The number of confirmed cases in the epidemic exceeded 900,000, but the U.S. military suddenly launched a violent air raid, making it the first overseas

Recently, there have been no signs of improvement in the New Crown Epidemic in the United States. As of 11 a.m. Eastern Time on the 24th, the cumulative number of confirmed cases in the United States is close to 900,000, and the cumulative number of deaths has exceeded 50,000. As the epidemic continues to spread, the number of US soldiers infected is also increasing, so the Pentagon announced earlier that it would stop all US military activities overseas. However, under such circumstances, the U.S. military has suddenly dispatched a large number of F-15 fighter jets and drones to carry out a large-scale bombing of the southern region of Kirkuk Province in Iraq. I think there are several reasons for this. 1. The diversion of domestic conflicts is affected by the new crown epidemic and the Trump administration ’s ineffectiveness in combating the epidemic has hit the US economy and people ’s livelihood. Therefore, Trump encourages the people to resume work and production, and refuses to isolate at home. Although there are many supporters, there are also many opponents. The contradiction between the US federal government and the states, the refusal to approve of the isolation of the people, and the intensified conflict are very unfavorable for Trump’s re-election. Therefore, in order to divert domestic contradictions, downplay the negative impact of the federal government’s weak epidemic resistance, and to fight terrorists, it is easy to win voter support in the country, so Trump chose the stronghold of air strikes at this time. 2. Testing Iran’s reaction Everyone knows that the United States has long wanted to get rid of the Iranian nail. In fact, since the assassination of senior Iranian generals at the beginning of the year, it has been continuously testing Iran’s reaction. Although it can be said that winning the war with Iran as the world’s first military power is undoubtedly a win, but Iran is not a terrorist organization such as IS after all, and the US military will also suffer certain losses. The target of this US airstrike was precisely on the northwestern border of Iran. On the one hand, it was possible to take advantage of the opportunity to investigate the defensive forces of the northwestern border of Iran. On the other hand, it was possible to test Iran’s response to this operation. At the same time, the current new crown epidemic situation in Iran is not optimistic. So far, the cumulative diagnosis has reached nearly 90,000 and more than 5,000 people have died. At present, Iran is fully fighting the epidemic, and the military has also dispatched a large number of armed forces to assist. There is no time to take care of foreign affairs. If the US military really uses force against Iran at this time, Iran may also be caught off guard. 3. Take the opportunity to deter Middle Eastern oil-producing countries. Everyone knows that international oil prices have been declining all the time in recent days. There is no shortage of Russian and Middle Eastern oil-producing countries joining forces to crack down on American oil companies. The United States naturally knows this. As a close ally of the United States, the Middle East oil producer headed by Saudi Arabia, the United States will never allow them to keep oil prices low for a long time, otherwise oil companies in the United States will face failure. Therefore, by taking advantage of this opportunity to send troops, you can deter Saudi Arabia. The meaning behind it may be to tell Saudi Arabia: If you are not obedient, you will be beaten. In any case, the current economic situation of the United States may not support the United States in launching a large-scale military operation, but it is possible to use this small-scale military operation to fight for its own interests. The United States has also had such examples in the past. Many netizens say that Trump is a lunatic and can do everything. The next step does not rule out the possibility of using force against Iran and Venezuela, as long as the United States believes that it can obtain greater benefits.
