Suspected toropedo attacks on tankers in the Persian Gulf...but there's much to ponder here:
US blames Iran for suspected ‘tanker attacks’
Joseph Has a few speculations on who may be behind the incidents, and these articles may prove helpful in that respect:

Joseph, you have to remember the USA cannot be seen to conduct openly aggressive actions against another foreign power that they want to change.
That’s why they have ”black ops” they either use a special team of navy seals or they pay a ”friendly” foreign country to do it for them. The USA is trying to raise the pressure on Iran.
And according to RT coverage, both ships were tied to or related to Iran own business associates. I seriously doubt that they would attack their own interests.

Joseph is right, as far as he goes. I would recommend doing a search on (1st) PNAC & Pearl Harbor. After you digest that, search on (2nd) “Oded Yinon Plan.” Once your mind comes back on-line, you will have the basics on what is now transpiring…
There are a few layers to these ‘events’. On the most surface, the US is coming into the 2020 election ramp-up. Harken back to George H.W. Bush. He had just won an overwhelming victory over the “bad” Iraqis. But when the economy tanked, he was voted out with the tag-line “It’s the Economy, stupid!” (which James Carville coined as a campaign strategist of Bill Clinton). So, Trump & Co. know that they will be judged on the economy at the time of the election.
First, this puts the current administration at the mercy of the (private international banking cartel) Fed hiking/slashing interest rates or introducing/withholding ‘quantitative easing’ as they wish. Bad. Second, the US economy (and world economy) can be tanked by any number of ‘disaster capitalism’ scenarios – including closing the Strait of Hormuz and resultant doubling/tripling of oil, natural gas, and gasoline prices. Also bad. And, Trump is ensnared within this ‘reality’ (if he is not already a willing tool).
On the next level, I would view this as a ‘sparring match’ between the globalists and the nationalists. Careful signals are being sent, without causing much lasting harm. Note that not one tanker was sunk.
At the longest-view level, this could all be Problem -> Reaction -> Solution . Anyone (human or Earth-based alien) with a ‘planning cycle’ of hundreds to thousands of years can rig both/all sides. Here, we have to suss-out motives . If ordinary riches or power is not the draw, what is? And also pertinent: Why would you try to ruin a species?
(Speaking of longest-view, one of Miles Mathis’ guest writers has an intriguing view on Iran’s ‘leadership’. I am only part-way through so far, so I have not formed conclusions on veracity…)
Tit for tat blame game remains a stall tactic for direct action for now. One will not expect hints or revelations of sources and methods of intelligence gathering for those incidents then or now, although one’s eyes and ears will be observing attentively for leaks and clues. It leaves far too much guess work for major national players to act irresponsibly. However, an ancient ploy would not be beneath those folks as descendants of ancient Parthia. A Parthian shot.
Parthian-shot, is what it suggests to me and, in one’s humble opinion, is certainly not a tactic removed from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who, as some folks already know, have been declared a terrorist corp. One would encourage those unfamiliar and with an interest in understanding something of battlefield tactics of ancient Parthians and modern Iranians to set aside some time to learn of this tactic. It was seen during the Iraq and earlier Iran Wars. It’s not just a thing Darius I might have used.
Anyway, a Parthian shot is a shot fired while in real or feigned retreat to mislead or create confusion while evading pursuers. In one sense the Iranian regime is in actual economic retreat and hurting, but still have a formidable battle army, the IRGC and its sympathizer or rogue elements that can act or carry out attacks by proxy.
One can actually see ancient art that depicts such a maneuver with Parthian rider and horse. The horse travels opposite, away from pursuer, while the rider faces back at the pursuer with drawn bow and arrow to inflict a hopeful kill shot at his pursuer. That tactic is thought to have had many successes upon an unsuspecting pursuer since the Parthian riders and horses practiced the maneuver prior to battles and while learning the art of horse-bow-arrow battlefield tactics. It is quickly done which makes it unexpectedly effective. Of course, today those same ancient battlefield tactics have their modern revisions and adaptations with respective modern weaponry.
Now, that Norwegian tanker in the region may have been incidental or mistaken for another since Norwegians otherwise have some fossil fuel independence with their own offshore based platforms for oil and gas. That tanker involvement alone hints toward rouge players to create chaos within the blame game and local battlefield. Reckless as it might seem to major powers and with heavy weaponry in the region it still is a tactical maneuver by player unknown at present, but seemingly trained in battle tactics.
At any rate, it’s to early from this side of a distant monitor of the region to give credit where credit is due.
Here is an excellent summary of this event and its reporting and rumours:
When it was first reported, it was by Al Mayadeen on 12th May in Lebanon, it was presented as a much larger attack on the port of Fujairah. Following this, it was reported in the local UAE press (Fujairah is one of the emirates) first as a sabotage on 4 tankers and then later that day as an attack on 2 tankers (following press releases in Saudi Arabia that admitted to 2 ships being sabotaged).
In the same timeframe, oil pipelines in Saudi Arabia were attacked (possibly by Yemeni forces) and some commentators (Elijah Manjier) linked the two attacks. This was disputed by other commentators.
There is much about this event that has been obfuscated and the fact that it has been “held in reserve” in the news cycle since first rumoured by Al Mayadeen on the 12 May seems to indicate this was a play for media narrative escalation.
Sorry, mistake on my part! I thought this was a re-run of the attacks one month ago. This is indeed a new attack. Interesting that it should take place one month from the last set of oil tanker attacks. Is someone signalling something or is it rather “two can play that game”?
Well, who do you think is the primary supporter of Israel?
The only reason Israel is able to do what it does is because of powerful people in the USA support it. Did you know that there is a USA military installation in Israel now?
The USA has done more to destabilize the middle east than any other country other the UK and perhaps France.
