Iran has seized a British-flagged oil tanker according to Fox News and multiple other outlets. Not much else is known at this time but the vessel was reported in international waters within the volatile Straight of Hormuz. This follows a pattern of belligerence beginning with their attacks on two tankers and downing of a US drone. It is currently a developing situation that doesn’t bode well for any side- one has to wonder at this point what promises the Russians and Chinese have made to Iran for keeping this up.

We may know sooner rather than later.
