    OK, let me see if I have this right. Because we have been ****ing over and ****ing with the people in the ME for over 50 years (in modern times) and as we have helped to draw some of the borders; we have assisted in assassinating their leaders; we have had their heads of government overthrown; we have picked and "recognized" new leaders for them; we have occupied their land; destroyed their infrastructure; provided weapons and intelligence for one ME nation to use against another and vice versa; we have destroyed their infrastructure; we have "accidentally" killed their innocents by the tens of thousands; in places like Iraq we have made some areas of the country so toxic that their children are being born with disabilities at a much higher rate than normal; we disappeared their sons and husbands and fathers and brothers, some still in prisons across the world, many face no charges but have not been released; we've raped their children or allowed the to be raped in prisons; we have been loyal only to Saudi Arabia and Israel.

    And Iran has made it "our" business now to be involved in Iran?

    Tell me true, given all of the above and more, if these things, had been done Muslim nations to Canada and then to Mexico, assuming the US didn't have nukes do you think the US might be steady working to get a bomb soonest? Oh, hell yeah! Do you think the US would sit ideally by and not do all it could to assist Canada and Mexico so that the Muslim empire might be stopped while it was at the front and back doors of the US?

    Do you think that if we attack Iran that it will stop them from attacking us all over the globe? LOL! If you were in their place would it stop you?

    I agree Sam. But if that is the case, I'd like for the US government to be honest about and say upfront that they are going to kill, destroy, and maim whomever stands in its way to get oil. Let Americans know that people have died, are dying and will die so that we can have next day delivery from Amazon and big ass cars and toys and all of that and more. Perhaps if Americans were faced with the truth they'd tell the government to get serious about finding other ways to live with muuuuuch less oil.

    In addition we all know that Peak Oil is here or just around the corner. I'm thinking already here. Point is, soon irresponsible use of petroleum will soon become a social issue. We ARE going to have to find other ways. There is no choice in that matter.

    Something to think about: Suppose Iran knows just how limited oil is and is looking forward and planning toward a time when they will not have much oil and not enough money or time to build alternative fuel sources. It could be Iran is doing exactly what it says it's doing.

    Nice speech, a bit of blather, but, a wonderful sound bite nonetheless.

    On Wednesday the Iranian ambassador to Moscow, Seyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi declared that Iran has the capabilities to carry out military strikes on US interests around the globe.

    This comes after President Obama announced the United States would freeze all Iranian assets held in the US. The executive order which was signed on Monday was in reaction to what the US is calling deceptive practices by Iran

    When multiple countries are threatening to blow you off the face of the map, you play the only cards you have, which in the case of Iran, is the possible disruption in oil supply and guerilla warfare against our "interests" abroad. It's simply a defense mechanism, saber rattling, whatever you would like to label it as, they are acting in terms of self preservation.

    Well this threat was based on Economic Sanctions not "threatening to blow you off the face of the map" as the article states. "Iranian ambassador to Moscow, Seyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi declared that Iran has the capabilities to carry out military strikes on US interests around the globe.This comes after President Obama announced the United States would freeze all Iranian assets held in the US."
