You have basically summed up how I feel about this. Star for you, also, judging by the way you spelled arse, you are a fellow British citizen.

So you are basically saying they cant stand up for themselves? The west are trying to bully them and they are not having it. If the West want to play this game with them, they are saying they can play just as dirty. Or would you just be happy to let them bend over and get shafted up the arse?
As I said in another thread, this world is run by bullies for bullies.
I am not taking sides in this - the Iranian regime is just as dirty as the west. I do not support any religion, government or corporation. They are all as bad as each other.edit on 27-12-2011 by Firefly_ because: (no reason given)

There are currently 4 countries with declared weapons outside the NPT and not much happened to them. One country left the NPT and that was North Korea. They got the bomb, of sorts anyway and were already sanctioned to the hilt for many other reasons.

I'd give it a week max before the complete destruction of the Iranian Navy if they close it down. This could actually play right into the hands of the American war machine.

Iran warns oil blockade if sanctions imposed
(visit the link for the full news article)
No oil will be permitted to pass through key oil Strait of Hormuz if West applies sanctions on Iran.
The warning came from Iranian Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi on Tuesday.
The threat was reported by the state news agency IRNA as Iran conducted navy wargames near the Strait of Hormuz, at the entrance of the oil-rich Gulf."If sanctions are adopted against Iranian oil, not a drop of oil will pass through the Strait of Hormuz," Rahimi was quoted as saying.
