Securitization of Iran's drone capability; Another sign that America has not changed its behavior

The US's main strategy is to engage Iran in an endless cycle of security cases, extensive sanctions and endless negotiations in order to contain Iran at the lowest cost in the region, on its consideration.

NOURNEWS - According to US media reports, a number of members of the House of Representatives from both the Republicans and Democrats parties proposed a plan to counter Iran's drone program, on Tuesday.

Democrat Gregory Meeks, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Republican Michael McCaul, Democrat Ted Deutch, and Republican Joe Wilson have introduced a bill called the Stop Iranian Drones Act (SIDA) in coordination with existing US sanctions against Iran's weapons program, also including the supply, sale or transfer of UAVs.

The drafters of the anti-Iranian plan said the purpose of the Stop Iranian Drones Act (SIDA) was to prevent the Islamic Republic and its resistance forces from accessing drones that could be used to attack the United States or its allies.

Gregory Meeks also claimed; Iranian deadly drones endanger US security and regional peace!

He also said that the recent attacks by Iranian drones on US forces, merchant ships and against regional partners, along with the export of drone technology to areas where there is conflict, is a serious threat.

Noting that the "Stop Iranian Drones Act (SIDA)" is in line with current US sanctions law, Gregory Meeks said the plan sends a strong message to the international community that the United States will not tolerate government support for Iran's drone program.

In this regard, a few months ago, in early April of this year, General "Kenneth F. McKenzie", the commander of American terrorists based in West Asia known as CENTCOM, said in a written testimony to the Armed Forces Committee of the US House of Representatives: "Iranian-backed Houthis in Yemen have targeted military, infrastructure and civilian targets in Saudi Arabia since January with more than 150 missiles and drone strikes."

McKenzie warned that Iran's widespread use of small and medium-sized drones for reconnaissance and attack operations meant that for the first time since the Korean War, the United States had lost its air superiority for operations in the region.

"Unless we can find a network to detect and defeat this superiority of drone use, Iran will remain aggressive in the region," the CENTCOM terrorist commander said.

Simultaneously with these hostile atmospheres, the military and political figures of the Zionist regime also talked about the drone capability of Iran, together with the American officials, in order to provide security.

Israeli War Minister Benny Gantz recently spoke of the dangers of Iranian drones for the security of the West Asian region and the world, and called on Westerners to take joint action to impose restrictions on Iran's drone industry.

The US Treasury Department also sanctioned four Iranian citizens, including the commander of IRGC's aerospace unit, along with two other Iranian companies, for collaborating with the Iranian drone project.

It seems that, contrary to the apparent statements of US officials that they are trying to reduce tensions between Tehran and Washington, they are working with some European countries, especially Britain, to try to reopen new security cases against Iran to justify the extension of a series of current unjust sanctions, or even its escalation, is in contradiction with Washington's claims.

The Americans have shown that they have no real interest in ending their issues and conflicts with Iran.

The US's main strategy is to engage Iran in an endless cycle of security cases, extensive sanctions and endless negotiations in order to contain Iran at the lowest cost in the region, on its consideration.

General Mckenzie's remarks about the imbalance in the region and the inability of the US military to take full control of the entire West Asian sky due to the breadth and complexity of Iran's drone capability are clear signs of a shift in equations in the region.

Saudi Arabia's widespread failure in the Yemeni war and the defeat of the naval war project against Iran, which included US-British piracy and Israeli attacks on Iranian-owned and private-sector oil tankers and merchant ships, are all signs of Iran's widespread retaliation. In this regard, the United States and its allies are announcing a shift in the security balance in the West Asian region.

But can the Americans succeed on the Iranian drone issue?

In the current situation, as a first step, as in previous projects aimed at securitization of Iran's environment, the language of panic and the media and speech apparatus of American, European and Zionist politicians are working, to gradually raise the issue of Iran's drone capability in a legal process as a threat, introducing it as an acute for regional and world stability.

It should be noted that, unlike the nuclear issue, we do not face a global disarmament regimes with a global consensus or, like the missile issue, a control regime agreed upon by some major powers in the form of the MTCR.

The issue of UAVs as a military tool in the context of arms control is a completely new case, about which there is still little legal literature, and Westerners are trying to establish a legal procedure by intimidating the world against Iran's UAV capability.

In the last two decades, drones have been used more as a military tool in the West Asian region, and in recent years Turkey, Pakistan and the Zionist regime have begun to expand their drone industry, in addition to Iran.

Given this, although the Americans can not provoke a global consensus against Tehran on Iran's drone capability, such as the nuclear issue, or bring some Western countries with them, such as the missile issue, they are trying to maintain the status quo on Iran's security case as an option to take advantage of it.

The US withdrawal from Afghanistan, the inability of its Arab partners to successfully end the Yemeni war, and the failure of the naval war project with Iran are all signs of a shift in the security equation in the West Asian region.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly stated that its military equipment is manufactured entirely for deterrence and for purely defensive purposes, and that foreign military intervention in the last two decades on the borders of Iran with Afghanistan and Iraq is a sign of Tehran's right defense strategy that is neither negotiable nor will it involve disarmament.
