Iran's regime is engulfed in mounting crises.
The last thing it needs is to look weak.

My latest piece sheds light on the mullahs' mentality.

Asked about concerns over a clash with Iran, President Trump says: "No... we have the most deadly ships, we don't want to have to use them but... we hope for their sake they don't do anything foolish... if they do they're going to pay a price like nobody's ever paid a price."

Iraqi general says unknown drown conducted two strikes targeting Iraqi Hezbollah battalions."

1st attack - 1:50 am local time
2nd attack - 2:20 am

Iraqi source to Al Arabiya: US-led int'l coalition was observing the targeted base in Salahadin Province, north of Baghdad.

Dr. Walid Phares breaking down 's mentality in the recent escalation of Middle East tensions against the U.S.

CENTCOM official tells Israeli reporter Amichai Stein:
"US forces not involved in the strike against pro-Iranian base."
I asked, "Who is?" - The response: Nothing to add.

My take:
Israel and/or GCC countries (from somewhere in Kurdish-controlled areas of Syria).

Unconfirmed report:
Ballistic missiles were bombed by the unidentified aircraft in the base - located in Iraq's Salah al-Din province - were directed at Saudi Arabia & Israel.

"Base believed to house balletic missiles deployed recently by Iran" - @AlArabiya

Washington rejects offer from FM @JZarif of inspections in Iran's sites in return for lifting of sanctions, adding he has no decision-making powers.

My take:
He may not have been sanctioned (yet), but Zarif is being constantly humiliated by the Trump administration.

A number of Hezbollah & IRGC members were killed in the bombing of a PMF base in Iraq by an unknown drone.
Iraqi security forces confirm the "Shohada" base was targeted by drones Friday morning, leaving at least two dead.
Reports: Hezbollah & IRGC members were killed.

You know the regime in is utterly humiliated by the downing of its drone yesterday when its deputy foreign minister makes such a ridiculous statement.

The USS Boxer shoots down an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz, says U.S. President Donald Trump.

25 years ago today, Hezbollah bombed the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. 85 people died & nearly 300 were injured.
's regime blueprinted & ordered this horrific terrorist attack.
Tehran provides $700 mn/yr to Hezbollah.
It is time all accomplices face justice.

Iran's state-run Press TV releases first video footage of what Tehran is describing as "a foreign fuel-smuggling tanker" seized this week by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence to the people of :
We are with you. Iran's leaders are oppressing the Iranian people and exporting terrorism across the region.

A thread on a recent Iranian opposition conference with senior American dignitaries taking part & voicing their support for a .

With the Kirchners gone, known for their secret relations with 's mullahs, it is only logical for this nation to designate Tehran-backed Hezbollah as a terrorist entity.

Hezbollah was behind the 1992 Israeli embassy & 1996 AMIA Jewish center bombings

You know @JZarif is humiliated in the U.S. when he says, "Other than the three buildings that I have been restricted to, I have no business anywhere else."

My take:

You know the mullahs' in are engulfed in unprecedented crises when this is the best talking point Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has provided his chief apologist/lobbyist Trita Parsi.

The UK is investigating reports of Iran’s seizure of a foreign oil tanker.

Furthermore, Tehran's apologists/lobbyists, such as @yarbatman (on Twitter), are on cue to quickly provide justification for the terrorist-designated IRGC's piracy.

See the scenario?

's state TV says IRGC units on July 14 seized a foreign vessel with 12 crew and carrying one million liters of smuggled fuel, on the island of Larak in the Persian Gulf.

Iran's IRGC confirms the tanker was detained on July 14, the same day the MT Riah went missing.
