Iran looks like it is pushing to pick a fight. Note at the end of the story the bit about the drone.

that maybe the Straight of Hormuz is the new world hot spot, the Chinese do something to bring the focus back to the South China Sea.  It is hideously expensive, but this is why the US needs a world class navy.

The Persian Gulf may be moving up the list of world hot spots.  It may even now be above the South China Sea in the likelihood of shooting breaking out.

An interesting article in the New York Times regarding the tankers evading the Iran sanctions and how its done.

This is interesting.  It also makes one wonder about all of the criticism that the F-35 has received.

Flashpoint

While I’ve mainly been focused on the South China Sea as a potential flashpoint, it appears things are heating up in the gulf of Oman.  First, several Saudi tankers were sabotaged.  Then some Iranian boats caught fire. Now two tankers have been attacked.  This could get real hot, real fast.

I recently joked about the new Fateh class of Iranian submarine. I speculated there was a 50/50 chance it was a mock up built on an under water barge.  Here is some more information on it. (again, h/t to Jeff Groves for the pointer to this site.)

What are the odds this thing is a movie prop built on a barge?  Is it just me, or does that sub look incredibly small?

I am not sure that I believe all the claims in this article.  However, it makes for interesting reading.  In addition, it links to this article.  Tomcats v. Space Aliens?
