    Except he knows that mere sabre rattling wont get the US to invade. Like others have said, these people are not suicidal. They enjoy their power and they'd like to keep it, and they can't do that if they attack the United States.

    But the point here is that under international Law shipping can pass through the Straits of Hormuz there is an international area there!

    Therefore Iran is the only one beating the drums of war by breaking the Law and prohibiting or even warning vessels to cross.

    How is that different from preventing Iran from selling its oil?

    Its myopic to think that Iran will close the Straits which could easily and quickly be cleared.

    If Israel attacks Iran, Iran will blow up all the Saudi oil installations and take 10 million bpd off the market.

    This is just another example of that cowboy George Bush and his Gunboat Diplomacy....Ooops, thats right, Obama is president now, let me amend that.... This is just another example of Obama showing bold and decisive leadership in the face of international danger.

    But in the middle of it all is possible provocation or outright aggression from Israel. Netanyahu is a madman and it seems most Israelis don't support him, but that crazy bastard is dying to go to war with Iran. Saudi Arabia would tacitly approve or already has for all we know. We know that there is no love lost between Netanyahu and Obama. That's to Obama's credit. But to be honest I am not aware of any head of state in Europe that hearts Netanyahu. Netanyahu could tell everyone to kiss sweet **** all and push the button. We would be involved at that point even if involvement was seriously against our plans and desires.

    I'm suspicious of everything. I don't think Obama wants to go to war with Iran...so...will Iran "provoke an attack?" You know, one where we say they attacked us? What's that' called? A Black Flag operation? If he just decides to deploy U.S. troops, I think that would cost him the election...unless they "attacked" us first.

    My scheming little mind also tells me that the UN won't act...because Russia or China will veto any attempt at that. Then, my scheming little mind tells me that we'll be negotiating behind the scenes with both of these countries to get their approval to a UN force. Hang on to your wallets, taxpayers!! (Oops. Too late.)

    Absolutely I agree that it is myopic!

    Then Iran should stop the threatening

    I say to Iran : Shut up or put up with the consequences!
