I think its a dangerous mistake to confuse the Rhetoric coming out of Iran with what they really want.
Religion can be a powerful tool for control, but they know nationalism is a better one. Constantly putting up the US and Israel (and the west in general) is a great way for the government to try to retain control… But its slipping anyways.
Iran is going towards what is essentially a secular military dictatorship, and has been for a while. The Mullah’s BEST hope for keeping control is an attack by the US and Israel at this point.
