Iran is a country that is deeply rooted in the ancient history of the human race, dating back to before the biblical times.

The isolation that the country is facing since the Islamic revolution in 1979 has seen the nation loosening diplomatic ties with a big portion of the globe.

The historical land has now been in a state of tension with several world powers, allying with its neighbor Russia, fearing an American preemptive strike on its territories.

The United States of America has been assaulting the Central-Asian country with unconventional means since the abrupt regime change that took place nearly 4 decades ago.

Warning ignored

According to state officials, The USS Mahan, an American armed forces navy ship, fired a warning flare toward an Iranian Revolutionary Guard vessel coming near it in the Persian Gulf. The incident is one of several that happened in the recent years as escalations between the two nations have escalated on many fronts.

A spokesman for the Bahrain-based 5th Fleet, Lt. Ian McConnaughey, clarified to the public in a press conference: ”Mahan made several attempts to contact the Iranian vessel by bridge-to-bridge radio, issuing warning messages and twice sounding the internationally recognized danger signal of five short blasts with the ship’s whistle, as well as deploying a flare to determine the Iranian vessel’s intentions”

Unconditional support

The diplomatic bilateral relations between the two nations saw recently an unexpected downturn that was meant to be prevented by the Iran nuclear deal framework.

The new administration of the United States of America, presided by Mr. Donald Trump, has shown signs of unconditional support for their closest ally Israel which is the hardline enemy of the Jewish state.

The Israeli administration has been advocating a tougher stance on the Persian nation since long which was their main clashing point with the Obama administration.
