Why would you ask if anybody has been to iran. Nobody goes under any condition you may have a job getting out again . What a nasty horrible country why would anybody go there for there holidays nobody i know . Airlines wont even fly over the place worse than avghanistan  horrible country . You say general population [ike us i dont think so they nearly all hate the western world British americans keep away for a reason 

Next time you go remember Nazanin Radciffe in jail since 2016 a woman they are holding on political charges wouldnt happen in this country 

Holding people on political charges ...hmmmm...sounds like us with Julian Assange.

Wasn't the shah chucked out due to western influence?

In the sense that he wanted to westernise further I think. The religious types weren't so keen.

I thought Julian Assange had been given a prison sentence for breaking his original bail conditions.

Just listening to Mike Pompeo lay the blame for these attacked tankers, at the feet of Iran (not much in the way of evidence though). I don't think this is going to end well.

The framework in which to assess the current Iran situation is this:

The most likely future for Iran's Islamist regime is that it is out of office by mid-Oct, in time for the US elections.

That regime seeks to dominate the ME, and by that to gain leverage on the wider world, by way of control of the oil supply.

But there are very few parties in the Gulf and the surrounding ME that want Iran to dominate that region, and most will welcome the demise of the regime.

Europe will soon get with the US/Trump program, and China, Japan, SK and the rest of Asia will smile warmly from the side-lines.

Remember that Europe and most of Asia depend mightily on reliable flow of ME oil at OK prices.

Turkey is most likely to become the dominant actor in the region, which will be OK for the rest of us.

With precision US strikes on Iranian military targets along the way, and Trump's saying that the Iranian people have a great future in store, pro-Western forces within Iran will overcome the current Islamist regime.

Iran is a beautiful country, with a rich cultural heritage and lovely, hospitable people. All you're illustrating here is your profound ignorance and prejudice.

Youre wasting your time mate. Some people prefer to stick to their bigoted and inaccurate view no matter how wrong it is.

Yeah because it would have been so much better if lots of people had lost their lives instead eh?

I despair sometimes I really do.

Iran did the right thing. They made their point and kept the risk to life at a minimum. America could learn a thing or two from them.

Far from the rabble-rousing headlines and monochromatic/simplistic viewpoints and debate...

 

...once you consider the actual strike accuracy of Iranian missiles, relative to prior intelligence-based estimates, Iran arguably played a geopolitical blinder with those victimless strikes, besides gaining tons of technical validation for their missile R&D.

 

Rest assured that a fair few people learned a lot from that. Including in the Pentagon, I bet. Now, whether that explains the deescalation, or is only inviting more trouble very soon...
