Attacking A Cat

Consider what is happening when you corner a domestic cat. It hisses and spits at you. What is it thinking?

Obviously, it is terrified of you, especially if you are carrying a club and threaten to pound the cat to pulp. It is merely trying to scare you off from attacking it. I contend the Iranians are very much like that cat:

If you were in Iran’s position, what would you do to protect yourself? Only nukes seem to deter the USA. It leaves North Korea and China alone. Neither Iraq nor Afghanistan had nukes.
