Tehran says it not only will, but is ready to, counter attacks from Israel and the United States. They are angry about the new sanctions and have threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz. Devote 6 minutes to watching an interesting video with Seyed Mohammad Marandi from the University of Tehran explaining how Iran looks at the current stand off:
After watching the video do you believe Iran is not only stronger, but also more of a threat, than the West wants to believe? Is Tehran capable of causing more trouble than the world needs at the moment? Do you agre with Seyed Mohammad Marandi that it's actually the United States that's being provocative? Who's actually at fault here, Iran, the US, both of them or a more complicated scenario?
With Iranian scientists being assassinated and the regime squeezed financially are they actually provoking an attack? Is it in their interest to unite Iranians against an outside enemy? Will Iran go ahead and close the Strait of Hormuz? If so, will the US attack? Is Iran capable of launching an attack on Israel? Will there be war in the Persian Gulf? What's your opinon? If an armed conflict starts will it involve the whole region? Or is the threat of closing the strait just sable rattling and the issue will be resolved peacefully? Or maybe it's all just a media hype?
