My $0.02 on Iran
The regime in control of Iran right now (and their counterparts, the American GOP) is doing all it can to provoke the US into some aggressive and irresponsible action. Internal opposition is a problem for the regime, and it would be helpful for them to be able to rally the Iranian people around a nonexistent external threat. It would also help the American GOP for the hardliners to stay in power in Iran because they need as much instability in the world as possible in order to lend a modicum of credibility to their fearmongering. "Stay scary, Iran," is the GOP mantra. Hmm, that explains a lot of what the Bush/Cheney regime was up to.
