You may remember back in 1979 there was a coup in Iran. The Iranians overthrew the Shah of Iran, who was a puppet for the US. The Western oil companies, which had developed the petroleum industry in Iran, were kicked out of Iran when the Shah fell.

One of the commentators in the video says that the American oil companies feel that the Iranian oil still belongs to them. That is the impetus for the hostility towards Iran.

The video explains the commercial, and possible military, ties between Russia and China, and Iran.
