Strictly business in this case.
Wars, armed conflicts etc. are essentially the "business" of killing. Weapons, munitions, ammunition are highly profitable commodities.
Every nation that has armies, manufactures weapons, and ammunition will also sell it for a price, to almost any buyer. Sometimes overtly, usually
covertly through proxies and third parties.
Manufacture a war or conflict, and you have created a business opportunity.
None have been quite as good at this business than the elite western governments, especially the USA and NATO.
Iran on the other hand usually has more sinister objectives, profit isn't as important to them as it is to the major global entities that supply the
machines, weapons, and ammunition for wars/armed conflicts.
One day soon, someone may "manufacture" the last war, the "final conflict" and it will be greed that makes it all possible.
