The Persian Cat that Roared

I read today that Iran is sending a warship to the Mediterranean to show support for its allies.

Iran sending a message to the West! With all the support of Israel and Iran could not defeat Saddam's Iraq in an 8- year bloody war. Eight years fighting a smaller country and Iran could not win.
Iran is a country that loves superlatives with everything that is Persian. Even the Shah's name was king of kings. But the reality is that Iran is a country whose people have to deal with corruptiona and lack of freedom- the same handicaps that other less developed nations have.
The Iranian pistachio and carpet economy would make them another struggling corrupt and unfree country if it were not for oil. An awareness of their size can only serve the cause of peace.
