You have to remember you are looking this through the lens of someone in the West. What Iran sees is weakness. They have conducted proxie wars,
terror attacks, assasinations, attemped coups, mined the gulf, attacked civilian oil tankers, attacked US and Soviet ships in the Gulf, tried to
bomb Kuwaits oil fields all since the revolution. And what has the west done about it? Some santions. Iran can push and push and maybe at the worst
they expect some airsrikes in response. They see weakness and doubt the US or anyone else has the balls to come at them. This has proven to be the
case for 4 decades and so far they still seem to be right. Where ATS sees western warmongers, Irans sees western impotence.
