    Understand your point, even if you could trust the Iranians to keep it in the box.....some of their cohorts not so much.

    The lower the IQ, the quicker one resorts to violence as a tool for conflict resolution.

    That's all fine and good, unless your opponent sees war as a first resort.

    I don't think they do. It's pretty obvious they don't, actually.

    And clearly they don't. Should we compare the number of years that the US has been at war over the last hundred years, with Iran's record. Quit buying the propaganda for war and join the peace bandwagon, it really is the better route.

    What makes it obvious that they don't? Their refusal to halt nuke production, or sending naval cruise into the Atlantic?

    They can't, but I'm not seeing any indications that they clearly don't want to. Iran is Hebbolah's #1 supporter.

    Your quite the deal. You measure Iran's interest to run to war as a first resort, rather than last, by pointing to them sending a ship/ships into the Atlantic, when US ships are in most all waters!!

    And the US is SA's number one supporter. Stop feigning a position of righteousness to the US when we just as readily support terrorists when it meets with our "interests". Iran doesn't project it's military around the world interfering in everybody else's affairs. If the US can do so on the merits of "national interests" then so can others. And because the US has been doing that, at length, watch for more countries to be projecting themselves as some measure of push back, however small that may be.
