3. The US contractor militarists, their lobbyists, and US pols love Iran's saber rattling

 

Lends impetus for the vast US military budget.
Conversely, Iran's militarists love US saber rattling.
One hand washes the other.

4. What, no homecoming dance planned, too?

I doubt they'll have a large group of "protesters" that are actually true hardline believers. More of an excuse to get out and party like it's 1979, trying to re-capture the feeling that they were actually accomplishing something.

It's more sad than frightening. The hard-liners are losing their grip due to the natural evolution of revolutions, and they're struggling to find ways of continuing to be relevant.
