    In order for Iran to fire on a carrier transiting the SoH that'd have to occur as an opening shot to war. I don't see Iran doing this. If war was already underway Iran sure could prevent carriers from going into or leaving the Gulf that's as certain as can be.

    But war would be so costly to everybody I don't see it happening, not on the current trajectory.

      Too much advantage to both camps in having a rhetorically evil, practically impossible-to-dislodge foe.

      If one counts 'regimes' as camps.

      What the schmoes want does not seem particularly useful information in the meetings that decide such policies.

        No doubt having the Eye-O'Told-Ya and the Great Satan around is exactly what certain American and Iranian factions want.
