Iran intercepts another UK oil tanker in Strait of Hormuz


>>Julie: A FOX NEWS ALERT IRAN SEIZING CONTROL OF A BRITISH OIL TANKER IN THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ. THIS THE LATEST IN A SERIES OF INCIDENTS INVOLVING THE REVOLUTIONARY GUARD TARGETING TANKERS. LET’S BRING THE ANCHOR OF “SPECIAL REPORT” BRET BAIER. WHAT ARE REHEARING REGARDING U.K. SHIP.>>JULIE, GOOD AFTERNOON, THIS U.K. OIL TANKER, THE COMPANY PUT OUT A NOTICE THAT IT LOST CONTACT WITH THIS VESSEL SOME TIME TODAY. WE ARE BEING TOLD THROUGH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AND THE IRAN REVOLUTIONARY GUARD THAT IT SEIZED THIS VESSEL WITH IRANIAN SHIPS, SMALL CRAFTS AND A HELICOPTER. THERE ARE 23 PEOPLE ON BOARD. THE REASON THIS IS SIGNIFICANT IS OBVIOUSLY BECAUSE CONTINUED ESCALATION. THERE YOU SEE THE COMPANY’S STATEMENT ABOUT THIS DURING THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ TRANSIT. THIS IS AN ESCALATION. YOU HAD WILL UEA VESSEL AND OIL TANKER TAKEN CONTROL OF BY THE IRANIAN VESSELS IN THAT AREA. YOU OBVIOUSLY HAD THE — NOT SHOOT DOWN BUT BRING DOWN OF A IRANIAN DRONE THAT THE PRESIDENT ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY.>>Julie: RIGHT.>>Bret: THIS IS HIGH TENSION IN THAT REGION.>>Julie: HAD SURE IS. YOU JUST MENTIONED THE STATEMENT FROM THE U.K. COMPANY AND WE HAVE IT. LET’S PUT IT BACK ON THE SCREEN. WE LITERALLY JUST GOT. THIS WE DIDN’T READ IT THOUGH. U.K. VESSEL WAS APPROACHED BY UNIDENTIFIED SMALL CRAFT AND HELICOPTER DURING TRANSSIFT STRAIT OF HORMUZ WHILE THE VESSEL WAS INTERNATIONAL WATERS. WE ARE PRESENTLY UNABLE TO CONTACT THE VESSEL WHICH IS HEADING NORTH TOWARD IRAN 23 SEA FARERS ON BOARD. NO INJURIES AND THEIR SEVERITY IS OF PRIMARY CONCERN TO BOTH OWNERS AND MANAGERS. YOU JUST MENTIONED AND YOU BROUGHT UP THE FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT YESTERDAY DISCUSSED THE FACT THAT THE UNITED STATES BASICALLY HA DRONE THAT WAS SHOT DOWN. IRAN DENIED THAT CLAIM AND THEN TODAY THE DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER OF IRAN SAID THAT IN FACT, IT’S POSSIBLE THAT THE UNITED STATES SHOT DOWN ITS OWN DRONE. THIS SEEMS HIGHLY UNLIKELY. WHAT ARE YOU HEARING ABOUT THAT?>>Bret: NO. THE PENTAGON IS CONFIRMING THAT THEY WROUGHT DOWN AN IRANIAN DRONE. AND IT WASN’T SHOT DOWN. IT WAS BROUGHT DOWN WITH THIS KIND OF NEW DEVICE THAT JAMS THE.>>Julie: ELECTRICAL.>>Bret: DIFFUSES IT AND BRINGS IT DOWN. THE SECRETARY OF STATE JUST MOMENTS AGO SAID IT WENT DOWN. FOREIGN MINISTERS ZARIF DOESN’T KNOW ABOUT IT OR BLUE-EYED IT. I CAN’T ACCOUNT FOR HIS STATEMENTS YOU HAD THIS BACK AND FORTH BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY BACK AND FORTH IN THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ. NOW THE U.S. MILITARY THROUGH THE NAVY IS GOING TO BE MOVING ASSETS AND HAS ASSETS IN THE REGION ACCORDING TO HEAD OF CENTCOM ESSENTIALLY ESCORTING VARIOUS VESSELS AND THERE YOU HAVE THE POSSIBILITY, AT LEAST, OF SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, TICKING OFF AND CREATING A MILITARY INCIDENTS. THIS IS HIGH TENSION. AND THIS IS, YOU KNOW, FOR ALL THE BACK AND FORTH WE HEAR ABOUT IN WASHINGTON AND WHO SAID WHAT? THIS IS THE NEWS THAT REALLY MATTERS DAY TO DAY THAT POTENTIALLY COULD LEAD TO A BIG INCIDENT.>>Julie: THIS IS ALSO FRUSTRATING FOR THE UNITED STATES THE PRESIDENT HAS HE SAID TIME AND TIME AGAIN HE NEEDS EUROPEAN ALLIES TO JUMP IN AND ACTUALLY ASSIST IN TRYING TO SECURE THIS SHIPPING CHANNEL WHERE THIS IS ALL TAKING PLACE. WE JUST, IN FACT, GOT SOME SOUND FROM THE UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO ON ALL OF THIS. LET’S PLAY THAT AND THEN WE WILL REACT.>>IN THE END, PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL MAKE THE DECISION ABOUT HOW TO PROCEED. HE HAS MADE CLEAR WE’RE PREPARED TO CONDUCT NEGOTIATIONS WITH NO PRECONDITIONS, THE IRANIANS CONTINUE TO SAY WELL THEY WILL TALK IF AND ONLY IF THE UNITED STATES DOES SOMETHING. WE NEED THEM TO COME TO THE TABLE IT’S THE RIGHT WAY TO RESOLVE THESE CHALLENGES.>>Julie: WHO IS GOING TO COME TO THE TABLE FIRST?>>THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION. I THINK THE IRANIANS DON’T HAVE A LOT OF OPTIONS, JULIE. THEY ARE IN AN ECONOMIC PINCH. AND IRAN WANTS THE WORLD TO BELIEVE THAT IT’S DANGEROUS OR POSSIBLY RISKY TO GO THROUGH THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ AND THEREBY OIL GOES UP. IF THEY GO OVER THE LINE AND PUSH IT TOO FAR, THERE WILL BE U.S. MILITARY RESPONSE DIRECTLY. AND THAT CHANGES THE DYNAMIC 100 PERCENT. SO, IT IS A GAME OF CHICKEN THAT IRAN IS PLAYING CURRENTLY. AND WE WILL SEE HOWEVER THIS GOES, THE RESPONSE BY THE ADMINISTRATION WILL BE INTERESTING. AND THE BRITS WILL WEIGH, IN OBVIOUSLY, BECAUSE IT’S A U.K.-FLAGGED VESSEL THAT IS NOW IN IRANIAN CONTROL AS OF THIS AFTERNOON.>>Julie: I MEAN, LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW SERIOUS IT WOULD BE FOR THE FAILURE TO SECURE SUPPORT FOR THE MARITIME INITIATIVE. NOT ONLY WOULD THAT BE A BIG BLOW TO THE EFFORTS MADE BY THE UNITED STATES, IT WOULD BE A BLOW TO ITS SUNNI MUSLIM ALLY SAUDI ARABIA, THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES TO ISOLATE SHIA THIS THING IS ESCALATING BY THE DAY. WHO IS GOING TO TAKE THE YOU WERE HAND. OBVIOUSLY THE UNITED STATES WANTS TO TAMPER THINGS DOWN BUT WITHOUT OUR ALLIES, CAN WE DO IT?>>Bret: YEAH. I THINK THEY ARE HOPING THAT THE ALLIES WILL BE ON THE U.S. SIDE. THEY ARE INCREASING SANCTIONS. JUST YESTERDAY MORE SANCTIONS ON TWO IRANIANS WHO DIRECTLY HAVE BEEN HELPING IRANIAN MILITIAS INSIDE IRAQ. THERE IS A LONG HISTORY HERE. AND THE EUROPEANS HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION WHETHER THEY ARE GOING TO STAND WITH THE U.S. IT’S BEEN TENSE. THOSE RELATIONSHIPS, OBVIOUSLY. BUT I THINK THIS EVENT TODAY MAY CHANGE THE DYNAMIC A LITTLE BIT IN EUROPE.>>Julie: YEAH. AND NOW WITH THAT BASE THAT HAD JUST BEEN REOPENED SINCE 1990, RIGHT, IN SAUDI ARABIA. IT’S JUST SHOWING THE UNITED STATES IS CERTAINLY PUTTING UP A FIGHT HERE. I’M HOPING THEY GET SOME HELP.>>Bret: THEY MAY. AND OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE SAYING THAT IF YOU CONTINUE TO TEST US, WE WILL DO SOMETHING. THE ISSUE HERE IS YOU DON’T WANT IT TO GO OUT YOU HAVE CONTROL. SO THEY HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TAMPER BACK WITH SANCTIONS AND SMALL ACTIONS. BUT, IF THESE BOATS ATTACK, SOMETHING TELLS ME THERE WILL BE A FORCEFUL RESPONSE.>>Julie: ALL RIGHT. BRET BAIER, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

  1. What I want to know is, if this is EU policy as sanctions against Iran, then why are the likes of Spanish forces not enforcing EU sanctions? Why get the Brits to do it especially when they are leaving the EU?

  2. Iran wants to test the US patients and other countries connected to them they have China’s backing and Russia’s

  3. Maybe if the UK would drop the Royal Family nonsense, they could afford a few more warships to defend themselves

  5. Isn't that a act of piracy in international waters???? Take them out if they come with in 800 yards…

  6. Here is the Persian gulf inseparable part of the great Persia
    Go back to your homes if you have any you british and americans are never welcomed here

  7. Uk needs to charge BP ,for naval protection with fighter jets from UAE , radio frequency controlled from command posts on a Destroyer , with a sub surveillance of the area of operations , but stay away from their waters and tape it , so we have proof , when they get pounded

  8. And Fox doesn't tell you a word about UK seizure of Iranian ship in strait of Gibraltar 10 days ago . So it's ok for the UK to seize the Iranian ship in Gibraltar but not ok for Iran to retaliate ?

  9. For Fox news doesn't talk about one factor WW3 isn't far away it's USA Vs. China, Iran, Russia, whose going to fire the first missle for the first 50 people to die over GREED and STUPIDITY?? The best part there warnings in the Bible of the darkness of evil just fast forward that to today's times it's that easy.

  10. Britain needs to release the Iranian ship and let it return its course to Syria. Then Iran will release Britain’s oil ships in return

  11. This is abduction of innocent people. We are not at war but it may have just begun. UK and Britain need to take action now. This is not tolerated. Return them now or lose your whole naval fleet and oil tankers. I bet your allies will kick Iran to the curb and or Saudi Arabia has new land. Iran is gone forever. Enuff is enuff.

  12. By now We The People have to decide for ourselves what is right and wrong the news is biased. research and look closely you will notice how corrupt the reporting is.

  13. Trump's Grandstanding over the Iran nuclear deal is causing thing and costing other countries Billions of dollars,,,

  14. Don't be fooled! (((THEY))) are trying to make it look like white-anglo nations are being drawn into war, but (((THEY))) are instigating everything. I suppose the English could MAKE all the "Asian" migrants actually EARN all the welfare benefits that have been so graciously, yet forcibly, TAKEN from the REAL ENGLISH TAXPAYERS, without their consent or approval, and then given to the migrants FOR FREE, by making the migrants serve some MANDATORY MILITARY DUTY…. to fight against any Islamic nation that wants to war with the UK! I know, I know…do we REALLY want the "greedy little illegal alie…." ahem the "poor Islamic refugees" to have control of modern warfare weaponry? Probably not. So! Ship 'em over in old ships using WW2-style weaponry, and let ALL the Islamics battle it out with one another….ORRRRRRRRRR…maybe they'll make PEACE instead, and then the "new British citizens" will CHOOSE to MOVE BACK HOME, since they are "REFUGEES", afterall.

  15. Sooner or later iran is gonna keep screwing with other countries.. an mark my word, their gonna start getting blown out of the water..

  16. Well if Iran is attacking oil tankers guess its up to the UK to get off their asses and do something! Are they waiting for the us? After all UK IS NOT SPELLED USA!

  17. Remember what Sir Winston Churchill said about MUSLIN S. He said……………DON T TRUST THEM…………and that was 65 years ago……………….DON T TRUST THEM…….

  18. Smh comment sections leave me no hope for humans cnn trash but fox is just as bad and you guys r all on a team smhh left right stupid af

  19. Do not police the world Trump. The democrats want you to go to war so they can use it against you in the next election. Don't fall this game their playing

  20. If Great Britain doesn't want to do anything about it why should we? It's their ship, their oil and their problem. I thought becoming self sufficient or energy independent would have given us the luxury of not having to get involved with this sort of situation. Let the UN or EU deal with it.

  21. UK cowards already trying to pull peacefull tired after 2 world War Europenan countries trying to make an EU expedition ship well guess what… Hehe… They going brexit isn't it… Hehe they not in Europe anymore isn't it UK go wank. Europe is not stupid

  22. Both countries should show restraint and get back to the negotiating table we do not need another War….

  23. When is the UK and/or NATO going to do anything to stop Iran? Never. Why? Because for some foolish reason they like the Iran deal which for them is: they give money to Iran to develop nuclear weapons and Iran in exchange can steal their navy and take hostages. NATO is dead. NATO did nothing when Russia invaded Ukraine and NATO is doing nothing now. "Collective defense means that an attack against one Ally is considered as an attack against all Allies." Whatever NATO, whatever. If Putin invaded NATO right now NATO would no longer exist. You'd all be speaking Russian by the end of the week.

  24. IRAN IS REALLY ASKING FOR IT !! WHY SO CONFIDENT? WHAT PERSON WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEM INFO REGARDING MILITARY ECT

  25. I was listening to a podcast on WWI today. It's sad to see what my ancestors homeland has been reduced too, from running an empire that spanned the whole planet and fighting off the German war machine to a second rate, alcoholic confused country who is ashamed of being what it is. It's a shame.

  26. Why is the uk carrier sailing knowing that the situation of that area is extremly dangerous? Someone plz explain

  27. The US and its allies trying everthing to invade Iran ? Iran needs a saviour the one and only ‘Putin’

  28. Fact: britian puts their tanker in Iranian waters, ignores Iranian warnings to leave, Britain turns off transponder, irainians seize tanker.
    Iran does have video proof that they did not take down the drown. US and Zionist coalition ignores proof.
    Plot twist: Iraq 2.0, there were no wmd's and we want in anyway. Ghadafhi had overwhelming support of his people and we went in anyway. Syria almost had Isis dealt with and US came in "to help" and now isis strong again, we want in anyway…
    Look at all the American bases around iran. Look at all Iranian bases around America. Then ask yourself; who is the aggressor here?

  30. Gee maybe if a missile was pointed at all you jokers house you might not want to tell jokes on social media it may happen jerks .

  31. These ships should each have armed escorts and a couple of hundred special forces on board to fend off the IRGC terrorists. Why the UK and the USA are not doing this is beyond logic. Now the Iranians have another ship and a lot more hostages.

  32. Clearly this is a U.N. matter. If not then what the heck did we create the U.N. for? Too much hate in this world, we all bleed red. Enough with Wars already

  33. Send a dummy tanker by remote control full to the brim with explosives when they board it send them to meet their Allah oh ye
