I am aware with the Old Guards plans. This is why they might provoke the U.S. Military.
The Old Guard has been challenged directly by Iranian Pro-Democracy Forces and the Democracy Movement was beaten back violently. It is only a matter
of time before the Democracy Movement tries again.
In the event that the Old Guard feels it is losing hold of power it will order the Iranian Navy to block the Strait of Hormuz. The reason for this is
that the Old Guard knows the U.S. Fifth Fleet will attack the Iranian Navy. In the event that happens which would result in the obliteration of all
Iranian Navl Forces...the Old Guard can state that the death of so many young Iranian Sailors was the result of both the U.S. Navy and Israel's Navy
This will be impossible for anyone to prove faulse as the attack on Iran's Navy will happen at sea. The resulting outrage from the Iranian
Population that they were supposedly attacked by Israeli Forces will solidify the Old Guard reign on power in Iran.
That is their plan.
