Iran, though looking out for its own national interests has become a perpetual punching bag for the interests of the petrodollar, and therefore Empire. No good would come from picking a fight with a prepared Iran that holds the strategic geographical grip that it does. It has not been a genuine aggressor, but has been made out to be so in many propaganda circles. It would be an international crime to strike out against Iran and decades of trying to develop justification for such in the court of world opinion have failed. Desperate Donny may just feel the need to play the big man, however. He is on the ropes and extremely unstable. He would love the diversion right about now.
