I continue to see parallels between this Iran and the Iran of Jimmy Carter's days. They had every reason to keep their mouths shut during the Reagan era [now watch all the guns-for-hostages posts!] and under Bush 1, under Clinton and certainly under Bush 2, with US tanks and missiles conveniently poised on Iran's border.
But now? After Arab spring, Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Iraq again, Putin's bullying and all that?
Yeah, I would say they see this as their last, best hope.

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.
Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
