The United States and Iran compete to project their influence on the strategic Middle East board. Since the 20th century, Washington has been weaving a network of alliances or close relations with countries in the region. In the 21st century, its Armed Forces have fought wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Despite the withdrawal in these conflicts, the US has a remarkable military deployment at multiple bases in the area.

In parallel, since its founding in 1979, the Islamic Republic has cultivated a network of Allied militias, from the Lebanese Hezbollah to the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces, through the Syrian pro-regime paramilitaries and, to a lesser extent, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad or the Yemeni Huthi. For all of them, the assassinated general Qasem Soleimani was the key interlocutor responsible for the operations abroad of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
