From the Hertiage Foundation, some helpful hints on keeping Iran from ruining the global economy at Countering Iran's Oil Weapon. Hints include:
-Recognize and prepare for the threat.
-Maintain a strong U.S. and allied naval pres­ence in the Persian Gulf.
-Improve U.S. naval capabilities, including minesweeping and anti-ship missile defense.
-Create a contingency plan for the domestic energy market.
-Create a contingency plan for the domestic energy market.
