I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS WE HAVE TO REMEMBER WE SHOULDN’T BE SURPRISED BY IRANIAN BEHAVIOR IN SOME WAY BECAUSE SINCE WE WITHDREW FROM THE DEAL THERE IS LOT LESS INCENTIVE FOR IRAN TO COMPLY AND TO BEHAVE. I THINK WHAT WE NEED TO REMEMBER, KEEP REALLY IN MIND HERE, IS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP TALKED ABOUT HOW MID-EAST WARS ARE FOR LOSERS. THEY’RE NOT GOOD FOR AMERICAN NATIONAL INTERESTS. WE NEED TO KEEP IN MIND THAT WE NEED TO FIND A WAY FORWARD HERE. I THINK THE PRESIDENT’S COMMITTED TO NEGOTIATIONS THAT COULD GET AS YOU DEAL. WE SHOULDN’T HAVE PRESET CONDITIONS BECAUSE THAT WILL PREVENT THE OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY GET THERE WITHOUT WAR, BECAUSE AGAIN, WAR ISN’T IN OUR NATIONAL INTERESTS HERE. JACKIE: DOES IT HELP PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH HIS MISSION THAT OTHER COUNTRIES ARE STANDING BEHIND HIM? RE WE STRONGER UNITED FOR EXAMPLE TAKING ON IRAN?>>SURE. BUT AGAIN THE UNITED STATES IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ACTOR IN THIS. IT IS UP TO PRESIDENT TRUMP TO SET THE TONE HERE. I THINK THIS WILL BE GOOD FOR THE UNITED STATES TO NEGOTIATE, FIND A PATH FORWARD. IT WILL ALSO BE GOOD FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP HERE. ELECTORALLY IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO GET INTO ANOTHER ENDLESS WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST. HE TALKED ABOUT THAT. HE TALKED ABOUT THAT DURING THE CAMPAIGN. HE HAS TALKED ABOUT THAT SINCE SOME OF POLLING BEARS THAT OUT. A POLL BY CONCERNED VETERANS OF AMERICA, A MAJORITY OF AMERICANS OPPOSE ATTACKS ON IRAN. THIS IS CASE WHERE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S INTERESTS HERE IS IN PEACE, BOTH POLITICALLY AND FOR OUR COUNTRY. JACKIE: NO, THE PRESIDENT IS DEFINITELY MADE THAT CLEAR BUT OF COURSE IRAN HASN’T REALLY STOPPED PUNCHING BACK AT THE NIGHT. PRESIDENT ROUHANI ACTUALLY SAYING THAT IT IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO ENRICH URANIUM AND THEY WILL MOVE THIS BALL FORWARD. SO WHAT HAPPENS IF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S HAND IS FORCED?>>AGAIN HOPEFULLY HE WILL CUT THROUGH THIS, HE WILL FIND A PATH DIFFERENT FROM WHAT HIS ADVISOR JOHN BOLTON WANTS. THE PRESIDENT WANTS PEACE. I’M NOT SURE ALL HIS ADVISORS DO. I THINK THE PRESIDENT NEEDS TO ASSERT HIMSELF TO BREAK THROUGH THIS. PEACE IS IN OUR INTERESTS HERE. WE COULD DETER IRAN. THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE DO THAT. WE SIGNAL THAT WE WILL STRIKE BACK IF WE’RE HIT. THE FACT GETTING TO PEACE IS THE ANSWER HERE. IT IS FOOD FOR AMERICA. IT IS A GOOD FOR THE GLOBAL ECONOMY. IT IS GOOD FOR OUR ALLIES. IT WILL BE GOOD FOR IRAN TO SIT DOWN AND CUT THROUGH THIS AS WELL. JACKIE: WHAT BROUGHT THIS ALL INTO THE FOREFRONT AGAIN IRAN’S ECONOMY IS STRUGGLING BECAUSE OF THE SANCTIONS. IS ONE NEGOTIATING TACTIC FROM THE PRESIDENT POTENTIALLY EASE UP A LITTLE BIT, GIVE THEM ROOM TO BREATHE?>>THERE HAS TO BE A OFF-RAMP HERE BECAUSE IF YOU PUT PRECONDITIONS ON NEGOTIATIONS, IF YOU HAVE A MAXIMUM PRESSURE CAMPAIGN WHERE THE IRANIANS ARE FORCED TO EITHER CAPITULATE COMPLETELY, THEN TRY TO FIND A WAY OUT OF THAT, I DON’T THINK THAT THE REGIME IS JUST GOING TO GIVE UP. I THINK IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO FIND THE OFF-RAMP, TO GET TO THE NEGOTIATING TABLE, AND MEET OUR SHARED INTERESTS IN SOMETHING MORE PEACEFUL THAN

  1. As someone from the UK, we are truly terrified and in intense anticipation of what this ‘retaliation’ might be

  2. I guess this is what obama hooked iran up with nucular power for .iran hates the USA and isriel not because of anything except the Koran tells them to

  3. Stupid USA and Britain
    They are the world scum

    There is no deal Iran can make all the uranium it wants. The USA withdrew and is causing people billions in damage for no reason but bad US policy

  4. Looks like Iran 🇮🇷 is the new Germany oh how the world loves to repeat history, America (warmongering nation no1) pulls out of the 2015 nuclear deal shattering peace with Iran, Iran threaten to stock pile enriched uranium, so the US impose sanctions on Iran, Iran attack oil tankers twice on separate occasions the second time there was evidence showing Iran removing limpit mines after explosion, Iran shoot down drone,
    trump plans a retaliatory strike but decides against it as cost of life would be overkill, so decide more sanctions and signs of on them, then the tea Sipping brits come in all guns blazing and seize an Iranian oil tanker in accordance with EU sanctions on Iran believing the oil is heading for Syria, Iran threaten Britain with a seizure, then trump attempts to mount and allied front at the straight of hormuz as protection for the tankers from Iran, Iran attempts to seize a British tanker and fail terribly theres a load of rhetoric and stupidity but that's how wars start sheer political idiocy

  5. Iran just tried to seize a British tanker and failed. Was this the retaliation they spoke of? Seems like they are floundering. Iran is poking a massive beehive. They attacked my countries drones, then turn and start quarreling with the uk. Sanctions hit them right in the balls. The Iran deal is in the garbage just like it should be. The lion will get up and break the hyenas back. It’s only a matter of time

  6. England and America are slaves of Zionism. For that sin alone should they be wiped off the face of Earth.

  7. Regardless of the wealth that will be plundered. U.S is still the aggressors in the situation as always. If you steal someone's lunch, you can expect one across the lip.

  8. The USA wants negotiations, but Iran is weakening and it will become more desperate with time. Iran, is a terrorist state. And eventually will be cut down at its knees if they do not stop their current activities.

  9. Why would Iran obey or even acknowledge sanctions imposed by the Wild West?? As far as they're concerned Syria is their ally and they have every right to ship oil to them. Stand up against the NWO bullies. Don't let the Rothschilds red coats dictate to you Iran.

  10. I was on the bus home from Birmingham England today and saw a Iranian man watching the Iranian leader talking about this on his phone with it on full volume. He was carrying a knife, it's a religious one they can carry legally. I'm not racist I'm just saying its not a good look, a lot of the old ladies on the bus looked really scared, I only realised what he was watching until I got home and saw the news.

  11. Lets just get this overwith…. Why are we postponing this….do we really need more time pretending life is going to continue to maintain the big party? Grow up children.

  12. The criminal Islamic regime is a major cause of malfunctions, misery and bloodshed in the region! As long as the fanatic mullahs and their propaganda machinary are on power the Iranian people and the region will never see the face of peace, progress and prosperity! Targeted and smart international sanctions will bring the regime to its knees and limit badly their petrodollar revenues!

  13. I'm not an Iranian fan but, do British really expect me to believe that the Syrians signed on to the European sanctions? On the other hand, call me geographically challenged but I don't remember the Strait of Gibralter being in between Iran and Syria.

  14. Decapitate Rouhani…getting on my nerves, that turbaned frocked git on the news every night, lately..get his co-ordinates and surprise him and the viewers…

  15. meanwhile, consider something…remember when Iran captured that armed ship inspection party from the Cornwall? the behavior and attitude of the female RN captive in particular? Just things to contemplate, when potential war is looming.That kind of thing might be what is manning the rifle next to you..though drawing equal pay, of course..

  16. When Somalian take over a ship they are called called pirates…..when UK does it they call it "capture a ship" such hypocrisy….

  17. Stop all Iran oil export and the Iranians would have no choice but to come out and fight. If Britain chooses to be an active participant of Trump's s maximum pressure policy on Iran, Britain should face the fact that it would be dragged into war with Iran eventually.

  18. They was told not to sail the tanker , they disregarded that as they needed to use this as the catalyst to their true intentions . Mor it up leave it and fine them . After expenses have been paid give the rest to saving the wildlife

  19. iran is a 90 million fighter nation don't think they are iraq or afghanistan those are persians the people who created and ruled the largest empires in the history

  20. Just a matter if time when some of these fast boats are destroyed, Bet they can't outrun my fire power. Peacemakers; Iran Is Not!

  21. Lets just send them a few thousand pounds of ham and bacon and a few loaves of bread and call it a day!! Nothing like a good ham sandwich with a little bacon!!

  22. I wish the war between Iran and USA start as soon as possible USA and its allies will be the one who suffers a lot economically the prices and tax will be shaking

  23. Um, the British seized the oil tanker in Spanish water's. Now Spain is complaining.
    The reports of Iranian boats running around is pure fabrication.

  24. This is all about Israel and the petrodollar. Can anyone tell me if Iran has a nuclear weapon really what are they going to do. Has a ran ever threaten any other country or had any other War other than with Iraq

  25. or we can have a war. all these new folk will join the army and fight for the uk. the wives will make bombs and tea.

  26. Starving another country that's piece you Americans your lost souls you're going to get it from the almighty God you're lost your total Godless country but this is where you're going to be fighting a living God

  28. A new threat from Iran eh? America and UK and Switzerland and all the White Supremacists nations are a threat to humanity every day that passes & if you think that your governments won’t turn on it’s own civilians, well then you need to WAKE UP to reality!

  29. Leftards saying america is doing this for Oil – America has more oil than all these contries combined after the fracking buisness went on its way.
    Iran Just like N.Korea are bullies and as such should be dealt with a real blow

  30. Please read about PNAC !No not peanut, but Project for a New American Century.This might explain the reasons behind all the middle East invasions by a Zionist controlled American military industrial force against sovereign states in that region.

  31. All of Iran’s crude oil exports, passes through terminals located in the Persian Gulf: the islands of Kharg, Lavan and Sirri.
    Take out those Facilities and Iran is washed up. No reason to Steal anymore Tankers. A few good Terrorists supplied with Demolition equipment could knock out the Facilities.
    Or a few well placed missiles could take out all three facilities. Or Oil Tankers packed with explosives, go into the Terminals.
    The EU reduces its Carbon Footprint. No more Stolen Tankers. Iran Quite for Two Days.

  32. Why does the UAE not carve a channel through the sand from coast to coast and charge for safe passage???

  33. Ha ha someone said , England never celebrate independent day , now it Will…..Iran capture British tanker…..

  34. This is what is known as provoking. They want war and stage psyops to make it happen. Now Iran DID retaliate, as well they should have, it'll be all over the news as Iran being hostile.

  35. Yeah Iran are a laughing stock there economy is in decline there poor and trying to take on the might of the British and Americans??? They wouldn’t stand a chance when Iran has a joke of a “ military “

  36. Don't know why Iran is crying over this aren't they the ones who started holding other country's ships. Uk send them diapers as your condolaces.
