Iran will close the Strait of Hormuz if its oil exports are subjected to foreign sanctions, the Islamic Republic's official news agency reported.

"If they impose sanctions on Iran's oil exports, then even one drop of oil cannot flow from the Straits of Hormuz," IRNA quoted Mohammad Reza Rahimi, Iran's first vice-president, as saying, referring to Western countries.

Oil from Persian Gulf countries travels through the Straits of Hormuz on its way to oil-importing countries around the world. The strait is the Persian Gulf's only outlet and is bordered by Iran, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.

The National Defense Authorization Act is placing the sanctions on Iran which are FORCING their hand in these issues. Our government is playing with fire and ASKING for World War III by picking a fight with the Iranian Government. This SAME legislation gives our own government the power to detain American citizens indefinitely and without trial for speaking out against this agenda of war-profiteering through causing constant strife and conflict in the Middle East. Join the discussion about how our Government is waging war without public approval and suppressing our Freedom of Speech so far that we are petrified to stand up against them.
