    So Iran has seized a British tanker.

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/954426...rd-royal-navy/

    I'm anxious to see if the Brits still have any fight left in them.

    At this point, the Brits have lost all common sense (with all the liberal BS laws, and things they've done to their subjects, who didn't protest any of it), so I really don't care that Iran seized their tanker.

    Tough stuff....

    I don't think they have any "common sense" or fight left. That left when they voted out Margaret Thatcher.

    I would call that an act of war, and since the Brits are our allies, the US should back them up.

    The British public is well on the way towards total pussification, but they DO fight alongside OUR military and I think we in turn should help them out.

    Who the HELL do those ragheads think they are?????? They should be begging the Brits not to turn their shithole country into radioactive glass.

    You can't compare the British military to the average metrosexual British "man".

    The Brits will kick Iran's ass and I wouldn't be surprised to see Iran do something stupid with nuclear materials (nukes if they have them, or radioactive "dirty" bombs if they don't).

    Iran needs to be slapped down ASAP.

    Iran has been doing a bunch of things lately. Like they are trying to push some buttons to get the US to react.

    I have wondered if they are being badcked by Russia or China to get them in to a war with the US.

    Russia and China have new technologies that they are itching to use against another First-World country.

    I kinda doubt it (that Russia or China want to test weapons tech on the US).

    Not even Russians or Chinese want a global nuclear war. Their governments may have wacky idea, but nobody wants to die.

    And Drudge is reporting that the British navy may be too small to do anything about it.

    This has nothing to do with Islam vs the West and everything to do with maintaining the power of the criminals that run our banks and government. The 9/11 hijackers were all Saudi, we're close allies with the Saudies (the source of wahhabism internationally), and we force the world to purchase Saudi oil because of their deal only sell in federal reserve notes in exchange for military support. "The West" (our chosenite banking overlords and their gentile partners in government and business) wants everyone in debt to the central banks and dependent on Saudi oil. They care so little about us that they're happy to replace us with immigrants in our homelands while they send our men to fight their wars and put us all into trans-generational debt slavery.

    The world is governed by a triumvirate of the three Abrahamic religions. The idea that we're at war with Islam is a joke. More accurately, our zionist allies use us to get revenge on their racial enemies (the Arabs and Persians) through war and the spread of wahhabism but they don't give a rat's ass about Christianity vs Islam, or the future of white people in their own homelands. We're nothing but shabbos goys to these people.

    England and Israel will fight their wars to the last drop of American blood.

    So, how does England get a war with Iran started and involve the US in said war, and make it look like Iran started it?
    Easy, impound one of their tankers, knowing that Iran will then take a Brit tanker.
    Escalate from there.

    Instead of doing it themselves, they want to make the US do it for them, just like war with Iran.

    You should have used purple... or at least ended the post with "j/k".

    Victory means imposing one’s will on the enemy; history teaches that conflicts end when one side gives up. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict will end only when Palestinians realize they cannot achieve their goal of eliminating the Jewish state of Israel.
    I think they underestimate the anger and rage that occurs when land is illegally occupied by arrogant invaders. There will never be "middle east peace" until the travesty of 1948 is rectified.

    That should have been done 40 years ago BEFORE Iran acquired so much tech. THEN it could have been done conventionally, or with one or two well placed low yield strikes.

    There was a report I was reading a couple of days ago that the ChiComs have developed some new stealth fighter jets. That may be a distinct possibility.

    They may have fought their own wars BUT they have had a lot of equipment and support from the U.S. government.
