The point was that Iran is not afraid to retaliate even when the enemy has the world's largest military in human history.-RQ-170 was in Iranian territory
-Global Hawk again was in Iranian territory and refused calls to move away
-Al-Assad attack happened after the most important general in Iranian history was assassinated. If US had done that to China or Russia it would be war or at the minimum a dead US general
-The sailor capture was done under a US Democrat president. Iran has a habit of ratcheting tensions against democrats whom they don’t respect (like Rouhani) because they know Democrats fear conflict.
Also once again the sailors were in Iranian territory.
So let’s review: 3 cases of violation of territory and 1 case of assassination of a government figure
So in fact everything Iran did was the BARE MINIMUM in all cases. Not something to be congratulated for. Unless Iran doesn’t want to defend its territory.
