Iran thinks they can mess with ‘The Donald’—well he’s a got a trump card up his sleeve.
For decades, Iran has been a major enemy to the United States.
That’s not big news—they chant “Death to America” in the streets, after all.
But ever since Donald Trump killed the Iran Nuclear Deal, the rogue nation has been furious. We deprived them of nukes, of course, they’d be mad. They were going to use them on Israel!
Iran’s leaders have continued to make threats against America. It’s clear their goal is to wipe us and our allies, off the map.
It seems like, to back their wild threats, they just made one terrible move. And it could provoke our retaliation.
From Fox News:
A major shipping route located between Oman and Iran where nearly one-third of the world’s sea-traded oil passes through daily may become a new flashpoint after a top Iranian Navy general said Monday that the country has taken full control of the Strait of Hormuz…
Strait of Hormuz:
•Located between Oman & Iran
•Narrowest point: 21 miles wide
•Shipping lanes: 2 miles wide in either direction
•Nearly 1/3 of the world's sea-traded oil passes through daily

President Obama’s former National Security Adviser Jim Jones, a four-star general, said in an interview earlier this month the Iranian Navy should be “wiped out” if any action is taken to block maritime traffic.
President Trump is no fan of Iran. While Obama kowtowed to the terrorist-backing nation, Trump has been tough on them since day one.
He hasn’t minced words when speaking about Iran’s leaders. Just days ago, he dropped crippling sanctions on the terrorist-led government:
The Iran sanctions have officially been cast. These are the most biting sanctions ever imposed, and in November they ratchet up to yet another level. Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!

How does Iran respond? By blocking a major avenue for sea travel. Big mistake.
Iran thinks it can frustrate not only the United States but every nation that relies on that strait. It’s not just the U.S. who will have trouble. Iran is forgetting we have numerous allies in the region.
That includes Saudi Arabia, which is just a stone’s throw from the Strait of Hormuz. If Iran is serious about blocking the strait, they will have big trouble soon.
It’s not far-fetched to think that the United States, working with allies in the region, could wipe out the Iranian Navy. It doesn’t even have to be that wide-spread. Strategic moves can ensure that Iran will regret capturing that strait.
This could be the beginning of the end for Iran’s rogue government. Hopefully, we will be seeing their radical mullahs take down very soon.
