Iran is a product of its history. Like early Zionists, Iranian leaders act out of defensive motives, even if that is not obvious. No group retreats to conservatism unless there is a reason. The danger is not from Iran's defensiveness, which anyone who looks briefly at their history will see is clearly justified. The danger is from others' reactions to their defensiveness. Anyone is welcome to pretend Iranians are some defective breed of warlike people, or to pretend whatever else is politically expedient, but the truth is much simpler.
