Yes, they seem to be the only ones using their brains in this. I don't think it was necessarily restraint though of course Iran does not want war if it can be avoided. I think it was a lesson. Iran showed the US and Israel what she could do but did not kill. In this I notice Iran is doing everything she can to present herself as the one following International Law. I believed you were open to one having been made to believe you could do this and not suffer. Well this is not what military I have read believe. This seems to be what the American far right believe and it is based on arrogance and propaganda. When British Intelligence were asked to look into Iraq to see its danger to the West. They returned saying that they could not see much danger but that there was a significant danger from Iran. They were then told to go and create dangers from Iraq which would justify a war. Why do you think that after 12 years the UN with major world countries including the US came up with the JCPOA? it wasn't because it was a perfect answer but what it would have done was stop Iran from building nukes whilst giving a period in which better relations could be restored. Israel was claiming she was scared of Iran having nukes. If that had been what she had been scared of, this would have satisfied her. Clearly there were other things. Likewise with the CZ's of the US. They are after their Armageddon. You believe Iran wins versus Israel?...and nothing personal but Israel then wants Americans to die for Israel - and to be frank for Israel going against International law. Iran would be open to a decent conclusion. The ME has been for a couple of decades but Israel had not finished its land grab. I am aware that the American CZ's are of like mind and they have been working with Netanyhu since the idea of 2 states came in to make sure that did not happen and destroy what their bible said was going to happen. Gilos just look at the difference in military equipment that the Saud's have against Yemen. They thought with that they would be able to win in three months. Three or is it four years later and with all the death and destruction, they are not winning, though I believe since the attack on their oil refineries there has been some sort of cease fire. Having massive armaments does not mean you win wars. This has been shown time and again.
