Notice how stubborn George Bush & Co. are about having a fleet of very expensive and powerful ships patrolling Persian Gulf.
Hire 5 small patrol boats to run an afternoon errand. Total cost: Maybe $250.
Send these 5 boats in the direction of a very expensive and powerful US ship. Ask them to zip around for 15 minutes, drop some empty wooden boxes in the water, and shout a few insults into megaphones. Once the very expensive and powerful US ship looks like its really getting ticked off, have the boats turn around and come home.

Watch the US panic over its oil supply. Also, watch as the market adds an extra $10 to the price of a barrel of oil, calling it a “risk premium” or some other fear-based label.
Do some simple math: Iran exports about 2.5 million barrels of oil a day. At $10 extra per barrel, that’s a daily bonus of $25 million. Every day of the week.
Summarizing Hypothetical Question:
Q: If you were Iran and needed money quickly to defend a looming US invasion, how would you fund it?
A: Send 5 little boats and a few megaphones on a quick mission, get some news coverage, wait for the expected tough rhetoric, watch the price of oil spike, and let Americans fund your defense budget by paying more money to fill up their very large gas tanks.
