But let us see an actual quote of the ayatollah or anyone else in the Iranian government saying such things. In the end, if they are as "crazy" as many on this board like to suggest, supposing their alleged nuclear program is advanced beyond our knowledge, suppose they shoved a nuke up our ass. The whole point is, why let things escalate to this level of rhetoric over "suggestive evidence"?
    I think I said I was skeptical.

    I wonder why NATO isn't more involved in Syria?
    What NATO nation has Syria attacked or threatened to attack? Plus I hope they have smartened up and learned from the disasters they have created when they did their "cheap" air wars that had little to do with their charter to begin with.

Shutting down the straights for no more than a few days would drastically impact the world economy and cause greivous harm to every single enemy of Iran.
    They have oil, but no refineries. When they shut down the Straits, they shut down their own supply of gasoline and every other product broken from crude.
