Retired Lt. Colonel Dakota Wood with the Heritage Foundation explained why Iran is planning on breaking the nuclear deal.

“This is actually nuclear blackmail,” he said.

This is an indirect approach to get the United States attention.

“By attaching tankers it will drive up the cost of oil,” he said on Iran causing pain to allies of the U.S.

Ultimately, Iran’s endgame is to cause pain for others in order to get under the skin of the United States.

In the great global contest with the United States, Iran may get diplomatic people to side with them if they make us out to be the enemy.
