INU - LobeLog published an article on Tuesday that sought to analyze the motivating factors behind Iran’s foreign policy positions, which are widely recognized as belligerent and militaristic. Despite this recognition, Iranian officials generally insist that their military development is purely defensive in nature, even as some of those same officials assert the significance of that development and the potential for Iranian victory in a war with its adversaries. The article dismisses this bluster but concludes that there is a blurry line between what Iran considers to be deterrence of its enemies and what those enemies perceive to be aggressive expansionism.
