“totally unsubstantiated conjecture”
If you step back and observe it objectively, you’d see that your words better characterize your opinion. You seem to simply project from what happened before, rather than what is happening now.
Yesterday you wrote: “This thing is over.”
Objectively, it is not. In fact, it has grown.
There has been conjecture that other countries are assisting the protesters, but now that is the official position of the Russian and Iranian governments.
I have been following the coordination between the USA, Saudi Arabia and Israel to counter the Iranian regime, since Trump’s first month in office. I found strong reason to believe that they have agreed to a plan of action, such as this report: https://www.timesofisrael.com/report-us-israel-sign-secret-pact-to-tackle-iran-nuclear-and-missile-threat/.
Other countries get to act as well as Iran, and have significant capabilities that could be brought to bear, like targeted assassinations at key times: http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/01/report_us_gives_green_light_to_israeli_assassination_of_iranian_general.html
let me warn that this comes dangerously close to a war with 90 million people that we cant handle. This aint no Iraq here. Saudi Arabia is the # 1 supporter and promoter of terrorism in the world. We all know that. They were totally behind 911 and Al Queda and Isis. That is SUNNI terrorism. Iran was none of that— zero zip!! This CIA attempted coup is doomed to failure but why are we not doing this to Saudi Arabia. They are far more active in attacking us!! The only allegation with any merit against Iran is that Iranian bombs were used as IEDs by insurgents in iraq. That’s it. We lost 3000 Americans on 911 to a suicide mission directly sponsored by the royal family in Saudi Arabia but we avert our gaze on them because of economic ties of the elites. Wake up!!
