Iranian navy "can readily block" Strait of Hormuz

I would like to see how long the Iranian Navy could hold up against the United States Navy!
I'm sure it is a pretty good Match up.


(Xinhua) -- Iran's Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said that the country's naval forces can readily block the strategic Strait of Hormuz if needed, the local satellite Press TV reported on Wednesday.

"Closing the Strait of Hormuz is very easy for Iranian naval forces," Sayyari told Press TV on Wednesday as the Iranian Navy continued with the ten-day naval drills in the Strait of Hormuz and Sea of Oman.

"Iran has comprehensive control over the strategic water way," Sayyari was quoted as saying.

Sayyari, however, noted that the Islamic republic steadfastly maintains its interest in "establishing sustainable security and stability in the region."
