Iran warns US against seizing newly released ship


MELISSA: THREATENING SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES. TEHRAN WARNING THE U.S. AGAINST INTERFERENCE AFTER AN IRANIAN TANKER SEIZED BY BRITISH ROYAL MARINES IN JULY WAS RELEASED FROM DETENTION OFF GIBRALTAR, IS HEADING TOWARDS GREECE. PETER BROOKES, HERITAGE FOUNDATION AND FORMER DEPUTY SECRETARY OF DEFENSE. THANKS FOR JOINING US. A LOT OF PEOPLE SPECULATED WE WOULDN’T SEE THE BRITISH TANKER RELEASED UNTIL THE UK’S TANKER IS RELEASED HOLDING ON TO, THAT IT WOULD BE A SIMULTANEOUS THING. THAT APPEARS NOT TO BE THE CASE RIGHT? THE UK TANKER IS IN CUSTODY, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS?>>I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A SIMULTANEOUS RELEASE. IT DIDN’T HAPPEN THAT WAY. I UNDERSTAND FROM OFFICIAL REPORTS, NEWS REPORTS THAT THE BRITS DO HAVE ASSURANCES FROM IRANIANS THAT THEIR TANKER WILL BE RELEASED. I EXPECT THAT WILL HAPPEN IN SHORT ORDER. THE, MAY HAVE BEEN PART OF THE AGREEMENT THAT IT WOULD BE ONE AND THEN THE OTHER. SO THIS, IN THIS SENSE WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS OVER THE COMING DAYS, MELISSA. WHETHER IRANIANS DO MEET THEIR PART OF THE BARGAIN. MELISSA: YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHY THE DEAL WAS STRUCK THIS WAY. IT SEEMS TO THE NAKED YES WOULD MAKE THE IRANIANS LIKE THEY WERE IN A STRONGER POSITION OR MAYBE THAT IS WHAT IS DESIGNED TO LOOK LIKE, OR THAT IS NOT THE CASE, THAT IS THE SIGNAL THEY WANT TO SEND? HOW DO YOU READ INTO THAT?>>IRAN IS VERY WEAK BECAUSE OF THE ECONOMIC CHALLENGES THEY FACE. MAXIMUM PRESSURE CAMPAIGN OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST THEM. BEING AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENT, INTERNAL PRESSURES THAT THEY FACE. I THINK THEY WANT TO DO THIS. PROBABLY, VERY, VERY IMPORTANT FOR THEM, FOR THEIR DOMESTIC AUDIENCE. INTERNATIONAL AUDIENCE WILL SEE IT FOR WHAT IT IS AS LONG AS A BRITISH TANKER IS RELEASED. FOR THE DOMESTIC AUDIENCE TO LOOK STRONG INTERNATIONALLY IN FACE OF INTERNAL WEAKNESSES. MELISSA: HAVE THANKS CALMED DOWN IN THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ? HAS IT BECOME DISTRACTED OR IS IT CALMER?>>WE HAVE BEEN DISTRACTED. THERE IS A LOT OF TENSION. THERE IS POSSIBILITY OF A CRISIS. THERE IS LOT OF THINGS GOING ON WITH SHIPS AND AIRCRAFT IN THE AIR, THAT COULD LEAD TO CRISIS NEXT TIME. IRAN MAY BE REEVALUATING THEIR STRATEGY. THEY ATTACKED SIX TANKERS. SEIZED THREE. SHOT DOWN AN AMERICAN DRONE. THERE IS LOT OF ATTENTION GOING ON THERE, MAYBE THEY REEVALUATE THE SITUATION. IRANIANS SAID NO WAY THEY NEGOTIATE WITH THE UNITED STATES UNLESS IT IS GOING BACK TO THE 2015 JOINT COMPREHENSIVE PLAN OF ACTION OR IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL. MELISSA: WHILE YOU’RE HERE, I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE MYSTERY ABOUT THE EXPLOSION IN RUSSIA. IT IS DEEPENING, FOUR NUCLEAR MONITORING STATIONS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO DETECT RADIATION HAVE GONE SILENT THAT LEAVES A LOT OF US WONDERING HAVE THEY BEEN TURNED OFF SO THEY ARE NOT REPORTING RADIATION OR DID THEY SIZZLE BECAUSE OF THE RADIATION ITSELF, WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>I THINK WE’RE LOOKING AT RADIOACTIVE SILENCE OR RADIO SCIENCE AS YOU SAID IN THE LEAD-UP TO THIS. RUSSIANS ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THIS. THIS IS A NUCLEAR POWERED CRUISE MISSILE, A VERY BAD IDEA FOR A WEAPONS PROGRAM, BECAUSE IT WOULD RELEASE RADIOACTIVITY OVER ANYBODY IT FLEW OVER THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THIS WEAPONS SYSTEM HAS FAILED. THEY’RE WORRIED ABOUT RADIOACTIVE RELEASE. THERE HASN’T BEEN MUCH REPORTING OF THIS, ALTHOUGH I DID HEAR ABOUT A NORWEGIAN STATION TALKING ABOUT IT. NOBODY LIKES RADIOACTIVITY. IT WILL RUIN YOUR DAY, CERTAINLY. PEOPLE ARE REMINDED OF 1986 IN CHERNOBYL. FOR THIS REGIME, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR THEM BECAUSE THEY ALSO LOST A SUBMARINE LAST MONTH. IF YOU REMEMBER, WE MAY NOT HAVE TALKED A LOT ABOUT IT HERE ON THE AIR BUT THEY LOST ONE, FOR AUTHORITARIAN REGIME, TO LOOK LIKE IT IS NOT ABLE TO MAINTAIN ITS MILITARY PROGRAM AND

  1. And America has attacked multiple Iranian ships and sites As has Americans Allies
    America should look at its own violence and breeches of international laws before it accuses or attacks another
    America is the biggest threat in the Middle East

  2. Lol the comments below saying the USA* should go after the Iranian* tanker and seize it. Don't say you are going to do something like that if you're not really going to.

  3. lol
    , now that "Adrian Darya" got a persian name and iran's flag , pleaseeeeeeeeee seize it??? plzzzzzz if u have the balls do anything to it lol :)))) last time it stoped only cause the ship was sailing under panama's flag, now with iran's flag on it any threat o harm to it will be act of war , so go buy urself some balls before say sink it or seize it .

  4. It could be, there was no agreement, and Gibraltar high court acted independently to dismiss the illegally captured vessel, as they reported days ago. It is not a tit for tat political ploy that Fox News has assumed.

  5. Fox re wrights history to fit an alternate universe. Every word a lie. Putin is having a ball embarrassing US with walking us into an Afghanistan like proxy war with Iran and a S400 commercial for Russia.

  6. We invaded Iraq for far far less in terms of provocation, so we should invade Iran and remove the Islamic government and replace it with a democratic one. Anything would be better than a government based on a religion

  7. How ironic that the US is threatening to seize another country's ship in international waters. Isn't the US supposed to be protecting freedom of navigation? LOL what a joke.

  8. they dont want that ship siezed because it is a stolen ship, why else would all the vend numbers and names and identifications on the sides have been painted over? why is the name of ship been painted over? answer that?

  9. Offcourse they did, you try to take oil from their country and choke them of resources including western medicine. What do you expect? Imagine a burgular entering your home taking your stuff and also telling post office guy to stop delivering.

  10. Iran should send its Navy to protect its ship. US and EU sanction law doesn’t apply to Iran. Iran is sovereign nation.

  11. The American people with their own failure to act or to even protest against these clear abuses from the USA will see them completely and utterly annihilated.

    It really is as simple as that, what can anyone say?

    That's the American peoples choice.

    And for some unknown reason, that not even they can explain, they all seem to think the USA is in the right today.

    You could not make it up.

    But there you go, that's what happens when entire societies lack any sort of education.

    They don't even understand why doing nothing is so wrong. Ask them.
    They even think they will win? Can anyone believe that? They've ZERO chance!

  12. The American people have knowingly ignored their governments admitted use of brutal terrorists and disgustingly we've not seen a single American protest their government over this admitted criminal terrorism.

    Why are the American people not outraged at what they all know their government is doing in Syria?

    Don't the American people care?

    Why do we see Americans praising their country?

    Have I missed something?

    When did the American people become Nazi's?

  13. Ol Baby Boomers going to fight over oil to their last dying breath, coming up shortly. Thrash all you like, your end is soon.

  14. Iran warns the US , the title alone is a complete joke. Iran will do nothing but sit back and say "duh , which way did they go boss , duh"

  15. You better hurry up and attack Iran so you can distract everyone from looking into your failed economic policies

  16. Faux and tRump (the same thing ) want a war. The former is losing advertisers and the latter's economy is tanking.

  17. You all must watch a lot of CIA Fox News. You dont realize how strong and connected Iran is or how many enemies you have. You also don't realize that Judgement from on high is at your door step.

  18. Iran captured our ssilors shot our drone down confiscated UK ship made them release Iran's ship without even releasing theirs in return…….but they are weak?????

  19. What the heck is with fox ? Joining the fake news what a shame people listen to the E I B station. If you need more info your not worth it.

  20. When someone warns you listen. If something bad comes out of this for government being involved don't say you weren't warned at least this time they gave a warning before causing terror

  21. I think it's about time to see just what their (Heavy consequences), really are..! NOW.! That boat should be searched…….

  22. i'm iranian
    iran isn't weak, i think shooting dawn a surveillance drone at an altitude of 50,000 feet proves it.
    iranian people aren't in disagreement with government in its fundamental values but rather in its corruption which by now is being swept away rapidly by the new leader of judiciary system.
    we iranians are a proud people if USA shows respect, will sow respect otherwise it will face its downfall both in minds of people around the world and in real life in fact any agression against iran will be repeating BATTLE OF CARRHAE.
    crassus was a rich stupid man like trump is and iranians were underestimated and the result was defeat of arrogant side.

  23. IRAN is warning the United States 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂PLEASE STOP IT.

  24. There is no lawful authority to seize another country's ship from international waters. The United States does not own the world.

  25. Iran doesn't trust the Brits who are in bed with the US Deep State War Mongers… Iran will release the British ship once their ship reaches it's destination… WITHOUT US INTERVENTION.

  26. US better chill out. All the other nations are getting tired of bullying. Your so-called allies are taking notes of your history with bullying. Oooh boy !

  27. What an idiot, Iran is weak.
    Hell no Britannia has weak case, no navy either. Iran will ruin Britannia, EU and us economy with little effort!

  28. Like what is that 3rd world crap hole of a country Iran actually gonna do I’d love to watch them get removed from the globe

  29. Iran is a very weak nation and if they fail to release the British tanker following the release of the Iranian Grace 1 they will pay the price as a bunch of foolish negotiators..Regime change will happen in Iran!

  30. I'm so sick of these small insignificant countries pretending to have power. Iran needs to be reintroduced to imperialism
