By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Iran has been running military drills in the Persian Gulf. They have set off test rockets and they had ground maneuvers.
A country, especially a country like Iran which is feeling more and more isolated and threatened, has only a few options for regaining honor and pride and for sending a message to those poking and provoking them.
Iran's maneuvers are clear statements against the United States, the West and all other countries joining in US-sponsored sanctions against them.
These military exercises are carefully designed by Iran to make certain that their neighbors understand that they are capable of hitting anyone at any time.
Iran's maneuvers are a clear statement and part of that statement is a military threat.
