Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have always looked upon the issue of the Straits of Hormuz as a wonderful bluff by iran. Basically if your response the the US destroying your nuclear weapons programme (or part thereof) is to fire a couple of missiles at random targets in the Hormuz then, tbh, you've already lost.

I would imagine that Iran, if it had any sense (debatable I know) would already have retaliatory capability in place within the USA for massive overwhelming counterstrike.

But i thought Iraq would do the same thing and they didn't.

keep to the Fen Causeway
