It's no secret the US has regime change in mind for Iran

Does the USA really want regime change in Iran? I say not necessarily.

US pundits and politicians need Iran so they can have a constant “enemy.”

Without a constant “threat,” the public might demand that politicians get off their a**es and actually do something to help the nation. A regime change might remove Iran as a “threat.” Without the Iranian "threat," weapons makers' stocks would plummet in value. When peace became a real possibility in the Korean peninsula, U.S. military contractors lost $50 billion in stock value in a single day.

Likewise, Israelis need a constant “enemy.” Israelis may slaughter Palestinians, but Israelis dare not kill every last Palestinian. Israelis need Palestinians. Israel imprisons two million Palestinians in the Gaza Death Camp, and continually exterminates them, so that Israel can continually claim that it has a “right to defend itself" from the Palestinian "threat."
