran god bless America

    So the USS Bainbridge pictured the “likely mine” during the daylight on the 13th only to allow an Iranian ship to steal the evidence unchallenged on the night of the 13th? Please! If this is true I means the US Navy are a bunch of incompetent clowns....drunk and asleep at the wheel.

    They were R E M O V I N G the mines, we have been trying to blow up one of our own tankers and Iran has been REMOVING THEM, and they are citing the video of them REMOVING the mine, as evidence of them planting it.
    Holy FCUK
    why on earth would IRAN do this?
    When they have nothing to gain by going this. Provocing a guaranteed regime change by the US.
    DEAR WAPO, stop lying to us, we don't believe your bull#$*t anymore.

      The unexploded mine was certain to be discovered. The markings would have identified it as Iranian. They had no choice but to recover it and hope they were not noticed.

  • Kato Kane

    1:35 🤔 That looks like a hole in the side of the ship not a "unexploded mine". The owner of the Japanese tanker stated that it was a "flying object" that hit the tanker, so if it where the Iranians in the video then they were probably inspecting the hole for evidence of a drone or missile.........but one thing for sure is I don't trust US "intelligence or Mike Pompeo".

    • Thor A. Sic
      Thor A. Sic 5 bulan yang lalu

      Eyewitness accounts are important, but only one piece of the whole picture. For example, after the mine did not detonate, Iran could have attacked the boat with missiles. These two pieces of evidence are by no means mutually exclusive.

  • Lesa Boo

    I don't get it... So removing a mine on a tanker is consider an attack?

    • Thor A. Sic
      Thor A. Sic 5 bulan yang lalu

      Think it through. An unexploded mine could easily be traced back to Iran. They had to get it back.

    • William Smith
      William Smith 5 bulan yang lalu

      they knew it wouldnt explode...because they must have planted it in the first place. If the mine came from a different country why would they risk bringing it onto their boat?

    reverse video of boat attaching mine. at 1:34 we see the hole in ship and this mine still attached in broad daylight, so when did this "Iranian" patrol boat come and take the un-exploded mine off?!? More likely scenario is the US drone was sent there before hand and the patrol boat guys are blackwater

    Eye witnesses said "no mine, we saw flying objects".
    Funny isn't it, how every time the US wishes to deal with an uncooperative Government/country, that that Government/country does something that perfectly plays into US policy, justifying the sanctions (despite knowing they hurt the innocent more than anyone else) and the inevitable "military operation". Every time.
    It's beyond credible.
    And the media bears much responsibility in this matter, lazily repeating obvious lies. The blood of every victim stains your hands as much as it does those who gave the orders.

    • Sal Paradise
      Sal Paradise 5 bulan yang lalu

      @Thor A. Sic Herein lies the rub. It's one thing to say either "but there are discrepencies in the official account", or, "the word of those making the allegations is worthless, due to a great number of previous lies and a callousness towards the resultant casualties", but quite another to say "it was MOSSAD/CIA/MI6/Aliens/Giants, etc".
      It is both correct and pertinent to observe that the official account of 9/11 is absurd and contradicts the events. There are many discrepancies in the accounts of recent "terrorist outrages" and I'm not talking about differing eye-witness testimony, that's to be expected. I'm talking about photographic evidence that shows clear signs of composition and/or staging. This is not to say, "everything they say is a lie", because that's infantile. But it is true to say that the healthy response, based on all previous evidence, is to be unwilling to immediately believe what's claimed at first.
      "Deterring Democracy" by Noam Chomsky is a most enlightening read when it comes to the sort of stuff the US gets up to "away from the prying eyes of the media", much of it based on solid research from now declassified documents and minutes of meetings.

      @Sal Paradise So you believe the video is fake? Who do you believe attacked these two ships?

    • Sal Paradise
      Sal Paradise 5 bulan yang lalu

      @Thor A. Sic The video shows nothing conclusively.
      The US builds replicas of "enemy" units for training purposes.
      No mine is seen clearly enough for anyone to say "yes, that's definitely a mine".
      After the lies the US told to get the war in Iraq off the ground, everything they say about other nations MUST be taken with a pinch of salt, or at best, a higher than normal standard of proof is required.
      Problem number 1 - if you are shown a video with an accompanying explanation, you will be more likely to see what you're told is happening. Watch such videos without sound. Go through a series of tests "is what they are claiming possible?", "does the video clearly show what is claimed it shows, or is there another explanation?" Has the channel/nation making the claim a reputation for truth or telling lies?
      Who benefits from this story being true and who benefits from it being false?
      I still see nothing that convinces me the US is telling the truth.
      The US Government wouldn't know the truth if it carpet bombed them from 1000 feet.
