  1. All the Americans need to win is enough Iranians (beyond those who have Ahura Mazda tattoed on their shouldes) asking "Why are we in Leb/Iraq, why are we helping Arabs etc'? You likely know the Persoid mantras. I think the Saudi angle is very much for the optics in the Sunni world. I didn't feel the need to repost the material here, but MbS is very much an Israeli creation. At the time of the Khashoggi incident, based on press reports, I did point out that if MbS stayed in power he'd be owned by the Israelis. Everyone else wanted him gone, but they stuck by him. Various scientific behaviour change models would disagree. Someone may have the niyat to lead a religious life, if the State can empower them to do so by enacting laws that make sin harder and virtue easier, it makes the fulfilment of that niyat more likely.
  2. I give this out this business card:
  3. I don't think a land invasion of any description is on the cards. More likely would be bombing of the Iranian military, perhaps followed by bombing of key civilian infrastructure. A less ambitious objective would be to have either a change of Iranian government or Iranian foreign policy that cuts off Iran from the rest of the Middle East. So no more links with Hz or the Iraqi militias etc. The Ayatollahs can stay, but their remit would only run as far as the Iranian borders. Israel would then have a completely free hand throughout the Middle East. A more ambitious objective would be to have a new system of Iranian government in place where the US/Israel can choose the leadership. Just as they do in Saudi. Of course, the less ambitious objective could lead to the more ambitious one, over a period of months or years.
  4. ^ around 13 min mark, someone thinks that they are having a snack on the quiet (dipping their fingers into a pot), but it's all caught in the reflection.

  6. We've got these popping up around where I live. They're attached to the street light poles. There goes the argument about a lack of infrastructure for charging.

  8. The link above gives some detailed explanations as to how the Israelis have been providing the Americans with dodgy intelligence in order to ramp up the military pressure on Iran. The article below makes the opposite case, that the Israelis are against war, for the following reason: https://www.independent.co.United Kingdom/news/world/middle-east/Israel-missiles-us-Iran-explained-Syria-conflict-war-Trump-a8924061.html
