    but you know, now valuations of £70m for Harry fucking Maguire fall short of Leicester's own valuation so maybe the whole diplomatic and economic embargo thing wasn't so great after all

    perhaps we can all blame FIFA for nudging the boulder down the mountain in 2010 awarding Qatar the first Middle East WC; it was probably never going to go unpunished

    but, the Sunni Arab-Shia Persian struggle for Middle Eastern supremacy is a conflict dating back centuries and will continue apace regardless of American involvement. the Yemeni Civil War will continue apace and function as a proxy conflict between the two regardless of American involvement.
    I'm of this school of thought as well, but I also wonder how much of current Iran is a legacy of Western meddling in backing the Shah whose failed white revolution led to the Islamic Revolution.

    Pahlavi should've known better than to enfranchise women in an Islamic zone

    it is amusing though, he was so fearful of a Marxist revolution he didn't realize his policies were fomenting an Islamist one.

    Also you wound me. As the resident utilitarian and hege hack, I would think you would give me the credit of being more than ready to accept the world as irreparably flawed and to choose the optimally strategic morally flawed action.

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned Wednesday that Iran would increase its enrichment of uranium this weekend to whatever level was needed beyond the cap set by a 2015 nuclear agreement, a move that could further escalate tensions with the United States.


    Iran has repeatedly threatened that by July 7 it will increase enrichment above 3.67 percent concentration of Uranium-235 — the level of fissile isotope allowed under the nuclear deal — unless it receives some relief from U.S. sanctions. European countries are struggling to meet Tehran’s demands to keep the 2015 nuclear deal alive. 

    
“Our enrichment rate is not going to be 3.67 percent anymore,” Rouhani said. “It’s going to be as much as we want it to be.”

    The House voted Friday to prevent President Trump from going to war with Iran without congressional approval, after more than two dozen Republicans joined Democrats to include the provision in the House’s annual defense authorization bill.


    The move sets up a showdown with the Senate over whether the Iran restriction, which includes an exception for cases of self-defense, will be included in the final bill negotiated between the two chambers.

    
Republican leaders have argued that the move communicates to Tehran that the United States is divided, which could complicate Trump’s ability to manage escalating tensions. Last month, the president authorized, then called off an airstrike in response to Iran downing a U.S. surveillance drone.

    US shot down a drone

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...1e9_story.html

    President Trump said the drone came very close to the USS Boxer and ignored multiple calls to stand down.


    “This is the latest of many provocative and hostile actions by Iran against vessels operating in international waters," Trump told reporters. "The United States reserves the right to defend our personnel, our facilities and interests and calls upon all nations to condemn Iran's attempts to disrupt freedom of navigation and global commerce."

    Iran suggests the US may have shot down one of their own and isn't missing any drones.

    According to recent news Iran is going to launch a new satellite. Do you think they will get a man into space before India or Pakistan?
