By as early as the evening on Saturday or Sunday morning it's expected that the first among the five Iranian tankers transporting fuel to gasoline-starved Venezuela will enter the Latin American country's coastal waters.

Maduro officials have issued an emergency notice to the United Nations of an illegal "threat of imminent use of military force by the United States."

And with Washington threatening to block what it deems "sanctions-busting" by two "rogue states" - both under severe sanctions - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has issued his own last minute warning.

Today we alerted the UN Security Council and Secretary General Antonio Guterres of the threat of imminent use of military force by the United States against Iranian vessels carrying Venezuelan-directed gasoline. An act of war under international law.

See here: pic.twitter.com/jyp8kqQZsQ — Samuel Moncada (@SMoncada_eng) May 22, 2020 “If our tankers in the Caribbean or anywhere in the world face trouble caused by the Americans, they [the United States] will also be in trouble,” Rouhani told the Emir of Qatar in a phone call, Tasnim News reported.

The Maduro government said days ago that it would send a military escort in the form of planes and ships once the tankers enter Venezuela's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), or within 200 miles of the coast.

Rouhani expressed hope there wouldn't be a showdown or conflict, however, amid prior reports of a Trump-ordered US 'naval build-up' in the Caribbean, in part to crackdown on what the administration has referred to Maduro's narcotrafficking operations in the region. The Iranian oil tanker Clavel headed through the Strait of Gibraltar earlier this month, via AP. “We hope the Americans will not make a mistake,” Rouhani stressed further to Qatar’s head of state, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. Iran previously warned that any US attempt

Oh heck, this is why President Trump issued the statement about Iranian harassment of our ships - in the middle east.

We warned them, in a blanket statement to not harass our ships. The prize was hidden in the coast off of Venezuela.

3d chess again!

How about 50 man Seal Teams boarding ALL Iranian ships....now THAT sounds doable!

If they truly are transporting refined gasoline, the ships are already bombs.
And accidents do happen.
Plausible deniability ring a bell?

What the hell happened to their refineries???
I know they used to refine their own oil for local consumption,
that's how they had the cheapest gasoline in the entire world.

Bad management and corruption at the refineries. Also, all of the Venezuelan engineers that knew what they were doing left for greener pastures in the early 2000's.

Let'm have it, they can't afford to pay Iran for the gas and Venezuela produces nothing that they can barter with, what're they gonna do, send the tankers back stuffed full of Venezuelan printed money?
We could still seize the ships if they to leave, pretty sure whatever thye are carrying out of venezuela would be contraband.

The point is when you make threats and then pussy out like obama did,
who the frick will listen when he tells china to stop abusing & invading their neighbors!!!
If I was china I would take every island out there,
obviously PRESIDENT Trump won't do jack except 1 tiny ass FFG cruises past Taiwan!!!!!

When rocket man lobbed a missile over Japanese airspace, our best Allie in the area,
he should have secretly had South Korea flatten every base in the north immediately.

If everyone is so worried he might lob a nuke on someone, time to eliminate that ability!!!
Japan & the South can buy what ever the hell they want and we'll help them flatten the fat boy!!!

With all the satellites we have sitting on top of the Peninsula, you mean to tell me we can't take out one fat imbecile!!!!
It's 2020, geesh you would think we had a "rods from heaven" satellite sitting directly over fat boy favorite mansion!!!

Iran is trading for Venezuelan gold.
