An Iranian blockade of Hormuz an act of war… Oh My!!

An Iranian blockade of the straight of Hormuz would be an act of war says a top US military official:

Any Iranian move to blockade the Strait of Hormuz would be considered as an “act of war”, a top US military official said yesterday.

Iran would “not be allowed” to take control of the key oil route and an attempt to do so would provoke a “vigorous” international response, said outgoing Fifth Fleet Commander Vice-Admiral Kevin Cosgriff.

He was responding to Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander General Mohammed Ali Jafari’s warning on Saturday that Iran would choke off the strait if the country was attacked.

I wonder if Mr. Cosgriff doesn’t consider the attack against Iran that Iran would be reacting to when it blockades off the straight, an act of war?  Also, I wonder if Mr. Cosgriff hasn’t heard of the blockade the US government is planning on putting into effect on Iran right now?

Sometimes the way we so self-righteously swallow our own propaganda really astounds me.
