Drone For Drone = War: What is next in the U.S. - Iran the Gulf Episode

Recommended Posts

There is no doubt: everything that happens in the Gulf doesn't t smell good. The escalation between U.S. and Iran has got a new level: we are not just talking about “verbal war”, now we have results of “military” action. At first the Iranian Special Guard has drop U.S. drone, yesterday U.S. Navy has sent clear message - they destroyed Iranian drone in the Gulf. Meanwhile, one Iranian vessel and one UK vessel are under the control of “the other side”. Straight Hormuz is still open, but it gets hot ... Dancing on the brink ... Definitely, no one with 100 percent can say how things are under control over there... in fact, as someone said, for war is needed one ..

This is gravely concerning. From previous experiences it's not hard to conclude that things are going in the "wrong direction"...

The question that immediately arises is whether Iran will respond to the U.S. shootdown. In recent weeks, Iran has continued to implement threats to Persian Gulf shipping as a cornerstone of its response to U.S. sanctions. Mullahs are a threat for peace...

Drone for drone is not war. Shooting at ships or manned aircraft and the bombing of targets in Iran is. May be questionable if US sinks some fast boats trying to hijack an oil tanker. Oil sanctions are crippling Iranian economy and $ to spend on their terrorist friends. Iran will have to bake a cliche in 6 to 10 months, attack US assets or negotiate. If they negotiate they only lose face. If they attack could lose their navy air force missle defense system refining capacity and ability to ship any oil by destroyed terminals. Unless Trump backs down on sanction (not likely)Iran will choose negotiations.

Iran needs money, badly. No money leads to internal unrest. Getting Iran back to the negotiations will bring them finance, help and some other "stimulus" they (their people) will ask for.  If official, neutral, objective audits did take place, why can't their findings be accepted? How come Europe and the US have opposite opinions anyway? A war will not end the current threat. It only will make Iran more keen to get one. 

So if drone for drone =war, listening for listening = ?
