    Of course. In response to our actions in their region. They are acting in the best interest of their state, being a rational actor.

    I doubt it. Al Qaeda (and related groups) are a much bigger problem than Hezbollah.

    Yeah, I just finished reading the entire Militia Code. It's pretty long. I could find myself being transferred into the active duty U.S. Army by being a veteran. ####, I'm a Marine !

    Veterans are stuck in the Militia until they are 64 years of age.

    Non vets are only obligated between the ages of 17 to 45 years of age.

    Like I said, this is how international diplomacy and foreign policy works. If the criteria was being an angel, we wouldn't be on earth.

    Re: Iran sending warships close to US borders

    Iran can point out one certain incident involving a united states warship as a source of grief between them and the united states. that incident involved the shooting down of iran air flight 655 by the U.S Vincennes.

    Iran Air Flight 655 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Iran Air Flight 655 was an Iran Air flight from Tehran, Iran, to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, via Bandar Abbas, Iran. On 3 July 1988, at the end of the Iran–Iraq War, the aircraft serving the flight, an Airbus A300 B2-203, was shot down over the Strait of Hormuz by SM-2MR surface-to-air missiles fired from the United States Navy guided missile cruiser USS Vincennes. The aircraft, which had been flying in Iranian airspace over Iran's territorial waters in the Persian Gulf on its usual flight path, was destroyed. All 290 on board, including 66 children and 16 crew, died.
