Iranian Oil Tanker Could Be About To Explode

Here we go ... I can only imagine how the various powers that be will latch on to this one and start spinning it. Will we start hearing stories like the tanker was going to illicitly supply North Korea with crude ... or from the other side, the Saudis caused the collision somehow?

Any news on this? I don't see any change other than that one body has apparently been recovered and it's still burning ...

Perhaps in good taste it really shouldn't be compared to exxon valdez. Killing bald eagles and sea otters isn't really the same as 32 people dying.

Oh, outlets are giving only a snippet of space to the dead, focusing instead of the environmental damage. Nice perspective.

seems like the oil slick is bigger than previously reported, according to this report, anyway. Looks now like it is over 45 square miles.
