The Russian-Ukrainian conflict is not over, the Middle East is in chaos again, the US-Iranian ships collided, but the US oil tanker was detained
In this world, there is no love for no reason, and there is no hate for no reason, there are just laws such as "if you do too much unrighteousness, you will kill yourself, and sooner or later you will have to pay it back".
Just as the United States continues to fan the flames and the conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues to escalate, the White House has set its sights on the Middle East again and put pressure on Iran again.
On the 28th, the Iranian Navy said that a US oil tanker flying the flag of the Marshall Islands collided with an Iranian ship in the northern Indian Ocean, resulting in two deaths and several injuries on board the Iranian vessel, and said that the tanker clearly violated international law.
After the incident, the Iranian ship immediately began to call for help at sea, and after receiving the distress signal, the Iranian Navy sent destroyers to prepare to intercept the American tanker, during which the latter not only turned off the positioning system, but also frequently changed course, trying to escape, and finally Iran dispatched a helicopter gunship, seized the tanker, and transported it to Iranian territorial waters.
Shortly after the incident, the US Navy also confirmed the news, accusing the Iranian Navy of acting "unprofessionally" and deliberately provoking Iran, demanding that Iran immediately release the seized tanker.
But at present, Iranian officials have not paid attention to the US Navy's remarks.
Obviously, from this incident, it seems that the US oil tanker provoked trouble first, hit the Iranian ship and caused casualties, and wanted to escape as soon as possible, but did not expect to be intercepted by the Iranian navy that quickly arrived and detained in Iranian territorial waters.
As we all know, the relationship between the United States and Iran is not to deal with, especially the recent reconciliation between Iran and Saudi Arabia, which makes the United States feel not taste, "new hatred and old grudges", all kinds of dissatisfaction, these days, the United States and the European Union have introduced new sanctions against Iran, and Iran has also quickly taken measures to reciprocate countermeasures, making the relationship between the two sides more tense.
Now that the US oil tanker has been detained by Iran, the US and Iranian military have been involved, which may add more complexity and risk to the situation.
In this regard, let me make three superficial observations.
1, when it is time to strike, Iran decisively detained the American tanker this time, it is indeed very tough.
After all, judging from the development of the situation, it is indeed the US oil tanker that took the lead in losses, hit an Iranian ship, caused a human life, wanted to close the position, fled, and was strongly seized by the Iranian Navy, which is not surprising.
And this, can not help but be reminiscent of the 2016, the United States and Iran "sailor incident", when two US warships broke into Iranian territorial waters despite warnings, were intercepted and detained by the Iranian Navy, when US soldiers knelt with their heads in their hands, and took the initiative to apologize to Iran, and the relevant videos and pictures were released, which made the United States lose face.
From this point of view, it is obviously unrealistic for the United States to seek benefits from Iran as tough as Iran, or to make Iran compromise by force.
What's more, there are still many old grievances between the United States and Iran, such as Iran's famous general Suleimani was "beheaded" by the US military, and Abbas Ali Suleimani, a member of Iran's expert parliament, was also assassinated recently, and there are obviously US and Western forces behind it. Under such circumstances, Iran will not compromise with the United States.
2, it cannot be ignored that the US-Iran ship collision incident is likely to be deliberately planned by the United States.
After all, the United States has been increasing pressure on Iran recently, but for now it is limited to diplomacy, and on the military side, there has been a lack of legitimate and appropriate reasons. Now that the United States and Iran have collided with ships and the US oil tanker has been detained by the Iranian Navy, the United States is likely to take this opportunity to use force against Iran.
Don't forget, when the Trump administration put maximum pressure on Iran, it once had the idea of using force against Iran, but because of the unknown division, US warships and aircraft carriers wandered around the Persian Gulf for several months, and finally quietly retreated.
From this point of view, if the United States wants to further pressure Iran, it is likely to adopt this self-directed trick, after all, for the United States that is unscrupulous to achieve its ends, this is no longer a new thing, and the original "washing powder incident" is an example.
3, the Russian-Ukrainian conflict has not yet subsided, the United States and Spain are in a hurry to go to the Middle East to fan the flames and put pressure on Iran, and the greater purpose is obviously to further disrupt the situation in the Middle East and undermine the "tide of reconciliation" that the Middle East is not easy to usher in.
After all, from the outbreak of the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria to the recent escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the tense relationship between the United States and Iran is related to the United States, and the United States has indeed benefited a lot from the chaotic situation.
From this point of view, the "tide of reconciliation" in the Middle East is now occurring, and the United States and the West are not involved in it, which makes the United States even more worried and uncomfortable, and it is not surprising that measures are taken to undermine this wave of reconciliation in the Middle East.
From this point of view, the undercurrent of the situation in the Middle East is far more complex and intense than imagined. Next, let's see how the United States and Iran will make moves.
