Tanker Missing. Another Neocon False Flag?

A tiny tanker flagged in Panama stopped sending tracking data two days ago near the Strait of Hormuz. As soon as the story surfaced, what happened? The corporate propaganda jumped all over it, reflexively pointing at Iran.

It’s all part of the script. The Brits under orders from the US neocons had Gibraltar (which is a British Overseas Territory) seize an Iranian tanker filled with crude, claiming it was destined for Syria, which is a target of economic warfare by the United Nations, and Iran, rightfully angry about this act of piracy, threatened to respond, and the next thing you know a small tanker disappears in the middle of the night and “US officials” (neocons), of course “anonymous,” say Iran is to blame. No evidence required, as usual.

The corporate propaganda media initially reported the ship was owned by the United Arab Emirates, but UAE officials turned around and said this isn’t the case, and so the mystery and potential false flag continues. The US is now “investigating,” that is to say building as case without evidence that Iran grabbed the ship in response to the documented fact the Brits hijacked a fully loaded Iranian tanker and arrested its crew.

Naturally, the Trump MAGA—in this case “Make Israel Great Again”—crowd jumped on this unverified story to tweet storm against Iran and the Democrats.

This is a developing story, so I am sure there will be a lot more spin to come.

  1. Jun 13, 2019 Persian Gulf Tanker Attack: Iran Guilty? False Flag? Cui Bono?

    Just as the prime minister of Japan was in an historic visit to Iran (the first since the 1979 revolution), a Japanese-owned tanker (and one other) was attacked in the Persian Gulf. US neocons are pointing the finger at Iran. Does it make sense to attack Japan in the midst of productive talks? Will the propaganda machine ramp up war talk?

  2. Maybe they switched off the AIS on the tanker in the same way as the Air Force switched off the transponder on the drone that they invaded Iran’s territorial space with.
    Somebody should explain to Pamela Geller that committing acts of war, such as our government has been doing to Iran since 1953, is about as savage as it gets.
    Getting the Brits to follow American orders during the American revolution would have saved time, money, effort, and lives.
