    'Great Britain' is no longer 'Great' just another lackey of the American Zio empire. Britain was finished a long time ago.

    UK has neither the clout nor the ability to sanction another country,with its struggling economy I'm not even sure what the UK can do

    Britain and Iran are both sovereign nations, not Empires!
    Respect each others sovereignty and resolve this by releasing ships rather than aggression and applying more sanctions!

    We have to recognise we don’t have an empire anymore we can’t unilaterally seize another countries ship and expect no retaliation

    It is interesting a lot of officials are expressing all sorts of opinions but none of them refer to the seizing of Iranian ship that started all of this.

    what is it? a joke interview?
    I thought Brits are aware of “eye or eye” , “Tit for Tat” concept.
    any mention of Britain act of sea piracy by first stealing an Iranian tanker?!?

    Given Britain’s track record over the last two decades of weakness in the face of their opponents, how can the prime minister, the cabinet and senior civil servants think that this confrontation can end with anything less than a humiliating British climbdown?
    To seize an Iranian oil tanker, however legally justified the seizure might be, and not take the most stringent precautions against the inevitable Iranian retaliation, is reckless.(Independent)

    At least one of the UK tankers that Iran seized had turned off its electronic signal that allows it to be tracked AND other marine traffic know that a ship is there - an absolute violation of international maritime law.
