    That's become an alarmingly reliable test regarding the Far Right in general. Usually, whatever they oppose is good, and whatever they support is bad.

    there is no reason to distrust the iranians ... as you have pointed out
    Come to think of it, I'm fond of the USA also, but not of its government. Maybe I'm an Iranian at heart.

    We really only need to worry about our missile defense system. When our efforts our peacekeeping extend to military invasion, nobody praises or thanks us, and few offer anything in the way of tangible support.

    to do what?
    iran has not initiated war with another sovereign nation in 200 years
    we cannot say the same
    and that is especially true of israel

    so, if the question is which country do you trust not to initiate a war with another nation, then between the USA and iran, the answer must be iran
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Mossadegh wasn't democratically elected. He was selected by parliament, after the sitting prime minister was assissinated. After he took power, he dissolved the parliament and installed himself as dictator.

    Wow.

    Reading some of these responses, I'd swear, some of you are pissed off about our suddenly reduced chances of bombing Iran. I'll remember this the next time someone describes libertarianism as "peaceful."

    But it's okay. I'll take comfort in knowing that John Kerry and several other world leaders have just helped to make the world a safer place.

    Iran funds Hezbollah. They!ve been waging war for 20 years.

    This deal increased our chances of going to war with Iran.

    At the very least, they created a good pretense to bomb/sanction Iran later.
