WHY? - IranWhat is Iran trying to accomplish?
I am mystified. At every turn this backwards, financially-challenged country chooses to both oppose and antagonize all who try to make peace.
When dialogue is suggested...they ignore. When threats are issued, they fire rockets, deny any problems and move in to rough waters. When sanctions are given by UN/US/Others as the primary option, they fire more rockets.
Are they: 1) Dumber than rocks
2) Smart as a Fox
3) Playing to the crowd
I have not a clue. But, they seem to avoid all the options which most see as their ONLY alternative.
They certainly are effective at keeping the UN and US off-their-game.
