A UAE tanker has gone missing after entering the Strait of Hormuz. Naturally, due to the Strait’s geographical position, Iran is the preferred suspect for the Trump Administration. The UAE Tanker turned off its transponder Saturday night and suspicions have currently reached their height.
President Donald Trump has placed himself in a situation that he cannot easily pull out. His strongman persona is under threat by his response to Iran’s decision to down a US drone. While Trump made the correct decision, the situation with Iran demonstrated weakness and indecision. The combination of tough talk and his hawkish advisers led the US towards a war no one wants.
