the second is to simply intercede by Naval force, and block any tankers
from bringing gasoline to Iran…

But what exactly are that chances that such a thing will in fact occur? slim to none anyone??

Here's Mark Steyn's take from NRO...
But even to hear Newt propose it reminds you of how unlikely it is
anyone in Teheran is getting that kind of talk from the British Foreign
Office or the Americans. A great power is as great as its credibility.
Right now, it’s Britain that’s cratering.
