go on waiting for those who see it differently....


To clarify things - the Straits of Hormuz are wholly within Iranian Territorrial waters.
So are the main shipping routes to the northern Arabian/Persian Gulf.
It would be akin to the Russian or Chinese navies sailing trough the waters between mainland California and the Catalina Islands.
Now that the USA involvement in Iraq is finished, there is no need to have the US navy in the Arabian/Persian Gulf at all.

Remember that scene from ID4 when they finally bring the force-field down and all those F-18s light-off missiles into the side of the ship?

Yup. Just like that. That's how a hundred little Iranian suicide boats running up on a Nimitz Class carrier would be.

It's the coastal anti-ship missile batteries that are the real threat.

I'm sure that the scene is not unlike a freighter being tailed by rowboats, and with the arsenal on our warships, we could not only send their navy back to allah, but most of their coast as well. They're taunting a dragon.


Be that as it may, they have the support of Russia and more anti-ship missiles than we have the capability to shoot down.

In case you didn't notice, Iran is not afraid of the USA.
