    So I don’t really want to get embroiled in some long, protracted war over there, but what do you guys say we just eliminate Iran’s naval/air capabilities?

      There's a difference between enforcing sovereignty and piracy. If this was the former, there are negotiations to be made. If it was the latter, your suggestion is the only real option.

        I'm hearing reports of a third tanker being siezed, but nothing confirmed yet on the outlets

        Is it two or three?

        Edit... it's 2

          I don’t want bloodshed any more than anyone else, but I have to think there’s a way to eliminate or at least mitigate their ability to be aggressive.

            Maybe have a destroyer escort every tanker? Though I would think that would be pretty costly.

              Yeah, it’s a lot cheaper to just blow all their shit up, or at least most of it.

              Plus, look at the bright side. In a few years we can sell them a bunch of our old shit, unloading a bunch of old inventory and solving the problem/financing the operation in one swoop.

                Convoy system, like in WW2
