Congratulations Iran on your recent milestone, and best of luck to your future endeavors without the overhanging oppression from the desperate and collapsing empire of the United States and Israel.

A war has been averted IMO, and America's crusade to steal and control the last remaining significant oil is coming to a close.

I am not sure what your saying here. What has Iran done that has thwarted anybody? Iran is not liked or trusted by any of its neighbors and an increased threat from Iran will simply push them deeper into the Wests corner. Iran is why the French have a new naval base in the UAE, they would never have allowed them in before. If Israel and the US wish to take them out they will. They have not done so yet because they know that Iran is unstable and most likely will fall of its own accord. They will do nothing unless they begin present a direct threat to the region that will then demand the US act.
The Achaemenid Empire (Persian: امپراتوری هخامنشی) (ca. 550–330 BCE), also known as the Persian Empire, was the successor state of the Median Empire, ruling over significant portions of what would become Greater Iran. The Persian and the Median Empire taken together are also known as the Medo-Persian Empire, which encompassed the combined territories of several earlier empires.
It was the largest empire in ancient history.
