    Thousands? No. That's a ridiculous number. More like dozens, plus a few hundred older missiles.

    Sure, the Iranians could temporarily close the Straits and sink a bunch of tankers, right before the entire pissed-off world ganged up on them and dealt out some serious whoopass. Aircraft have much more range than Sunburn missiles.

    So, the question isn't "could they". They could. It's "for how long" and "why would they try such a thing?".

    The greatest Military the world has ever seen has the power to reduce Iran to a hole full of camel dung with conventional weapons in a week and they know it. It's a shame that we have dumb asses like Hillary and president Hussein to lead us but that's about to change.
