Well, there is a lot of water in the world. They need to reflect on the idea that they can dominate the Gulf, but they arent even a bit player in the rest of the worlds oceans, as the Grace 1 fiasco and this one somewhat illustrates.

 

I suppose the most likely culpret is the Saudi's, it would be a nice payback for the attack on the oil refinery. Somewhat ballsy for them though.

The UAE is usually the puppet master and the place that handles the more subtle things the KSA is incapable of. MbS has nothing on MbZ.

Things just got a little more interesting now that the Saudis have realized they can hurt Iran and Iranians on their own. Planning for a return visit to downtown Ploesti may be in the works.
