Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There are two recent stories that caught my attention and point towards the possibility that the US is provoking Iran into aggressive action in order to justify some sort of attack. The first was the collision of a US nuclear submarine and a Japanese tanker in the Hormuz Straits (the possibility that another similar fuckup could block the Straits without a war seems quite real, if unlikely). The second has been the arrest of two separate groups of Iranian diplomats in the past few weeks, the last one after a raid on an Iranian consulate.
