What is Iran Trying to Do?

        Openly challenging the Europeans on uranium enrichment, calling for the destruction of Israel, "green auras". . . What's the game?

        You can find one answer here.  It comes from George Friedman of Stratfor.

        Basically, Friedman thinks that Iran is trying to regain the leadership of Radical Islam it once had.  To do that, it needs to shed an image of unprincipled collaboration with the West.

        So, the mullahs defy Europe and dare the U.S. and Israel to bomb them.  If they aren't bombed, they'll get nukes.  If they are bombed, they've stood up to the Crusaders and Zionists.  A win either way.

        Read it all.
