    The people wanting war have nothing to loss and everything to gain by sending other people to die for there profit.

    False flags are real yo

    IMHO they happen way more often than not. Yet the MSM never ever ever considers such things to even be in the realm of possibility.

    Very frustrating.

    history does repeat itself with all these false flag

    Burning of Reichstag - Hitler's excuse to blame the communist, escalation into WW2
    Gulf of Tonkin - Vietnam War
    WMD claims and 911 Terrorism connection - Iraq War

    and now Gulf of Oman

    This is a very strange one. It doesn't really benefit the US, Saudi, or Iran. It could support some actors inside those states, but its too sophisticated and too stupid all at once. This is unlikely to be a solo group as this would be hard to pull off (assuming put together recently) without state sponsorship.

    Except Abe is friendly with Trump and the closest thing to a conciliatory move from the administration by proxy. Everything to lose and nothing to gain for anyone involved at the top of any of the cast of characters. Only side stories like the hardliners make sense, but how could they get away with it without being exposed? Very unlikely.

    I think the goal was to make the current Iranian leadership (not the Ayatollah, other civilian leadership, including intelligence services) look weak and this attack was put in motion either by factions trying to maneuver into political power in Iran or by Saudi or another enemy of Iran (including various terror groups) who have an interest in clowning them. To have a Japanese ship attacked near Iran while the Prime Minister is visiting is pretty obviously an insult. Could also be a group just objecting to Iran/Japan relations. But insofar as Abe was there as a US proxy, this could just be an attempt to inflame the US into attacking Iran. In which case it can only be Saudi or Israel behind it.
