Since the Global Hawk drone was shot down by Iran, U.S.-Iranian relations have deteriorated suddenly, but it seems that the U.S. is still standing still. There are speculations about what the United States is worrying about for its delay in using force against Iran. According to a report by the British Daily Star on July 7, the US Pentagon had conducted a sand table exercise against Iran. The project cost 250 million US dollars, or about 1.7 billion yuan, but Iran won the military exercise. Seventeen years ago, the plan code-named "Millennium Challenge" was implemented. At that time, the Pentagon assumed Iraq or Iran as the target of future military conflicts and conducted military exercises such as computer simulations and actual military exercises, but the results were disappointing for the United States.
Actually, if Iran can be defeated, the United States will There are still many differences. But before the United States prepared to attack Iran, the United States first conducted a deduction, but the results were not satisfactory. It is reported that the project is the Pentagon’s most expensive military project to date. In the deduction, the blue representative is the U.S. military. , The representative of the red side is Iran. The main task of the blue side is to destroy the red side’s weapons of mass destruction, and to control the waterway, to completely eliminate the red side’s power in the Middle East. The red side’s task is to maintain its rule in the Middle East Status and annihilate the domestic opposition forces.
In this regard, the Pentagon officially announced that the result was a complete victory for the US military, but then a dramatic change. A senior Pentagon officer adjusted the rules of the exercise. As a result, Iran gained the upper hand and won the final victory. This incident made the US Pentagon face disgraceful.
According to reports, in the deduction, the US Marine Corps commander Paul led the red team. His strategy In a short period of time, through Iran’s military power in the Persian Gulf, the U.S. Navy warship was sunk quickly and quickly. Although the Red side had certain disadvantages in the deduction process, Paul relied on his Vietnam War experience to let The blue team led by the U.S. military lost its combat effectiveness. In addition, at the beginning of the game, the blue team asked the red team to surrender, but Paul ignored it and tried to fight the blue team by preemptive tricks.
Although I don’t know how much the deduction was mixed ""Water", but it did humiliate the United States. The project may also be a trick played by the Pentagon to magnify Iran’s military threat and seek more military expenditure from Congress. From the current situation in the United States and Iran, the United States There are two faces. One is that the United States does not want to go to war with Iran at all, and is worried that it will be caught in a military quagmire. The other is that although the United States has been engaged in a "war of words" with Iran, it has also been privately deploying troops to the Middle East. At present, Iran. It is also very hard-spirited to increase the abundance of enriched uranium production. Now that war is launched against Iran, the United States really has no confidence. And for Trump, if the United States is deeply trapped in the Middle East, it will also have a major impact on his next presidential election.
It is reported that 17 years ago, the "Millennium Challenge" "The results have been submitted to the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States. After that, the United States launched a war against Iraq. As we all know, the U.S. forces were caught in the quagmire of war in Iraq. The results of this exercise against Iran also made the Pentagon more cautious. Less, so as not to repeat the same mistakes.
