This was the most easy to avoid confrontation ever, and now look, Israel might get blown up and the gulf is on lock down.
Bush and Rumsfeld knew exactly what the outcome would be when they mandated that our troops put boots on the ground in Iraq. Thatís what my reference was about. And all the Bible thumpers in the world canít change that reality.
Iran has the straight and in the old forum I went into this geography issue in-depth, so try taking your head out of your ass and actually discussing the issue of the thread.
Their position in the Gulf is the only thing that makes them even half-way important and Iran is playing this to the hilt of their sabres. Israel is our excuse, the oil the Iranians have is another minor issue, but the Strait is key.
Now try being adult and discussing why we really care about Iran.
