    ok
    i had read it
    and my informed response is you have nothing to prove that the iranian military is waging a campaign against American troops in afghanistan
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Did you not notice Iran has been killing Americans in Afghanistan as well?



    So? You're deflecting. The issue is that Iran is a threat to the USA because they have been killing US servicemen for years, not who is supplying whom with arms.
    No, I am not deflecting. It would be damn near impossible for Iranians to kill American military in Iraq or Afghanistan if there was no American military presence in either of the two countries! Saudis killed 3,000 plus people on September 11 and you are advocating we attack Saudi Arabia as well? The Chinese send troops south during Vietnam to kill Americans. I missed the part where you advocated for attacking China.

    Perhaps you should study the involvement of the United States in Iran. When you have completed your study tell me what you would expect the United States would do if the situation was reversed.

Furthermore, the IAEA has been pretty clear that Iran needs to fully cooperate with the agency and have Iran re implement its Additional Protocol (See NPT for details). Basically, Iran has been uncooperative with the agency, and there is now credible evidence the country is pursuing a nuclear weapon. It is our business because Iran is seen as a threat to one of our strongest allies, Israel.
    And what are we getting from our relationship with Israel? Tell me why it is worth the billions we have spent and the likelihood that Israel will draw us into what will probably be a very nasty war with Iran and beyond.

    Iran is not a threat to the USA? Iranians have been killing members of the US military for years.

    If giving weapons to someone's enemies is a horrible atrocity, then consider us the worst people in the world. So they took a play out of our playbook, is it that big of a deal?

    Not sure what sovereignty has to do with culture; not sure what it is about their religion that deserves my respect; not sure what it is about their governance that deserves my respect; any respect I have for human life is not going to be reciprocated; and natural resources have nothing to do with culture either. So, I guess we agree then that there is nothing about their culture that is really deserving of any respect.

    If Israel wants war let them fight. As long as they use the billions we give them to buy guns from us.

    Exactly. What business does Barack Obama have sending US troops to occupy Libya?
