83814 Iran
I've always been lead to believe that Iran is actually a modern, quite-westernised society - all the Persians I have met have been intelligent, articulate people, a world away from the "mad mullah" narrative.

Do you think these protests in Iran are going to amount to much?

A Saudi/Iran war would be of great benefit to the planet.

It would be interesting to see who picks what side in such an event.

Are you a time traveler from the 1970s?

Probably not. The protests aren't at their core asking for change, they're asking for price subsidies and if it gets as bad as Venezuela a few months ago then I'm sure Trump will make some stupid statement to discredit the opposition and entrench a siege mentality.

I don't see how that would play out as neither side has much of a chance to make direct attacks on the other across the Persian Gulf and neither Iraq nor Kuwait would volunteer to be a battlefield.

Much as I detest sourcing youtube videos Binkov did a good rundown on the problems of a confrontation:

God I hope so. Iranians are pretty a cool bunch, especially the young ones, they're really being held back by Khamenei.

He even took a swing at laplanderstan for good measure.

2018 is going to be fun.

Indian nationalists are already celebrating and love Trump.
