U.S. and Iran are digging a hole they may not be able to get out of

25 1 0

We have been getting news reports from Iran almost daily since the end of last year. After firing missiles against military bases where U.S. troops were stationed, Iran appeared to stand down. However, more rockets have flown since.

I wonder how Iranian residents in Japan feel about this present state of tension.

"When U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted that the military could target 52 Iranian sites, I feared for the safety of my family home," said Kordbacheh Mansour, 55, who has been a resident of Japan for 30 years and runs an "izakaya" Japanese-style pub in Tokyo's Kami-Itabashi district.
