Iran Allegedly Prepping Up For Cyberwar To Cripple United States Forces

When it comes to tactical warfare, there is no doubt that the United States forces has what it takes to win a big battle. This has already been proven countless of times throughout history. This is also not to mention how far the US military technology has advanced over the years. With the sheer power that the United States had let out during World War II, which is more than 70 years ago, the country’s capacity to obliterate its foes at this point in time is unimaginable.

However, aside from technological advancements, a lot of things have also changed since the last World War. Now, with threats that another World War might erupt with the tension between USA and Iran, there are reports that the potential battle will not be fought solely on physical ground. There is a possibility that the brewing war will also happen in cyberspace, something that Iran is reportedly gaining the upper hand. This time, this is not just a showdown of which side has the best drones.

USA Must Be Ready For Cyberattacks Coming From Iran

One thing that the world’s superpowers like the United States seem to be forgetting that there are many ways for a country to win a war, aside from the usual battle on the ground. In fact, in this ongoing friction with Iran, cybersecurity researchers and experts have warned that Tehran-based hackers are currently looking for weaknesses in big American companies, which they can easily hack and gain top secret information to be used in Iran’s favor.

In recent years, the Iranian government has been accused of funding high-profile online attacks against American countries. In fact, between 2011 and 2013, suspected Iranian hackers set their eyes on US-based banks that include JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Capital One. What they did is they introduced huge traffic to the banks’ computer networks, forcing them to go offline and cost millions of dollars of losses due to crippled banking operations country-wide.

In a similar case in 2018, a ransomware attack targetted the city of Atlanta, which successfully crippled the government operations that led police officers to write their reports by hand. These are just some of the ways in which Iran can gain the advantage in the potential war against USA, which is to weaken the United States forces with cyberattacks.

As Conflict With Iran Intensifies, Will The Senate Be Swayed To Give Trump’s Impeachment A Go?

In the first few days of 2020, we were already shocked with how much the political events turned out that threatens to shaken up the entire world. For one, the United States of America has found itself at the brink of a possible great war against a Middle East superpower, Iran. This is not to mention the internal conflict that the United States has to take care of, which is the impeachment of the current US President, Donald Trump.

The whole world was shocked by the rather historic impeachment of Trump in Congress, which makes him one step away from being removed from the highest seat of power. Granted, the rest of the impeachment proceedings are not yet set in stone, and the Senate will get to decide whether Trump will have more days in the White House or he will be officially kicked out of the government post. Now, with the country facing a threat of war, chances are the US leaders would want to figure out a way to ease the pressure. Thus, it is possible that whatever verdict the Senators will give on Trump’s impeachment, the brewing war with Iran might just be a very important consideration.

Senate Might Be Pressured By The Public To Impeach Trump In Order To Stop A Crippling War

Whether we deny it or not, it is evident that the United States is not at its fittest condition to enter another period of war. Unlike the time of former President George W. Bush with the Iraq War, Trump’s administration is filled with internal issues that the Americans would rather see the government focus on the country first before meddling with international conflicts.

At this point, Trump has been very vocal about fighting it out with Iran after the latter threatened to finish off the US Army based in the Middle East. The reason for Iran’s threat is the death of its top military commander during a US air strike earlier this month. The Trump-led US forces have been unapologetic, and Trump himself even taunted Iran with his harsh remarks. If only Trump’s comments were just something out of a phone app for prank calling, then we can all just laugh at them, but they were not.

Some people think that Trump is only making matters worse, and if you ask the Americans today, they would rather not participate in another war. Now that the impeachment proceedings are on its way and the Democrats have successfully pushed for Trump’s impeachment in the House of Representatives, it would appear that Trump’s removal from office is one way to ease the tension between the US and Iran. Republican Congressmen were rumored to have pulled a stunt to delay the impeachment, but Trump’s fate now lies in the Senate.

Uncertainty In Trump’s Bid For Reelection In 2020 Increases With Immigration, Trade Issues

It cannot be denied that US President Donald Trump has made a lot of changes since he first assumed the highest post in the country in 2017. One of the hottest issues that plagued his first few years of presidency is the new immigration policies that target undocumented migrants. His measures are questioned due to probably violation of basic human rights. Aside from tighter immigration rules, Trump also began to reshape US trade practice, claiming to bring to country back to the top as the best market in the world.

Now that the 2020 presidential election is fast approaching, many people wonder whether Trump’s controversial acts of attempting to make America great again would pay off. However, as the country still awaits the positive change of Trump’s recent actions, his chances of winning another term as president of the United States are dwindling down.

‘Heartless’ Stance On Illegal Immigrants Could Paint Him A Bad Picture

The Trump administration’s move to separate the undocumented migrants from their children was widely panned not only by the people in the United States, but also by the international audience. The world has witnessed the children detained inside detention camps, while their captured parents are being sent to the country where they came from, leaving the future of their children in uncertainty. Aside from the fact that separating innocent and helpless children from their parents is cruel enough, findings of various human rights group reveal that the children living inside the detention centers are suffering from unbearable living conditions.

With all these in consideration, it would be difficult for Trump to clear his image as a good president of a country that is known for embracing diversity.

At this point, even his allies tend to have different views from him, like some GOP senators starting to show support for climate change actions that are against Trump’s opinion. This is not a good news for a president who is seeking reelection.

Another Recession Could End Trump’s Reelection Bid

Economists have also warned against President Trump’s ongoing trade war with China, citing data that the country has so much to lose if the world market do not go in favor of the US. With Trump putting the country’s economy at stake, there is a chance that another harrowing recession, just like in 2008, will take place. If another recession does occur, looking back in history, presidents who seek for reelection while the country is facing recession often fail. If only the country’s economy has a special security system in place, just like what Ring vs Arlo can provide to our homes, then we wouldn’t be looking at another possible recession in the near future.
