Some of you would know the reason but i heard this from an older(mid 60s) Iranian engineer at my workplace.
I seen this guy by my office for 2 yrs but never really spoke, but today i took my break later then usual and i met up and had a chat with him in the
cafeteria(he has been living in the West for 25-30 yrs).
He was telling me the main reason that Iran is viewed as threat by America is because if Iran gets nuclear power and eventually develop Weapons, this
would jeopardize the neighboring Arab countries, who are pawns of the US.
Most of these neighboring Arab countries do not have a political system, they do not elect anyone, this countries have been running by a "royal"
family(in fact, they actually killed real royals and took over, people in middles east know this but do not talk about it). This Royal family in power
due to support from US, thus, these royal families are in good relationship with US(and the benefits from each other).
Iran being the only country to rise up with rules and laws and election in Middle east, and if they do have the nuclear power means that they would be
fearless. All the people under these royal families would revolt against their masters and would also want a structural law like Iran. Of course this
is not favored by the royals of these neighboring countries.
Iran getting power is bad in many ways for US.
1) They would lose their connection with these royal families that run the neighboring Arab countries.
2) Pressure from Israel.
3) and the fact that Iran is the only rebellious country against US and not a sheep like the neighboring countries.
What do you guys think of this? Does his claim make sense?
Edit: i should add this because it is important, he does think the president should be changed but he does not want what happened to Iraq.
