In modern society, oil has become a very important strategic resource.Almost every country's development is based on oil.But because of U.S. sanctions against Iran, global oil prices have gone up a lot, causing a lot of trouble for many countries.
Iran is an oil giant, and after being hit by us sanctions, the west has had to turn its attention to Russia.According to recent media reports, Russian President vladimir putin has announced that he will suspend oil supplies to European countries in order to repair the pipeline to Europe.Military experts said the move would completely cut off the lifeline of European oil, as if Mr. Putin had finally had enough.
It is worth noting that Russia plans not only to suspend oil supplies, but also to raise oil prices.Oil prices are expected to rise by $7.30 a tonne, meaning the 28 European countries in the pipeline will pay Russia tens of billions more.Although Russia is an oil power, it has been subject to western sanctions.Now it can take advantage of this opportunity to make a fortune, which the United States naturally does not want to see.
Russia has always been the focus of America's containment. Once Russia becomes strong, America's international standing will be threatened, so America has been squeezing Russia's strategic space.If Russia emerges as the biggest winner in the us-iran standoff, it will surely cause more trouble for the us.
The United States cannot make Russia strong. It is not America's intention to fight against Iran.The constant pressure of the United States on Iran is actually a hope that Iran will compromise, but the United States did not expect Iran to be so tough, more inclined to confront the United States and do not want to bow to the United States.
Iran will not actively confront the United States, and the United States is less likely to confront Iran.If the two sides do fight, Iran will block the hormuz crossing, the americans will lose a lot of money and resources, and the russians will take the opportunity to raise the price of oil.But America has always been tough, and compromise is not American.So the United States is struggling.
