VS overwegen scala aan opties tegen Iran
June 17, 2019 -- Minister van Buitenlandse Zaken Mike Pompeo heeft gezegd dat de VS
“een compleet scala aan opties overweegt” bij oplopende spanningen met
Iran, maar benadrukt internationale diplomatie rond nieuw militair ingrijpen.
Despite hard-line factions in both Iran and the United States that would like to pursue confrontation, both countries will remain keen to avoid a major war with each other, according to U.S.-based intelligence firm Stratfor
Nevertheless, the risk of miscalculation and escalation will remain high, particularly given Iran's force dispositions and conflict strategy, as both countries ramp up their military preparations.
A military confrontation between the U.S. and Iran would have regional and global economic and energy consequences.
