    Nah, I don't think that Iran when they develop their nuke, could reach the US conventionally. But, being a terrorist nation state, they could develop a method to deliver a nuke to a US city through a homicide bomber. Although, also not likely in the immediate, the more plausible threat is to hold this nation hostage through regional destabilization, and threat to Israel.

    In any case it would not be a positive to adopt a blind eye, and just let Iran develop one. Sanctions may be an act of war, but they are the method used to avoid bloodshed. Problem is that they rarely work.

    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    1) Yes, that would be an act of war.

    2) Yes, not only would we be justified, we would have to do it. Hormuz is too critical to not just us, but the world.

    By the way, filming an aircraft carrier, especially in that area is not hard to do.

    I doubt we would invade Iran, we would just remove Iran's ability to block the straits.

    Iran is threatening to block the straits in retaliation for a potential US led embargo on Iranian oil.

    The largest portion of oil going through the straits is destined for China. They definitely do not want the straits blocked.

    I don't have children. Any other useless suggestions and name calling or are you all done now?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
