“7 Reasons to Doubt US Version of Gulf-of-Oman Incident”

Response to a comment saying, “So it is possible (and likely, in my view) that Iran is reacting against US aggression, and who can blame them”:

 

One of the best presentations of the kind of warfare by Iran to which you refer is found here:

The piece is interesting, but it is one of the few times I have disagreed with the astute author and analyst.

I just cannot buy Iran having actually done this.

There are just too many circumstances going against it. Far too many. And why has the US already been caught in lies, such as that about the “mine”?

I also see Iran’s as a fairly risk-averse government. Careful, cautious men is what they appear to be, despite years of American-Israeli propaganda about wild-eyed violence-prone radicals, propaganda extremely far from any demonstrable proof.

If you want to see people in action ready to take huge risks for their manias, you’ve no further to look than Bolton and Netanyahu.

Perhaps it’s just the pure hatred that appears to burn in these two that allows for pretty much of anything, believing anything for the cause is just fine. No inherent restraint to speak of.

In Ian Kershaw’s huge biography of Hitler, the man is portrayed as gambler who keeps pushing his luck, keeps rolling the dice. I think that very much describes the personality of Netanyahu and a man he has had a huge influence on, Bolton.
