Since the death of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani
on January 3rd as a result of an airstrike at the Baghdad International
Airport, Iraq, there has been great consternation about how (and when)
will Iran retaliate.
Apart from the recent attack against U.S. military
facilities in Iraq, it is widely assumed that Tehran’s future actions
move will take place in a geographically neighboring area (namely the
Middle East and North Africa) against other American interests. However,
there is a certain part of the world where there is an Iranian presence
that should not be overlooked in determining where the counterstrike
will take place.
