Stena Impero: Iran's bet on confiscation of a tanker will limit its credit rating – even among friends



When Tehran confiscated a foreign tanker that "violated international regulations," it resorted to a form of piracy in international waters.

At a time when Iran may have begun to make friends and influence people in the corridors of the world, it shows that it can indeed be the power of dangerous instability that its hottest enemies have claimed.

The United Kingdom, France, Germany, China and the European Union agree. They were appalled by US sanctions against a nation that, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency, had fulfilled its obligations under the agreement.

But clearly moderate voices in Tehran have been silenced. Javad Zarif, the foreign minister, can no longer enjoy a penitential understanding among his international counterparts when mocking the White House's "B team," a term that highlights the connections between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, national security adviser John, Bolton the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates when it comes to Iran policy.

When he started using the term, it was the Americans who broke treaties and international agreements on the environment and went beyond international norms and conventions. Now, Iran has joined a dive on the bottom of the barrel.

Sure, Iran was irritated by the seizure of its own oil tanker Grace I by the Gibraltarian and British authorities. But Britain and Iran had tried to find a way to release the tanker and keep the nuclear deal on track.

Now a British tanker is in the grip of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps after being seized in international waters.

Since there is no legitimate basis for such seizure, Iran commits an attack against a sovereign ship that could theoretically be responded to with an aggressive response.

  On the ship that knocked down a military drone, a small one mistake could trigger a war with Iran.

Iran, who has always complained that President Hassan Rouhani has exposed too much in the nuclear business, would want it. But it would put the Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf back into the uncertainty that cursed the region in the "tanker wars" of the 1980s during the bloody Iran-Iraq war.

In order to avoid a blood clot in one of the world's major arteries of oil supply, Britain and others may be willing to start negotiations. After all negotiations are best conducted when both sides have decent cards to play.

However, the Iranian regime will not recover from the idea that the nations that wanted to help it join the world community are truly a force of instability.

The Iranian government could even win this hand. But the game is very different now and voices in the US like Bolton, who wants to see a regime change in Tehran, are now heard in places they were recently avoided.
