It's nothing but piracy conducted by the US though the US justified the seizure because the IRGC, Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, designated by the US as a terrorist organization, shipped the fuel so under US "rules" it has the right to waylay the ships on the high seas.

It's just another example of the US exercising its own "rules" whenever it sees fit anytime, anywhere.

A nation can't ignore, reject international agreements it has signed then unilaterally impose sanctions it alone decides to exercise.

The fact is US actions in the world are seen more and more by other nations as those taken by a rogue nation, not a nation an integral part of the international community.

That's the sad truth of the matter-which apparently most people in the US fail to see or ignore.

Not so for others in the world particularly those facing the wrong end of a US weapon aimed directly at them. They know all too well the sinister nature of the US. That's the sad truth most people in the US don't want to see or care about what we're doing in the world.

Unless it's Americans getting killed in our wars they don't care. Even then... what wars?
