America is deploying an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers
I can't help but think of the Falklands line. "If that's the size of their bombers, how big is their carrier?"

What 4 of them ?

Must have been a very small fast heavy tiny boat to do that much damage in such a small spot .
The yanks may be getting worse!

Saudi Arabia says its oil tankers among those hit off UAE coast - Reuters
Reuters saying KSA have admitted two of the four tankers belonged to them. Norway says one was theirs:
Saudi Arabia said on Monday that two of its oil tankers were among those attacked off the coast of the United Arab Emirates and described it as an attempt to undermine the security of crude supplies amid tensions between the United States and Iran.

The UAE said on Sunday that four commercial vessels were sabotaged near Fujairah emirate, one of the world’s largest bunkering hubs lying just outside the Strait of Hormuz. It did not describe the nature of the attack or say who was behind it.
The fourth appears to be UAE flagged:
The UAE had not given the nationalities or other details about the ownership of the four vessels. Riyadh identified two of them as Saudi and a Norwegian company said it owned another. Reuters images showed the fourth vessel was the UAE-flagged A. Michel, a fuel bunker barge.

Just seen a US TV 'breaking news' where UAE apparently now saying evidence of a rocket or missile attack, though can't find anything on t'intertnet. All of which contradicts:

'A U.S. official in Washington, without offering any evidence, told The Associated Press that an American military team’s initial assessment indicated Iran or Iranian allies used explosives to blow holes in the ships, including two Saudi, one Norwegian and one Emirati oil tanker. The official, who was not authorized to discuss the investigation, agreed to reveal the findings only if not quoted by name. The U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet, which patrols the Mideast and operates from a base in Fujairah, has repeatedly declined to comment on the incident.'

ETA: possibly related link. Houthis spreading their wings from Yemen?

'A television station run by Yemen's Houthi rebels said on Tuesday the Iran-aligned group had launched drone attacks on Saudi installations, without identifying the targets or time of the attacks.'
