    Honestly, I am surprised we have not heard more arguments like the one above. The U.S has no standing on humanitarian issues when it comes to using force because we have lost our credibility. I do have to doubt the Iranian rhetoric that the United States will suffer if military actions occurs. We have heard it before from other countries, namely North Korea, and nothing ever comes of it. Either way it is an interesting statement and it is an interesting situation that President Obama has gotten the United States into.
    That and a fart from a fat man really stinks up the place....Yawn.

    If America can't call out Syria on humanitarian claims because of our track record, why on earth is Iran pointing fingers?

    That aside, I hope we don't get into that mess.

    Its amazing you don't realize the ridiculolus irony of you suggesting the U.S. has no standing on humanitarian issues based off you giving standing to Iran's opinions regarding whether or not someone should have standing on Humanitarian issues.

    Iran threatens brutal attacks on Americans, Obama family | The Daily Caller

    This is incredible, I'd like to know if this is a hoax or if he really made the threat.

    The WSJ is saying it a little different. They say that the US "claims" to have intercepted communications between the Iranians and militants instructing them to do so!!! When the US gets god damn good and ready to bomb a country, Katy bar the door. There's no telling the distance we can go in fixing intelligence neatly around the policy.

    "a former Iranian official has warned of mass abductions and brutal killings of American citizens around the world and the rape and killing of one of Obama’s daughters should the United States attack Syria.
    Alireza Forghani, the former governor of southern Iran’s Kish Province, threw down the gauntlet last week. Forghani is an analyst and strategy specialist in the supreme leader’s camp and closely aligned with Mehdi Taeb, who heads the regime’s Ammar Strategic Base, a radical think thank, and thus speaks with the blessing of the Islamic regime.
    “Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then we will see the … loss of U.S. interests [through terrorist attacks],” he threatened. “In just 21 hours [after the attack on Syria], a family member of every U.S. minister [department secretary], U.S. ambassadors, U.S. military commanders around the world will be abducted. And then 18 hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread [around the world].”

    See...now this is the kind of **** that tends to unify us. Talk all you want about your All Akbar bull**** and your impotent threats. But threaten our kids? **** you, bitches...its on. And isnt it laughingly pathetic that these 'holy' warriors turn to rape and attacking children as the pinnacle of their manhood.

    Yeah...that thing you think it is doing? It aint. You think it will make people stop...become fearful...retreat. Nope. just the opposite. I dont want there to be a war. I dont want us to engage Syria unless there is real actually proof as to WHO is using chemical weapons and if there IS, we need to eliminate them, whether it is the Syrian government or the rebels. But...if Iran wants to get all froggy? No 'targeted strikes'. Level that entire ****ing country. Good riddance. You like 'messages'? Ive got one for you.
