Iran must have been getting tired of all this "signaling" and "messaging" and "making overtures" and "statements" and other obfuscational confusion that distinguishes the r-Types from actual human beings. They decided to blow some sh*t up to show how easy it is.
The "r"-Type is denoted by his/her lack of quality, virtue, courage and integrity. Any war of nerves, these touchy-feely wafflers are going to lose. Jacob means "to disseminate" in Hebrew. Esau means "Man of Action." In a world with atomic weapons, not being specific is a character flaw and an invitation to a misunderstanding that could lead to global thermonuclear war. Fifty years ago our nuclear arsenal was in the hands of the K's. Today it is in the hands of the "r"'s, a type of peacenik who simply cannot avoid conflicts or maintain the peace.
