Now the Spanish are accusing the Americans of tricking the British into impounding an Iranian tanker

Well, they're not outright accusing the U.S., just pointing the finger of blame, which is as much an accusation. See Simon Tisdall's How Trump’s arch-hawk lured Britain into a dangerous trap to punish Iran: "With the seizure of a supertanker off Gibraltar, distracted UK government was set up by John Bolton as collateral damage." 

His piece is based in part on a news report in Spain's El Pais newspaper, which cited official sources. 

The British are of course complete victims in the mess, poor dears. [flipping a pen into the air] 

I can't take much more of this. I'm going on vacation. Goodbye.
