US SECDEF says we don’t think Iran is trying to make nuclear weapons.
But Iran controls the straits until their fleet is blown up
at which point China jumps in
and oil skyrockets
and the globe sinks deeper into depression.
The timing of this will let you know just how it works. If Iran is looking mighty next war-ish and Obama takes a bump in the polls because of being the Commander in Chief when it happens, this is an election year wag the dog ploy. Then if he loses and it blows up, the Republicrat in the White House will get the blame for the war we would be dragged into.
What’s the worst that could happen?
