The reality is that this man is right - anyone who knows anything and has been there will tell you - there is NO WAY to keep this open by force - closed yes, as it is VERY easy to hit a slow moving target closing off a 3 mile stretch - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    from land, air or sea - repeated attacks will almost certainly close the strait and there is nothing the US can do to stop it - it would have to occupy part of Iran, which is insane, but even that would work because long range missiles can strike the strait -just like it is impossible to stop terrorist attacks in Iraq, as the US demonstrated for a decade so too this is impossible. In addition, FORGET about anything positive happening in Iraq as there are MILLIONS of Iranians now in Iraq and the Shia of Iraq trust Iran FAR more than their sunni neighbors, notice that Saudi arabia STILL does not have an embassy there and there are no direct flights - 18 flights to Iran daily - in addition, Iran can destroy and send the US back 10 years in Afghanistan as well - everyone who is in the loop knows that any conflict with Iran will be a catastrophe not just for Iran but for the US too - in addition all of this will bring the US back to recession if not worst as the economy is already badly beater with almost 9% unemployment (double really) - and tell the guy in Ohio, California, or Virginia that they are not repoing his home or sorry you lost your job - that it will be worth it - especially in this already stressed climate - tell them that it was for the good of Israel (with an unemployment under 5% and received of billion dollar subsidies, much like a parasite killing its host) - THIS IS WHY THERE WILL NOT BE A CONFLICT AND IRAN WILL GET NUKES -just today the head of the mossad said that even if Iran gets nukes that its not a threat to Israel - slowing telling the people the truth - what is inevitable and what everyone in power already knows- this WILL happen but its not the end of the world but it will secure the Iran regime in power.
