The heat is on in the Persian Gulf

A bid to close the Strait of Hormuz would draw a quick U.S. military response.

The US Secretary of Defense Panetta and Joint Chief of Staff Mullen.

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned Iran on Sunday that any attempt to carry out it’s threat to choke off the world’s oil supply by closing the Strait of Hormuz would “draw a quick U.S. military response.”

“We made very clear that the United States will not tolerate the blocking of the Strait of Hormuz,” Panetta said.

“That’s another red line for us and we will respond to them.”

The US 5th fleet is the last US defense of the Oil wells in Saudi Arabia.

Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, acknowledged that the Iranians could block tanker traffic “for a period of time.”

“We’ve invested in capabilities to ensure that if that happens, we can defeat that,” Dempsey said. “But we would take action and reopen the strait.”

Panetta also said the U.S. would consider it a “red line” if Iran begins to develop a nuclear weapon.

“I think they need to know that…if they take that step, that they’re going to get stopped,” Panetta said.

“Are they trying to develop a nuclear weapon?

“No,” Panetta said.

“But we know that they’re trying to develop a nuclear capability. And that’s what concerns us. And our red line to Iran is, ‘Do not develop a nuclear weapon.'”

The present US military presence on the seven seas is greater then the Victorian 'rule Britannia". It is expensive, and will be reduced.

My comment:

The whole idea of Iran even planning to block the  Strait of Hormuz is absurd.

What would the purpose of such a blockade be?

Blocking Iranian trade, import and export?

The West needs to find a way to excuse a military attack on Iran. The West must claim Iran was the attacker of US interests.

The US has a full fleet with its home base inside the Iranian bay, or the Persian gulf. That Iran will even bid to block the The US 5th fleet access to its home base, fall flat on its own logic.

That Iran needs to be crippled, is another side of the same coin. Iran is in its final stages of developing a nuclear bomb.

The US Secretary of state was not man enough to admit that: But find a poor excuse.

Why should the US block Iran from having nuclear energy, that lightened up the whole of Western Europe and the US it self?

Washington do no like the thought of its naval base in Bahrain, only 100 miles west of the beaches in Iran, living under the constant treat of being nuked. The Saudis do not like this either.

Israel has for a long time claimed that military action against Iran is overdue. The regime in Tehran has bluntly said that Zionist Israel will disappear. It will be better for the World if the Iranian regime is removed before such a disappearance.

Jesus told us to bless our enemies. Imprisonment of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be he best blessings the Iranian people can get.

  1. I just now noticed the calendar you have posted begins with Monday – the 2nd day of the week.

    Why are you attempting to change the way Yehovah’s times were set from the beginning? Why are you falling into the world’s trap on this.

    Please change the calendar you post to reflect the TRUTH, and not the lies of the world system.

    1. Dear Fulfilling Torah.

      Shalom.

      My reply:

      I feel the World was created on a Wednesday. Not sure that the calendar was made at them time, but…..

      1. If Iran tries to block it, US will sink Irans entire navy to the bottom of the gulf. I hope it doesn’t have to come to that
