State Dept refuse to honor treaty, Iran seizes ship in Straits of Hormuz


The Obama administration abandons another ally and treaty. This in the Straits of Hormuz. Any other President would find this a headliner. But news of Baltimore is on an endless tape of just one burning building so our President says. We now have capitulated to Iran. Kerry is windsurfing, or something like that.

Bloomberg View:

When asked if his country would request that the U.S. rescue the cargo ship from Iran, Junior Aini, the charge d’affairs for the Marshall Islands Embassy in Washington, told us he was still awaiting guidance from his foreign ministry. But he also suggested that his country had no other recourse than to hope the U.S. responds.

“The United States has the full security responsibility over the islands and for the defense of the islands, this is what our treaty says,” he told us. Aini was referring to a 1986 accord between the U.S. and the island nation that set the terms for independence. The Marshall Islands has no standing army. News that Iran had boarded the Maersk Tigris surprised Aini. He said he initially learned about the incidentfrom watching Fox News.

Aini also said his nation is barred by the 1986 agreement from doing anything that would challenge America’s role in this regard. “We cannot take any action that will impact the U.S. responsibility,” he said. Under a 1983 Compact of Free Association, the U.S. has “full authority and responsibility for security and defense of the Marshall Islands,” according to a State Department fact sheet.

      I know, and the story appears to have disappeared off the map. But then non stop rioting coverage no doubt instigated by the administration takes care of a multitude of news items.

    omg 😐

    It’s a Maersk ship, it was in Iranian waters. I used to work for the container lines. These things happen. I’m sure they’ll work it out.

    Treaties? We don’t need no stinkin’ treaties! Between this and Israel it is hard to see how any of our allies can trust us anymore, our word means nothing!

      No doubt the ship was full of military gear that will help out Iran. We wouldn’t want to stop that now would be. Watch the price of oil skyrocket.

        Bunkerville – I have not been able to keep up – is that a guess that the ship was full of military gear?
