Default Iran Claims Itís Taken Full Control of Gulf and Strait of Hormuz

A top general claimed Monday that Iranís navy has taken full control of the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuzóa major oil shipping route that Iranian officials have previously threatened to block in retaliation for any hostile U.S. action. The head of Iranís Revolutionary Guards navy, Gen. Alireza Tangsiri, made the claim, according to the Tasnim news agency, and declared that the U.S. does not belong in the regionís waters. ďWe can ensure the security of the Persian Gulf and there is no need for the presence of aliens like the U.S. and the countries whose home is not in here,Ē Tangsiri is quoted as saying by the news service. Relations between Iran and the U.S. have degenerated since President Donald Trump pulled out of a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers and reimposed economic sanctions that aim to cut off Iranís oil shipments. Iranís Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the most senior authority in the Islamic Republic, said last month that he supports the idea that if Iran is not allowed to export oil then no country in the region will be allowed to export oil from the Gulf.

What should our position on this be in your view?

I'm curious to see what the Navy has to say about that.

My position is that this is the inevitable result of attempting to appease those who don't like you.

Now? Put our vessels in the Gulf as escorts and with orders to fire if necessary. Iran is not going to take us on.

While we're at it, lets get our 200 billion back. In sand if necessary.

How about if we give them two choices.
1) Open the strait.
2) Failure to open the strait results in the USA dropping nuclear bombs on Tehran, Mashhad and Isfahan. Also, we may just just drop bombs on your allies.
Time to stop F-ing around.
