    Default Jeremy Corbyn challenges UK government's Iran accusations on oil tanker attacks

    WMD in Iraq were challenged by Corbyn in the face of US evidence, no one listened. When the US & UK start banging the war drums there's no stopping them.

    No one in Scotland will support an attack on Iran. No one. Scotland needs to get out of this madhouse.



    Jeremy Corbyn challenges UK government's Iran accusations on oil tanker attacks

    Jeremy Corbyn has questioned whether the government has "credible evidence" to show Iran is behind the attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.


    Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said responsibility for Thursday's attacks "almost certainly" lies with the Iranian regime.


    But the Labour leader tweeted that there was no evidence for this.


    Mr Hunt responded that Mr Corbyn's comments were "pathetic" and said he should back British intelligence.


    It is the second time in the past few weeks that tankers appear to have been attacked in the region and comes amid escalating tension between Iran and the United States.


    The US military released video footage which it said proved Iran was behind Thursday's attacks on the Norwegian and Japanese tankers - something Iran has categorically denied.


    Although Iran has denied being behind the explosions, experts believe it could be a response to US sanctions intended to stop other nations from purchasing Iranian oil.


    After the sanctions were tightened last month, Iran announced that "if it could not export its oil, no other country would be allowed to export theirs", Dr Aniseh Bassiri Tabrizi, from the Royal United Services Institute, said.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    MIC is a term made up by Soviet propaganda - back there 80% of GdP was MiC and they were keen to make West look aggressive too, where as in reality military spending in the West was much lower

    BBC Security correspondent is choosing his words very carefully and might have had his Twitter account hacked by Keira Knightly:

    Frank Gardner on Twitter: "If military action does eventually break out in the Gulf between Iran and US + its allies then western conclusions and decisions reached now, behind closed doors, will one day be scrutinised very carefully in public."

    Every reply to every tweet about this is from a Russian bot or troll or brainwashed 'useful idiot' choosing to believe fake news - this is getting Really bad. AtW - what do you intend to do about this?
