Ken, you repeat the same mistake that many others have made. Imagine a hostile foreign country proclaimed they would close a US port, and then fired at US ships trying to enter or leave the port. The US would interpret this as an act of war and respond militarily. Who wouldn't? This is exactly what happened on May 22, 1967 at the Straits of Tiran. Egypt declared war on Israel BEFORE the so-called "pre-emptive" strike.
