Saudi Arabia and Bab Al Mandab

The Saudi Minister of Energy, Industries, and Mines recently announced that the country’s oil transportation will be restored through the Strait of Baghdad. Saudi Arabia, meanwhile, said it would temporarily stop shipping oil through the Strait of Bhalbalk, due to what Ansarullah attacked with its two oil tankers.

Saudi Arabia was explicitly trying to blame Bab al-Mandab on the one hand for Ansarullah’s behaviour and, on the other hand, by condoning Ansarullah and Iran in a situation where Iranian political and military officials threatened to prevent oil exports from the region under certain conditions. To increase the pressure on the United States and some Western actors on Iran and Ansarullah. Therefore, while Riyadh never paid the damage caused by Ansarullah attacks, this time they spoke of oil tankers carrying two million barrels of oil claiming that the two tankers were attacked by Ansarullah.

The fact is that the Saudi decision to cut oil exports from Bab Al Mandab was not taken seriously and effectively broke. The most important sign for this claim is the assessment of the price of oil. If this threatening Saudi decision was valid, it would have to show its effect on oil prices very soon, but that did not. At the media level, this decision was not much in line with, and other effective actors did not express concern over the security of the Strait.


How to interpret?

Political commentary

The writer and author comment on the commentary on an event, which this interpretation can not be as it wishes. In order to impress and understand the situation of the subject and the news, one should observe some of the articles that I try to name the position of each section as a title. To get a proper understanding of the text format of a political commentary. But it should be taken into account that these frameworks are not permanent. Only standard forms for presenting a note can be modified if needed or expanded.
The commentator always refers to the “why” element. Answers that the response to this news element requires understanding and control over news and events. At the time of writing the comment, after selecting the subject, this should be clarified as to what we want to present. This is where we have to provide information that proves this idea. The information used in the commentary can be based on news and news stories or quotes from others. We must know that predictor is not predictor; prediction is based on evidence, evidence and experience.

Different parts of a political commentary
• Starting commentary with news
• History and creating columns and article bases
• Information and reasoning to empower the viewer
• Information and reasoning
• Information and quotes to strengthen the comment
• Comment, along with the prediction and ending of the comment by the question


In any case, the end of the article will give power to the news and argumentation in the body of the article, and will accompany the reader with the author’s opinion, whatever grounds for argumentation and evidence and history will be used properly, the end of writing The paper will be easier and more solid at the same time.
