The newest conflict between Iran and the United States has roots to a long simmering distrust between the two countries. This situation is not that different than past disputes except Iran has shown an increasing effort to kill Americans and cause disruption to U.S. presence in the Middle East. In the span of one month, the U.S. Embassy was attacked which resulted in a targeted drone strike on an Iranian terrorist, but the retaliation did not stop there. Iran’s inaccurate airstrikes on U.S. stationed troops resulted in a plane accident. These chronological events have brought the world to question: what will the future relationship of the U.S. and Iran look like, and will there be another retaliation?
