Iran acting paranoid? No.
I venture that they are acting quite restrained. Especially in light of *constant* overt threats (military and economic) by the US and proxy forces.
Also, don't forget that the US and Israel are also committing acts of war against Iran (murdering scientists/ internet attacks, etc).
Lastly, consider the recent US (and proxy) wars of aggression in the region, the Iranians know this is no imaginary threat. The Navy build up is a
show of phallus-waving of the highest order. The Iranian preps are warranted. A war is coming.
Keep in mind, western mainstream "media" is nothing more than propaganda. If you want facts, you'll have to dig on your own. Consider this story:
Second sourcing this (no doubt ignored) article might give you a peek at the propaganda we are being saturated with. The real terrorists are in
I agree with you that the Iranian leadership is not acting paranoid.
They are getting real desperate and peeing in the pants right now fast.
They reap what they sowed. Their persian apostate leader had long admitted in full that he, in his leadership capacity, had long funded terrorism and
the slaugher of innocent men, women and children around the world. His own admittance, freely given.
With the collapse of his ally HumanSlayer Assad, and revelations of his duplicities and games of destablization of every middle eastern and muslim
state around the world, his blasphemous dreams of godhood are over. Even his funded terrorists - the foolish sunni Hamas, sunni militants disguised as
the long dead Al Queda to destablise stable muslim states by insidiously setting up brother to fight brother, had woken up to his duplicities.
Only the sleeping are still following his commands to create and sow confusion, but they are only few remaining, as humanity - both muslims, shia and
sunni, and fellow humans around the world, are getting fed up and want those atrocious games ended, and fully efficiently capable of ending those
And as for your source from press tv, it is rather misleading. Half a truth had only be told. Read the full interview from John Cantile, and then you
will know which media is lying.
UK Guardian - syria-islamists-capture-john-cantile
A British photojournalist has spoken for the first time about his capture and wounding by Islamist militants in northern Syria last month.
John Cantlie and Dutchman Jeroen Oerlemans were held for a week before being rescued by a Free Syrian Army group, part of the opposition trying to
overthrow Bashar al-Assad....
......Oerlemans, who was wounded in the thigh, spoke last week of the pair's experience. He said there was no Syrian in the group that captured them
on 19 July. "They were all youngsters from other countries, African countries, Chechnya. They said they thought we were CIA agents.
.....Cantlie did not describe their rescue but Oerlemans has said that the two men were in a tent, blindfolded, when they heard a group of men he
assumed to be from the Free Syrian Army come in. "They were shouting at everyone, saying, 'How long has this been going on; this is outrageous,'
yelling at the jihadis, and then they told us, 'You are free.' Our hearts leapt, of course."
Radical Islamist mititants are only a small mercenary force but with a loud voice to look big within the Free Syrian Army that is made up largely of
Free Syrian People, The FSA does not condone their acts, but with the rest of world not helping to end the slaughter, volunteers to get rid of the
HumanSlayer Assad and his thugs, will be provisionally accepted.
The FSA, equipped only with light arms and nothing more than courage seeking for justice for their loved ones butchered, truly needs all the help they
can get now, facing the mother of all slaughters from tanks, artillery,gunships, warplanes and more...
