"We didnt starve out or kill anyone with sanctions. The government of Iraq did that. "

I call BS and BS big time on that statement.

I agree that we didn't kill or starve anyone with sanctions. I think its BS as well when people try to make that claim.

All Iran really has to do is dump a bunch of mines into the strait.

it would totally disrupt shipping without them having to do much of anything with their military other than duck and cover.


We could remove all of the mines or just send the US Navy seals out there to blow them up.

Once it looks clear, we could put an old and empty oil tanker out front. If we missed
a mine, let the old tanker take the hit and then keep going.


We escorted the Kuwaiti tankers back in the 1980s. Remember?

What if Saudi Arabida decides it wont allow Iran to close the Straight? What if Russia or China, who is extremely dependent on oil for their economy, says IRan cant close the straight.

If they move military hardware into the area are the same people who bitch about the US doing it going to do the same if Russia and China do it?

While on outward appearance it looks like Russia and China support Iran, remember all politics are local. If Iran pulls a stunt that results in collateral damage to the Russian or Chinese economies, do you think Russia and China are simply going to ignore it and hope for the best? They have people they answer to at home, and particularity China, are vulnerable to the masses when there is no work, food or gas because Iran wants to get all Hanz and Franz in the straights of Hormuz while pulling the jets and the sharks routine with the US.

Even a sibling / parent / guardian will knock the crap out of one of their own family members if the actions are interfering to much in their own affairs IE I dont care if you crap in the neighbors yard because I dont care for them much either, but when your actions drag me into a larger fight, we have issues.

Its like the group of school kids egging the fight on, up to the point their boy starts to lose, and in the process gets dragged into the fight by the one the pushed into it in the first place. China and Russia have pushed this Issue, and have pushed Iran in the process. We are coming to the point now where Pinocchio (Iran) thinks he is a man, and Russia and China are realizing the strings are no longer connected.
