The United States – Adrift and Rudderless on the Sea of Desperation.
It has been revealed that senior US official Brian Hook (Cap’n Hook, the pirate?) approached the new takeover captain of the illegally (piracy is still illegal, isn’t it?) seized (by Britain) Iranian Oil Tanker Grace 1 – now renamed – offering him several million dollars to take it somewhere the US could get hold of it.
“Having failed at piracy, the US resorts to outright blackmail—deliver us Iran’s oil and receive several million dollars or be sanctioned yourself.”
And this is not the only such approach to an Iranian tanker captain.
How low can you go, America? Your desperation is consuming your brain like some form of Tertiary Syphilis.
