    /shrug, I have no idea what you believe. But since shortly before the war happened he still shot missles at our airplanes enforcing the No Fly zone, and me being one of the persons sometimess on those planes he occasionally shot at, maybe I took it a bit personal. But the fact that I was depoloyed to the region and didn't receive civilian news for a longtime during that time period, only intel briefs, I cannot actually reply to discussions on the subject of why we invaded and also why I refrain from discussing reasons and what I know was going on. Why did we invade, simple, the President ordered us to, so we did it. Why did he order us to, something I will not discuss, but my personal feelings was "it's about damned time", really don't care about why he finally made the decision, I believed in it, still do and have absolutely unshakable faith that it was right (kind of have to keep that faith, knowing you helped kill thousands of people would kind of screw up your mind if you didn't have absolute faith that you were right to do so.)

    Obviously you can't give an honest straightforward answer to the question.

    They have every right to set their own standards, adopt their own cultures and act the way they want toward the people who choose to live there.
    What? We're talking about human rights and representation. That's not exactly imperialism. One minute you disregard any religious person and the next you support running a nation as a dark-age totalitarian theocracy.

    You can't bomb and kill people into democracy.. and shouldn't try.. If democracy had ever been our goal we wouldn't have tried to assassinate the mosadeegh three times.

    What US interests? Do you mean oil? They have always been willing to sell us oil.

    Don't you love it when people talk about the Iranian people as if they have "choices."

    It's hard to believe, but I seen it.
    And you've successfully argued against none of it. You just wave your arms around feigning offense, like that actually proves any of it wrong.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I don't want anyone to be killed, but I also don't want the crazy leaders of Iran to have nuclear weapons.
