No, it was explosives. And no, there isn't (as far as I know) any evidence it was Iran. But it's plausible it was Iran...VERY plausible. It was only a few miles from their coast, after all, and the ships targeted kind of point at likely suspects in and of themselves. Is it conclusive? Nope. Hell, it COULD actually be a false flag operation done by, say, Saudi, to try and bring us in all the way into a shooting war with Iran. But my own Occam's razor says that it probably was Iran, or an Iranian proxy, though we might not ever know definitively. Which is why I didn't mention it, and instead brought up their support of terrorist groups and proxies they support.
