  1. Imagine being the crew on one of these in hot waters like this. Not knowing if some political dustup is going to trap you in a foreign nation indefinitely.

  2. Under what rights does US get to seize an Iranian tanker? US can refuse trade with Iran but Iran can trade with the rest of the world.

    Seizing a tanker is an act of war, maybe Bolton is hoping Iran reacts and US can spin it as some sort of Iranian aggression and combining it with enough anti Islam sentiment, maybe it will be enough to get public support for a war.

  3. Another humiliating defeat for Trump.

  4. What does this have to do with the US? Aggravating the situation is the absolute antithesis of what we’re supposed to do in the region.
