One thing you have to remember, is that years ago now, Iran wasn't even a blip on our radar but they were supplying weapons and IDE's to the insurgents in Iraq to kill American troops. All this would not be happening if the leadership in Iran was actually sane. but they perceived a threat from the U.S. just because we were there, and are now dealing with the consequences of their stupidity.
I will say this though, The intelligence community had better find out who all of the Iranian benefactors are, before taking any action. We are technologically, and manpower wise, superior to the Iranian military. I'm sure they are smart enough to realize this, which leaders me to believe that they have a former superpower in their corner.
