You do know that's what would happen if ME oil was cut off from the rest of the world don't you?
Well, yes, so why would we want an attack on Iran that would provoke them into trying to close the Straits of Hormuz? Won’t an attack on Iran send the price of oil through the roof?
Why is everyone so keen on an action that will only cause disaster? Unless Iran is utterly obliterated, it will resume its quest to get a nuke. If people are so keen on starting another war, at least make this one effective, which won’t happen. I still say this is insane.
