WW3 won't be official until nukes are launched. When all the countries are sweating their a**es off because of nuclear threat, we will be on the brink of WW3.

Until then, it's a bunch of kids shaking sticks at each other and shouting profanities.

The Abe Lincoln went through yesterday so I think they aren't keeping a very good eye on things or they are talking BS . Not that I really care they seem a bit too annoying

It takes more than a couple of days to close a waterway, especially with their level of military resource. They might be half-serious, and just taking their time to keep their word. After all, it seems just like them to say something, then procrastinate, watching how their threats are received and how they can use it to their advantage.

They don't have the fire power to back up their barking, so they use the threat itself, not the action, to get what they want. It's the best they can do...

We all know if we had to, we could level their whole country and still have enough left over to defend ourselves against retaliation.

Iran doesn't need to do a direct confrontation at the moment.

Lay a few mines over the Strait of Hormuz and that's it closed for 2-3 weeks until the mines are cleared.

Just 2-3 weeks of no Oil transported through the Strait will be enough to cripple many nations and have them screaming at the UN to repeal the sanctions on Iran.

Still lots of other alternatives..the Gulf States are Sunni minority led Shia majorities, uprisings are very likely imho.
