6. Well, of course they are. Militaries train for relevant things if they're doing their jobs.

If every country with any military to speak of near the Gulf doesn't plan for the defense, closure, or opening of the Strait of Hormuz, they're dropping a few balls.

I get the panic-incitement intent of articles like that, but I also get that the Canadian and British militaries had plans for trashing the American border states up until the 1930s with no intent of actually using them.
