Iran ushers in a big savior! Hardcore allies dispatch 10,000-ton warships to help the Mediterranean
Russia is the number one military power in the world today, and its military strength can compete with the United States. Its navy "Marshall Ustinov" is a heavy guided missile cruiser with strong military deterrence. According to Russian media, the Russian military did not plan in advance for the ship's rush to the Mediterranean, but made an emergency military operation temporarily. As for the purpose of this trip, according to media analysis, the current situation in the Middle East is escalating, and the United States and Iran are likely to have a military confrontation in the region. Therefore, the "Marshall Ustinov" aims to monitor the situation in the region. At the same time, the ship's deployment to the Russian naval base in the Mediterranean can greatly enhance Russia's strength in the Mediterranean waters. In short, it is related to the dangerous situation in the Middle East caused by the current conflict between the United States and Iran.
In less than 10 days recently, the situation in the Middle East has suddenly turned bad. Just in late December, the United States and Iran alternately retaliated with each other. On December 29, the U.S. forces attacked the Iranian-backed Hezbollah brigade on the Iraqi border, causing dozens of deaths and injuries. However, the U.S. military was still domineering. Soon in the early morning of January 3, a missile attack was launched near the Iraqi capital Baghdad International Airport. "Beheading" the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Holy City Brigade Commander Suleimani, and his accompanying people were also unfortunately killed. After the incident, Iran's sentiment was turbulent, and warnings of retaliation against the United States were heard. General Carney, who was ordered to take over Suleimani's military post, even made a vicious remark: Let American corpses spread throughout the Middle East.
Sure enough, on January 8th, Iran launched a thunderous retaliation operation-Operation Martyr Suleimani, which fired dozens of missiles at two military bases in Iraq in one fell swoop, especially against the US Assad Air Force. The base struck a heavy blow, hitting at least 9 missiles, causing damage to multiple military aircraft. According to a statement issued by Iran, the attack resulted in the deaths and injuries of several US military personnel. Such as the sudden launch of such an intensive missile attack on a US military base is really rare. The plausible evidence confirms the stern statement made by Iran's supreme leader Khamenei following the killing of Suleimani: "Severe revenge" against US targets must be conducted directly and publicly by the Iranian army.
In light of Iran's long-term commitment to compete with American forces through "agents", the attack on US military bases and Khamenei's statement showed that Iran has made up its mind to confront the United States, which has led to the United States and Iran The chance of a war between them has increased dramatically. The United States is also stepping up its actions recently. On January 3, the White House ordered the sending of about 700 US troops to the 82nd Division Airborne Division to the Middle East. The next day, there was news of another surge in the Middle East, and it was decided to send 3,000 US troops to the Middle East. It was also revealed that multiple B-52 strategic bombers were to be deployed to Assad Air Force Base in Iraq. There are various signs that the United States and Iran are at war or are about to start.
At this critical moment, Russia, an important player in the Middle East, finally expressed its opinion. On January 7, Russian President Putin made a sudden visit to Syria without prior arrangement, and immediately after arriving, he went to the Russian Command in Syria for the first time, and even received Syria at the Command. President Assad. During the visit, although there were no talks about the death of General Suleimani and the risk of war between the United States and Iran during the meeting, Putin clearly stated that Syria has seen signs of "peaceful recovery". Obviously, Putin's words do not rule out his strong determination to support Iran and jointly expel the US forces in the Middle East.
In fact, at the end of last month, Russia conducted a major military cooperation operation with Iran. From December 27 to 30, Iran held a naval military exercise in the Gulf of Oman, with Russia sending naval forces to participate. During the exercise, US experts unabashedly pointed out that the joint military exercise was both demonstrating its military strength to the United States, and that Iran was trying to win over Russia or jointly form an "anti-NATO alliance". At a time of strained relations between the United States and Iran, Russian naval forces went to Iran's surrounding waters to engage in joint military activities. Recently, the Russian president made another surprise visit to Syria, and the news that the Russian warships went to the Mediterranean Sea was just revealed. Russia's support for Iran is so obvious. It seems that if the United States wants to act lightly again, it must really think twice. (Great Power Sky)
