    That wasn't the question.

    The question was "If it was true or confrimed"

    Its ok show where you stand in a given scenario.

Does it not occur to you that the dissent movement in Iran also contains manipulative liars?
    Hey, let me help you out here, son...

    Suppose I stated my opinion was contingent upon confirmation? Wait, what's that you say? Oh, I did state that we needed confirmation? Really?

    Oh yeah...right here in bold:

    Now, suppose you actually read a ****ing post before you respond to it with stupid WillRockwell quips like, "it's a good thing you aren't in charge"?

    To those contributors who recommend bombing Iran based on these rumors....thank God you are not in charge.
    What's "the standard beating of demonstrators?" Is that not horrible in and of itself? Or is the fact that you find beating demonstrators to be a standard practice something one would find horrible? To paraphrase you, thank God you're not in charge of setting the standards for what's acceptable.

    I can't find anything on tv news either ... just a loving montage to that freak.

    I agree...if this is true, since we are already the world police anyways we may as well keep up the good roll and help these innocent civilians!

    Well it was just a matter of time. I agree with many of you here, as this is how I have felt from the beginning. We need to move to arm the resistance. If this is even partially true it's time to get involved. As I said in another thread, assault rifles, submachine guns, pistols, grenades, anti-tank weapons. We have stockpiles ComBloc weapons sitting on their border. Put it to good use.
    Trump Derangement Syndrome, or TDS, affects millions of right wing Americans. Symptoms include frequent use of "whataboutisms," irrational rants about how the DNC, GOP, MSM, FBI, NSA, CIA, and FB are all conspiring to get Trump, blaming Obama and/or Clinton for things Trump has done or is doing, and a bizarre admiration for Vladimir Putin. Known TDS vectors are Fox News and the @RealDonaltTrump twitter feed.

    Although it is easy to sympathize with the Iranians, it is not in the U.S. interest to get involved in the conflict.

    Practically speaking, the youth have little chance if they turn to violence, even with our support. The moment we offer aid, Khamenei will declare proof of American interference and brand the protesters as collaborators of western imperialists, then call in the revolutionary guard. The revolutionary guard is political army designed to deal with this sort of situation and are loyal to the current regime. Counterinsurgency is a very different game when you are content to use wide-scale slaughter and intimidation to win. In the end, it is likely that the current regime will stay in power and have a serious bone to pick with us. Furthermore, it would be yet more ammunition for the radicals who claim we are evil imperialists out to destroy the Muslim world.

    Ultimately, it is not the role of the U.S. to use weapons to promote democracy in the world. We have ignored hundreds of other instances of the people being attacked by there governments, and there is no reason to get involved this time either.

    Well, let's get for real here.

    When you say "the West", you're not really thinking France, Germany, Italy, or England is going to get involved, right? What you mean is "the United States".

    That's fine. The main unspoken reason the Bush Boy invaded Iraq was to place thousands of US troops on the Iranian western border. So, thanks to Bush, if we need to move into Iran, we can do it.

    This is not an opportunity for the US to stick its beak into Iran, no matter how many demonstrators are beaten in the streets. Although it is in the interest of some to bait the US into declaring war on fundamentalist Islam, there is nothing to be gained from it and very much to lose. Cowboy diplomacy is over.

    That was Khadaffy Duck and Libya.

    Reagan, however, had nothing to do with the bogus Iranian "guns for hostages" scandal the leftwing media made so much to-do about, the reference you quoted from whomever was still wrong.
