 File under: Govt of Iran 

#1 Iran might close the Strait of Hormuz for a little while but they wouldn't be able to hold it with the whole world pushing back. They would also try to stir things up with Israel as a distraction. And Maduro would take advantage of that.

#2 Time to implement Tom Clancy's "Ryan Doctrine", take out the leaders of the country that starts things and not worry about the schlubs in the front line so much. The ayatholahs and caliphs should quickly get up close and personal with a missle.

#6 "On April 23rd, a huge story went mostly unnoticed as former Iranian Brigadier General Ali Nasiri from the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) allegedly defected to the United States through an embassy in the region. He had with him a treasure trove of documents related to Iranian military and intelligence plans."

#7 If the Abe goes into the Gulf, I gotta expect a Boomer is already there, ready to fire if things get dicey.
Q: Are the Mullahs really sure they want to press that button, knowing they are already in some cross hairs somewhere????? This is not a Charlie and Lucy football moment; the stakes could get a lot higher a lot faster.
