We Could Have A War On Our Hands

The Iranian economy must really be hurting from America's Cash Flow Jihad on Iran. The Jerusalem Post reports on Iran's latests threats.

A senior Iranian officer warned that if the West continues to threaten Iran's economy over its nuclear program, Teheran will discontinue the flow of oil via the Strait of Hormuz, Israel Radio reported Monday.

According to the officer, 40% of the world's oil is transferred through the strait, and the world is dependent on Iran for a source of energy and a stable economy.
I do believe that there is a war coming to Iran.

This threat might explain why a second carrier battle group is headed to the gulf.
The aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis is scheduled to leave the United States this month for the Gulf region in a Naval buildup aimed partly as a warning to Iran. Officials decided to send the Stennis strike group on top of a carrier group already in the region on a request late last year from the U.S. Central Command, the military unit in charge of activities there as well as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a senior Pentagon official said Thursday.
Note that the threat was always implicit. All this changes is making it explicit.

That would be all the provocation we need to not merely spike Iran's nuclear program, but force regime change in Iran itself, by force.

Only the Left moonbats could object, and even the MSM wouldn't be giving them a megaphone.

Harshen the ROE in Iraq, as our forces move to Iran, Syria and Hezbollah will need to be dealt with at the same time (Syria might well choose to cave, and be well behaved) . Meanwhile, Hamas and Fatah are keeping each other busy. Interesting times.
