Because we couldn't get there from a flat planet?

I KNOW there is life on other planets, and I'm reasonably intelligent on standard testing scales, around 135 IQ:

It seems so amazing that both the US AND Russia went to space with what seems such limited tech. Each country got behind an ideal and did the impossible

These days with the global sharing we just need to get a goal. There is no lack of ability just a lack of direction. We have global communication in the palms of our hands

You whippersnappers get your duck in a row and do SOMETHING. If challenged you could get a million likes. Drop that incentive to be correct. Create teleportation. End intolerance. Get us a base on Mars. Cure cancer

Conspiracy theorist

Everyone knows we sent men 293,000 miles to the moon and back 50 years ago when computers had a fraction of the processing power and memory of our cell phones. If only NASA hadn’t lost the technology.

Perhaps the evidence was collected from classified sources and the United States would prefer to avoid disclosing these collection methods and sources to our enemies?



Naw, that couldn't be it. I'm sure it's your conspiracy theory that's correct. Let's go with that one. lol.

How would coming out and giving exact coordinates of where it was reveal any sources? Or better yet some footage from its camera showing what it was looking at when it was shot so we get an idea of where it might be.

They didn't have any problem showing us footage from that same drone when it took pictures of boats the few days before did they?

You can call my ideas conspiracy theory and I can call your idea a conspiracy theory too since there's no evidence n either direction. So for now the silence is defeating. Is anything this clouded in mystery justification for war?

Hardly!

Hope more ppl can think for themselves especially when these guys start asking for war yet again in another month

No one is waiting because it will never come. Just highlighting something that they are hoping will go away just like the Epstein story.

Wish the smart ppl would start paying attention again

Iran state television said Thursday that the regime seized a foreign tanker along with its 12-member crew. The admission comes after an oil tanker based in the United Arab Emirates disappeared earlier this week.

The Revolutionary Guard forces intercepted the ship in the Strait of Hormuz, south of Iran’s Larak Island.

The Panamanian-flagged oil tanker MT Riah stopped transmitting its location overnight on Sunday near Qeshm Island, which has a Revolutionary Guard base on it, according to data listed on tracking site Maritime Traffic.

Iran’s state television did not identify the seized vessel, but said it was intercepted on Sunday. According to the Associated Press, the admission contradicts a statement made by Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday that said it offered assistance to a foreign oil tanker with a malfunction.

Probably totally unrelated to taking their tanker by U.K.s brave soldiers. Totally unrelated

Well, the Iranian ship was violating sanctions and international law and this tanker was doing no such thing - however, from Iran's point of view - where they don't agree with the sanctions placed on them, then it could simply be 'payback'. Up to you on how you want to interpret it, I guess.

Depends on how you define international waters. If by Iranian standards, than it was probably in their waters, just like the other 800+ ships that transit through there every 24 hours.

If my the standards of every other country on earth and by maritime law - then it was in international waters.

Again, Up to you on how you want to interpret it, I guess.

Sanctions aren't international law

They can just say they have sanctioned all tankers and it's just as valid as our sanctions. Sanctions are just as valid as yo can enforce it with military

For us we enforce sanctions as if it's a law because we are preparing for a war. Vietnam and Iraq were the same exact pattern!

If you could find where I said that, it would be quite helpful. But I imagine you won't, since you tend to make up stuff that fits your narrative.

Quote:

They violated sanctions and violated international law noted below:

Selling oil to Syria was a violation of International law, Law of Nations, subsection War and armed conflict, paragraph Advisory opinion on the promoting a country that violates the "Legality of the Threat or Use of Chemical Weapons."
