EDITORIAL:         WHO REALLY ATTACKED TANKERS IN HORMUZ STRAIT?

The U.S. government and Iran are trading accusations over the source of the explosions that have been damaging tankers around Hormuz, leaving one of them burning as its crew was rescued by the U.S. Navy. The Japanese owner of one of the ships said that his sailors told a story that differed from the U.S. news release. Who to believe, these days?

More significant perhaps, is the fact that today’s major munitions, even nukes, can obviously now be delivered anonymously so easily. What sort of world is that leading to, do you suppose?
