What is Zarif ranting about, Khomeini described the Iran-Iraq war as "a gift from God" and the ceasefire agreement as a "chalice of poison."
As we speak, where is Stena Impero?IRAN SEIZES BRITISH-FLAGGED STENA IMPERO OIL TANKER IN STRAIT OF HORMUZ
Earlier today, Gibraltar Supreme Court extended UK detention period of Iranian Grace 1 oil tanker for another 30 days. In response, almost immediately, Iran confirmed it seized the British-flagged Stena Impero oil tanker.
Iran warned that it would respond likewise to the British action if they did not release the ship, and they delivered on their promise.
I have a feeling Grace 1 tanker will be released soon...
Latest tracking showed it in Iranian waters already (after suddenly departing from international waters), then it stopped sending its location. That was almost 2 hours ago now, but already even by then it's too late to do anything. Now IRGC confirmed it was seized, it is probably already at Qeshm or Larak Island.As we speak, where is Stena Impero?
UK was prepared for this, things could get ugly.
The Sun is garbage and always has stupid sensationalist headlines. Every time Iran has military parade the Sun/Express say things like "WW3 IMMINENT - IRAN SHOWS DEADLY NEW WEAPONS TO DESTROY US"UK was prepared for this, things could get ugly.

Given that Grace 1 is nearly 5 times bigger, both countries just should keep the confiscated tankers, and move on with life.Info on the British-flagged oil tanker that was seized:
Grace 1 was built over 20 years ago, this is a brand new ship, probably quite close in cost.Given that Grace 1 is nearly 5 times bigger, both countries just should keep the confiscated tankers, and move on with life.

Grace1 was breaking a UN Embargo, and Stena Impero hijacked from Int'l waters. This is not going to go down well.Grace 1 was built over 20 years ago, this is a brand new ship, probably quite close in cost.
They will be traded and life will go on, but this was a logical response by Iran to UK detaining and still refusing to release Grace 1.
Iran seized Royal Marines in the past and nothing happened, this will not cause major problems in my opinion.
