Weren't we just agreeing on the folly of military intervention earlier?

The UK is still part of the EU, right? If they want to keep the UK under their yoke then maybe they ought to do something about this. Do something productive for a change.

Let's see the Euro's oh-so-enlightened diplomacy in action. Let's see how well the Iranians respond to the EUs mad empathy skillz. Maybe take a million Iranian citizens off their govt's hands.

The EU is prefectly willing to let Britain hang out to dry.

Of course. I was just being facetious and obnoxious about it. With that said, the EU is incapable of doing anything about it even it was a German or French ship being attacked.

Yeah that’s worked out so well for us. Haven’t won a war since Korea and even that’s debatable.

Europe's problem. Energy independence is the answer. Drill Baby Drill.


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

Why the fvck are you screeching about Europe in a thread about Iran?

UK seized Iranian tanker not long ago in Gibraltar.

This appears to be an act of retaliation.

All because Iran nuclear deal wasn't working!

Much better now. toilet

Duh,

Because the UK is still part of Germany's Fourth Reich, at least for the time being.

Why did they take the British tanker?

Is that like when you friend is arguing with some jerk and the jerk punches you instead?


incompetence is preferable to malice.
