In a surprising twist of geopolitical drama, unknown entities attacked two oil tankers in the Persian Gulf; one Japanese-owned, while another hails from Norway. Immediately, President Trump blasted the Iranian government for the oil tanker attacks, suggesting a response is coming. Of course, the timing of this incident is incredibly strange, and perhaps fortuitous for the globalist agenda.

Just a week ago, Trump has signaled confusing messages regarding Iran. On one hand, the President appeared to take a hardline stance, threatening a buildup of troops in the Middle East. He also raised the possibility of ordering a carrier group in the Persian Gulf. Part of the motivation here is that Trump renounced the nuclear deal that former President Barack Obama signed with Tehran.

Later, Trump seemed to recant his aggressive tone, suggesting that he was open to negotiations. He also has distanced himself from foreign-policy hawks that have historically pushed for Iranian regime change. And it’s also part of the “Trumpism” we’ve all witnessed: talk crazy and retract later.

Unfortunately, the oil tanker attacks happened at perhaps the worst possible moment. Feeling compelled to act tough to prevent the U.S. from losing face at a critical geopolitical juncture, Trump accused the Iranians for the incident.

But with his own credibility under the microscope, many openly wonder what the real story is.


Truth May Be First Casualty in the Oil Tanker Attacks

At time of writing, no one has a firm idea of what actually happened in the oil tanker attacks. The only evidence the U.S. government produced was a grainy military footage supposedly showing an Iranian navy ship planting mines on one of the tankers.

We might get half of the inquiry answered. The Japanese-owned tanker is heading toward the United Arab Emirates. The U.S. Navy has dispatched a bomb squad team over there to investigate. However, the Norwegian-owned tanker is drifting toward Iranian-controlled waters, setting the stage for an armed conflict.

After all, if Iran did indeed have something to do with the oil tanker attacks, this is an opportunity to clean up the evidence. Either way, the U.S. and its allies want the stricken ship in their hands to conduct a supposedly transparent investigation.

Nothing about this incident is transparent. During the initial broadcasting, media reports indicated that the tankers suffered a torpedo attack. But the Japanese government insisted that a flying object struck their ship.

If that’s the case, that would tie in more with drone activity, which the U.S. military leads. And let’s not forget that over the past decades, the military industrial complex has staged false-flag attacks.

Right now, it’s just speculation. Sadly, wars have been started on just such a catalyst.
