Kick us out of military bases in their territory?
Refusal to participate in Trump's bullshit embargoes, leaving Iran economically better off than they were before Trump started beating his flabby chest.
Refusal to support U.S. military by denying to the U.S. bases from which to stage attacks. (Staging including any transport operations.)
Withdrawal of support, including exchange of intelligence, with the U.S. in what would be a more legitimate opposition to Iran's idiotic war against Israel.
Eventually, refusal to join with U.S. on any joint operations, anywhere, on the grounds that the U.S. has become the newest rogue/bully nation.
Possibly more support for Putin and China in all sorts of international situations.

All so that Trump and Bolton can feel like they are strong.
