Iran

One of the strangest verses in the Pentateuch is the last prophecy of Balaam:
"Alas! Who will survive when God does this? Warships will come from Kittim (Crete) to destroy Eber (Iran) and Assyria (Iraq), and they too will be annihilated!" (Numbers 24:24).

Trump, a big Bible believer, knows all the End Time apocalyptic verses, and he may decide to literally go out with a BANG!

Once the pubs are open, can we go out drinking together? You're a liability but I bet it'd be hilarious.

I'll save you. I promise.

No, really.

Good that all religious scriptures are just stuff written by other people and therefore can never be a reason for such concerns.
 
A worrying development, or the straw that will break the camel's back and trigger another revolution to install a more moderate regime?

'A new saying is making the rounds in Iran: power is being sucked away from heads to toes, which is to say, from men who wear turbans to men who wear boots. Iran’s new parliament furnishes the most recent evidence. Its speaker, Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, is a former brigadier general of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Two-thirds of the parliament’s presiding board are either former members or still affiliated with the IRGC and its auxiliary organizations. Many in Iran and in the United States have long foreseen an IRGC takeover of the Iranian government; the next step toward that outcome would be for a candidate affiliated with the IRGC to be elected president in 2021.'

Mossad might be getting a period of block leave soon-ish...
From what I've read, the real issue is that American sanctions against Iran have made it impossible for them to get the cash to US or European suppliers to pay for vaccine. That includes buying through COVAX (vaccine buying plan run by the WHO). The US has nominally lifted sanctions on Iran transferring money to Swiss banks for the purposes of buying vaccine, but left other sanctions in place so the Iranians can't get enough foreign currency in the form of hard cash together from sources acceptable to the Americans to make that transfer. They had been hoping to use cash from gas sales to Iraq, but the Iraqis haven't been paying their bills on time so there's a snag there.

The Iranians will apparently be making their own vaccine, which is in trials now, and they have a deal with Cuba, who also have a vaccine candidate coming up soon. Both Iran and Cuba have made vaccines for a long time, for over a century in Iran's case. These will probably be fairly conventional vaccines.

They can also probably buy vaccine from India, who have a license for the Oxford vaccine. India are the world's biggest vaccine manufacturer and are expected to supply much of the COVID-19 demand from the third world, mainly using the Oxford vaccine.

I suspect the Iranian announcement is intended as a face saving gesture instead of admitting that the American sanctions are having an effect on something that is a national priority.
