American B-52H bombers demonstrate "US power" to Iran

The United States has once again flexed its muscles in the Middle East by sending two B-52H Stratofortress strategic bombers to the region. A non-stop flight from US territory to Iran's borders was reported by US Central Command.


Two American strategists on Sunday made a non-stop flight from the United States to the Middle East. According to air resources, the bombers took off from Minot airbase (North Dakota) and flew over Gibraltar, the Mediterranean Sea, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and over the Persian Gulf south of Iran's borders.

Air refueling was provided by the US Air Force KC-135R and KC-10A tanker aircraft. In some areas, the B-52Hs were escorted by Israeli, Saudi Arabian and Qatar Air Force fighters.

It is noted that this is the fourth flight of American strategists in the Iranian region against the background of aggravated relations between Washington and Tehran. The first three flights were carried out in January this year, in February there were no flights. Based on the included transmitters indicating the route and type of aircraft, the B-52H bombers demonstrated "US strength" to Iran.

Note that on March 5, the United States extended the 1995 sanctions against Iran. The corresponding decree was signed by US President Joe Biden.

    but no one was scared.

    The US needs a nuclear deal as much as Iran.

      US Needs Nuclear Deal

      Netanyahu said Israel would not allow Iran to receive nuclear weapons.

        The first significant Iranian state was Median kingdom founded at the end of the VIII - the beginning of the VII century BC. BC, with the capital at Hamadan (Ecbatana).
        At this time, Israel already existed as an independent state.
        Modern Iran does not recognize Israel.
        In the official statements of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Israel is called "Zionist regime"... There are no diplomatic relations.

        From a Christian point of view, it is difficult to understand such a position. Diplomatic relations are the tenth thing, but not recognition of the same ancient state looks very strange ...

      The US needs a nuclear deal as much as Iran.

      But not the kind Obama pushed through

      Below is a summary of the timeline, key components and current status of the multi-year agreement.

      Implementation period

      July 14, 2015 Day of revision: conclusion of the contract. The end day prompts Iran and the United States to begin internal JCPOA review processes. Iran is also beginning to provide the IAEA with the information the agency needs to complete an investigation into past nuclear weapons development.
      18th of October 2015 , Day of Adoption: 90 days after the adoption of the UN Security Council resolution approving the transaction (July 20, 2015). The day of adoption encourages Iran and the P5 + 1 group to take the steps (outlined below) to fulfill their commitments to fully implement the JCPOA.
      January 16, 2016 Implementation Day: The IAEA certifies that Iran has taken key steps to curtail its nuclear program and has introduced enhanced monitoring. The IAEA implementation day report triggers the lifting of US, EU and UN sanctions.
      October 2023 years, transition day: eight years after the day of adoption (or the IAEA will reach its broader conclusion on Iran's nuclear program, whichever comes first). Transition Day urges UN to lift missile restrictions, Iran to ratify its additional protocol, the EU to lift all remaining nuclear sanctions, the United States to remove certain entities from the sanctioned list, and the United States to demand a legislative end to certain sanctions. ...
      October 2025 adoption day: ten years after adoption day. Cessation Day Terminates Resolution 2231 and Security Council Closes Iran's Nuclear Dossier
      I hope you understand that they will play for another four years and send everyone without GPS
      That's why Trump sent them earlier.

    For a long time, the United States has not unleashed a new war, the Americans are already craving fresh blood like drug addicts ... In Solovyov's program, one of the participants compared the United States to a bicycle, pressed one pedal, that is, he scared some country, robbed it, pressed another pedal, fed his people, and so constantly, because as soon as the pedal is not pressed, the bike stops and falls ...

      It's been a long time since the United States unleashed a new war.
      .
      Soon they will start a cyber-barbarossa against Russia with the introduction of new sanctions ... the official statement has already been made ... so a new war is yet to come.
      Until the United States breaks its neck as in Vietnam, this will continue indefinitely.

        The United States will definitely lose the cyber war against Russia. And not because hackers are worse in the US. But because in Russia it is impossible to turn off the power supply to any of the regions via the Internet. And in the United States, it is very possible to cut down the power supply to the state. An American with a disabled Internet will simply die in a week, and a Russian will only scratch itself.

      Makar, Biden "broke" tradition - every president unleashed a war.
      -In some areas, B-52Hs were escorted by fighters of the Air Forces of Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

    Some kind of stupidity. Pontitsya that two large Boeings were able to reach Iran? So Iran knows about it, Iranian Boeings (though 747) even without refueling reached the United States. If only B-52s could pass along the borders unnoticed. That would be a victory! And so-the Iranians know how to shoot down Boeing-it's very bad, of course, but the Ukrainians showed it. American drones are able to intercept, they also showed it to everyone. In general, parity show-offs, some pretend that they fly and are not afraid, the latter see, aim and also not be afraid.

    That is, flying up to our borders with the transmitters turned off, they are afraid to show Russia the "strength of the United States"

    Seriously, is that what it's called now? "Shit, like shit ..." (from an anecdote) Falling from 13 m is definitely more painful than from 000 m. (Not falling, but logic ... temperature, pressure, speed.) this is unambiguous. fool The strength is in the truth, not in the amount of shit behind the clouds. fool

    If the purpose of this flight was indeed a demonstration, then the main element in it was not the B-52 at all (such a non-stop, non-stop flight of strategists), but just the escort. The B-52 was consistently accompanied by fighters from the Jewish and two Arab countries. This unprecedented combination in BV is intended to demonstrate to Iran a military alliance between the Monarchies and Israel in the light of the threat from a common enemy.

      It is hardly worth considering the defeat of a civilian aircraft, which was not expecting an attack, and even at the same time at arm's length, to be considered a great success for air defense.
