South Korea will send special forces to the shores of Iran - in the Strait of Hormuz


South Korea will expand the area of ​​activity of its anti-piracy special forces Cheonhe. As stated in the military department, the purpose of the presence of the military away from the Korean borders is to ensure the security of South Korean citizens and freedom of navigation.


In this regard, the South Korean government decided to send its military to the Strait of Hormuz. This was reported by the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Korea. It was anti-piracy activity that the authorities of the Republic of Korea declared their planned presence at the Iranian maritime borders. The strange thing is that in the area of ​​the Strait of Hormuz there are no sea pirates recently.

It should be noted that although the naval fleet of the international coalition led by the USA is present in the Strait of Hormuz, Seoul does not plan joint actions with it, but will act independently.

The South Korean parliament said that it was not necessary to conduct a separate vote to resolve the issue of sending troops, since it was a matter of expanding the area of ​​presence of the already formed and operating Cheonghe special forces. This will allow the military to immediately begin combat missions.

According to Harry Harris, the US ambassador to the Republic of Korea, the United States did not require South Korea to send troops to the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, but asked to consider this possibility. In this situation, it is highly likely that the United States is trying to drag South Korea into the "anti-Iranian coalition" - in case of a large-scale military confrontation in the region.

The United States created an international coalition to protect shipping after the Iranian military detained a British tanker. True, the British initially detained a tanker with Iranian oil in the Gibraltar area.

      They found an interesting place to search for pirates threatening Korea. They would have honestly said that no one gray-haired from Washington ordered to bring their ships to Iran.
      In general, somewhere I already heard this .... I remembered! When the Americans from Iran put missile defense in Poland. I won’t be surprised if tomorrow Australia will bring something of its own to Iran to protect the country from fires.

        - in the area of ​​the Strait of Hormuz, recently there are no sea pirates.
        Therefore, they direct. In the Gulf of Guinea and the Strait of Aden, they are not visible.

          Not necessarily "uncle from Washington ordered."
          It may well be that South Korea wants the United States to ask for something (for example, not to reduce fees for military bases, but it is better to build another base in South Korea).
          And they decided in advance to bend ...

        He who seeks much always finds. Usually an adventure on the fifth point. This is directly related to South Korea. The Iranian Armed Forces, these are not some pirates, in which case, heaping on the Koreans will not seem enough. But, those do not have to choose, the owner ordered.

              This is an old KDH2. He's not nearly Burke.

              Here KDH3 (Sizhon Veliky) holds the mark of the most armed destroyer in the world - 80 VPU MK41 + VPU for 48 missile launchers Hyunmoo-3 + 16 anti-ship missiles of the Harpoon class = 144 missiles of the main types.




              3 such beauties are already in the composition, now they are building 3 more according to the modernized and even more enhanced project.

          Even purely symbolic, South Korea showed that it remains the "dog" of the United States. A simple request was enough, and she rushed to fulfill it.

              Ours there before the Chinese, and without the Chinese constantly flew. The South China and Japan Seas were always in the zone of interests of the USSR and Russia. Well, the Chinese wanted on their Khun-6K (Tu-16) to be guided by our Tu-95, please, take a seat, sorry, or something. Tea is not an enemy yet, but almost allies. But when did the South Koreans find their interests in such a distance from themselves?

              Disputes over the islands, between South Korea and Japan, Russia on the side. Let them figure it out among themselves. And what about China, whose disputed islands are there? China has enough of its own, in the South China Sea.

      The DPRK Air Force has already been noted there - in 1973 on the side of Egypt and Syria. Soviet military advisers in the SAR took their heads off from them, the Israelis stumbled on a deuce of 21 Korean, stationed in Egypt over the Sinai - one was lost, the second was shot down.

    Not South Korea sent, but the United States forced. The US military, being on foreign territory, forces these countries to pay for their upkeep. You arrive at the hotel, and the hotel pays you for your stay.

    The United States did not require South Korea to send troops to the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, but asked to consider this possibility.
    Damn, almost according to Griboedov:
    "I’d be glad to serve ... To be served - too!
    And the Yankees are slowly building up an anti-Iranian coalition.
    I wonder what China will answer. After all, he also receives oil from Iran through the Strait of Hormuz.

    Nuclear weapons in the amount of a dozen or two charges? Missile technology, never flying at a real range? Of course stronger. Everyone is now afraid of her. And do not touch (yet) that there was no stink.
    And after the election, Trump wants to punish North Korea. What, does something burn out of her? Have a strong North Korea? Nuclear war and missile technology alone do not win the war. Aviation will turn the landscape of North Korea into a lifeless desert, if necessary
