Presidential Candidate @MikeGravel on John Bolton & escalating 🇺🇸-🇮🇷 tensions
Political cost for any🇮🇷official to talk to Trump (via Paul) is still very high.If they fail,the cost will be even higher.
That's why Tehran needs to maximize the prospects of success.That necessitates that Bolton & Pompeo are cut out since they will sabotage diplomacy
Trump went from "Let Iran talk to us when it's ready to behave" to "We need to talk to Iran Asap"
🇬🇧authorities said the tanker had‘veered off course’before capture.
The Stena Impero was headed to🇸🇦but left the international sea lanes & headed N towards the🇮🇷island of Qeshm"
War w/🇮🇷isn’t a joke
War will destroy the entire OIL infrastructure of the GulfCountries. Dubai Sharjah Abu Dhabi Jeddah Riyadh Doha Manama Tel Aviv Haifa will be vacated,🇺🇸bases will be attacked &🇺🇸naval fleet sunk
No Oil Tankers will move
“There’s no sanctions on the import of crude oil into Syria-only on aviation fuel. So this vessel was illegally boarded,cargo illegally impounded,senior officers illegally arrested, and they wonder why Iran is hot under collar about it?”
The U.K. seized Iran’s🇮🇷 tanker last week...
Iran seizing two U.K. tankers is retaliation
Yet the media and politicians say Iran is the aggressor? 🙃
In an attempt to bully diplomats into submission,🇺🇸places unprecedented controls on 🇮🇷Govt officials at UN, essentially limiting them & their families to a 6 block radius surrounding UN & 🇮🇷diplomatic buildings. Restricts travel to JFK airport & specific streets.
