    Re: Iran's Revolutionary Guards prepare for war

    Iran is not and has never been a threat to America. Beating the drums of war against a foe that hasn't truly been agressive towards America with anything other than words just illustrates the effectiveness of fearmongering. Neither China nor Iran are threats! You guys are so desperate to find something to be afraid of, you're just scrounging around any country to be afraid of.

    It's rather pathetic.

    Now if you're afraid of terrorism, then we should focus on intelligence gathering and forging alliances. That's the only way to crush terrorists. Not launching a war campaign against a country that isn't a threat. That's doing exactly what the terrorist need to fuel their hate and create more terrorist in the process.

    It's like you guys haven't learned anything from Afghanistan and Iraq.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    I don't think the threat of Iran cutting off oil supply either domestically or strategically at the Persian Gulf is the issue. There is more than enough elasticity according to the pundits in the oil industry and reserves to absorb the losses, it's the markets reaction. They strictly go by rumors, perceived confidence and instincts, not always by solid figures. Get a panic on oil supplies, a few tankers sunk, some Iranian sympathy from other producers and hoarders waiting for a price peak and we'll see what a barrel goes for.

    since oil is fungible, it matters little how much we get directly from Iran. unplug the US from the international oil market, and Iran will still have less money to play around with.

    Dude, really? I asked a very straightforward question: Would any of the items on the aforementioned list be considered "aggressive threats"?
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Canada is no threat to anyone unless our allies, those with similar moral and legal standards. are attacked.

    Canada is not Iran, Egypt, or any other fanatically religious backwater. I have no interest in discussing your goofy hypotheticals.

    You are the most dense person on this board, I swear. Let me make this easier for you to understand.

    Please let me know if you think any of these would be aggressive threats to the US:

    1. If Iran caused explosions on American territory.
    2. If Iran murdered top American nuclear scientists.
    3. If Iran deployed sophisticated cyberattacks affecting American infrastructure and top nuclear research facilities.
    4. If Iran and Iranian politicians funded and supported an American anti-government revolutionary cult.
    5. If Iran invaded and occupied Mexico and Canada.

    Oh let's not get dramatic. I could rattle off 20 or 30 top-shelf morons from the top of my head, and he never even gets nominated.
