After claiming a blurry black and white video showing nothing conclusive was proof that Iran attacked a couple of oil tankers, the Pentagon has now released some photos that they also say represents conclusive proof of Iran doing bad deeds.
The US Navy has released new photos of the aftermath of the attack on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The images are said to show an Iranian speedboat, approaching one of the vessels to remove an unexploded limpet mine.
The new images show the same episode earlier featured in a very low-quality black and white video released by the US military. The new pictures – clearer and colored – appear to be screengrabs from aerial footage of the incident.
The pictures show a speedboat, said to be Iranian, approaching the Japanese-owned tanker ‘Kokuka Courageous’ from the starboard side and removing a device that Pentagon insists is a limpet mine. According to Washington, this imagery somehow proves that Tehran was behind the attack.
“Iran is responsible for the attack based on video evidence and the resources and proficiency needed to quickly remove the unexploded limpet mine,” the US military said in a statement.
These photos prove absolutely nothing. Seriously, WTF do these photos prove? What the hell am I even looking at here?
Next they’ll probably tell us that they recovered a couple of Iranian passports in the Persian Gulf and say that this also represents proof that Iran attacked those oil tankers.
This whole narrative is retarded as fuck. They should just give it a rest and pretend as if none of this ever happened. There isn’t a single person on the Internet who seriously believes this bullshit.
