Grace 1: Onboard the seized supertanker – BBC News



The BBC has obtained pictures from inside the Grace 1, which was seized in July.

The ship was raided by Royal Marines off the coast of the British overseas territory, triggering a standoff with Tehran.

Judges in Gibraltar are expected to decide within days whether to extend the detention of the supertanker. and on Tuesday Iran suggested a resolution may come soon.

Middle East Correspondent Tom Bateman reports.

US neocon thuggery and piracy against yet another sanctioned nation with huge oil reserves…. and then trying to claim moral highground and yet another world new law to suit their own greedy purpose…. Democracy has been perverted and the American Empire has become more fascist and used to being able to dictate to any country it chooses 😨

Once again, the U.S. Navy ''command???'' has demonstrate their ignorance. Instead of asking an another country to do it's work, they should have arranged the Grace-1 to undergo a non fatal engineering failure on the high seas. A large section of chains placed in the path of the Vessel's pitch "propellers". Aye! Aye! mates.

I hope Trump will give a miss from 1st November, to deal economically with wusses. Finally and it is time for the USA to leave NATO. I am not fighting for them..no way.

As soon as the ship leaves port it should be seized by US Marines and sent to Israel and off loaded there … the oil donated to the state. Further, Trump should authorize the protection of all neutral shipping in the Straits of Hormuz. Any ship calling for help will be aided by the US Navy. Iranian naval boats should be fired on and sunk. Trump is being way too nice to the terrorist state of Iran. Iran's rubber ducky navy is a joke, should not be taken seriously and would good target practice for American fighter pilots.

… look at that…

… country telling another government to intervene in it's judiciary deliberation…

…that has happened somewhere… oh!,… got it… in third world countries… for which they are criticised as being corrupt.
… now come the hypocrisy… Do as I say, not as you preach or practice…

… of course, the subordinate obliges the masters' desire.
weah! old England has become the erandboy… doing someones dirty job.

… this is what happens when sovereign nations allow themselves to be herded, without realising the motive, under the so-called NATO

Britain the loyal dog of Washington, will they dare to detain a Chinese or a Russian ship? The US and U. K should stop bullying smaller nations, and let there be peace in the middle east.
