Inaction, on the other hand, will place the public focus on the beleaguered economy and foreign military adventures, two issues that have already brought Iranians to the streets.

The US policy on Iran, marked by the
withdrawal one year ago from the nuclear agreement known as JCPOA, is
continuing a path of pressure: renewal of sanctions; designation of Iran’s
Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization; and the
recent increase in military preparedness for a possible confrontation with the
Islamic republic. While Iran reciprocated, with its own designation of the US
Army as a terrorist organization and by issuing a nuclear ultimatum to Europe,
the Islamic regime finds these unprecedented moves enormously frustrating. In
this fragile state of affairs, a miscalculation by Iran could possibly ignite
the flames of a war that no one wants.
