xtreemnews.com - Iran has threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz. That's a BIG DEAL!
The Strait of Hormuz provides the ONLY sea passage from the Persian Gulf to the open ocean and is one of the world's most strategically important choke points. The strait handles about two-thirds of the world's seaborne cargoes of crude oil and other petroleum liquids. It links Middle East crude producers to key markets in Asia Pacific, Europe, North America and beyond. Sea-borne crude and condensate flows transiting the Strait are estimated at around 17.4 million bpd (barrels per day).

Why Iran is Threatening to Close the Strait of Hormuz
Close the Strait and It's War!
Mitt Romney, during his campaign in 2012, said, it would be considered an ‘Act of war’ if Iran closes Strait of Hormuz. He stated 'We want to show Iran that closing the Strait or any action similar act, will be considered an act of war, an act of terror and America is going to keep the sea lanes open'. (link here)
Of course, he's right. Trump's Administration said virtually the same thing two days ago.
US Ready to Confront Iran if Strait of Hormuz is Closed
The Iranian threat to close the Strait is not new. They threatened to do this is 2011, 2012 and incidents in the Strait go back to 1988. But this time is different. The time period is different. The US is now responding to the Iranian threats and Iran is now willing to retaliate. These wars in the Middle East are ALL about oil. The oil is the number one thing with the world ruling powers and you better believe they are going to fight over the oil.
Revelation 6:6 reads 'see you do not hurt the oil'
Make no mistake about it. The US, EU and Russia want that oil! They’ve got to have that oil and if they have the oil, they’ll have the power to run their machinery, fly their war planes to destroy nations. They will do WHATEVER it takes to keep the oil safe!
