'Must pay the price!' Commentator calls for 'direct' US-UK military action against Iran


Speaking to GB News, Nile Gardiner, director of the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, demanded immediate military reataliation against Iran for the drone attack which also killed a Romanian national. Iran have denied they were behind the attack but analysts are understood to have found the location that the attack was launched from. It comes as a-yet-unnamed British man was killed in the attack after a drone blasted a hole in the side of MC Mercer Street oil tanker 152 nautical miles off the coast of Oman on Thursday. A US Navy aircraft carrier was escorting the tanker at the time of the attack, they said early indications “clearly pointed” to a drone attack. 

Mr Gardiner said: “I think lady Lady Thatcher would have responded very strongly and robustly to this latest act of terror by the Iranian regime.

“You can’t just respond with tweets you have to respond with real force against the worlds biggest state sponsor of international terror/

“And this latest terror attack by Iran took the life of a British citizens.”

He slammed: “Iran must pay the price for that!”

He went on to argue a response is necessary to “deter future attacks” from happening before speculating of an “Israeli retaliation” in the wake of the “barbaric” drone attack. 

But in a shocking call, Mr Gardiner suggested: “We should also see us and British military action taken directly against iran and those responsible for this attack.

“If we don’t take this kind of action we are going to see many more attacks by Iran.

“We are going to see more loss of British life and that is unacceptable.”

Mr Raab said: “The UK condemns the unlawful and callous attack committed on a merchant vessel. We believe this attack was deliberate, targeted and a clear violation of international law by Iran. Our thoughts are with the friends and family of those killed.”

It comes as sources told the Daily Express a “kill or capture manhunt” could be put together by a coalition of UK and US special forces including the SAS, Special Boat Service and Parachute regiment to find those responsible for the atrocity.

It is understood British, Israeli and US intelligence services are aware of the location where the drone was launched from.

A former British military intelligence officer told the paper: “Special forces have been concerned about hostage-taking on the high seas for some time but are clearly going to take a more aggressive posture against Iran’s proxies.”
