A Japanese man explains that Fat Mike is full of shit, and that this wasn’t caused by a mine.
There is no potential economic benefit to launching a war against Iran.
In fact, it will cost America trillions of dollars. And simply normalizing relations with the country would be a huge economic benefit to America.
So Fat Mike and his orange retard have to come up with an alternative reason to start this war.
They’ve settled on a classic line of reasoning: the enemy is simply driven by metaphysical evil.
It makes it really easy to explain why Iran would randomly start bombing tankers.
Tehran has nothing to gain from attacking the oil tankers, defense analyst and retired Lt. General Amjad Shoaib said.
“Why would Iran do it? They have no reason to go to war and they have no reason to escalate the situation,” he stressed.
Tehran has adamantly denied any involvement. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif described the incident as highly suspicious, adding that Washington’s evidence-free accusations are designed to “sabotage” Iran’s diplomatic efforts.
Experts noted the strange timing of the attack, which came as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was meeting with Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, marking the first time in 40 years that a Japanese leader had visited Tehran. Coincidentally, one of the oil tankers targeted in the attack was Japanese-owned.
The Japanese firm, Kokuka Sangyo Co, said on Friday that its tanker had been attacked by two “flying objects” but that there was no damage to the ship’s cargo of methanol.
Kourosh Shamlou, an attorney and Middle East specialist, told RT that it would be completely illogical for Iran to quite literally torpedo such a historic summit, especially since doing so would play into the hands of Washington’s anti-Iran hawks.
“I’m an attorney. You have to know for whom a crime is beneficial. We can see the geopolitical situation of Iran and the US in the Persian Gulf. We can say that the Iranians are not going to torpedo a ship that will lead to the Americans attacking them. It’s going to give the Americans an excuse to attack Iran. So it cannot be the Iranians.”
In fact, the incident has already had negative economic consequences for Iran, Hamed Mousavi, professor of political science at the University of Tehran and visiting professor at Carleton University, noted to RT.
“Iran’s currency lost five percent of its value today just because of talk of escalating tensions as well as perhaps the possibility of war. I think right now Iran wants to de-escalate the situation with the United States,” said Mousavi.
If you believe that Iran wants to start a war with America simply because they’re evil, then I don’t know what to tell you.
My hope is that most people won’t believe that. Because it’s the same thing they said about Saddam Hussein and every other Moslem, and it turned out to be total lies.
But people will tend to believe really stupid things, even after they’re proven to be false.
We shall see.
