Failing Occam's Razor
June 14, 2019
The report throws around a number of unsubstantiated claims which are eerily similar to what lead up to the Tonkin Resolution but it fails to point out that there would is absolutely no reason for Iran to do what is claimed, none ! That makes the whole article suspect.

National Bias
June 14, 2019
This article has a national bias in favor of the U.S. in regards to this incident. It assumes that the Trump Administration and Mike Pompeo have no outside interest in a military conflict with Iran. To me, this is yet another clear case where no evidence has been provided to suggest that Iran was at fault, and like the invasion of Iraq, this is being used as an excuse for more military conquest abroad by high ranking U.S. military officials. The reason I don't trust this article is that the author should have been much more clear, cautious, and questioning of the U.S. narrative since no evidence has been provided. It's important for journalists not to simply parrot the Administration's official narrative without question.

The Guardian is only reporting what other people have said about these events, and they're not proposing their own theory about what happened. Yet people here want to blame The Guardian for what people in the government, Navy, or whoever are saying. So far, no rater here has presented evidence that The Guardian is making any part of this story up. Even if you mistrust The Guardian, you're not helping anyone here unless you can show what's actually wrong with their story.

Great Context

I am not reviewing whether the claims that subjects of the article have made are truthful or not. I am reviewing the article itself, which has accurately laid out the claims in the case.

The owner of the Japanese ship debunked this nonsense.

I feel that the other untrustworthy reviews are a reflection of the distrust of the Trump administration, not this article. This article accurately reports the claims of the administration.

What has happened to the Guardian? What was once a proud, progressive newspaper has turned into a stenographer for Downing Street and the WH. From support for regime change wars to misrepresenting the massive strikes in Brazil, they have really thrown any journalistic standards in the bin.

The Guardian, a completely propagandistic tool, uses Pompeo, who publicly boasts of telling lies as central to his occupation, throws out another useless (except for the warmongers) bit of junk for the remaining public that still bothers to read their stuff. Total waste of time.

Only Sheeple who still think kerosene melts steel and titanium engines evaporate but passports are indestructible will buy pinning this obvious false flag on Iran. See also the YouTube comments: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Gz08OQUnms
