I came to know about this from a video made by Congressman Ron Paul, he was talking about a US House of Representatives Resolution (H.CON.RES 362) that requires a naval blockade on Iran. I later came to know that it has been pushed by the American Pro-Israel Lobby. It asks from Bush to stop all shipments of refined petroleum products from reaching Iran. It also “demands” that the President impose “stringent inspection requirements on all persons, vehicles, ships, planes, trains and cargo entering or departing Iran.”
This resolution has quickly attracted 146 co-sponsors and counting, this is an old number it is higher now, I think maybe 220. So the analysts have said that this will need a US naval blockade in the Strait of Hormuz. And by the way, in the senate a same kind of resolution have been introduced (S.RES 580) and have gained co-sponsors as fast its sister. If you still do not understand, to fully understand this, I can’t find anybody better than Ron Paul to explain it here it is:
