You have to look at the strategic move of Iran going with the Euro and dumping the RMB. France has made a power play here by supporting the Iranian nuclear deal that will weaken Chinese ambitions for being the reserve currency. Not only will Iran be selling all of its products in Euros, China will have to buy everything it does from Iran in Euros which requires China to buy more Euros, it knocks the Euro two notches up closer to the reserve currency while RMB declines back to nothing. The quickest way of killing the USD as the petro-dollar is to make the Euro the reserve currency. It is Macron's long term plan and the only one that could ever hope to dethrone the Americans. China doesn't haven't to worry about US from IOR, France and India have it covered. I like that you are moving all of these warships to IOR where French and Indians will have to rescue them when they break down. It will make a great headline. It is too bad you had a tug close by for the lone destroyer with engine troubles, but when you move more ships than you have tugs it will be a different outcome.
