Iran could mount guerrilla war in Strait of Hormuz

The weekend Wall Street Journal has a very important story by Nathan Hodge, "In war with Iran, US firepower would vie with guerrilla tactics", link here.  The print issue of the paper has many illustrations to support the article.

Iran could try to harass US Naval vessels in the Strait of Hormuz with "smart mines" that are triggered by acoustic signatures of specific kinds of ships, as well as primitive "mini-subs" and fleets of small speedboats.

The Strait is 24 miles wide at its narrowest point.

Here's a provocative YouTube video based on the "Caspian Report".
