    Most of the people on that list are not Trump - no secret service protection detail for life. If Iran wants them gone, they would actually be in danger. They are probably just fucking with the US though - only the US would waste enormous resources and risk their position on petty assassinations that feel really good, but are ultimately fruitless because people can be replaced. Like that Soleimani dude, not even a week and Iran's been running the same ops with twice the intensity.

    When you have both a military hierarchy and a society deeply indoctrinated with an appropriate set of values (be it religion, republicanism, communism, nationalism, or whatever) a combat force can withstand tremendous amounts of losses other forces cannot. You saw that in Republican France, in the Iran-Iraq War, etc.

    I suspect that as much as anything this is Iran telling the US that it is capable of identifying its staff, not just the leaders and telling today's staff that it can put a target on their back so be careful.

    honestly the list wouldn't be bothering too many though it shows iran's ability in espionage is all.

    what is worrying the **** out of them however is that they now know without doubt, iran's missiles are the real deal. it wasnt just bluff after all. their arsenal is now accepted to have lethal accuracy and that will be frightening them hell out of them....the jews too.

    I wish I could agree . But I can not . The problem is the nature of Iranian society . Lack of political freedoms and organisation . This leading to severe deficiencies in defence and domestic and foreign policy . Missiles do not have the range , or nuclear warheads to reach all enemies . Local economy is disorganised , by excessive power and influence of reactionary  Bazzari / Liberal right wing . Foreign policy is also misguided , for the same reason , by being defeatist and compromising . Iran's political reach is also limited , by having purely religious , as opposed to a democratic form .

    Iranians are also full of the sense of their self- importance ! A lot of hubris and inflated sense of their superiority and invincibility . Partly brought about by their history of Empire . Comparing Iran to other parts of the world , where similar problems exist , they show less ability to adapt and progress socially . But they would never consider themselves as inferior , to an African or Latin American society . They think of themselves as almost European ! Emulating superficial qualities , while lacking in more important substantial aspects . Extreme religious zealots , misused religion to subvert political freedoms . The overwhelming tendency in the Muslim world , is the misuse of deep religious feelings by the reactionary elements against progressive and socialist movements . Not Islamic awakening ! But Islamic stupor .

    Sorry for off topic but I wish Christian's in the west and muslims in the east could join into a bloc or loose league to resist neoliberal and neoconservative hegemony. Many Christian's are growing to realize the monstrousness of western foreign policy and toadies in countries they help clamp down on their people. Saudi Arabia is an example of that.

    The economic value of trade , for the West with revolutionary ( at least anti-American) Iran , is miniscule compared to political value of a defeated and occupied vassal state against China and Russia influence in Asia . This means that USA benefits more by war against smaller independent nations , than having peace with them .

    There is a theory that the US are going to go for an agreement with Iran. To make it palatable for Democrats it will all be blamed on Trump.

    It could be turning into fact

    There will be no agreement with Iran, this is a given. Especially after what we saw with Russia-US meeting recently. The west does not want to bend, very highly unlikely they bend to Iran.

    When they can't blame Russia they blame Trump...

    I really don't think it is much deeper than that...

    ....would love to be wrong, but I don't think the US wants to go back to the original treaty because Iran has gone through all the bullshit and now she should be getting the pay off investment...

    I rather suspect Obama hoped by now they would be able to mount air attacks and take out their entire nuclear programme with these new stealthy F-35s they will have that will decimate isolated weak Iran... of course as a backup plan B he will be out of office before any of this shit goes down so it wont be his problem anyway.

    Their core problems... Iranian air defence is rather better than they are normally used to going up against... hense detected and lost stealth drones, plus unexpected ballistic performance of their attack potential... again, not something they expect from their victims... an ability to hit back... look at how pissed off they were with Saddam and his Scuds and their accuracy was pathetic... and of course these days Russia and China are powerful enough to ignore the US, which led to even the EU resisting the US for a while.... on paper... but of course EU companies folded when threatened with US sanctions too.

    More sanctions on Russia and Iran, and by the end of the week the clown will somehow find a way to sanction himself in a moment of dementia.

    The Americans threw a tantrum when Russia demanded no sneaky sanctions on Iran because of the war
    in Ukria. Naturally, the western fake stream media is trying to paint this as Russia trying to use Iran
    to reduce the sanctions pressure. But the retards never explain how Iran can be used by Russia this
    way (i.e. the trade volume is not there and Iran does not supply Russia with critical products.)

    #Iran wait during two years since #Soleimani death and knew how to maintain the surprise factor to launch the attack at the right time. For sure this is only a part of what can expect #Iran has prepared & It won't be the last attack to #USA forces in the Middle East...
