#4 Massive military exercise involving 100 warships 'is underway in Iran' amid heightened tensions with the US

#5 And Iran has it within its grip.

Illusory grip, that is. If this were a game, and I had the choice of playing Iran's hand or the world's, there wouldn't be much of a decision to make. Put a knife to the mullah's throats and they'll call the whole thing off.

#6 They may want to rethink that strategy. This isn't Obumble and his tranny, butt boffing idiots in charge.

Trump will let Mathis off the leash and the Navy will rain holy hell and fire on Iran.

#8 The response of Adam Smith’s invisible hand:

Oil Edges Lower on Surprise U.S. Crude Stockpile Build

Like all the missiles shot at President Trump that circle round to hit those on the Left, this one will not hit America. In fact, our many oil producers will profit from rising prices supporting increased production. The part of the world that gets their oil primarily from the Persian Gulf, however...

#9 American oil and gas don't need to go through the Strait.

No, but pipelines et al have to go through an equally dangerous enemy, the EPA, part of Deep State and local mullahs potentates (see: Cuomo).

See e.g., China. Heck of a way to win the trade war Mr. President. High marks if it actually happens.
