Here is the blather from the nutcases:
TEHRAN - In case Iran’s interests in the region are jeopardized, it will shut down the strategic Strait of Hormuz and will not allow the others to use it, Iranian Armed Forces Chief of Staff Major General Hassan Firuzabadi warned here on Saturday.
“The Strait of Hormuz being open is of considerable importance for us but if our interests are ignored, it is all clear that we will close the strait” Firuzabadi stressed.
Addressing the U.S. troops in the region, he said “The U.S. army belongs to its government and should not be abused by such warlike and extremists as George Bush and the Zionists”.
Firuzabadi also expressed condolences and sympathy to the families of the innocent victims of Flight 655.
Flight 655 was shot down by the U.S. Navy’s guided missile cruiser USS Vincennes over the Persian Gulf on July 3, 1988, and all 290 passengers and crew members, including 66 children were killed.
