Military Strategy

About: Iran to give crushing response to any aggression

"the naval experts strive to design and construct defense terminals from where the Navy can intercept the enemies vessels adding such terminals would be effective to target hostile vessels in the Persian Gulf."
What kind of "terminals" are you talking about?

What is interesting to note is that although the Strait of Hormuz (which IRNA has so conveniently pictured for us here)  is definitely a choke point, the ME oil distribution network is probably less dependant on tankers moving through it than most people realize.  There are pipelines through Turkey and ports on the Red Sea as well.  Just how disasterous would the total closure of Hormuz actually be to the world's economy?  And would it not hurt Iran more than the West?

Iran's potential following through on its threat to prevent inspections by the IAEA is certainaly a new line in the sand.  Were that line to be crossed, there will be little hope of preventing a full blown military confrontation as long as hard liners are in power.  Me thinks that line will shape the next moves. 

Please note that this node is for strategic military thinking only ... no politics allowed.
