An armada of US and British naval power is massing in the Persian Gulf in the belief that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s covert nuclear weapons programme.

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.

A blockade would have a catastrophic effect on the fragile economies of   Britain, Europe the United States and Japan, all of which rely heavily on   oil and gas supplies from the Gulf. The Strait of Hormuz is one of the world’s most congested international   waterways. It is only 21 miles wide at its narrowest point and is bordered   by the Iranian coast to the north and the United Arab Emirates to the south.

The war games are the largest ever undertaken in the region.
They will practise tactics in how to breach an Iranian blockade of the strait   and the force will also undertake counter-mining drills.
The multi-national naval force in the Gulf includes three US Nimitz class   carrier groups, each of which has more aircraft than the entire complement   of the Iranian air force.

The Strait of Hormuz has long been disputed territory, with the Iranians   claiming control of the region and the entire Persian Gulf.
Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps recently   boasted that “any plots of enemies” would be foiled and a heavy price   exacted, adding: “We determine the rules of military conflict in the Persian   Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz.”

When Obama was elected I thought he would become the President of the World.  Why don't Israel and Iran listen to Obama.  The world would be a better place if everyone listened to Obama.  After all, he did win the Nobel Peace Prize.
