Jittery mullahs

Fox News: "An aircraft reportedly fired a missile near the southern city of Dailam in Iran on Wednesday as both Iran and Syria said they will unite against any challenges or threats to their nations' livelihoods.

...the explosion may have been caused by a fuel tank dropping from an Iranian plane."

Now why would the Iranian mullahs be so jumpy? Just because the world's only superpower is on their doorstep, with its unmanned drones and special ops forces doing recon in and over Iran, having sucessfully completed the forcible transition of their neighbor Iraq from tyranny to democracy, and the Iranian people wanting freedom too? Is that reason to be nervous?

I understand that they brew their coffee very strong in that part of the world. Perhaps the mullahs need to cut down a bit. Anyway, don't they trust in Allah?
