Calls For Iranian Forces to Close Strait of Hormuz

And who would be most hurt by that? Exactly right. China. The US does not really get a lot of crude from outside anymore and what it gets does not tend to come from the Gulf. But China is utterly dependent on resources from the Gulf so they would feel the pressure pretty much immediately. India is another one who won’t like that very much. It just so happens that India and China, while not being able to match the US Navy in any way, are most likely able to deal with this. Plus, Iran would be hard-pressed to ease the pressure on countries they tend to be on good terms with. Iran won’t do any such thing. And if they did, why would the US interfere?
