Your notion that US interventionism will be limited to propaganda (a benefit of the doubt they are in no way entitled to IMO) is already invalidated by the additional sanctions and pressuring allies to cease trade with Iran. Add in the fact that the CIA has already ramped up covert ops in Iran and the fact that the US National Security Advisor has already publicly advocated arming protesters and nominated a violent terrorist cult to take the form of Iranian opposition and I’d say you have a very different understanding of the concepts of “low-touch” and “no downside” than I.
