There are reports just coming in that Iran has seized 1 2 3 (?!) British-linked oil tankers in the Persian Gulf.
This is in response to analogous British piracy off Gibraltar a few weeks ago.
Anyhow I suppose we will soon see how special the “special relationship” between the US and the UK really is.
PS. In an ironic twist, while the crew of the Stena Impero (the first captured tanker) didn’t have any Brits, it did have Russians.
