Reply Threat

Meanwhile, the American reply to the Iranian threat by deploying warships patrolling in the area, and determined to force the blockade of Iran, if necessary. Strait of Hormuz is the most important trade routes of the world's oil. Arab countries themselves doubted Iran really a blockade of the Strait of Hormuz, because the strait is also the pulse of life for Iran's own economy.
