On 17 January, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, led the 
Friday prayers for the first time in eight years. He mocked the 
‘American clowns’ who threatened Iran and said that Iran’s response to 
the US assassination of Major General Qassem Soleimani was a ‘slap in 
the face’ of US power. Tensions between Washington, DC, and Tehran seem 
to have gone from a boil to a simmer, but they nonetheless remain. There 
is reason to believe that US President Donald Trump – reckless by nature 
– will launch an attack on Iran in the next few months. He might do so 
to distract from the impeachment trial he faces in the US Senate or to 
hasten his chances of re-election in November 2020.
