One of the events that has caused concern and concern in the international community is the intensified relations between the US and Iran that have escalated even further after the execution of Iranian leader, Kassem Suleimani, by the US and subsequent bomber attacks. using missiles against US bases (Ain al-Asad and Irbil) in Iraq. However, there is now talk of a calmer next day in relations between the two countries, as both seem to have achieved their goal, with Iran stating that it is not seeking a further escalation in relations with the US. On the other hand, US President Donald Trump has said he will impose sanctions on Tehran, which he can do through a variety of means: submarines or missiles Tomahauk launchers that could hit enemy targets from miles away, B-2 smuggled bombers to crush high altitude enemy air strikes, untraceable and poaching F22s and F35s to attack enemy warplanes, with long range sensors as well as airplanes. Still, warships would launch F35Bs, carriers would launch F-15, while the Pentagon could launch even tested ones mid-range missiles. Iran, for its part, is known to possess a number of specific air defense weapons, the most dangerous of which is the Russian S-300, the most modern variant of which is S-300PMU2. This weapon, though by no means surpasses the American one B-2, F-22s or F-35s, it is important that it can reach 124 miles and travel at an altitude of 27 kilometers. The exact state of modernization of these weapons, however, is not known. The most advanced Russian air defenses, while often undercut by Russia itself in the state media, are increasingly able to detect even some secret aircraft using a wider range of detection frequencies, faster processing power and enhanced digital networking target data across multiple nodes. However, it is by no means clear that these advanced air defenses can really threaten the most sophisticated US military equipment.
The beginning of a mass attack could be done with tanks, infantry vehicles, and even scattered units ready to attack in urban areas. This would require close air support with drones, fighters Apache helicopters and low-flying aircraft (aircraft A-10 and high speed F-35 capable of ground attack). Air superiority would also pave the way for them helicopters, The transport aircraft C-130 and drones.
Iran may present some air threats, including some of its own aircraft. Indicatively, Globalfirepower.com estimates that Iran has more than 140 fighters in a total of about 500 US elements. In addition, National Interest reports that Iran has six F-14 Tomcat fighter aircraft that have been acquired for years. An air carrier or other air strikes launched, such as Ospreys or F-35Bs, would probably operate from the Persian Gulf. Iran regularly uses small boats to attack the narrow and extremely dangerous Strait of Hormuz, an area bordering the Iranian coastline, which serves as a key crossing point between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman. Owning firearms such as the Tomahawk missiles (which can travel up to 900 miles) would allow the US to plan the attack with less risk of Iranian counterattack. As of 2019, Iran has had about 90 small patrol boats, according to Globalfirepower.com. In conclusion, the Iranian military presents very serious air, land and sea threats.
In summary, the prospect of a war between the US and Iraq seems more plausible because of the killing of Suleyman, with the Pentagon saying the US is prepared for any possible involvement with Iran and is in Iran's "hand" to Iran. choose to de-escalate their relations or conflict. At the same time, he emphasizes that the American side is ready to hold talks with Iran and to restore their relations. In contrast, Iran's ambassador to the UN rejected the US proposal for co-operation, given that Tramp announced the imposition of new sanctions on Tehran.
His death Kasem Suleimani caused a variety of reactions among which the outbreak was security issues. Always hackers were trying to infiltrate US computer networks. Their illegal activity increased sharply after the assassination of the Iranian leader, but with limited success. More specifically, their efforts to restrict federal, state and local government websites have increased by 50% and then accelerated, Cloudflare wrote. Within 48 hours, the attacks almost tripled. Its CEO CloudFlareMatthew Prince described the increase as "statistically significant" in an interview with CNN. He added that the actual number of attempts was probably higher as the company had a limited view of the wider Internet.
Thus, US officials have advised businesses to be vigilant as tensions with Iran continue either directly or indirectly. The Ministry of Homeland Security issued warnings and reported terrorist acts in a report on the danger of Iranian cyberattacks. Organization officials briefed members of Congress on Iran's capabilities in cyberspace and the possible ones vulnerabilities of American goals.
Experts believe that Iran has steadily improved its cyber capabilities. This results in the country being considered a secondary digital threat after stronger countries - such as Russia and China- and dangerous enough to cause significant local damage. A striking example is the fact that Iran has previously been accused of shutting down banking sites and deleting data about computers belonging to the oil giant Giant Saudi Aramco.
