As we all know, apart from Antarctica and Australia, other continents in the world are With the strait or canal as the boundary, some demarcation points are well located, and a large number of freighters pass through each year, thus forming a prosperous city on both sides of the strait or canal, which has a positive effect on the economic development of related countries. Among these dividing points, the most famous is probably the Sea of Hormuz.It is the only maritime export from the Persian Gulf of the world’s oil depots. It has an important impact on global stability and development. In addition, Iran often threatens to block the Strait of Hormuz in its confrontation with the United States. Frequently appearing in the news, it can be described as famous.
According to the website of Iranian News and Television, the Iranian high-ranking official Hasi Mi said that the Iraqi Parliament is planningThe reason for levying tolls on foreign freighters passing through the Strait of Hormuz is that the Iraqi side has made great efforts to ensure the smooth flow of the Strait, which should naturally be rewarded. Further details were also passed by a member of the Iraqi Parliament. It is disclosed that the levy of tolls across the Strait may be limited to those countries that follow the US sanctions against Iran. If their freighters refuse to pay, Iran may take certain compulsory measures. Of course, this proposal is still under discussion, and whether it can be implemented is still unknown, but its target is obviously the United States.
It is reported that after Iran shot down U.S. drones not long ago, Trump increased The sanctions against Iran have caused the Iranian currency to depreciate by two-thirds. The pressure on its economy can be imagined. If Iran is not a highly cohesive country and the authorities have a strong military power, it is not only possible internally. Turmoil has occurred, and external armed forces are very likely to take advantage of this. Therefore, if Iran wants to maintain internal stability, it must take the initiative to attack the United States and establish a powerful foreign enemy. This will always be the only magic weapon to maintain the stability of the country. Obviously there are considerations in this regard. Of course, tolls are also quite attractive.
In addition, the Iraqi authorities have recently broken through the provisions of the Iran nuclear agreement and increased the abundance of enriched uranium, although it is still far from being able to be used for weapons. , But it is still a huge leap. If it cannot be contained, the situation in the Middle East is likely to be completely chaotic. Fortunately, Europe, France, Germany and other countries are very enthusiastic about this. They did not complain as much as the United States, but chose to take the initiative. Negotiating with Iran, trying to continue to maintain the Iran nuclear agreement. After all, the United States is on the other side of the Atlantic, while Europe is not far from Iran.Iran has really played fire, and the biggest losses will only be European countries, which of course do not want to see this scenario.
