The Iranian government has just released video footage of the USS Roosevelt aircraft career as her and its escort ships were transversing the Straits of Hormuz. The footage was taken earlier this year in March, however, the conflict between the U.S. and Iran has not been resolved yet.
Since U.S. President Donald Trump opted to step away from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as the Iran nuclear deal, struck between the United States and Iran in mid-2015 claiming that the mentioned deal isn’t sufficient enough to prevent Iran gaining nuclear capability. This came as a surprise to Iranian officials since impartial international observers from the IAEA in all of their periodical reports stated that Iran has abided by the treaty and it is committed to upholding its international obligations.
The decision by the Trump administration came
President Trump, however, has failed to address major concerns of U.S. allies and other nations in his Address
Syrian-Iranian relations have been very good lately, and the AIPAC-controlled Donald Trump-Mike Pence administration (Trump’s speech at AIPAC – full version) (Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem) simply cannot allow an anti-Israel, pro-Syria nuclear Iran with more than 130 million residents making Israeli expansion in the Middle East very problematic.
Currently, Israel is the only Middle Eastern entity who has nuclear weapons, according to a Pentagon report about 200 nuclear warheads and missiles, while other reports

The current government of Iran still enjoys widespread support although Iranians are unhappy and concerned of the recently imposed U.S. sanctions. Due to inflation Iranians
France, Germany (there were also talks about opening a German-owned bank in Iran) and the United Kingdom are especially infuriated by Donald Trump’s decision due to the high volume of investments in Iran made by these governments and their corporate entities. These three countries stand to lose a lot should the current situation be resolved by war. It doesn’t matter how “free” Iran is as long as the country has a similar capitalist system under the same fractional-reserve private banking system.
The Iranian government has been preparing since the late ’70s, early ’80s for an all-out confrontation with the United States by building bunkers and underground military installations (video) along with expanding their anti-air and naval capabilities. Of course, the current Iranian navy is no match for the U.S. Navy, however, they can still cause massive headaches and delay coordinated operations by months.
Israel is widely known to fund extremist groups and Muslim terrorism worldwide and using those groups as an excuse to gain more land, regional power and get more assistance from the United States.

Solving One Problem, Gaining an Opportunity
By taking down Iran or reducing it to the current level of Libya or Afghanistan the Israeli and the U.S. administrations will solve the problem of a nuclear Iran threatening the regional status quo and Israeli military superiority.
Due to Iran’s “convenient” geographical location it would present an opportunity for the United States and its allies to destabilize Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkmenistan by employing military contractors and radical terrorist groups they could build U.S. and U.K. military bases and weaken the public order in Russia.
The end goal of this plan is to have a change of government in Russia and in China in order to solidify U.S. global dominance.
The United States Army has perhaps never been more ready for a major conflict ever before, but the state itself is currently struggling with a massive national debt affecting everything from the state, corporations and average Americans. Politicians in Washington are just what they are, politicians, no statesman in sight. A real statesman would aim to get control of U.S. finances and start discussions on how to resolve the debt crisis – the U.S. Congress is already considering ways to raise the debt ceiling.
Washington tries to keep up the status quo by orchestrating freedom of navigation operations. Freedom of navigation operations involves U.S. Navy ships moving into disputed seas without coordination or communication and engaging in live fire practice. Beijing strongly believes that it needs to heighten up its presence in the South China Sea in order to prevent a Western preemptive strike on Chinese soil. Because of the aggressive stance of the two nations just a few hours ago, a U.S. Navy and a Chinese warship nearly collided on the South China Sea both coalitions blaming the other for the incident (western perspective – eastern perspective).
On April 2016, China has managed to lock in the Dollar’s death, which will affect the global financial system as a whole, so they the U.S. is quickly running out of time. China is currently very cautious with its power over the United States because the wrong timing could undo 20 years of Chinese development. As days pass by Chinese patience is running out.
Meanwhile, Russia and China are clearly not ready yet for a full-scale military conflict with the West they still need another decade (to tighten their alliance, build up their militaries, expand their agriculture and domestic markets) to get there.
