    Sounds like a job for the Coast Guard... no need to bother the Navy.


    Or maybe just a few cabin cruisers full of armed rednecks...

    Honestly, this has got to be more about internal Iranian politics than any interest in actually stirring the pot.

    Our armed rednecks are probably more dangerous than their Elite Special Forces.

    I'm sure the ATF keeps tabs on certain hillbilly militia's and their armories.

    best thing we can do is replace oil. then we would have to give zero ****s about Iran, even if they pulled the battleships into a California marina to stop for lunch.

    Saudi Arabia is the regional hegemon. let them deal with Iran. if Mexico went rogue, you can bet your ass SA wouldn't lift a finger to help. it would be on us to deal with it.

    They're trying to replace oil but the infrastructure and sales of items (electric/ hybrid cars) doesn't happen over night. In the meantime fracking, tar sands and oil shale are being extracted continentally to replace some of the imports.

    We're afraid that once we hand off to the Saudi's that any decision they make in the region, will be out of our control. Our government are a bunch of power hungry, control freaks. Though they have kind of let Mexico, go to hell with the drug cartels. They're more powerful than the Colombians were during the coke days of the 80's-90's and more vicious.

    Capture the ships and tell Iran it can have its boats back when it destroys the centrifuges.

    We're all about narional security, too.

    One day, the Iranians are going to park a missile boat a hundred miles off shorewith a couple nukes onboard. Then what?

    Would be nice if that drought affecting California would go to Mexico and destroy the source of the cartels income
