Hormuz threats lose their sting

Closing Hormuz clearly does not have the same snappy ring to it anymore as it had decades ago. But aside from all the bypass pipes, how long do you think would a blockade last. Ians forces are in no position to blockade anything. If they tried, they would provide ample excuse to the other Gulf countries for military action. I am not talking about invasion but rather the destruction of military structures and hardware in bombing runs. Iran knows that so I don’t expect any action ever. But then again, if Hormuz got closed, oil prices would rise and that would help US shale drillers. Some people would look forward to that.
