More Congratulations to Iranians

by fozolie

News that the National Iranian Tanker Company is busy renaming and re-flagging its tanker fleet (recently most of their fleet was parked idle in  Kharg so the Ship Masters were instructed to switch off their GPS tracking systems) should raise two questions in your mind: (1) How fucked up (pardon my French) are we as a nation that we have to suffer the same incompetence, cost, and idiocy over and over again (who appointed us as the righteous defender of the 'rights' of independent nations to the detriment of our self interest?), but more importantly with this regime it should raise this very important question as well: (2) How much will they embezzle using this "opportunity"?

Unlike the cargo market the tanker market is much smaller, highly scrutinized (because of the environmental risk) and each vessel's history is well known. So what they are thinking this will achieve is beyond me except for (2) above.
