STRAIGHT POOP ON THE STRAITS OF HORMUZ

I realize that here is everybody and nobody in charge of Iran. Still, somebody in the daisy chain who call the military shots in Iran should read a little Covey. Covey exhorts management to "Begin with the end in mind..."

Iran has once again suggested they are going to block the Strait of Hormuz to cut off oil flow, in response to slights, threats, disses, halitosis and male pattern baldness, all the fault of the US. If their end game is to put a lot of scrap metal and a few bodies at the bottom of the Strait, they are doing an excellent job.

Warfare against a more advanced Navy on a well defined body of water is a dicey proposition. Warfare on a well defined body of water it is an absolute certainty the other side will have air superiority is a suicide mission.

Unless this is an effort to gain the sympathy vote, this is either a stupid gambit or a suicide mission for a bunch of Iranian sailors.

What it isn't, however, is an effective strategy to accomplish any desired Iranian outcome.
