SunnySandy: IMO The Deep State has been in Iran since the 1950s. China helped the US free NK last year from the Deep State. Russia is helping the US free Cuba and Venezula from the Deep State, now!
By our fleet in the Gulf and Arabian Sea we are saying… Deep State…. do not do it! You will pay a price. Last week Trump offered Iran a tree branch (again)…. saying let’s talk, leave the Deep State, we can renegotiate, you be free like Iraq (and NK). Iran just has to make the choice to join the NEW MIDDLE EAST!

Don961: After canceling his visit to Moscow … Pompeo heads to Brussels to discuss the “Iran file”
May 13, 2019 5:13 PM Author: alzawraapaper
Riyadh / Middle East Online:
Tensions have risen in the Gulf, where several ships have been subjected to acts of sabotage, according to Riyadh and Abu Dhabi, while US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo amended his tour plans to Brussels and discussed the Iranian file with European officials.
On Monday, Saudi authorities announced that two Saudi oil tankers had been hit by a “subversive attack” off the UAE coast. “Two Saudi tankers have been attacked with sabotage on their way to cross the Arabian Gulf into the economic waters of the United Arab Emirates, near the emirate of Fujairah,” the official SPA news agency quoted the minister as saying. The United Arab Emirates said on Sunday that four merchant ships of several nationalities had been “subversive” in their waters off Iran, in the east of the emirate of Fujairah without specifying the perpetrators, calling the incident “dangerous.”
In Tehran, authorities expressed “concern” about the exposure of ships in the UAE for acts of “sabotage” and prompted an investigation.
For his part, al-Faleh confirmed that there were no injuries or fuel leaks from the attack, “while causing severe damage to the structures of the two vessels.” The minister added that one of the two vessels was on its way to “load the Saudi oil from the port of Ras Tanura, and then go to the United States to supply Saudi Aramco customers.”
The UAE Foreign Ministry considered that “exposing commercial ships to acts of sabotage and threatening the lives of their crews is a dangerous development.” The United Arab Emirates on Sunday called on the international community to “take on its responsibilities” to prevent “any parties trying to undermine the security and safety of maritime traffic and this is a threat to international security and safety.” The minister added that one of the two vessels was on its way to “load the Saudi oil from the port of Ras Tanura, and then go to the United States to supply Saudi Aramco customers.”
The port of Fujairah has a strategic location that allows the UAE to export oil without passing through the Strait of Hormuz, thus ensuring export movement in case of any regional tensions.
Iran has repeatedly threatened to close this strategic strait in the event of any military confrontation in the Gulf.
The incident comes in the waters of the UAE in the midst of a stage of rising tension between Iran and the United States. The United States has sent an attack ship and Patriot batteries to the Middle East to boost the capabilities of an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers previously sent to the Gulf region. This comes as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo travels to Brussels, where he discusses Iran’s file with French, British and German officials. Pompeo canceled his visit to Moscow, a US official said. In recent days, the US secretary of state has canceled visits to Berlin and Greenland to devote his efforts to the Iranian file.
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mugherini said on Monday the bloc fully supports the implementation of the international nuclear deal with Iran and wants rival powers to avoid any further escalation on the issue.
“We will continue to support him as much as we can by all means and with our political will,” Mugherini told reporters ahead of a meeting of foreign ministers from Britain, France and Germany.
Mugherini said she had learned last night that Pompeo arrived in Brussels, where EU foreign ministers are meeting for a monthly meeting.
“We will be here all day (to discuss) a busy agenda. So during the day we will see how and whether we will arrange a meeting. “Pompeo is clearly welcome, but there are no specific plans at the moment.”
European nations said last week they wanted to keep the Iranian nuclear deal and rejected Tehran’s “warnings” after the Islamic Republic trimmed its nuclear program commitments and threatened to take steps that could violate its agreement with world powers in 2015.
Iran’s move came in response to US sanctions. Imposed by Washington following the withdrawal of President Donald Trump from the nuclear agreement with Iran a year ago. The Bush administration has stepped up pressure on Iran, accusing it of preparing “imminent” attacks against US interests in the Middle East. The UAE is a leading member alongside Saudi Arabia in the military alliance supporting government forces in neighboring Yemen in its battles with the Huthis accused of receiving military support from Iran.
Oil futures rose on Monday as concerns over supply disruptions from the Middle East, which is important for crude production, surged. The rise was 0.5 percent.
Saudi Arabia and the UAE ranked first and third among the largest producers respectively in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).
“The rise in geopolitical tensions in the Middle East, coupled with the sharp drop in oil supplies from Venezuela and Iran, will continue to drive prices up,” said Abhishek Kumar, chief analyst at Interfax Energy in London. Markets are supported by Washington’s push to cut Iran’s oil exports to zero and reduce Venezuela’s exports, where infrastructure problems also cause production to fall. link
