I hope that he realizes that he is making bad mistakes. He has learned from his father to run the country into the ground. He just may oblivious to what he is doing and will continue in foolishness.

He might be thinking that things are going well. After all, he is getting advanced military technology from Russia to build his army, he got rid of a problematic political situation (albeit with a little unrest, but that may clear), he has formed an alliance with fellow Shiites.
