WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Five boats believed to belong to Iranian Revolutionary Guards approached a British oil tanker in the Gulf on Wednesday and asked it to stop in Iranian waters close by, but withdrew after a British warship warned them over radio, a U.S. defense official said.

“The UK’s Royal Navy frigate HMS Montros had been escorting the tanker,” the Jerusalem Post reports. “When given orders by the Iranian ships, the Navy frigate pointed its guns on the Iranians and warned them to back away. The Iranian ships backed away in response to the verbal warning.”

The Washington Examiner further reports the following:

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned Britain earlier in the day for previously seizing an Iranian tanker.

“The British unjustifiably seized the tanker in territorial waters of Spain where they occupy, as well as Gibraltar,” he said, according to Rouhani’s press office. “We must all work hard to ensure full security in shipping lines throughout the world, and I tell the British that they are the initiator of insecurity and you will understand its consequences later.”

    Too bad the Brits didn’t fire on them, they are pushing the buttons and unfortunately they will do something else.
    Thanks to Obama and Kerry they screwed the Nation by letting them get away with their Blackmail, wont work now, hopefully Britain and other countries see how dangerous they are to everyone.

    They’re picking a fight, they want this. Britain isn’t stupid, they’ll protect their own, just like we will. When push comes to shove, well be the ones to shove them so hard that they’ll have no choice but to back away and never get near our boats or that of our allies ever again.

    Blow them out of the water and sail on. No rescuing of survivors. No respect non given.
