Iran's war games in Gulf of Hormuz
Iran is trying to show off it's Navy in maneuvers in the Gulf of Hormuz after
they said they would shut it down if it is attacked by Israel or the US.
They say they forced a foreign helicopter to leave the site of the maneuvers.
Now, let's face it. If there was going to be an attack on Iran's nuke
facilities it would have been BY now, especially since a month ago Iran said Israel would
attack it by Christmas. Well, Christmas has come and gone and the new year is almost here and
still no attack. There have been rumors since W's presidency.
And the reason he didn't was it would compound the problems with the
insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan, insurgents that come from Iran and
their friends. That is still a prob and why no attack.
But back to these maneuvers. Someone needs to remind Iran what happened
the last time they tried to close Hormuz. That was in 88 during its war
with Iarq and they mined the Hormuz and attacked a US ship with a
The US retaliated within mins sinking two Iranian frigates and a couple of
gun boats and rubber rafts, just about everything they had-lol. Well,
they are a little more sophisticated now so they think they can win.
Threatening to close the Hormuz would block oil that the rest of the
world gets going thru it to the Persian Gulf.
The Hormuz is only about 2,000 km long and 52 km wide at it's
Ted Koppel said years ago on Niteline that the Israel air force could
sink the entire Russian navy in the Mediterranian in less than 3 mins.
So think how long it will take us to sink Iran's navy in the Hormuz
and especially since it is so much smaller than the Med.
Just some laughable stuff here from Iran.
