Iran invites Israeli attack

Yesterday Iran tested its medium range missiles. In the midst of the controversy over the revelation of a previously undisclosed underground uranium enrichment site, this is hard not to see as a provocation. How odd that a country with a viable middle class and professional class takes exactly the same course as North Korea in its defiance. One of the medium range missiles tested has the capacity to reach Israel and the tests, shown gloriously on Iranian state television, were a success.

It seems clear that Amadinajab and the conservative segment of the ruling mullahs, including the current Ayatollah, do not have a unified country supporting them, especially in the urban areas. They may welcome the attack that they are risking, as an excuse to eradicate all opposition and take the next page of North Korea's playbook, that's the absolute dictatorship one.
