    Like with Iraq, Iran does not present a military threat to the US. I don't believe in going to war with a country that is not a threat to us. That has worked poorly when we did it in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq.
    North Korea is not a threat to world peace?
    Is this the new level, Cat?

    That would make you very old now if you were old enough to remember it! Pretty sure the old units had a UN flag.

    But aren't there US forces still in S.Korea or has the world moved on without me?

    Total crap, no one can know this classified information. Use your head man. And Iran didn't "detect" the submarine, unless you want to count seeing a periscope as detection. Hahahaha, pullleaze.

    I think the only reason we would attack Iran is for the same reason.
    Yep, that's what Obama would do.

    Bases that we rent/lease/own in South Korea have American Flags. Nato bases that are leased/rented/owned have UN flags. If a mission is developed under the Nato side, the vehicles will have a Nato flag. I think mostly in S. Korea now are US flags.

    It is equivalent to saying they detected the Sub after it torpedoed them.

    Perhaps he meant 'Americans'. The Iranian army/super-guard funds, supplies and trains terrorists in Iraq that target Americans as well as civilians. That's a fact, right? 'American interests' could also work regarding Hez, Hamas and who knows what in Africa and Pakistan.
