    "International law requires that the right of international passage shall not be impeded" ????? But the British seizure of the Iranian oil tanker, which this was a DIRECT reaction to isn't a violation of that same law?. Do they not see the hypocrisy or do they just not care because no one is going to stop them? The options they're trying to give Iran are: Become a vassal state or War. This is honestly disgusting.
    The UN needs to step up and ACTUALLY be an agency of peace. The United States violated the treaty IT put in place, enacts sanctions which Europe is all too happy to follow DESPITE Iran STILL keeping to the violated treaty. All because the U.S elected a racist lunatic fraud. We live in a mad world. How can there be "Peace in the middle east" when all they do is sow chaos. Then they have the gall to complain about a refugee crisis they started. Maybe stick to the treaties you signed???? Maybe Stop destabilizing countries??? This is so infuriating, that money could be spent in much needed areas that ACTUALLY benefit their populations.

    Everything belongs to the Colonial master The Suez Canal, Irans ships.
    Also the Colonial Master has the right to steal your treasures and bomb you because he's more civilised and democratic.
    And yes Iam mocking Britian. If you read about their history they go on and on about how wonderful they are despite occupying a quarter of the world.
    Britian and America are a deluded, supremacist, colonial thug.
    And it's the fault of the Islamic world that are still doing this to us.

    UK said US ask us to take Iran tanker so we did it because of Eu sanctions (which is Iran is not part of Eu) so now go ask USA to come and help you for your tanker, Since US believes they bring peace and stability to Persian golf.
