I guess the Strait is in a way effectively closed, as Iran can do whatever it wants, whenever it wants. This is Western leadership in the 21st century. Feckless and terrified.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75260040


Maybe the brits shouldnt have seized an iranian tanker first uh
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77722201


That was under instruction of Gibraltar with support of royal marines commando in boarding the ship, it was local authorities that actually boarded and seized the ship in line with EU sanctions against Syria in line with aviation fuel unless I'm mistaken (I may be I'm not an fuel engineer) Crude oil is a component in Aviation fuel.
 Quoting: Stand Sure


Don't be so dense. It was already revealed later that US gave the instruction to UK to seize the tanker.

I know and it makes me feel sick that we've fallen to such depths that we're afraid to upset the Iranians....
 Quoting: FlightSimFanatic


Are you stupid? Or is your brain blown by drugs? If the UK/US get into this war, it will be tragic for the West. All the other countries around the Iran region have massive amounts of people and, if you stop to think, several can play the nuke game on that region too!

If the West strikes, the West is screwed over there and over here, in U.S. soil since Russia will decimate the U.S.

Idiots on this site who don't think straight. We'd be destroyed here, but maybe that's what Trump and all of them wants!

57 minutes away at the time. We only have a handful of ships in the region. Montrose is the only warship of note there. We have a tiny navy now. Six destroyers and thirteen frigates as our primary warships excluding the aircraft carrier. That's our entire combat fleet. Remember too the UK coastguard doesn't have ships either unlike the USA. They just have a handful of inflatables around the UK coast.

Revolutionary Guards: UK warship tried to prevent Iran from stopping tanker

A spokesman for Iran's Revolutionary Guards says they managed to bring Stena Impero to their shores despite "resistance and interference" from a British warship.

This goes against what Defence Secretary Penny Mordaunt told Sky News earlier today. She claimed that HMS Montrose was 60 minutes away from being able to help at the time of the incident.

Depends on R.O.E but it's highly unlikely that if a warship was there the Iranians would have succeeded
