This is not WW3; this is only a test. Still, the closing of the straits of Hormuz, through which 1/3 or world's crude passes daily, for a 'training exercise' is serious saber rattling.

Are these nutcases covering up their chuckles,
as they contemplate plunging millions into abyss of a war?
Iranian leadership is a breed apart. They reinforce their rightful image of a mad dog that attacks anything in sight when the announced today: "If the world wants to make the region insecure, we will make the world insecure." Not only is this a psychopathic projection of aggression, it also reflects illusions of grandeur and narcissistic tendencies of the fatal kind.
