Iran is the only country that has threatened shipping in the area where tankers were attacked

Washington Post:
Pompeo says there is more evidence that Iran attacked tankers

Despite skepticism from U.S. allies and Democrats, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said U.S. intelligence provided “unmistakable” evidence of Iranian culpability.

The Saudi crown prince called on the international community to take a “decisive stance” against what he called Iranian expansionism.
It is hard to understand the skepticism.   Iran is the only country that has threatened shipping in the area and it is also the only country whose boats were in the area where the mines were released.  It is the only country whose boats were recorded to be seen retrieving the evidence of the mine attacks.  I suspect the Posts skepticism is related to its obvious animus toward the President and his policies.

Iran is also the only country that has been trying to shoot down US drones in the area:


The MQ-9 drone had observed the Norwegian Front Altair on fire with 23 mariners on board on Thursday before they were taken to Iran and released to the United Arab Emirates on Saturday.
