Iran at War

Kredo says American officials, by which I presume he refers to the Intelligence Community and the deep thinkers at State and the NSC, believe that the Iranian regime is planning a “massive regional war.” This comes in the wake of the Israeli attack against Hezbollah tunnels into Israel from Lebanese areas under its (Iranian) control, and emergency meetings in Europe between US Secretary of State Pompeo and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.

We have often misread Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s real intentions, so it’s best to be skeptical of this dramatic claim, but there’s certainly some reason to take it seriously. The Iranian/Hezbollah tunnel operation has been under way for years, and the mullahs and their favorite terrorists have long told themselves that Hezbollah “defeated” Israel in their last battle. Hence, they might believe they could win the next one. There is no doubt at all that they want to destroy Israel, and if they still had a compliant American president in the White House—like Obama–they might try it. But they’ve got Trump to deal with. And the “mad dog” in the Pentagon. They do not believe they can defeat us on the battlefield. We say we will stand with Israel, and we have just moved a carrier group into the Iranians’ neighborhood. So?

I don’t think the Iranian leader and his henchmen want to mess with us. So, the question is, do they really believe we will go after them if they unleash the massive regional war?
