So, on Monday I posted this item regarding Iran.
Today, there are hundreds of thousands of Iranians gathering in Tehran to mark the anniversary of their 1979 revolution. Though, there also are protests within the country (the under-40 demographic is much more pro-American), and the current regime is trying to keep that under wraps.
Plus, Iranian President "I'm-a-nut-job" announced that Iran now has successfully enriched uranium, and will continue to do so. I don't think Israel will treat this news lightly. They may already be well aware of it, and may soon decide to do something about it before it gets to the point of directly threatening their existence.
Meanwhile, China has balked at the idea of sanctions (something the U.S. proposed in the addendum to my original post).
