I've Been Thinking:
Ever since the EU sanctions came into full swing on July 1, the world has been gearing up for Iran's counter response.
The most logical response from Iran would be a narrowing of the Straits of Hormuz. Not a closing - a narrowing. Slow down oil transport, but not block it. That action would put the US in a quandary. Do they intervene or not intervene.
Saudi Arabia is at work trying its own form of intimidation. Reports have surfaced that the Saudis are offering to buy the Chinese nuclear Dong-Fen 21 ((NATO-codenamed CSS-5) ballistic missile. They are offering $60 billion plus oil.
When Saudi Arabia gets a nuclear missile, the game has changed. It puts Saudi Arabia above Iran in the race for nuclear weapons. That threat will either escalate Iran's intentions, or curb them.
