The Iranian regime's seizure of yet another oil tanker while passing through international waters, reinforcing its blatant aggression in the region, is further evidence that it is time to end the appeasement of Iran. This latest destabilizing incident should be a wake-up call for the US to finally resume seizing Iranian oil and gas shipments to safeguard global energy markets and the international community.
The seizure of a cargo ship by the Iranian Navy is the latest escalation between Washington and Tehran. Both countries should reaffirm their support for international maritime law and stop these seizures and confiscation of cargo on the high seas. It's time to reaffirm global maritime norms over more narrow geopolitical interests. The US has an obligation to act more responsibly here in addition to Iran.
There's a 4% chance that the US will rejoin the Iran Nuclear Deal by 2024, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
