92. yes, thats true. but Iranian tactics have improved

Well, perhaps IF mines is ALL Iran has and IF they just roll over and give up immediately.

But what if - a much more likely scenario - they have supersonic anti-ship missiles dug into hidden bunkers all along their side of the Straights of Hormuz and able to hit any point within the Straights within less than one minute?

Even US carriers wouldn't be able to live on that waterway.

And then there are strikes against Saudi oil installations.

There are multiple critical facilities where a single hit would close down Saudi exports for a long time.

What price oil then?

It is delusional to imagine that anyone - and that includes the Israelis - would win from a middle east conflagration.
