Arrow Persian gulf Showdown approaching

Iran keeps claimg it can 'control and shutdown' the straight of hormuz connecting the gulf to the open seas of the indian ocean, the US navy warned today that they better not try it.



Somehow the crappy Iranian Navy seems to be somewhat over matched.

I'm sure Ron paul will be along to tell us how its none of our business, and we will laugh at him as teh the founders established the concept of freedom of the seas.

Empty flapping from a nutjob puppet regime. They must keep appearances up as despotism begins to crumble all around them.

The iranians don't understand that we don't need to 'invade' them to control them.

Their wealth is entirely dependant on shipping, and we control the seas, and the means to travel on them.

A naval war will have no suicide bombers, no IEDs, no civil casulties, it will have lots of expensive Iranian junk littering the bottom of the ocean.
