              US never roar like lion in the midst of the information warfare. He has nothing to do with Iran since Russian government is behind them. Never wonder USA president currently will last to lead in third war since it's begins in 1989, during the fall of Berlin wall and destruction of September 11 2001. It is a great deal bare on our kneel....

                            I don't know why people are criticizing the US for getting involved in the Tanker War when they are the same people who would complain if their oil prices jumped to $7.00 a gallon like in 1973. Pick a side....

                                        Trump is owned by Israel. It seems to me that Israel is causing the US a lot of problems, since they were against the Iran Deal.

                                          Not surprised since his daughter and son-in-law are both jews and heavely supported by Israel. Jared kushner is running the middle east policy

                                        If the US is a so-called "#1 oil exporter" now, why the EFF are we still in the ME? Greed I suspect.

Barack Obama tried to prevent this disaster which Iranians were facing and we want Barack Obama back as the president of U.S. but because of Donald Trump, Iran is suffering again after their drop in GDP growth.... No offense but that is the truth.... And no negative comment plz, thank you!!!

The reason for the British ship's conquest was that: the British ship disregarded Iranian law and dumped its litter in the Persian Gulf, and Britain had seized the Adrian II ship in the Strait of Bab al-Mandeb by spying and circumventing maritime laws. There is something we have been saying in Iran.

That literally makes no sense, I have never heard of anyone attacking someone to keep peace. You attack others to start a war, then eventually you get peace depending on the victor. But other then your final point it was a good little documentary.
