Many Arabs argue that the Iranians actually want America to attack. Politically, that would help the hard-liners rally support. And militarily, it would lure the United States onto a battlefield where its immense firepower wouldn’t do much good.
Actually the argument is that, the US would like to get stuck in another protracted war, so that West Asia is totally destroyed. It knows, like Vietnam and Cambodia, the out flow of cheap good labour, which it needs. It will still carry getting the oil, just like it still does in Iraq. The US oil companies and their Seyyed poodles, have no love for Iran or true Iranians. The last thing they want is, for Iranians to have multinational oil companies, and multinational corporations, like those in East Asia. The Chinese or the East Asians do not want that competition. That is why China supports the Seyyeds. Iranians and other Caspian people are young and extremely intelligent, with a culture that predates all of Asia. We ruled Asia for centuries, and the last thing the rest of Asia, and their US backers want, is another Persian Empire, with it own splendour of multinational corporations, becoming The Bridge of Turquoise between Europe and Africa and the East, again.
