Iran could prevent even "a single drop of oil" passing through the Strait of Hormuz if its security is threatened, a naval chief said on Saturday, as tensions simmer over Tehran's nuclear program.

Tehran will increase its military presence in international waters, said Ali Fadavi, naval commander in Iran's elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

"If they (the U.S.) do not obey international laws and the IRGC's warnings, it will have very bad consequences for them," Fadavi said, according to Iran's Fars News Agency.

"The IRGC's naval forces have had the ability since the (Iran-Iraq) war to completely control the Strait of Hormuz and not allow even a single drop of oil to pass through."

 What is an IRGC naval commander doing gooz goozing? You should be in some temple/mosque/husaynieh praying for the things you usually pray for. Chekheh! bache poroo.



I have seen this pervailing attitude amongst many iranian youth and even some Guys my own age, that basically confirms the so-called advances that have been made since the Iran-Iraq war and they say that with such a self-assured and confident voice, You know, along the lines of we can do it if we want to and it all can be done in a few days:)))

I just hope that one day nobody would have to wake up and look at their dissapointed faces once they have faced the inevitable "IF" war becomes the only choice out of this mess.
