    What's your point? Don't play the "I'm going to ignore your source because I don't like their name" game. The content is supported. Doesn't matter who the messenger is.

    I don't usually play that game, either; but, there are some sources that aren't at all credible and Antiwar.com is one of them.

    Unless you can actually discredit them your accusation isn't valid.

    I discredited it, before you even posted it.

    Regardless, what I'm saying is that it's not as clear cut as once thought. I do believe Iran supported Saudi Hizballah, as to whether or not they were the brains behind the attack is another story. There is certainly a case of vicarious liability to be made against Iran.

    Let me rephrase then, if you can actually show proof that your discredit of them as a source is warranted you're just blowing **** out of your ass.

    Antiwar.com are the clowns that claim that American forces directly killed over 1 million Iraqis. That lie, by itself, should be proof enough.

    Again, the use of the word "we." We/your thoughts don't count. The US govt. doesn't care--it works for corporations, not you or me.

    I don think you understand what the term "rational actor" means when it comes to international actions, especially actions such as these.
    Iran is a rational actor because the Iranian gov like any gov 1.)wants to stay in power and 2.)peruse its best interest
    They are tired of the US sanctions and their military actions going on right outside their maritime borders, so what do they do they saber rattle. This is what they are doing to try to make the US make concessions. This is totally a rational actions.
    Rational actor does not mean what kind of gov they are or if the are oppressive or not..
    Are you honestly trying to pass off the mullahs who actually run Iran as rational? They are religious extremists.
