I usually don't post off of RT, but this is about the most unbiased and accurate reporting I could find - ironically. Washington has captured four Iranian cargo vessels on the high seas, taking hold of several fuel tankers on their way to Venezuela without the use of military force, which are on their way to a port in Houston, Texas (probably there now). US federal prosecutors requested and obtained a forfeiture warrant early last month to confiscate the four tankers, arguing that proceeds from the fuel sales to Caracas skirted American sanctions and would support “nefarious activities” by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the elite military unit alleged to arrange the shipments, which Washington has labeled a terrorist organization. Despite previous threats from Washington to halt the flow of fuel into Venezuela, Iran has remained adamant about the shipments, repeatedly stating they would continue in defiance of US sanctions, which apply to both Caracas and Tehran. Some day the grand poo-bah of Iran will learn. https://www.rt.com/news/497980-us-seize-iranian-ships-wsj/ ................................................................ #politics #iran #war #terrorism #news
