WE HAVE THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION DIRECTOR NILE GARDINER. THIS KIND OF STUFF GOES BACK. 2007, HMS CORNWALL WAS SEIZED BY IRAN. THE SAILORS WERE KEPT FOR 15 DAYS. I REMEMBER BACK THEN, IT WAS EMBARASSMENT TO THE WEST, UK WENT TO BRUSSELS FOR HELP, DIDN’T GET ANY HELP. MORE RECENTLY THE UK SEEMS TO BE MUCH FIRMER IN ITS RESOLVE.

SO BRITAIN IS CERTAINLY ON HIGH ALERT WITH REGARD TO IRANIAN AGGRESSION AND IT IS VITAL THAT THE UNITED KINGDOM AND THE UNITED STATES STANDS UP TO ANY ATTEMPT BY IRAN TO INTIMIDATE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IN THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ. THIS IS LATEST SABRE RAT LINK OF THE IRANIAN REGIME BUT BRITAIN IS ADOPTING A TOUGHER STANCE THAN ANY OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRY. CHARLES: RIGHT.

  1. How come there was never any problems in Straight of Hormuz in last 100 years. The problems started as soon US war ships were ordered by Netanyahu to move close to lranian border .Coincidence?

  2. British stole 1 Iranian tanker and we seized 3 British tanker.thats what happens motherfuckers when you stole from someone.

  3. Deep State agents trying to start a war with Iran because they want to stop what is coming …coff coff ! FISA GATE, SPYGATE , Epstein and PIZZAGATE

  4. UK will snivel, and ask America to intervene. Looks like the UK has been neutered, but spayed would be more appropriate.

  5. It is stupid for any U.S. or UK ship to not be escorted through the Strait of Hormuz. Why bother to have U.S. and British ships in the region if they are not protecting freedom of the seas?

  6. actually 2 to 3 British oil tankers have been seized by Iran not just one. Atleast 2 have been confirmed. you will hear it soon.

  7. God do exist .Russians did not collapse in 1942.They crumbled 45 years later when there was a different world.Japan and Germany became economic powers .China was on the way to be a superpower. Anglo Americans cannot play God.

  8. these countries need to step up and protect their ships… america is not the police and not your puppet… do not leave us to fight your battles especially when you don't even pay for our protection…. enough is enough…. you need to take care of your business with Iran…

  9. Brits top soldiers are some of the best in the world. Iran will run away very fast back across those invisible line

  10. People take this so lightly with comments of bashing and joking. In reality if there is war mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers uncles, aunts and cousins could die is that what anybody really wants think hard.

  11. This is not our problem cause we are not the world police . USA needs to find a couch and sit on it.the Brits need to stay away from Iran .the military industrial complex needs to be exposed. The workers of the world need our money back and deserve to know what our government is up to. Secrets are never innocent

  12. Put a bunch of marines on these ships as they pass. Not one vessel will be touched unless Iran wants war

  13. Since British pirates seized an Iranian tanker, they shouldn't cry when Iran does the same thing back! If the British want their tanker, then release the Iranian one first. Well done, Iran! Good job! Your Asian brothers stand with you!

  14. finally iran retaliates.
    i hope they get some s400 and some brahmos missiles.
    that would make things interesting.

    on a separate issue that guy's so fat!
    if he gets any fatter he will explode…..he's like a black king pin….

  15. YOU GUYS DO REALIZE that, usa actually pays ransom for these occurences right? under the table.
    that's why theres no DISABILITY AND SS FUNDS. weve been paying ransom to all countries for all sorts of reasons. usa even secretly pays north korea to stfu. billions in CLANDESTINE MONIES. AND GOLD. its away to relax tarrifs without PUBLIC AWARENESS.
    Americas job is to pacify population awareness.

  16. Brits Sucking up to the Americans…already tried all the old imperial tricks …Royal wedding, Royal tour for president etc….US always makes its lackeys to do its dirty job…Canada arrest Huawei CFO, Brits mug Iranians…just like Pakistan says that US used them as condom to screw Russians and mate with the communist China

  17. If the world becomes peaceful place; the USA economy will crumble and collapse because they only benefit from WAR.

  18. The US and Europe should send a very large navy fleet that is so powerful it can just seize any Iranian military ships trying to attack tankers.

  19. trumps answer was very simple . he asked countries to protect their own ships haahahahahaha UK and Canada are just US states . even califronia is more independent from the american government then UK .

  20. Just a note to this dumbass outlet The tanker is Swedish NOT British It sails under a British flag but is Swedish Again Iran like the US engage in attention seeking unacceptable behavior targeting civilians and wasting everybody’s time BUT Scandinavia are very skilled in regards to dealing with Iran so this is a manageable incident even if it’s completely unacceptable Fox also missed that a second tanker is “ borrowed “ but that’s probably because they are too dumb to be able to pronounce the ships country of origin

  21. The british rats did it first by seizing Iranian ship.
    They think it's still 16th century and doing pirate.

  22. Iran is another of those countries that have never in its history attacked our country, we overthrew their elected government to install the shaw for oil interests.
    After Iranians started disappearing they held "mostly CIA" personnel hostage way back then, and I guess they got the right people because the disappearances of Iranians to black sites stoped.
    People need to think before they back a war of aggression upon them.
    I'm not saying they are saints but our motives in the region are not exactly white-hat good guy stuff either.

  23. We should have foreseen Iran pulling a stunt like this. We should have been securing all oil tankers. Time for Iran to get a few missiles I think 😉 🇮🇱🇺🇸🇬🇧

  24. The mullahs 'escalations' are depending on the type of weakness they witnessed from the previous administrations in the US, France and UK

    Even more sanctions! Protect US, French and UK interests in international waters?

  25. Tit For Tat Nothing More. Ooooh a crisis suddenly. What about two weeks ago? Was that a crisis? Get the fck out of here.

  26. Diplomacy first Haha let's see how far that gets you with Iran. Remember when Europe stuck up for Iran after trump tore up the nuclear deal. Iran has taken two British ships in the last 24 hours, good luck.

  27. There are no international waters in the strait of Hormuz. The tanker was either on the Oman or Iranian side of the narrow strait.

  28. Yes Iran those are your private waters and you should put up a tarrif for any fleet using that staight. If these fuckers so called elitr can put up toll gates you should force anyone using the red sea to pay you a tarriff for using your seas. Bill them millions. That is your ocean and they need to pay duty fees to your country.

  29. It’s by no way a British oil tanker like they’re trying to make out it. You would think it’s british people that’s actually been kidnapped by the way they go on. 🙄

  30. Britain will do what they are told by the U.S..v and no more and no less. Stop imagining that Britain has an independent foreign policy. What it has had since WW2 instead is called "special relationship" with the U.S.. So shut up and march.

  31. H.m.s Cornwall was not seized! H.m.s Cornwall is a frigate ! What was seized was a small rigid raider launched from the frigate. Somebody needs to do something about these “news” corporations! You can’t trust anything they say! We need to fight back boycott their sponsors!

  32. It’s actually a Swedish owned tanker with a mixed nationality crew none of which are British but there is Russians. Whoops.

  33. My Iranian brothers, hold the British ship until they release your tanker and also demand reparation for loss of income from the detention of your ship. Iran will defend from your land bases and that will give Iran the huge advantage against any British Aggressions. Be resolute and sink British ships.

  34. When they seize Iran ship no problem, when Iran react by seizing there .big issue. Wow hypocrisy at its best

  35. Shame on Iran if they just took the seizure of their own tanker laying down!
    They have balls, got to give them that!

  36. I still don't know why these ships are not armed, seems to me they would. They would at least have small arms and rifles to fend off an attack.

  37. Stupid British, they do everything Americans tell them. This is just a test for Iran, and they are up to the task, ready to defend they ground, they have the best air defence in the world

  38. UK is at the service of US and their slave. The seizure of the Iranian oil tanker in Gibraltar was piracy in broad daylight.
    USA is the one in control and UK is its LOYAL slave nation. and their foreign policy is decided by USA.
    The warmongers keep beating the drum harder after the last round failed to start a war.
    The british empire was the worse in history as most atrocities happened in relatively recent times.  Pure evil, horror, abuse and robbery on a mass scale.
    The brit govetnment would go bunkrupt, the UK would look like Somalia if it was forced to pay compensation to all those countries abused and robbed around the world.

  39. Lol , tell them anything and the sheep will follow, the war mongers of the world,. When the war starts we’ll just send our kids off to get killed , like we always do. Now how did this all start oh yeah trump back out of a deal we had with the Iranian, once again he fu…ed up a deal. Before you make judgement put your anger and hatred away, and try to think like grown ups, not high schoolers. Note it will be hard for some.

  40. Well the U.K. started it, what did they think would happened well this is what Israel wanted pushes us closer to WW3

  41. Reporter… learn to give a balanced reporting.
    Iran's aggression?
    Weird.. the journalist seems to be imitating a western gentleman.
    USA is not aggressive?
    UK sells I intentionally to provoke uran

  42. How DARE the Iranians stand up for themselves?! The should know they need to be bent over with cheeks spread far apart for anything the US/UK/Israel/SA wants

  43. Since the Queen boasts herself on being such a badass why doesnt she get off her lump of coal and go get it.Stop turning around to blame the USA about it..simply put ,do it yourself Queenie! And the UK needs to make sure she stands up for you..and stop treating you like toy soldiers and pawns.make her do it.

  44. This persian gulf ploy is played out propaganda to drive oil prices up..we are hip to it..its a G.h.w. Bush ploy..Go get it yourself Queen you lazy thud.
