Sunday's flight by the U.S. Air Force of a B-1B strategic fighter bomber was over critical maritime chokepoints in Mideast. This took place amid tensions with Iran, whose nuclear agreement with world powers is still in ruins. Saturday's flight by the B-1B Lancer bomber over the Strait of Hormuz was a historic moment in the history of oil trade through the Strait of Hormuz. In recent years, the Strait of Hormuz was the site of Iranian-led attacks on shipping. Meanwhile, similar assaults have been made on the Red Sea in the ongoing shadow war between Israel and Tehran.
