    I never compared them. Where are you getting that from? My response was strictly to Johnny's comment that claimed we're not an insane theocracy because we're a Christian country.

    The United States does not intentionally target innocent people. Iran tortures and kills it's own citizens and is led by a crazy theocracy, whereas the United States is not. This you cannot deny.

    And we justify the killing of innocent people to attain a greater good. Gee, I wonder who else does that?

    It seems some people have 3 arguments:

    1. The US nukes civilians, so what are we worried about?
    2. Fk Israel (my favorite defense of Iran, haha).
    3. Iran getting nukes is fair.

    It's hard to believe, but I seen it.

    Man, is this a political debate tonight or a comedy show. Are you really so clueless that you think the MAD principle will work with muslim extremist? The best we can hope for from Iran with nukes is that they continue wanting to kill Sunni Muslims more than they want to kill us or Israel. Entirely possible since they do spend a lot more time and resources killing Sunni's than anyone else.

    I go by deeds, not words.. The fact is the US is responsible for far more deaths of innocent people in the Middle East than is Iran during your lifetime.
