    Dear America:

    We in the government know we haven't been living up to your expectations. We know we've let you down a few times. Well we're going to make it better. We've been doing a lot of thinking and we're ready to make some changes if you'll meet us halfway. We even got you a present.

    WAR

    The Obama administration is relying on a secret channel of communication to warn Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, that closing the Strait of Hormuz is a “red line” that would provoke an American response, according to United States government officials.

    Yeah, tensions are all Iran's fault. I not like we've done anything to provoke them, like assassinations, sponsoring anti-govt terrorist organizations inside Iran, hold war games off their coast, violate their airspace with drones, etc..

    Yea, I was thinking about the Russians, but I doubt if Iran does something stupid like trying to block that pass and NATO gets involved, I don't see Russia or China backing up Iran.

    They have every right to shoot down our drones. War games in international water? They can't say shit.

    I think you're right. Let's hope so, anyway. I can't help thinking that this sort of thing will cause the next global war, though :(

    The world is about 70% water, yet the US insists on holding war games off the Iranian coast. Nah, we're not being provocative. Not us. Never. -wink-wink-

    Sadly, this stretch of water is crucial for oil supplies. No wonder we protect free passage through it.

    Well we helped invent the original. But sequels usually suck. Once Iran gets their nuke tech all this dick waving will stop with a wretched quickness.

    The only reason Iran is even considering closing the straight is because the US is going out of it's way to provoke a confrontation.
