U.S. Sends 5th Fleet to Block Strait of Hormuz to Thwart Hamas, Hezbollah

United States State Department officials, speaking for the missing-in-action Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, said at a joint announcement with Russian Federation Foreigh Minister Sergey Viktorovich Lavrov that the US had deployed the 5th Fleet of the U.S. Navy to block the critical oil-shipping channel of the Strait of Hormuz “in order to show our sincerity in the pursuit of peace and limit support to the proxy fighting of Hamas and Hezbollah directed against Israel.”

Clinton, President Barack Obama, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Vice President Joe Biden have been in seclusion, with the exception of a brief statement by Obama a few hours after the initial attack by Israel.
