I strongly agree. I think Iran is trying to pick a fight with the USA and/or GCC. They need something to unite the people and take their mind off their shit-show government.

The sanctions are working and the ruling council, as well as the IRGC, is on the edge of losing everything; including their lives. Personally, I hope POTUS continues to ratchet up economic and diplomatic pressure; let the Iranians handle their own regime change.

Exactly!.....and without our assistance. Netanyahu has been pushing for the US to go to war with Iran for years. It's part of the "Greater Israel" agenda. No thank you.

Agreed. It's easy to whip up that area in a rally against the United States; letting the house of cards collapse on itself is an appropriate option via economic/diplomatic measures. If necessary IMO, containment post-collapse without permanent occupation (lessons learned from Iraq and Afghanistan and what we did with ISIL without getting anchored in).

Sure they do... but wanting something, and making it happen...

The people you referenced in your original post don't live in Iran. Easy for them to say they want revolution. Talk is cheap.

Since they didn’t get the response from the US they wanted with the Aramco bombing, they get zero capital at home with the people.

Amazing how quick the media dropped the Iranian issue like a hot potato after "Impeachment" became the new buzzword.

The MSM really does suck at real news but is great at propagandizing their chosen flavor of the week.

The yellow journalists in America failed to antagonize a war abroad with Iran that they could blame on the POTUS so they went back to trying to inflame a war here at home to blame on the POTUS

Big nothing burger. Unless they declare an open war it isn’t going to happen. The clandestine and proxy actions will continue on both sides.
