Pakistan and Iran are different countries. That means they are, *gasp*, different. We handle the situation in each case differently. This is not complicated. Any essentially unstable or inimical country with nukes or working towards nukes is a potential thread, be they Iran, Pakistan, China, Russia, Israel, India, North Korea. We treat those countries all differently, which, considering they are different, is appropriate.
Many of us agree that Iran has zero intention of blocking the Straits. The question posed though was "what if they did attempt to block them". The call for military action would be widespread.

Anyway, if it they go through with it and we can't replace it, than well, that is that. Prices will go up and the market will deal with it. Still not seeing a warrant in action.

If filming a carrier is enough for a stand-off, all Iran needs is a few camcorders and they can hold out for years!
