Between the U.S. and Iran, tension is rising in the Strait of Hormuz

The tone has suddenly changed and this time could be quite different if one believes the rumors circulating in Washington DC as in the Middle East. The tension between Iran and the United States is increasing drastically as each camp tests the other after the attack against two oil tankers in the waters of the Strait of Hormuz.

The stalemate of Saudi Arabia in Yemen against the Houthis reportedly close to Iran and the exit of the United States from the Iranian nuclear deal signed in July 2015 have stopped the fragile erection of a new precarious equilibrium in the region to the point that the word “war” is sometimes pronounced.

The U.S. government’s statement that a drone from its Navy was shot down by an Iranian missile shows that Tehran has military capabilities that could well water the mill of those who want an aggressive approach from the administration Trump.
