    Then Iran goes and designates CENTCOM as terrorists.

    All parties need to be careful of who they label as terrorists. They stand the risk of lowering the bar on the 'terrorist' designation and causing it to become meaningless.

    So? Doesn't do jack to US interests. The squeeze is on Iran, it will now lose much needed forex revenues. The world trades in USD, not rial. And that is not changing for the next 50 years. One islamic nuclear country has become an international migraine, another one? The world doesn't think so.

    I agree that the squeeze is on Iran, at least in respect to actions of the US. The EU differs somewhat, albeit timidly for now. Iran claims that it doesn't want nuclear weapons and that's for religious reasons. That could be true, but it also could be true that it wants nuclear weapons as a deterrent to outside aggression. I don't think anyone is of the opinion that Iran would ever be interested in a first strike attack against the Jewish apartheid regime. It's no more likely than Venezuela ever becoming a nuclear power, as opposed to many small countries being client states that depend on big brother.

    The promotion of the notion that any of them wants and needs nuclear weapons is strictly in the value of demonizing. That's my opinion at least, fwiw?
