#1 The show of force goes on and is a deterrent to conflict in the region. In times like this, keeping the peace can be harder than going to war.

Don't nobody tell the CIC, 'K?

#2 Pragmatically, as Iran is not a match for the US Navy-DOD at this time, IMO the only real GEOPOL reason [among other] for its defiant bluster WOULD BE TO SCORE "OWG CALIPHATE" POINTS AGZ THE SAUDIS + SUNNI ISLAM.

Emphasis on the Saudis as DEFENDER OF [True]ISLAM, SWORD OF ALLAH + PROPHET, ETC. SOBRIQUETS.

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > IRAN "WINNING" ON WESTERN OIL SANCTIONS: VITROL. US-West-induced redux in the world supply of oil vee anti-Iran UN Sanctions all but "justifies/validates" Iran's retaliatory demand for HIGHER-N-HIGHER INTERNAT OIL PRICES???

* SAME > US, EU SANCTIONS HELP IRAN BOOST RELATIONS WID ITS NEIGHTBORS:ABDOLLAHI [Iran Consul-General].

Radical Mullahs' Vietnam War-style, Regional, anti-US/Coalition/UNCOM INVASION "OSAMA/
AYATOLLAH KHOMEINI TRAIL" [Ho Chi Minh Trail] notwithstanding.

* SAME > [Dawn.PK] PAK-IRAN [+ Afghanistan] STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP, needed to counter the US-NATO + Indjuh.

Pakistan + Iran have common ground in preventing or defeating US-led efforts to partition their countries e.g. BALOCHISTAN.

* SAME > CHINESE PAPER [People's Daily] CALLS FOR ALLIANCE WID INDIA AGZ US.

Ditto Mama Russia as per both China + India time back.

[1980's-1990's ANTI-US, WEST "RED-STAR" TURBAN here].
