    Since I didn't specifically call anyone out, and you claim you weren't acting childish, I don't see why you'd even need to respond. Unless your subconscious made you post...

    Sinking ships in the Hormuz strait, and blocking the movement of supertankers, which Iran threatens to do if they are attacked has everything to do with this discussion. Sounds to me like you are the one that doesn't have a clue.
    You and obvious Child don't get it, so sometimes people like me get a little impatient over trying to educate the unreachable - sorry for letting myself get a little quick over it.

    Anyway.......... I will try again to teach you what you need to know in order to continue discussing the issue at hand.

    Your bit about iran threatening holds no water whatsover - if Iran had the capability to block the west's supertankers they would have done it.

    Try to understand this for just a wee moment - I say again, if Iran had the capabilty they would have done it - they do not the capability, and if they even tried, for all practical purposes, they would be wiped off the map - get it.

    And it's amusing watching people thank what is essentially a lie.
    Wow are you that Dumb on the subject ??? How much do you know about the Iran-Iraq War huh here are few items for you to go and digest.

    Lloyd's of London, a British insurance market, estimated that the Tanker War damaged 546 commercial vessels and killed about 430 civilian mariners. The largest portion of the attacks were directed by Iran against Kuwaiti vessels, and on 1 November 1986, Kuwait formally petitioned foreign powers to protect its shipping. The Soviet Union agreed to charter tankers starting in 1987, and the United States offered to provide protection for tankers flying the U.S. flag on 7 March 1987 (Operation Earnest Will and Operation Prime Chance). Under international law, an attack on such ships would be treated as an attack on the United States, allowing the U.S. Navy to retaliate. This support would protect neutral ships headed to Iraqi ports, effectively guaranteeing Iraq's revenue stream for the duration of the war.

    On 14 April 1988, the frigate USS Samuel B. Roberts was badly damaged by an Iranian mine, suffering 10 wounded but no dead. U.S. forces responded with Operation Praying Mantis on 18 April, the United States Navy's largest engagement of surface warships since World War II. Two Iranian oil platforms, two Iranian ships and six Iranian gunboats were destroyed. An American helicopter also crashed

    Shall I go on or ready to admit you have no clue about the subject once again.

    What haven't we done to piss these people off? At some point, some will say enough is enough and strike back.

    It's called blowback and not unexpected. Our problems are the direct result of an interventionist foreign policy.
    Failure to recognize danger of the Axis during WWII, and refusal to recognize AQ's potential of hitting us, lead us to the two most infamous events in US history. Defense is the best offense.

    Iran has every right to be pissed at us for supporting the Shay, but they paid us back already and need to get over it, and now they truly pose a threat to the area, which poses a threat to us.

    So, if Isreal hits them, they brought it on themselves. The USA didn't bring it on them.

    But Iran isn't dumb enough to attack the U.S. or it's allies without provocation (and it would be suicide), and frankly those of you that keep comparing Iran to Hitlers's aspirations to conquer the world and Blitzkreig Europe just plain baffles me. You people keep comparing apples to oranges and just like Bush you fail to think ahead to the ramifications of a preemptive war.

    We were obviously lax and in a way brought on 911 by once again by meddling in the Middle East. You can thank the Bush Dynasty for that as they are heavily involved with the Saudi royalty.

    Quite the simplification you have there TBone. BTW it's not Shay it's Shah. And it's not Isreal it's Israel. We are still supplying arms to their ideological foes Israel, and fighting a proxy war is nothing new for us, but oh don't we get enraged when someone else is doing it. You know, all those arms and stinger missiles we supplied to the Mujahideen in Afghanistan to kill the Russians, but we are outraged if Iran supplies weapons to insurgents in Iraq? Sounds like double standard to me. Oh wait I'm sorry we are the good guys and have never done anything horrendous to further our idealogy. My bad!

    Just want you to know I have no respect for the Mullahs or the retard they have for a president, and his shooting off of his mouth. And yes eventually Iran will get what is coming to them. But Israel hitting them will only bring out a hornets nest as many of the nuclear facilities are hardened and deep underground. As a former munitions expert I have doubts we even have what it takes to take them out.

    We cannot conform any nation that its people do not want to be. Saudia Arabia is much more closed off than Saudi Arabia yet no one mentions about conforming them or what about all the 2 billion people who still sleep in mud-huts that their ancestors used to sleep in?

    But the big difference between the two is that Russia is not a superpower anymore, it is a shadow of its former self. And now that Russia has adopted the system which the rest of the world uses it cannot any longer pose a threat to the USA.

    You seem to forget that the only people that have been successful in blowing up our buildings and attacking us in our homeland have been Saudia Arabians who werw working with the CIA. Something the CIA does not want for the American public to know, but it is a fact that the terrorists of 9-11 were told what to do and how to do it by the CIA.

    And why do you suppose this is? Because we are a proud, free people.
    It couldn't have anything to do with the fact that the US singularly accounts for 45% of the world's military spending, and perhaps not so much with being "proud" people? lol
