strait of hormuz
Iran is threatening to shut down the Strait of Hormuz, if Britain, Germany and France decides to, in shorter terms, quit taking their shit (Iran's oil) because of their failure of compliance on Iran's nuclear program. So.. if that happens, Iran is threatening to shut down this water way (strait of hormuz) which a lot of oil goes through this "street of water", basically. Well, military leaders have decided this will not be tolerated. Where do you think this is going?!

They can try, but U.S. naval forces could sink Iran's entire navy without breaking a sweat. It's probably some calculated bravado on Iran's part - to what end is never clear.

RE: strait of hormuz
Its a pretty mashed up situation

Quote:TEHRAN: Iran on Monday tested missiles near the Strait of Hormuz, underlining its threats to close the vital oil-transit waterway as the West prepares to impose more economic sanctions over Tehran's nuclear drive.

The launch of two missiles took place on the final day of war games in waters east of the strait at the entrance to the Gulf, a navy spokesman, Commodore Mahmoud Mousavi, was quoted as saying by official media.

France said the tests were regrettable and stressed to Tehran the Strait of Hormuz must remain open. "We regret the very bad signal sent to the international community by the latest missile tests announced by Iran," French foreign ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said in Paris, reminding Tehran of the "freedom of navigation in straits and the need to maintain a favourable climate in respect to this freedom" . The longest range of missiles was 200km.

The west isnt going to back down from its sanctions and I dont think Iran will either. Russia has been building these nuclear facilities for Iran but I dont think they will defend them if it came to it....they may be a bit pissed off if the UN bomb it and kill russian civilian workers, further increasing tensions after russia disagreed over the "missle shield" in europe.

Its gonna get messy Confused

If Iran close the the strait of Hormuz, they will actually impose a sanction on themselves- since oil is their only income. I love it when they threaten to burry themselves TongueP

3 although this forum due to its nature its inclined to free thinking, it seem that is true only for religion, in other themes i find the same fundamentalism and ignorance of churches and faiths

I would venture to say that the majority of people here don't hate Iran or the Iranian people.
However, I despise what the government does and is, many people fear what that government has done and may do.
We are not, in general, ignorant of different faiths.

RE: strait of hormuz
I do hear the drums for war my friends. This is not good for anyone. It is a no win for the real people and the governments play games with the lives of our people like we are expendable. That is done with the people of Iran too.

I just want to teabag their president. The people are as cool as any I suppose. They need to separate religion from education though IMO. Stop teaching Sharia and jihad in public school.
