US vs Iran

Hybrid War

Iranian Missile Arsenal

There are many ways of disrupting the flow of oil through the Persian Gulf, of which hitting oil tankers is one. We have already seen that by using air, land or ship based anti-ship missiles the Iranian forces can stop the oil tankers from entering or leaving the Persian Gulf. However if the war really gets nasty and US somehow manages to clear the Persian Gulf of the Iranian ships and missiles, the US has to then deal with the problem of Iranian missiles. The Iranians’ objective, in an eventual war with US, is to stop the flow of oil. Hitting oil tankers is one way, hitting oil-wells/facilities is another way. Here Iranians could use their tactical and strategic missiles to hit some or all of the oil facilities. This will be on the Iranians’ agenda if they suspect that anyone of the neighbouring countries is assisting the US. US has bases in both Qatar and Bahrain. It has also a very large presence in Kuwait, so we can be certain that these countries will be hit. US bases in Iraq especially the Green Zone will be hit especially hard.
