Maybe turning Tehran into a glass parking lot would capture their attention.

There is no such thing as a quick get away in an oil tanker though.

Iran better be prepared for a series of vicious, tersely worded statements.

Furthermore, a severe bombardment of legal filings and then the coup de grace....complaints filed with the UN.

It will be epic.

If Britain takes an Iranian oil tanker it's legal, but when Iran responds by taking a British oil tanker it is a hostile act. Got it.

You're right, certainly the Iranian media has presented the situation in a fair and impartial manner while British and US media has unfairly depicted the situation.

It's embargos. It's economic warfare.

There are no "good guys".
