Dubai Police Chief and Indian Ambassador Say Boat Showed No Danger to US Navy
(Ezra Van Auken) After an incident on the coast of Dubai this past Monday, the United States noted that warnings were given before the fishing boat was shot at, as the vessel approached. Due to miscommunication one fisherman died and three others remain critically wounded. However, on Tuesday a fisher aboard the boat gunned down by US officials has explained that no warnings were given.
Indian Ambassador M.K. Lokesh explained to the AP, “He says there was no warning” referring to one of three surviving fishermen. Despite resistance from the West, Dubai’s police chief also commented on the issue “the boat was in its right course and did not pose any danger,” in an Abu-Dhabi based daily, The National.
During a Khaleej Times daily report, General Khalfan pointed out, “The crew … told the Dubai police that they did not move towards the ship and instead attempted to avoid it.” Clearly showing strong opposition against the United States version of the events that took place Monday.
United States forces were traveling through the region because of rising tensions with Iran, which led to increase of military at the Strait of Hormuz. Judging by the events that occurred Monday could be a clue about what is going to happen in Iran during wartime.
Just recently, the United States deployed underwater drones throughout the Persian Gulf to scan for explosives. This has continued to inflate another problem, the native humans who are opposed to foreign government occupying their land and want nothing to do with war.
