Iran forces US to change strategy

83

Tensions between Iran and the United States are forcing the U.S. forces to maintain the costly presence of troops and equipment in the Middle East for years to protect the transportation of oil in the Persian Gulf. This was reported by NBC News with reference to a joint study published by the Washington Center for New American Security and Columbia University.


The study reveals a clear bias.

The report said that Iran’s ability to influence oil prices, disrupting supply routes, is greatly overestimated. A sharp jump in oil prices will occur only if the United States and the Islamic Republic enter into a full-blown conflict.

From the material of the American media:

But, given Iran’s ability to deliver targeted attacks on the oil infrastructure of Saudi Arabia, the US military is forced to contain large forces here with air defense and missile defense systems, as well as warships at the ready.

This will lead to the fact that the Pentagon’s plans to move the center of attention from the Middle East to the fight against China in the Pacific, as it was planned earlier, could be frustrated. "Return to Asia" was one of the slogans of President Barack Obama in the 2011-2012 years, however, fundamental steps over the past decade have not been taken. In fact, Iran is forcing the United States to change its global strategy.

                    There is no doubt your denseness, but with the "Dome" everything is in order - the efficiency is 90%, the last massive shelling from Gaza has once again demonstrated this. Several hundred rockets in densely populated areas and a couple of lightly wounded. And the attack with four missiles from Assad’s territory, which forced the Israelis to react, was successfully neutralized - all four missiles were shot down by the installation of the same Iron Dome. And these were by no means artisanal Kasams, but quite modern Iranian industry products.

        Even Stalin had to refer to the Bible for his own purposes

        Here is how the Russian traveler, biologist, anthropologist G. Sidorov describes this testimony of Kaganovich in his book "The Rock of Those Who Think They Are Gods":

        “One day, after another scam about Kaganovich’s incorrectly selected personnel, Stalin, softening up, said that he understands us Jews and is very sorry. Take, for example, our national education, whom we have been forced to copy from childhood? and villains, but these scum are not just our heroes or saints, but also patriarchs.
        Looking at me and being silent for a while, Joseph Vissarionovich suddenly asked a question, do I know the story of the forefather Jacob? Naturally, I said that I knew his story.
        Then Joseph Vissarionovich asked me again:
        - Do you think, Lazar Moiseevich, is it normal if Jacob began to quarrel over the birthright with his brother in the womb? While in the womb, he wanted to delay the birth of his brother and was born, clinging to his heel. And then, taking advantage of the hunger, Jacob takes the birthright from him for lentil stew. Not only that, he deceived his dying father, pretending to be Esau, and thereby appropriated the blessing intended not for him.
        I said nothing, and Stalin continued with a grin:
        - The trouble is that this disgusting act is not condemned by Judaism, but recognized as magnificent. Or I'm wrong?
        And then it only dawned on me what Joseph Vissarionovich was trying to tell me. That our religion is fundamentally flawed. It does not correspond to human morality.
        “No, you are not mistaken,” I said then, “so it is ...”
        “Maybe now you tell me what happened next?” - Joseph Vissarionovich screwed up his dark eyes.
        “After deceiving his father, Jacob runs to his uncle,” I began to recall, “where he will marry.”
        “And for twenty years he has been deceiving his father-in-law when dividing the offspring, right?”
        Stalin knew details that were unknown to me. Meanwhile, he continued:
        “Notice, Lazar Moiseevich, that Jacob married his cousin.” This is incest, and is it not for this reason that the Jews still respect it?
        “Perhaps,” I muttered.
        “Now let's remember together how Jacob’s struggle with the spirit of the night ended?” - Stalin clearly wanted to finish the topic of Jacob. - It seems that God told him that from now on the name of Jacob will be Israel. What does it mean, it seems, "winner"? Good hero! His main weapon is a lie. Which conclusion follows from all? Only the one that is in the myth. If you want to win, use a sophisticated lie? Or am I misunderstood something?
        - That's right, - then I was completely at a loss.
        “Think about it, dear Lazar Moiseevich, where are such saints calling you to?” But you and they are all liars and bastards. Do you know what I think? The unfortunate people who have such ideals to follow.
        With these words, Joseph Vissarionovich came out of my office. When the door closed behind him, I sat for several hours thinking. In his own words, Stalin touched the most secret in me, something that we Jews, as a rule, don’t think about. And I realized that Stalin was right - my people were cruelly deceived, deceived since the womb, and some evil forces use it ... "

            The acts of the forefather Jacob are not fairy tales.
            There are tales of Ukrainian David Naydis.
            In 1967, he was expelled from the CPSU, expelled from the fifth year of journalism at the University of Kiev (correspondence department), dismissed from work (deputy editor of a city newspaper), convicted of anti-Soviet activities (friendship with Vyacheslav Chernovil, "slanderous" poems and "anti-Soviet" leaflets) for three years in prison.
            https://www.proza.ru/2010/09/08/270

            PS Russians also write fairy tales (epics, fables).
            The words "Tale - a lie, but a hint in it ..." - from one Russian writer.

    That is unnecessary
    in Israel

    Now, the most popular language to learn is Russian - our evriyas are learning the rest. And not only the language, but also how to survive in general under the conditions of developed socialism. They smell it from where it blows, and the "north wind" excites them especially, as they will smell it with even greater zeal they teach. They smell it, but the smell is developed too. There Netanyahu every week runs to Putin to bow and keep his finger on the pulse ... The world has changed ... For example, all my Jewish friends, very good people, now speak only Russian. And here, on the forum, did you notice? Some are Russian-speaking, and every day there are more and more such Jews ...

    This will lead to the fact that the Pentagon’s plans to move the spotlight from the Middle East to fight China in the Pacific

    On May 5, this year, the Minister of Defense and Support of the Armed Forces of Iran, Hossein Dehgan, met in Beijing with his Chinese counterpart Chan Wanquan, during which both sides discussed issues of expanding the military and defense partnership of both states. It was stated: "In the current conditions prevailing in the region and in the whole world, Iran and China see common threats for themselves, expressed in the military intervention of the United States and the country's attempts to carry out its dictatorship in all parts of the world."

        To maintain their status as a regional leader, you need currency; Persians need American dollars. A lot of american dollars.
        The new sanctions are only 1.5 years old; and Iran is already forced to double gasoline prices. European companies have left; a system of mutual settlements with them has not been created.
        He will survive, but for Hezbollah and the Hussites, you need currency, you need dollars, you can’t get them, and the nuclear program does not create dollars either.

          The trade turnover of China and Iran is $ 20, Russia and Iran $ 000 ... The EU did not take joy in the decision of the United States and the governments of Germany and France are interested in trade with Iran. And who will give the United States its trump cards in the Iranian party?
          So far, we see the determination of the head of Iran and the Iranian people to resist US ambitions. By the way. The same Israel, suffering from outbreaks of aggression, which seems to have its leadership in the region, with all its natural "restraint" does not go to a direct confrontation with Iran, but escapes with attacks on Syria.

            If France; Germany will want to trade with Iran, they will immediately lose the American market. That is why European companies have left Iran.


            To China, Iran supplies mainly oil, whose export has halved.
            In the future, Iran will restore its nuclear program, and no Europeans can return
            The European Union simply will not allow trade with the state, which is creating its own nuclear weapons and violates the agreement on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.

            What else can Iran do? There is only one planet, the States will not trade with it, the Europeans are much more important than the American market, the Chinese do not need oil except the oil, Iran.

        The petrochemical, automotive and construction sectors, which are highly dependent on imported equipment and raw materials, suffer from the depreciation of the Iranian currency, which lost in 2018. more than 50% of the cost. The prospects for the oil sector itself are gloomy. it was expected that the decline in 2019 will be from 26% to 31%. Overall, Iran's economy this year is expected to lose 5,5% of GDP (after recession 4,9% in 2018).

              Game theory is a mathematical method for studying optimal strategies in games. Under the game refers to a process in which two or more parties are involved in the struggle to realize their interests. Each of the parties has its own goal and uses some strategy, which can lead to winning or losing - depending on the behavior of other players. Game theory helps to choose the best strategies based on ideas about other participants, their resources and their possible actions [1].

              For starters and shkolota I explain, game theory is not a counter strike and not tetris, game theory is a scientific approach to decision-making in certain situations, these situations are called games, and it doesn’t matter what the situation is, crossing the road at the intersection, traveling from home to work, buying goods at the store, generals 'headquarters game, diplomats' geopolitical game or something else doesn’t matter because something is something, a “game”, attention: the adoption of the most profitable decisions, and not as usual through F ** y and the happy heel of a woman dusi.
