I think there is something rather idiotic about the author claiming Iran doesn't have "some sort of death wish" when their idiology exaults suicide bombings. According that idiology they'd gladly lose some of their own in order to kill "the infidel". Besides which, back in the Iraq-Iran war, they used to send their own children into minefields to clear them. How many more signals do you need before you wake up?
