How the Strait of Hormuz, a narrow stretch of water where ships carry $1.2 billion of oil every day, is at the heart of spiraling tensions with Iran


Recent tensions between Iran and the US are threatening the safety of the world's ships and movement oil in the Strait of Hormuz.

The narrow strait is the most important chokepoint for the world's oil supply. Some 21 million barrels — or $1.2 billion worth of oil — pass through the strait every day.-----

Trump's blundering attempts to strong arm Iran follow the same pattern as the China trade-war mess


The pattern's like this: There's a problem, the Trump administration tries to fix it with hostility, things blow up and then cool off, relations worsen, and the problem remains.



In the case of Iran, this pattern has cost not only lives but the US's relations with its allies and global stability.------
