    Iran does this periodically (previously in 1984 and 2012). They attack tankers to try to assert their authority over the Persian gulf and to try to reduce revenue for their adversaries (primarily Iraq and Saudi Arabia). This continues for a few weeks. The price of oil shoots up, liberals wring their hands, and then eventually the US sends in a some naval ships, sinks a few Iranian gunboats, and the status quo is restored.

    The world - doesn't - believe claims that the Iranians are attacking tankers.

    Until I see positive proof of Iran laying mines or firing torpedoes I'm calling BULLSHlT.

    As I just said, and as 97% of all scientific studies on the topic suggest, oil and fossil fuels are possibly going to cause the collapse of civilization in thirty years time, give or take, and the give or take is the end of the world or slightly less destruction. The world can stop using oil, and support anyone who tries to attack people trying to end the world.
