|2019, Aug. 19 -- The supertanker
is now on the way on the eastern Mediterranean. The port of Kalamata in
Greece was entered in the automatic identification system. However, the
port is not suitable for receiving a supertanker and also not informed.
Presumably, the goal is to bring the tanker as soon as possible in safe
territorial waters to wait there for a military escort. But attention,
Haifa is not far away.
2019, Aug. 18 -- The Iranian
supertanker "Grace 1" can finally leave Gibraltar. The British government
has rejected the US request to seize the ship. The authorities in Gibraltar
referred to EU law. The EU sanctions regime against Iran is fundamentally
different from that of the United States, Gibraltar's government said.
A new crew should now take over the tanker, which now operates under the
Iranian flag and has been renamed "Adrian Darya 1". Hossein Khanzadi,
commander of the Iranian Navy, has offered to pick up the tanker with
a military escort (!). This
is a wise and sovereign decision of British Gibraltar. But now it could
be really dangerous.
2019, July 21 -- The Islamic
Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has released a video
special force boarded
the British tanker "Stena Impero" from a helicopter.
2019, July 20 -- The Islamic
Revolution Guards Corps
(IRGC) released a video
that in the time on July 18 show inspected warships
(including USS "Boxer") and tankers in the Persian Gulf, hours before
the destruction of the mysterious drone. Contrary to the statement that
it was a drone (UAV) in the video, a revealing sequence in the video proves
it was an
equipped with a moving camera. Drones have wheels
and not skids.
2019, July 19 -- The leadership
in Tehran has announced in early July consequences for the hijacked Iranian
oil tanker "Grace 1" by the British Navy off Gibraltar.
Iran has now hijacked
a British tanker in the Gulf of Hormuz. The British-flagged
"Stena Impero" was escorted to Iranian coast.
That is the
for Trump's "poodle". Britain should not interfere
in Trump's personal "war" against Iran.
2019, July 18 -- According to President Trump,
the naval vessel "USS Boxer" destroyed an "Iranian" drone over the Strait
of Hormuz because it had come too close to the ship. Tehran counters that
Iran is not missing a drone.
provocateur (not Iran) is active again.
This time he intentionally sacrificed a drone.
A valid suspicion:
"German" submarines back in use for sneaky false-flag attacks ?
the Gulf of Oman off the coasts of the United Arab Emirates and Iran, two
tankers were attacked and partly caught fire
This was the second attack by a previously unknown aggressor on tankers in
the Gulf of Oman after the
first attack in May
Hamburg shipping group Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement said on Thursday in
Singapore that their tanker "Kokuka Courageous" had been damaged in a suspected
attack. A representative of the Japanese owner of the ship told the US news
channel "CNN" that it had been attacked twice with a "kind of grenade". The
first "shot" hit the tanker above the water surface, then fire broke out.
The other tanker is the oil tanker "Front Altair" of the Norwegian company
Frontline. This was confirmed by the Norwegian Maritime Authority. The ship
had been attacked in the early morning at 6:03 clock, the authority said on
Thursday. It had been reported by three explosions on board, the ship is on
"It is the
US government's assessment that the Islamic Republic of Iran is responsible
for the attacks that occurred in the Gulf of Oman today," US Secretary of
State Mike Pompeo said Thursday in Washington at a brief press conference.
".... and Trump: "They did do it".
That is what the attacker (not Iran) wanted to
hear ! Who has the most interest in discrediting Iran ? ... and has
submarines ? We can guess it. Great Britain and Saudi Arabia have joined
the unproven accusation by the U.S.A. The U.A.E. has doubts about the
presented "evidences" . Israel is silent as always.
The Japanese government has been requesting
the United States for concrete evidence to back its assertion that Iran is
to blame for the attacks on two tankers near the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday,
government sources said Sunday.
The request came after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a statement
hours after the attacks blaming Iran but without offering proof. The Department
of Defense later released a video allegedly showing an Iranian patrol boat
removing an unexploded mine attached to the side of the Japanese-operated
tanker Kokuka Courageous.
But Japanese government officials remain unconvinced, the sources said. "The
U.S. explanation has not helped us go beyond speculation," said one senior
Pompeo said in a press conference Thursday that the United States' assessment
was based on their "intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise
needed to execute the operation.
A source close to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, "These are not definite
proof that it's Iran." "Even if it's the United States that makes the assertion,
we cannot simply say we believe it," he said.
If having expertise sophisticated enough to conduct the attack could be a
reason to conclude that the attacker was Iran, "That would apply to the United
States and Israel as well," said a source at the Foreign Ministry.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called the incidents
in the Strait of Hormuz "suspicious" in a tweet, and "suspicious" is not enough
to describe what happened," he wrote !!
The results of the investigations will be announced soon,
quoted the news agency IRNA on Thursday the speaker on. Iran is investigating
the incidents. Several teams of experts had flown with helicopters over the
sea area in which there had been explosions, said a spokesman for the rescue
department of the Iranian fleet.
A courageous comment
Hans Stehling, uk
"It is known that the Israeli
military is an integral part of that US plan to first cripple the Iranian
economy with global oil sanctions and then to initiate an air and sea
attack against the Iranian state and its people.
But first, a credible excuse was required. That excuse was orchestrated
jointly by a belligerent Trump and Netanyahu, this week, when two
oil tankers were structurally damaged by limpet mines, off the coast of
Oman – subsequent to a similar action the previous weeks – and the sabotage
immediately blamed by US Secretary of State, Michael Pompeo, without any
evidence whatsoever, upon Iran. However, the state actor concerned was,
almost certainly, not Iran but very probably the Israeli navy with
its state-of-the-art, German-built, nuclear-armed submarines, covertly
patrolling the deep waters of the Gulf.
The deliberate sabotaging of four shipping tankers in the Gulf and the
too obvious accusations against Iran, indicate that US-Israeli plans for
a combined attack against the Iranian state are now fairly imminent. And
that fact should make the world take notice because such unwarranted and
unprovoked aggression against a sovereign state could very easily escalate
into a global conflict."
Crew on Japanese tanker saw "flying object"
The crew of the hit Japanese tanker saw a "flying object" before the second
explosion on board. "The crew members say they were hit by a flying object,"
said Kokuka Sangyo, head of the shipping company, Yutaka Katada, on Friday.
"They say they saw it with their own eyes," he added.
According to its chief, the shipping company received a report stating that
"something come flying to the ship. There was an explosion, and it pierced
the ship." Which kind and how large the flying object could have been, does
not emerge from the reporting.
The loaded with methanol "Kokuka Courageous" was met in Katada on Thursday
in two attacks. After the first suspected attack, the crew had made "evasive
maneuvers", but the ship had been hit again three hours later.
Where is the drain with damage 1 ? (here is nothing)
Damage 1 location ?
What type of explosive device was used is still unclear.
Such surprising and precise shots into the side of a freighter can only come
from a submarine. In any case the damages at the tanker "Kokuka Courageous"
are clearly bullet holes that should set fire leaking naphtha. The holes have
been not caused by limpet mines. The tanker was attacked from the distance
twice at intervals of 3 hours. Crew members have seen a "flying object" (Triton
missile ?). Probably the second attack took place because the tanker did
not burn after the first attack.
Both ships were attacked in more or less the same time, in morning twilight,
in something which looks like coordinated operation. The distance of the tankers
from each other was at least 40 km, which can not be handled by a single attacker.
A second attack on the "Kokuka Courageous" after a three-hour break can only
come from an invisible submarine. Who can still doubt now ?
Fiber-optic guided-weapon system
EADS Polyphem-MS "Triton"
The authoritative Combat Fleets of the World
claims the Israeli Dolphin submarines have the "Triton" fiber-optic guided-weapon
system. "Triton" allows submarines the ability to attack helicopters,
surface ships and coastal targets. "Triton" is a 15 km-range submarine-launched
variant of the EADS "Polyphem" and will launched from a torpedo tube.
Note: The production of Polyphem has been discontinued and will be replaced
by the IDAS system.
Here is the suspect: Exported German submarines of the Dolphin

The actual damage 1 is more below (nearby a drain) and not visible in
What should the U.S. video prove
It is meant to show that an unexploded limpet mine has been removed. What
for a malicious nonsense.
Here the damages only examined by Iranians.

Should this be

It looks like a subsequently placed object for this photo.
The ineffective attempt to show an Iranian limpet mine
Here a non-functioning
"mine" was destroyed with a hammer
damage 1 ?
That is important to know about
Why is the hole on the
hull of the attached tankers so enormous?
A limpet mine can not have caused it. Mounted above the waterline, limpet
mines can cause only minor damage. The pressure of a detonation is largely
directed outward, away from the ship's hull.
Therefore, limpet mines are attached below the waterline.
When placed against a ship's hull underwater, the limpet has dense water behind
it, and most likely has an air void on the other side of the hull plating.
The ocean tamps and helps reflect the explosive blast, which like all types
of energy seeks the path of least resistance. Thus, more of the explosive
force is directed into the ship itself.
