From the article:

"The British Heritage tanker was sailing out of the Persian Gulf and was crossing into the Strait of Hormuz area when it was approached by the Iranian boats. The Iranians ordered the tanker to change course and stop in nearby Iranian territorial waters, according to the officials. A US aircraft was overhead and recorded video of the incident.

The UK's Royal Navy frigate HMS Montrose had been escorting the tanker from the rear. It trained its deck guns on the Iranians and gave them a verbal warning to back away, which they did. Montrose is equipped on the deck with 30 mm guns specifically designed to drive off small boats."

Did the Iranians not see a warship tailing the tanker? :unsure:

Your thoughts?

Now they're denying it happened. You make up your own mind by watching the video:

Seems to me that this was a declaration by Iran or do you want the shipping in the strait to be harassed and taken over?

Iran is asking for an ass beating. Whoever is in charge over in Iran is wanting a war and they're working really hard to get one. If they wish hard enough, they'll get a war that they can't win.

Absolutely, now maybe other countries will come on board to keep Iran in check
