Iran tries and fails to seize British ship: Reports

Iran tries and fails to seize British ship: Reports


JONATHAN HUNT IN L.A., THANK YOU VERY MUCH. BREAKING NEWS THIS EVENING, REPORTS THAT ARMED MEMBERS OF IRAN’S REVOLUTIONARY GUARD JUST TRIED TO SEIZE A BRITISH TANKER IN THE PERSIAN GULF AS IT CROSSED INTO THE STRATA FORM. INITIAL REPORTS SAY THAT ATTEMPT WAS UNSUCCESSFUL, ALTHOUGH THERE IS SOMETHING THAT THE IRANIAN — THAT IS SOMETHING THAT THE IRANIAN PRESIDENT THREATENED TO DO JUST YESTERDAY IN RETALIATION FOR AN IRANIAN TANKER THAT WAS SEIZED BY THE BRITISH EARLIER THIS WEEK. ALSO NEW TONIGHT, THE REGIME ACCUSING THE UNITED STATES OF ECONOMIC TERRORISM AND CALLING ITS SANCTIONS “WEAPONS OF WARFARE” AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP TODAY THREATENED MORE SANCTIONS SOON. THE IRANIAN AMBASSADOR TO THE IAEA RESPONDING “THE STATISTIC TO THE TENDENCY OF THE TO USE ILLEGAL UNILATERAL SANCTIONS AS AN INSTRUMENT TO COERCE SOVEREIGN STATES AND PRIVATE ENTITIES SHOULD COME TO AN END.” STREAMING OUT EXCLUSIVELY IS MARIA FERNANDA ESPINOZA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY. PRESIDENT ESPINOZA, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING HERE TONIGHT. FIRST OF ALL, WHAT’S YOUR REACTION TO THIS NEWS THAT IT LOOKS LIKE, ACCORDING TO THESE REPORTS, IRAN ACTUALLY DID TRY TO SEIZE THIS TANKER?>>I THINK THAT THE UNITED NATIONS IS ABOUT PREVENTING CONFLICT. IT’S ABOUT DIALOGUE, IT IS ABOUT DIPLOMACY AND THAT THESE ARE THE PRINCIPLES THAT WE STAND BY.>>Martha: SO THERE WAS A STATEMENT PUT OUT BY THE U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL ON THE GULF AND THE STRAIGHT INCIDENTS SAYING THAT COUNCIL MEMBERS URGE CONCERNED PARTIES IN ALL COUNTRIES IN THE REGION TO EXERCISE MAXIMUM RESTRAINT AND TAKE MEASURES AND ACTIONS TO REDUCE EXCLAMATIONS AND THE TENSION. SO WHAT WOULD BE THE U.N.’S MESSAGE TONIGHT ABOUT WHAT APPEARS TO BE HAPPENING ON THE PART OF THE IRANIANS?>>AVOID CONFLICT, IT’S ABOUT DIALOGUE.>>Martha: ATTEMPTING TO SEIZE THE SHIP IS NOT AVOIDING CONFLICT.>>IT IS ABOUT COMPLYING WITH THE COMMITMENTS WE HAVE AGREED UPON.>>Martha: I GUESS ONE OF THE FRUSTRATIONS THAT PEOPLE HAVE WHEN THEY HEAR THAT IS THAT IT FEELS LIKE IT DOESN’T HAVE ANY TEETH, ANY ABILITY TO STOP THEM. THIS BODY OF NATIONS THAT WAS FORMED TO TRY TO BE A COLLECTIVE AGAINST THESE THINGS. WHAT YOU SAY TO THOSE CRITICS?>>I THINK THE KEY WORD IS “COLLECTIVE.” I THINK THE NUCLEAR AGREEMENT WAS SIGNED BY SEVERAL PARTIES, INCLUDING THE PERMANENT MEMBERS, THE FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL. THE EUROPEAN UNION, IRAN IN THE CASE OF A NUCLEAR DEAL, AND IT HAS TO BE COMPLIED BY ALL SIGNATORIES. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE COMPLY AND ABIDE WITH THIS.>>Martha: AS YOU KNOW, PRESIDENT TRUMP DECIDED THAT HE FELT IT WAS NOT A PACKED THAT WAS ACHIEVING ITS GOAL AND WANTED TO REMOVE THE UNITED STATES FROM THAT. HERE HE IS LAST YEAR AT THE U.N. TALKING ABOUT ENRON AND I WANT TO GET YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE REPEAT — THE NEXT APPEARANCE OF THE PRESIDENT THERE.>>WE CANNOT ALLOW THE REGIME THAT CHANTS “DEATH TO AMERICA” AND THREATENS ISRAEL WITH ANNIHILATION TO POSSESS THE MEANS TO DELIVER A NUCLEAR WARHEAD TO ANY CITY ON EARTH.>>Martha: DO YOU AGREE?>>WHAT I CAN SAY, MARTHA, AGAIN, I THINK I WOULD INVITE THEM TO READ THE U.N. CHARTER BY THE UNITED STATES AT A VERY INSTRUMENTAL ROLE, INCLUDING ELEANOR ROOSEVELT, IN THE DRAFTING OF THE CHARTER. THE U.N. STANDS BY PREVENTING CONFLICT, BY PROMOTING COOPERATION>>Martha: TO NOT ALLOW IRAN TO CHANT “DEATH TO AMERICA AND THREATEN TO ANNIHILATE ISRAEL FOR EXAMPLE.>>I THINK IT IS ABOUT DIALOGUE. IT IS ABOUT CONVERSATION, AND THOSE OF THE PRINCIPLE IS THAT WE STAND BY. AND WE ALSO I THINK IN THE UNITED NATIONS, REALLY PROMOTES MULTILATERALISM, EVEN IF IT’S A VERY DIFFICULT WORD TO PRONOUNCE, EVEN FOR ME, THAT I’M NOT AN ENGLISH SPEAKER. IT’S ABOUT COOPERATION. IT’S ABOUT SOLIDARITY AMONG NATIONS AND IT’S ABOUT PREVENTING CONFLICT. SO OUR MAIN RESPONSIBILITY IS ABOUT PREVENTING CONFLICT, PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE –>>Martha: I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK THAT COULD BE ACCOMPLISHED BY HOLDING HIS RESOLUTIONS THAT ARE PUT OUT BY THE U.N. TO COUNTRIES LIKE IRAN. THANK YOU. IF YOU HAVE A LOT ON YOUR PLATE AND WE ONLY GOT TO IRAN TONIGHT,

    Sep 25, 2018 – Taking the podium of the United Nations General Assembly, the world Organization that embodies greater global cooperation, United States President Donald Trump told scores of Heads of State and Government on Tuesday that his country rejects the ideology of globalism.

    Wow. People do we want another endless war? Why don’t we get back in the nuclear deal, doesn’t that make more sense than trying to brute force our way through everything? It would save a lot of money and at the same time save hard earned tax payer dollars while keeping the Middle East a little more stable.

    The UN is a useless organization that has been co opted by these smaller nations as a way to criticize the US. We don't need them. They criticize the US and Israel yet have nothing to say about Iran's blatant aggression and funding of terrorism.

    The only thing more useless than the UN is this idiotic woman who couldn't say anything of substance beyond spouting Platitudes in response to every single question.

    It's not that simple.
    Not too long ago, the CIA meddled in Iranian affairs and destroyed a burgeoning democracy.
    We continue to witness the resulting havoc and misery.
    Ditto for Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, most of Central and South America, the Caribbean including Haiti, most of Africa etc.

    Get the picture??

    North America and Europe next on the hit list unless we all wakeup and unite against the self appointed psychopathic 'authorities'.

    She couldn't answer a single question. I felt like I just watched a propaganda ad for the U.N. in the format of a toothpaste commercial on the home shopping channel. If this is the U.N.'s attitude on this, then they are useless here on out.

    While Democrat snivelers complain about Pres. Trump's position on Iran and howl about going to war, the Iranians demonstrate their ineptitude in basic maritime military operations. Let's remember that the Iranians and Iraqis fought for years to a standstill, and the U.S rolled the Iraqis up in a couple of weeks.

    The UN is compromised, because of the OIC. Western democracy is non-compatible with Islamic theocracy.

    So the US ok to get out of a nuclear deal while Iran should not to… So it is ok to Israel having 300 nuclear warheads and it is not a threat to anyone but Iran is with no actual nuclear weapon at all. So it is ok to the British to seize an Iranian ship but Iran can not do the same with the British. So it is ok to spy a country by the US but you are not right to protect your own borders. Israel has no balls to try getting out someone on it's way so let's do on a disgusting way. Does anyone buy this? 🙂

    Economic sanctions are weapons of warfare.  Would they rather have the real McCoy?  Power controls on a much more egregious level within their own country.  They most certainly understand power vs. weakness in every capacity.  They have a way to go on the evolutionary ladder of world cultures with regard to the value of the sanctity of human life. They are hoping the leftist nutjobs in our country use it for fake news
    fodder against our duly elected President.  Don't underestimate the right. Trump 2020.

    The UN is at best a completely useless PC body neutered of all practical purpose, and at worst the most dangerous pacifier of Nations into capitulating to the base evils of us all.

    Powerless, need everyone to back off now, de escelate. America showed unfortunately to Japan what destructive power a weapon of mass destruction is capable of and here we all worried it can happen again but much greater. We need some electronic system that would burnout all the war electronic systems and make them dinosors forever amen.

    Again, the population suffers from politics: civillian tankers get seized and sanctions hurt the people, not the country (regime), so make absolutely no sense, ever.

    Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand. Tomorrow is not promised. Forgive and ye should be forgiven, don't forgive and ye shall not be forgiven, show mercy and mercy shall be shown unto you. Don't show mercy don't expect mercy. Judge and ye shall be judged also, judge not and ye will not be judged. May the Lord thy God be with you all.

    Outstanding interview. If there was any doubt about the UN ineffectiveness, I believe this interview strategy made it clear. Well done. Btw, also underscored the level of intellect of a UN member. She didn’t see that coming.

    UK should give back the stolen oil tanker of Iran plus full financial compensation.

    iran is a diversion, it knows it can't match the Mighty US militarily so it just barks but won't bite..
    The US knows who the real threat is so it probably wouldn't focus much on iran .
