    Is it in Iran's interests?

    Since my position is to spread democracy, the needs of other countries are congruent with my country's needs.
    But certainly not congruent with your countries actions. The interests of the country have been well served in imposing non-democratic governments. Our needs before theirs right?

    And again, there's no objective ethical basis for such jingoism, and an obvious ethical basis against it when anti-democratic actions committed to benefit the U.S. political or financial classes cause suffering of a more extreme nature than the happiness they provide. The removal of Mossadeq and consolidation of power by the Shah is an example of this.

    Sorry, I thought you were joking.

    And how regime change in Iran will benefit your country?

    The reason we should conduct foreign relations is to positively affect world affairs. In our favor and in ways that are better for most individuals.

    Freedoms you enjoy are not yet universally enjoyed the world over.

    We would make it so.

    No way, baby! The Freedom train is rolling!

    It would remove a grave threat to the stability of this important region.

    They used to have a proper democracy, until we got involved.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Some of you fail to recognize the inherent evil of Iran's government. They spread terrorism throughout the world and are bent on expanding their Islamic Revolution.

    This is not a nice goal.

    Ancient History.

    Now we have the chance to rewrite it and the weapon is already built and pointed at their heads. We should be hearing more of this sort of news in the months to come.
