Iran attacks ...... Romania?

Where do you place this?
Iran attacked and seized control of a Romanian oil rig working in its Persian Gulf waters this morning one week after the Iranian government accused the European drilling company of ``hijacking'' another rig.

An Iranian naval vessel fired on the rig owned by Romania's Grup Servicii Petroliere (GSP) in the Salman field and took control of its radio room at about 7:00 a.m. local time, Lulu Tabanesku, Grup's representative in the United Arab Emirates said in a phone interview from Dubai today.

``The Iranians fired at the rig's crane with machine guns,'' Tabanesku said. ``They are in control now and we can't contact the rig.'' The Romanian company has 26 workers on the platform, he said.
1 -- Act of war.
2 -- Act of piracy.
3 -- Police action.
4 -- Everyone wants to ignore it. Kind of like the Sudetenland.

Using some little info I can get, here is where the Salman Field is located.

With the midline approach, looks like Iranian waters...but...

Eagle1, give it a shot. Looks domestic to me, with wiggle room to make trouble.

Like an old boss like to say, "Get me the d@mn JAG..."
