Oil Tankers Near Strait of Hormuz -- World's Most Important Oil-Shipping Chokepoint -- Damaged by "Sabotage Attacks;"
US Suspects Iran or Iran Proxies In Attacks

US intelligence has been warning of coming attacks by Iran:

The alleged attacks came one day after the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD) warned of "an increased possibility that Iran and/or its regional proxies could take action against U.S. and partner interests, including oil production infrastructure, after recently threatening to close the Strait of Hormuz."

Four days ago, a Vice Admiral stated that the US might send a carrier into the Strait, "if I need to:"

Vice Admiral Jim Malloy, commander of the U.S. Navy's Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet, did not say whether he would send the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group into the strategic waterway off Iran, through which passes a fifth of oil consumed globally.

The group, whose deployment to the Middle East was fast-tracked by President Donald Trump’s administration as a warning to Iran, transited through the Suez Canal into the Red Sea on Thursday and was now under Malloy's command.

"If I need to bring it inside the strait, I will do so," Malloy said in an interview by phone. "I'm not restricted in any way, I'm not challenged in any way, to operate her anywhere in the Middle East."

Iran dismissed the threat, saying it would hit the US "in the head:"

Meanwhile, the head of the Guards' aerospace division said the carrier was not a threat, but a target for the Iranians.

"An aircraft carrier that has at least 40 to 50 planes on it and 6,000 forces gathered within it was a serious threat for us in the past but now it is a target and the threats have switched to opportunities," said Hajizadeh.

"If (the Americans) make a move, we will hit them in the head," he added, according to Reuters.

...

The sweeping sanctions have dealt a severe blow to the Iranian economy.

Steinitz's comments follow a report on Israel’s Channel 13 on Friday that said Israel had warned the US that Iran was contemplating targeting Saudi oil production facilities.

The unsourced report said the Iranians were "considering various hostile acts" against American or American-allied targets. Tehran had looked at targeting American bases in the Gulf, but that had been deemed too drastic a step, it claimed.

The main target then became "Saudi oil production facilities," the report said. Such a strike would also send world oil prices soaring and enable Iran to get more income from its oil sales, the report added.

And now four oil tankers are attacked very near the Strait. (From Newsweek, the first source linked above.)

In official statements released Monday, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) were among the first to condemn "sabotage" operations committed a day earlier against up to four commercial ships--of which two are believed to be Saudi and one Norwegian--off the coast of the UAE's Fujairah in the Sea of Oman. The UAE also noted that there were no casualties nor oil spills and that its port had resumed operations as normal, while Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih revealed that one of the damaged vessels was on its way to bringing oil to the U.S., per a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.

Neither offered any information as to who could be responsible for the incident, which took place less than 100 miles from the Strait of Hormuz, through which about a third of the world's maritime oil traffic flows.

The Wall Street Journals reports that US intelligence says Iran, or its activated proxy forces, is likely behind the attacks.

An initial U.S. assessment indicated Iran likely was behind the attack on two Saudi Arabian oil tankers and two other vessels damaged over the weekend near the Strait of Hormuz, a U.S. official said, a finding that, if confirmed, would further inflame military tensions in the Persian Gulf.

I don't think they see things in terms of win or lose, only in terms of being strong and viewed as the leaders in the region.

I also think there's a clash here of cultures. There was a hilarious bit on SNL during Desert Storm where they had Bush give a speech in flowery middle eastern language about how jackals would eat their blood and how the military would descend like a mighty storm and on and on. Then they had the reaction from the Iraqis and they were impressed and liked the speech.

We don't have a culture like they do, where its all bravado and big speeches and talking up your strength and so on. We're more direct: back off or we'll put you down, plain and simple. Iran talks big because they always talk like that. But they mean like 1 out of 80 words.

79 WTF fictional history of Iraq Part II are people talking about? We're talking about preventing Iran from interfering with commerce, or eliminating their limited conventional military capability - both of which might be enough to collapse the regime, when the economic impact is included.


Somehow I missed the battles (in either war) in Iraq that were ever in doubt.


Or you're talking about the suppression of the "insurgency", which took how long once action was finally taken? (and still was a small operation) Also never in doubt.

86 THE CONSERVATIVE CASE FOR IRANIAN DOMINANCE OF THE MIDDLE EAST

I get enough of that from Vox Day and Unz.com.

Posted by: boulder t'hobo at May 13, 2019 08:07 PM (ykYG2)

87 As I wrote in the previous thread, I think that the most likely way Iran carried this attack out was to build some small electric submersibles, carrying maybe one or two men with diving gear and the equivalent of a limpet mine or two. The technology to do it has been around since WW2, and they would be very stealthy, almost impossible to detect without constant active sonar. Approaching and leaving undetected would be quite easy.

Posted by: Tom Servo at May 13, 2019 08:07 PM (V2Yro)

88 Iran talks big because they always talk like that. But they mean like 1 out of 80 words.

Honor the threat. Beat them like rented mules.

90 The mullahs are bat shit crazy. But they're not stupid. They know
Americans have zero appetite for another gulf war. And so they will fuck
with us as much as they want, knowing there will be little to any
consequence.


I don't think PDT wants to wage another pussy war where we don't go in there, kick some serious ass, then leave. If he goes in, I hope he does with both guns blazing and leaves a trail of dead mullahs to teach those goatfucks a lesson they won't soon forget.

Reasoning with a muzzie is an exercise in futility. They recognize and fear strength. Nothing more. They're typical bullies who, when their nose finally gets bloodied, will run home crying to Mommy. They'll never mess with you again if you hit them hard.

121 I do hope (and trust) that the US does not try to move a Carrier into the straits. A carrier's big vulnerability is to a ballistic missile - no realistic defense to that except avoiding it, which is possible at sea where precise targeting is difficult. but in the straits? Location is easy to pinpoint for any large ship, which makes it easy for the surface to surface ballistic missiles to be dropped on target with accuracy.

122 The Iranian electrical generation system is highly vulnerable. Not a lot of targets. And we have a lot of toys to drop Iran into a 11th Century mission kill. With an AF that needs funding.

I don't think there is a sane person in the world who wants war with Iran or anyone else but this was kind of inevitable when Trump put the sanctions back on and left the Iran deal.

Don't get me wrong, I completely support that decision but it the mullahs were always going to react like this. Particularly with Trump making his very first initiative as president to reinvigorate the GCC against Iran.

Our choices are 1) make a shit deal with Iran in which case they get nukes 2) confront them. So we are. I'm pretty sure this is not coming as a surprise to Trump and his team.

He said that we shouldnt' be in a trade war with China, instead, we should tell them that if they are going to make our companies that do business in china sell half their ownership to the Chinese, then we'll do the same here if they want to do business.

Completely missing from Stupid Joe's comments were the fact that the Chinese require ownership so they can transfer all IP and proprietary processes in a company to their military. So who's going to own 50% of a US based China company, dumbass? The US Govt? And do what with it, download the fake IT info it has?

As Trump tweeted today, the Chinese are waiting on a trade deal hoping a Democrat wins so they can go on with ripping us off.

To be fair, the Ottomans eventually cleaned the pace up pretty damn well, and in the days before their most recent and damaging revolution, it wasn't a very terrible place at all.

It still isn't, by and large, despite everything. The Iranian people are nowhere near as nuts as the violent psychotic murderers who stole power there.

Not being cleared for the CINCPACFLT war room, I do not know. The four SSNs you seek are the converted Ohio class SSGNs, with a max load-out of 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles. Each.

For each one of those is in port far away or a refit, subtract 154 from 616 missiles.

Yeah, we are in a kind of trade/information war with the Chinese. No shooting, etc., but all the same, it's gonna get a little rough.
Old Joe is typical of the Uniparty type that wants to manage the US into permanent decline and get money skimmed off the top from China to be "consultants" and "advisors". They just hope they don't live long enough to see the Chinese literally bend us over the car fender for a parking lot rogering.

Sorry; Jumpy computer. They called it something else but it was understood that's what she was supposed to be doing, I guess because "BJ associate" is not something you could put on your resume, but "personal assistant to Mr. Moonves" would be and she would have other duties she would be required to do that didn't involve Bjs

Most likely a long-in-advance scheduled underway. Routine in peacetime.

Because if the crew had to be recalled to get underway in a hurry, that would be big news.

Used to be, you could, with inside knowledge, predict what any ship was concerned with that week based on the training requirements to return to deployment.

We are changing some of that, but the oceans are large, the strategic needs many, and our fleet is too small.

One thing to keep in mind with the "boots on the ground" thing in Iraq. One of the big reasons that the Bushies did it is because Iran was sitting right there salivating at the prospect of gobbling up Iraq after Saddam was deposed. Their big mistake was in trying to do it on the cheap, with a shitty, restrictive ROE that meant our troops couldn't fight back worth a damn. The success of The Surge showed that we could have pacified the hell out of Iraq years before, if we'd actually put in enough force (with a proper ROE) to do the job.

This escalation with Iran is different. There really isn't any other hostile regional adversary that has the resources and will to try to swallow up Iran if we hammer the shit out of them and cause regime collapse. There's LESS of a reason to actually occupy the place, but plenty of reasons to turn it into a firing range and let the locals sort things out afterwards.

I'm skeptical how long this one's going to last. I turned on one of the local radio stations here in LA County this morning, and they were running an ad for the station that happened to reference Biden invading personal space. Or in other words, the "Creepy Joe" meme has gotten deep enough into the public consciousness that it's being referenced in otherwise non-political content even in blue Los Angeles County.

Immigrants, even those who are here illegally, are a "net benefit" to Indiana, a Ball State University study found.

"Even those [in the country illegally] tend to work at very high rates," said Michael Hicks, an author of the study and professor of economics at Ball State. "They tend to pay enormous share of taxes, but don't use tax benefits at very high rates. They're not available. So, it's very difficult to dodge taxes, but if you're not a legal immigrant, there aren't many services open to you. These tend to be positive benefits as well. They're paying into the pot, and not pulling very much out."

538 This escalation with Iran is different. There really isn't any other hostile regional adversary that has the resources and will to try to swallow up Iran if we hammer the shit out of them and cause regime collapse. There's LESS of a reason to actually occupy the place, but plenty of reasons to turn it into a firing range and let the locals sort things out afterwards.

I'm sure that in 30-45 days, US airpower (Navy and Air Force) could reduce Iran to pretty much a tactical zero with conventional weapons. To what end?

I would favor funneling money, satellite phones, weapons, etc to covert groups that oppose the regime, and then when the time appears to be right, get them to push the cart over.

If we interfer, US military power can screw the pooch with the average Iranian, who would resent our direct interference and rally to the present government.

546 Immigrants, even those who are here illegally, are a "net benefit" to Indiana, a Ball State University study found.

"Even those [in the country illegally] tend to work at very high rates," said Michael Hicks, an author of the study and professor of economics at Ball State. "They tend to pay enormous share of taxes, but don't use tax benefits at very high rates. They're not available. So, it's very difficult to dodge taxes, but if you're not a legal immigrant, there aren't many services open to you. These tend to be positive benefits as well. They're paying into the pot, and not pulling very much out."
