    Yeah Mossad is a completely domestic organisation and never in their history operated outside of their borders.

    You are right about it not being black and white. Selfishly I'm concerned about oil prices my commute is expensive enough as it is...

    I am suspicious that so many people are so quick to point the finger at Iran


    especially as they were closer to the iranian coast..if you attempt to sink large tankers which countrys coastline and fishing are likely to be affected, why do something that will cost your own country in cleanup.

    Mossad false flag quite obviously, what is Iran getting out of sabotaging some random ships? Makes no sense. Israel giving the US more excuses to attack/sanction Iran benefits them massively.

    If you check someone's post history, you quickly work it out.

    I suspect Roar wasn't joking.

    I don't think it's outrageous to suggest Mossad can and would do something like this, and Israel benefits the most

    They do some crazy stuff

    Will hopefully contain a lot of it, anyway it's probs rather minor in comparison to the impact of any resulting "shock and awe".

    Could quite as easily be Saudi Arabia using some of their terrorist proxies to stir up **** between the US and Iran.
