A senior Russian official on Thursday warned against “hasty conclusions” over the tanker incident in the Gulf of Oman or blaming the suspected attacks on Iran, Russian state-run news agency RIA-Novosti reported.
"I would use this opportunity to warn against hasty conclusions, from any attempts to impose responsibility on those who are seen as undesirable,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters after a meeting of the State Duma’s international affairs committee, RIA-Novosti reported.
Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov echoed the statement, saying it was premature to draw conclusions about the cause of the incident.'


us navy is responding to the 2 of the distress calls.....

UN Security Council will meet about the attacks at 4 p.m. ET
From CNN's Richard Roth
The United Nations Security Council is expected to discuss the attack on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman, three diplomatic sources tell CNN. That meeting will be held at 4 p.m. ET.
“If there is something the world cannot afford, it is a major confrontation in the Gulf region,” United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the Security Council in a meeting earlier in the day.
Jonathan Cohen, the US Deputy Ambassador to the UN, said the attacks are "unacceptable."


here we go, folks.

Japan less tolerant? What have they used for force lately ? They call Trump when Rocketman shoots missiles their way. Trump is less tolerant than others in DC and lots of others running other countries.
