Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Which event broke the camel's back?

The IRGC Commander Soleimani assassination by Trump


The IRGC mishap UIA-752 and the cover-up?

Placed in history and the psychology of the masses, ultimate hate between America, Israel and the founding of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979, there was NO other way these decisions were made by both the leaders of the US and Iran.

Iran is split in religious leader Khamanei, political Rouhani and the military IRGC. A systematic failure. The "retaliation" was one to calm the masses after the great Satan murdered their military leader, the mishap had to be covered-up, knowing very well the responsibility had to be taken at a later moment in time.

A Dutch expression: sitting in spagaat.
