Military to practise blocking Straits of Hormuz

A MEMBER of the Iranian parliament’s national security committee has said the military is to practise its ability to close the Gulf to shipping at the narrow Strait of Hormuz, the most important oil transit channel in the world.

Parviz Sarvari told student news agency ISNA yesterday: “Soon we will hold a military manoeuvre on how to close the Strait of Hormuz. If the world wants to make the region insecure, we will make the world insecure.”

Iran’s military declined to comment on the claim.

Iran’s energy minister told Al-Jazeera television last month that Tehran could use oil as a political tool in the event of any future conflict.

About one-third of all sea-borne shipped oil in the world passed through the Straits in 2009, according to the US Energy Information Administration, and US warships patrol the area to ensure safe passage.

Most of the crude exported from Saudi Arabia, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Iraq, together with nearly all the liquefied natural gas from lead exporter Qatar, must slip through the four-mile wide shipping channel between Oman and Iran.

The UAE is believed to be planning to pump oil via an as yet unused pipeline and bypass the Straits. The pipeline links state firm Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s Habshan oilfields to the port and storage terminal of Fujairah.

    Very soon most of the world will not need Oil. Renewable Energy like Solar, Wind, Hydro and Geothermal are now replacing dirty Energy like Oil. Solar Energy is growing World Wide at a record pace.
    Hybrid Cars are being sold at a record pace. Soon Hybrid Vehicles that run on Electric / Hydrogen, The Freedom Element. Will free the world from Oil. Thanks to a Great Scientist Dr. Addison Bain’s Years of work for our Nation and with the Space Program on Hydrogen.

    The day will come when many will see Solar Panels on most everything. What Free Electric the sun makes will be used to split water into Hydrogen. The Hydrogen will be used to heat our homes and to cook on and put into are Hybrid Vehicles that will run on
    (The Freedom Element). Very soon most all will be filling up their Vehicles at Home.
    Free from the Sun’s Solar Energy. Just as Dr.Addison Bain has done for years the fist Hydrogen home refueling Station in the World. That Dr. Addison Bain built by his self.

    GOD Bless All
    and may our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Light Up Your World and cheer your Heart this Christmas.
    Pray for the lost to come to know Jesus Christ.
