"The Iranian oil tanker Adrian Darya 1, blacklisted by Washington, has arrived in the Syrian port of Tartus, US national security advisor John Bolton said.

"Anyone who said the Adrian Darya-1 wasn't headed to Syria is in denial," Mr Bolton said in a tweet with a satellite image he said showed the ship anchored two nautical miles off Tartus".

Gotta love this stupid comment from am unnamed, dimwit news writer for RTE:

"However there was no confirmation that the ship, carrying 2.1 million barrels of oil worth around $140 USDm, was unloading its cargo".

Yea, I'm sure it's there just for sightseeing purposes, and perhaps because Tartus is known to serve the best fish and chips in the Mediterranean Sea.


"The Middle East Eye news site said the tanker had delivered oil to Syria, with one source quoted saying 55% of its cargo was offloaded Thursday night".

Note an included satellite photo with the article shows the tanker approximately 2 miles off Tartus, so I imagine the Iranians will claim the vessel is not actually "in the port" of Tartus.

Hmmm, something smells fishy, and it's not unrefrigerated, two-day old fish and chips.
