    Rocket attack in Saudi Arabia, now 2 oil tankers possibly attacked. One of the ships captains claimed it was a torpedo attack. Did John Kerry plan this as we head towards election time?

    Looks like Fox News speculation.

    "
    Iranian state television’s website, citing the pro-Iran Lebanese satellite news channel Al-Mayadeen, said two oil tankers had been targeted in the Gulf of Oman. It offered no evidence to support the claim.

    Dryad Global, a maritime intelligence firm, preliminarily identified the vessel involved as the MT Front Altair, a Marshall Islands-flagged crude oil tanker. The vessel was “on fire and adrift,” Dryad added. It did not offer a cause for the incident.

    The United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations, a maritime safety group run by the British navy, warned of an unspecified incident in the Gulf of Oman and urged “extreme caution” but did not elaborate on the incident. It said it was investigating.

    "

    Personally, I'll wait on some facts before jumping to any conclusions.
    When it comes to Trump, it is increasingly difficult to distinguish between a political strategy and a nervous breakdown. His tweeted trash talk, his incoherent conspiracy theories and his shameless embrace of sleaziness are not the signs of a healthy mind.

    You donít need to be a Democrat to appreciate the impeachment of Trump. You just have to be a patriot.

    Almost every news source in the free world is reporting it as a possible attack, including your beloved CNN. Don't you think if it was most likely some sort of accident that it would have been reported as such.

    Key word "possible" as pointed out in the Times Of Israel link I posted.

    For all things mideast, I'll go with the Times over more sensational outlets.

    Not a torpedo attack, Iran used mines according to the Times Of Israel.

    Wonder how much of that is directly related to the money BHO airlifted to them?

    Maybe you should consider why they attacked instead of speculating if it was related to returning their money.

    Unlike yourself I do not sympathize with actions that speak for the act.

    The ships's operator disagrees with Pompeo. They said it was a rocket and Pompeo says it was a mine.

    One thing is for sure, anything Trump says is NOT believable.

    One of the obvious dangers of an administration that lies and misrepresents as a matter of course is that we have no reason to believe the leaders even in a real crisis.
