    Hype and fear mongering. Iran hasn't the war history of Israel or the US.

    People can disagree, but it's arguably just as naive to think that Muslims are so different from other humans that they would commit national suicide.

    Even if the religious leaders are crazy enough to place the order, I don't believe their military leadership would push the button. Military men (of all nationalities) tend to be realists.

    Whereas the U.S (or anywhere else) was created in a state of perfection?

    If managing to avoid another war (even if temporarily) is screwing "us" again, I suppose. But I would imagine that at best it hurts the MIC of war profiteers. And maybe pisses off bored soldiers and hawks, but that's about it.

    MURDERED? Zero, unless you can post info proving that murdering innocents was ever a matter of official policy. We'll be waiting.

    Wow!! You have to time travel to that end to point to Persian aggression. Modern day Iran is no warmongering country, and for the chief power abusers of the century to be pointing at anybody is not legitimate.

    If in the pursuance of their interests innocent civilians get killed and YOU wish to define that as murder, then when the US kills innocent civilians in pursuant of our interests, it too must be murder. The point being apdst, the label you attach to the death is meaningless to the Iraqi, Pakistani, Afghani, Yemeni civilians dying by US aggressions in their neighbourhoods. It's murder when they do it and its always foreign policy when we do it.

    You are right about the part that people can disagree. You and me in the case.

    Muslim extremists are different that other humans. Reference thousands dead from suicide bombers in churches, schools, police stations. And they aren't acting from a national/majority collective. But a small minority still constitutes many hundreds that will carry out murderous atrocities....

    Wasn't it you who time traveled back to settlers of this nation, and the early US to highlight our own illegitimacy as a nation? I see, only you can do that right?

    Modern day Iran is no warmongering country, and for the chief power abusers of the century to be pointing at anybody is not legitimate.
    No one is warmongering...It would be nice though if we didn't just drop our pants and lay prostrate in hopes that our enemies will somehow like us...Your contempt of your own nation noted.
