By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
On Sunday Iran tested a new torpedo - a high speed torpedo.
The Iranian missile was tested in the Straits of Hormuz, totally within Iranian water. No international protocols were violated.
The missile is called the Hoot, it travels 250 miles per hour with a range of 6 miles.
The West, understandably worried, is watching the Hoot very closely. Remember, one third of the world's oil travels through the Straits of Hormuz every day.
This torpedo test is another example of Iran flexing its muscles in the Straits. The West knows well that they are held captive by Iran in this enormously strategic and essential waterway.
