    Sure, these two clowns can joke all they want. But I wonder if they realize that the US has decided that Tehran can't be a major oil exporter... and a nuclear power at the same time. Tehran must chose one or the other... but not both. This is a geo-strategic model that Obama won't say publicly. But anyone with a grain of understanding can see how this game is being played. And believe me, the Ayatollahs have gotten the message. The fact that Tehran threatens to close the Straits of Hormuz... proves they know what's at stake. But the question remains... what will the Clerics of Qom do. Can they create a 'military Armageddon'... and do they have the muscle to confront major world powers. Sure, talk is cheap... and for internal consumption bravado can seem heroic at times. But imagine what China, India or Turkey would do... once their oil spigot gets turned off.
