    Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.

    Western leaders are convinced that Iran will retaliate to any attack by attempting to mine or blockade the shipping lane through which passes around 18 million barrels of oil every day, approximately 35 per cent of the world’s petroleum traded by sea.

    if Iran is involved in a war with Israel it would be wise for the Iranians to NOT close the Straight of Hormuz.

    that would be an act of war that would draw other nations into the conflict.

    However, I do not believe the Iranian govt. is all that smart.

    Why would a middle Eastern War be World War III?

    Because it is a nice fearmongering topic?

    Nope, I do not believe in fortune telling and such.

    NOw if one can predict the orbit of a large asteroid and it's resulting impact on the earty..
    Or the result of shipping jobs overseas...
    Those are the types of seeing the future I believe in.

    do you believe we are all predestined and have no freedom of choice?
    That is the case if you believe in those like Nostrildoggis who claim to predict the future.

    Maybe because the whole world has a stake in the outcome?

    World War 3 from Iran? The whole of the Arabic world could not muster the firepower for WW3. But a conflict in that region could economically destabalize the world. Especially at this time.

    Should Isreal start a conflict like that, I don't think that nation will enjoy the resultant isolation from the rest of the world.

    People, we need to get something straight.

    Isreal owes the US. We owe Isreal nothing at all. Without the US Isreal would not exist. If Isreal choses to take actions that negatively impact the rest of the world, when there is not a definate threat to Isreal, then Isreal will suffer the consequences.
