    Just wish the USA would stop its meddling around the world, actually! Regime change doesn’t seem to work in anyone’s favour, ever! Thankful some Americans dislike Trump’s attitude to Iran…

    To the opinion poll data in this article let me add this from an article on Iran/US which appeared in the 21 May edition of the FT:
    “A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Tuesday found that 51 per cent of Americans thought the US would go to war with Iran within a few years — an increase of 8 points from a year ago. The same poll said 49 per cent of Americans disapproved of the way Mr Trump was handling relations with Iran.”
