The Strait of Hormuz, “the jugular of the global economy," has become a useful bargaining chip for Iran.

The Strait of Hormuz is a narrow waterway that lies between Iran and Oman. This 21 mile-wide passage supports 20% of the world’s oil supply. A closure of this waterway could send the global economy into a tailspin.
In recent months, several oil tankers have been seized, attacked and harassed. These oil tankers - and this narrow water passage - are at the center of the conflict between the US and Iran. It's a conflict that spans decades and has the potential to escalate in one of the world’s most important oil chokepoints.

Western countries build a forest in the name of the United Nations. When they seized the Iranian oil tanker, we did so by citing the same rules. Iran is not a country to stand up to bullying, like Libya, first with its nuclear negotiations and then going for its ballistic missiles; and then attacking it with nothing to defend. And now that the Western media is coming and rejecting the whole story of the Iranian tanker being banned by the British.

So basically, if US does something, it's to protect democracy and world interest. If anyone else does the same thing, they become terrorists, human-rights violators and what not. To be honest, no country's a saint. Everyone shows the face of being a savior but no one really cares about the world as a whole. Just self interest.

You seem to know a lot but why you not mentioning the reason why Iran nuclear deal was shot down because of trump was because they were still making nukes. While we were paying him under Obama not to make them. And you forgot a big part where Obama gave them uranium. And said hey don't use this to make nukes lol stay woke everyone
