Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
We are damned if we do, and damned if we don't....We have tried both....But when the chips are down the overwhelming cry of the world is "where is the US?" So spare me the self loathing, or self guilt over being born in the greatest country on the face of the earth, with the strongest military ever seen since the Roman empire, that is not used for conquest.
Get with the program here, because the voices that are tearing down, or eroding the authority of America to remain as the preeminent force for peace, and good in the world, are the same voices that turn a blind eye as Assad kills hundreds of thousands, the same that refuses to lift a finger as millions die in Rwanda by the machetes blade, and the same voice that choose the naive path of considering every despot in the world as equal in moral authority, when that despot would kill you first, after your defense of them achieved their dominance.
Neville Chamberlain was not wrong in the 30s because he wanted peace in our time, he was wrong because in his aspiration of that peace he refused to see his adversary for who they were. And that type of miscalculation of others lives on in today's liberal.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

I mean, if they want to hold a grudge forever, then so be it, although that scenario really doesn't make sense either since our alleged meddling resulted is the reason why the current leadership is in control of Iran. According to some, we pull all the strings, so why would the leadership hate us?
In this world, we have to watch out for our own best interests to survive as a country. We support Israel and NOT Iran because it benefits us to do so obviously.
Of all the things Iran does to PROVE it is run by irrational leaders, I don't know what you would expect from anyone. Like I keep saying, you cannot negotiate with insanity. It's like trying to reason with a drunk!! Then, you are left with few options, but these kinds of threats cannot just go ignored.
It's remarkable for anyone to consider Iran a belligerent when Saudi Arabia is in the region. Heck, Pakistan is a bigger antagonist than Iran and they're a nuclear power.
chrisL needs to brush up on her geopolitics because she is way off. Probably has some connection to Defense contractors.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
