Tension Builds In The Strait Of Hormuz

With the Keystone Pipeline in place, we would need not worry about this type of insanity.

Hey folks,

So on Tuesday, Iran threatened to close down the Strait of Hormuz. It is the strip of water separating Oman and Iran, which connects the biggest Gulf Oil Producers, including Saudi Arabia, with the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea. This is where we, and many others around the World get a big portion of the supply for our Energy Needs.

On Tuesday, Iran said if Obama and Crew, America, and some of the rest of the World even think of imposing tougher Sanctions on Iran, or interfere in any way in their Nuclear Program, they would Shut the Strait of Hormuz down and STOP any flow of Oil from going through. They said Closing it down would not be difficult,,,,

"it will be easier than drinking a glass of water,"
Now to assure Americans and our Allies around the world, WE are starting to talk tough. According to Reuters - U.S. Fifth Fleet says won't allow Hormuz disruption by Parisa Hafezi and Myra MacDonald; Editing by Alison Williams

(Reuters) - The U.S. Fifth Fleet said on Wednesday it would not allow any disruption of traffic in the Strait of Hormuz, after Iran threatened to stop ships moving through the world's most important oil route.

"Anyone who threatens to disrupt freedom of navigation in an international strait is clearly outside the community of nations; any disruption will not be tolerated," the Bahrain-based fleet said in an e-mail.
So how will we stop them if they try? There is only one way. Attack the Iranian Ships. Right? Use FORCE against FORCE. Do you think that they will just go home? Nope. They will use Force and CLAIM Self Defense. Ship to Ship has the potential to turn out to be a full Fledged War.

Now many feel that this is not a REAL Threat.

A British Foreign Office spokesman called the Iranian threat

"rhetoric," saying: "Iranian politicians regularly use this type of rhetoric to distract attention from the real issue, which is the nature of their nuclear program."
Which is TRUE, however, have you seen the Price of Gas? That's right, just based on this new Threat, Oil hit $100 a Barrel and has the potential of climbing higher, which means, the Price at the Pump, which has been pretty reasonable lately, will start to go up as well. So even though Iran is no match for the US Fifth Fleet, even a few day or Weeks disruption will cause havoc on American People who are already hurting financially and will feel the sting at the pump if it goes up to $4 plus again.

Meanwhile, Iran continues it's Nuclear Quest and WILL achieve their goal if allowed to do so. They WILL Bomb Israel, and they WILL attack US. They said so. That has been a goal of Little Hitler {President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad} for YEARS. To "Wipe Israel of the Map." Israel is not going to wait too much longer.

As I keep pointing out to you. When Bush said, "We WILL Drill more here. We WILL use our own resources." The Price of Oil PLUMMETED. It fell like a ROCK. Just the mere mention of this. When Obama said, "No we won't." Threaten to bankrupt the Coal Industry, announced Cap and Tax, put a Moratorium in place, then a de facto Moratorium, and started to attack ANYTHING Oil, the Price SKYROCKETED again. If we only had started ACTUALLY doing it back when Bush SAID, we would be flowing with our OWN Oil right now. Then with the Keystone Pipeline, that Obama is blocking, we would create Tens if not Hundreds of THOUSANDS of Jobs, Lower Prices, and INCREASE National Security. We would be getting 92 percent of our Liquid Energy Needs from RIGHT HERE and our friends in the North. NOT from these Countries that HATE us.

Forget the Jobs. Forget the cost of Oil. It would be real easy for Iran, or ANYONE, to cripple the US by shutting down the Oil Routes. It would be hard to fight a War with no Fuel for the Ships and Planes. Just for the National Security Aspect of it, we NEED the Keystone Pipeline and we NEED to use our own resources.

Yet, here we are, playing War games with Iran in the Strait Of Hormuz. Russia is up to it's old tricks and Putin is on his way back to the Presidency, China is a bit uppity over our Debt, and NO ONE knows what to expect of North Korea. The Islamofascists have all but taken over the Middle East, with help FROM Obama, and Obama just opened the Door for Little Hitler himself to walk right into Iraq. Meanwhile, thanks to Obama and Crew, we are STILL reliant on Foreign Governments, most of which HATER us, for our Energy Supply Needs. For someone that is suppose to be the most Brilliant Person to ever hold Office, still no proof of this whatsoever, this should not be hard to understand. It's NOT Brain Surgery. The World is getting more Dangerous, and WE are doing NOTHING to protect ourselves. It is time for a CHANGE.
