Iran 'definitely' closing Strait of Hormuz over EU oil embargo


rt.com

Tensions in the Gulf could reach a breaking point as a senior Iranian official said Iran would “definitely” close the Strait of Hormuz if an EU oil embargo disrupted the export of crude oil, the semi-official Fars news agency reports.

The announcement came in response to a decision by the European Union on Monday to impose an oil embargo on Iran over the country’s alleged nuclear weapons program.

I know most people don't find RT.com to be the greatest source, but in today's world Russian sources would be more reliable seeing as how they have more of a "Friendship" with Iran and are in direct talks (Seeing how Russia supplies them with Nuclear resources and man-power).

Can anyone confirm how many US Naval Fleets are in the region? I believe atleast 3 with 2 US ACC's.
