Operation Praying Mantis: US Retribution Against Iran - History
is about as close quarter and lethal as it gets, if a little restrained by the US.
By the way, the intelligence which got the U.S. to deploy forces is “Israel”-based.
Nobody believes the likelihood of Iran seeking a reason go to war with the U.S....
sanctions are well known to create further hatred towards the county imposing those sanctions as opposed to creating a regime change and if my country had sanctions forced upon them for over 40 years, and those sanctions were tripled in the last two years, I would be doing my best to phuk up the countries trying their level best to phuk my country over.
God Forbid a writer from Turkey would ever write an anti-Trump opinion which btw, has a lot of facts in it. A bit like an American writing an anti-Israeli opinion - can't be done without getting vilified I suppose.
Try approaching it from why? sanctions are being imposed upon Iran.
The Americans are far from being Angels, however they are to a huge number, yourself not included, preferable to the Iranians in their general approach to human rights and terrorism.
