    Sanctions almost always lead to war.

    Why do uninformed, evil people hate the US for trying to help? The only reason we have a navy was to protect from the attacks by Islamic nations who said we had to pay tribute in subjugation to exist. The whole reason for American independence was the right to distance ourselves from the Islamic slave trade too.

    What about our lot impounding an Iranian ship in Gibraltar?
    This ship was just carrying a flag, it wasn't an actual British ship.

    Its all part of winding things up and start a war again. What they dont realise British public are seeing through this political war mongers and will not support another war. Just give them their damn vessel and they will return ours.

    Stupid, only UK owned or flagged ship will be in the question. Do not drag other countries into UK provocation in the first place. Besides, UK is not in the EU any more.

    Return the ship confiscated by Great britain to Iran. That's all it takes to deescalate. Even Spain critisized Britains act. Why would they?

    Leave "The West" out of this. It's a US/UK issue. The rest is looking at the east for future cooperation.
