The Iran-American conflict: was not like this since Vietnam

“for the First time since the war in Vietnam someone had dared to strike at the American bases,” — said in the broadcast of the special edition of the program “60 minutes” on TV channel “Russia 1” the war correspondent of VGTRK Evgeny Poddubny, commenting on the missile attack of Iran on two American military installations in Iraq. He believes that Iran have achieved: the face has kept the red flag of revenge over mosque in city of Qom knowingly raised. “It is clear that the Iranians are not interested in further escalation of the conflict, and therefore the impact was so limited. It was a symbol. A symbol that the next time will be different”, — said Evgeny Poddubny.

In turn, correspondent in USA Valentin Bogdanov said that us President Donald trump is also in no hurry to declare war on Iran in response to the impact on the bases. January 8, the whole world waited for the statement of the US President on the situation with the attack of Iran to the American airbase in Iraq. Trump said that Iran did not cause significant damage to the infrastructure of bases and do not kill any soldier, so retaliation from the US will not.

“the Events in the middle East is a new problem for trump, who fell on his lumpy,” — said Valentin Bogdanov. He spoke about the proposal of the speaker of the house of representatives, Nancy Pelosi to limit the powers of the trump in Iran. In response, the US President called Pelosi crazy.

According to the U.S. Constitution, Congress can allow or deny the presidency to wage war abroad. In fact, however, the US President has broad powers to conduct foreign military operations.

January 9 in new York, opened the meeting of the UN security Council, which discusses the heightened crisis in the middle East. Iranian foreign Minister Javad Zarif on him could not come — the US has not given him a visa. Thus, according to Bogdanov, the Americans again broke diplomatic obligations. In their personals interests, they do not stop at nothing.
