A spook talking on a “condition of anonymity” said Iran is responsible.
Iran is a leading candidate for having carried out attacks on four tankers near the United Arab Emirates but the United States does not have conclusive proof Tehran was behind them, a U.S. official familiar with American intelligence said on Monday.
24 hours after the attack, the US is blaming Iran, never mind zero evidence and that Iran pulling off such a fruitless attack—no ships sunk, no oil spilled—at the precise time the US is looking for a pretext to bomb the country, destroy its infrastructure, kill tens if not hundreds of thousands, and install the terrorist Maryam Rajavi as ruler.
But it doesn’t matter. All it takes is a few “clickbait” headlines from the corporate war propaganda media and a false flag can be attributed to the mullahs. This is so transparent as to be a bad joke.
It wasn’t Iran that attached limpet magnetic bombs to ship hulls. It was likely US special operations or the Israelis.
Mossad has been feeding the US bogus intel on Iran for some time in the hope Trump and the Pentagon will kill the mullahs like Obama and Clinton killed Gaddafi, turn Iran into a failed state (this has been the plan for Israel’s neighbors for some time), and send a message to other nations rejecting the neoliberal game plan of total domination and economic servitude.
Following this textbook false flag, Trump promised to make Iran “suffer greatly” for daring to challenge the US.
President Trump: "We’ll see what happens with Iran. If they do anything it will be a very bad mistake, if they do anything. I’m hearing little stories about Iran. If they do anything, they will suffer greatly. We’ll see what happens..."
