In the summer of 2018, Iran claimed control of the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz. A territory that has been disputed by the United States. On August 27, 2018 Secretary Pompeo tweeted, “The Islamic Republic of Iran does not control the Strait of Hormuz. The Strait is an international waterway. The United States will continue to work with our partners to ensure freedom of navigation and free flow of commerce in international waterways.” This response and the continued presence of U.S. vessels caused some of Iran’s generals to question the lack of enforcement by Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani.
In the summer of 2019, tensions between Iran and the United States escalated as Iran destroys a U.S. drone in international water. An act that President Trump declared a “last straw”. Additional attacks would be met with a military response. But no further actions were taken by Iran.
On August 4th, 2019, Iran’s General Qassem Soleimani took matters into his own hands and ceased control of key sectors of southern Iran. Bandar Abbas airport, the surrounding areas, and the islands south of it are now under his command. This is a direct threat to any vessel sailing in the Strait of Hormuz. He has defied the President of Iran as well as Iran’s Supreme Leader.
President Hassan Rouhani and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, have started negotiating with the United States to help end this coup in exchange for full cooperation by allowing the United States and her allies to continue to serve in the Persian Gulf. They are also establishing a new nuclear and oil deal that will favor the United States indefinitely.
On August 6th, 2019, the agreement has been established. Operation Saber Thrust is underway. The objective is to find and eliminate General Qassem Soleimani to restore full control to President Hassan Rouhani.
