    Iran is, in fact, the largest source of state funded terrorism.
    Still waiting for a link or source.

    So, again, yes. Plus, they fund, train and equip Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Front and many others. They bring them to Iran, train them, equip them and then send them back. These groups are proxies for Iran.

    Keep in mind that as an invading force with reasons still unknown to me, with numbers too large to be deemed terrorist all the while, that's exactly what you were doing in Iraq, masquerading as liberators my ass, yeah all this and that you have an issue with a few Iranians coming to aid in defense of their fearing neighbor? And you call Iran a nation of terror when that's what we do buddy, we F stuff up and call it a mission accomplished, b'cause that's exactly what was achieved.

    Bear in mind that Beau's a soldier, he bears a different responsibility in such things than the politicians responsible for policy. Otherwise, yes I agree with you that in the pursuit of "our interests" we have done nothing different then Iran, and a whole lot worse, and more widespread throughout the world. And our leadership has supported and used militant Islamic groups as proxies from Carter on through in the ME. With the support of the Mujahideen in Afghanistan, which gave rise to the Taliban, Reagan's arms sales (against the wishes of congress) to Iran, Bush's training of the MEK in Nevada (a group on the US terrorist list) and more recently Obama's use of Al Qaeda to topple Gaddafi, (just look at the mess Libya is in now) to the smuggling of arms out of the Benghazi annex to the insurgents in Syria via Turkey who was charged with the vetting that allowed the Islamic State to come into possession of US arms. No, the finger we're pointing at Iran and Russia for that matter has three pointing back at us.

    That is rather laughable being the single biggest check on Iran 13 years ago was the Sunni dictator next door, Saddam Hussein. Had we left Saddam in power and continued the policy of containment, Iran would be no more of a threat today than it was in the 90s. ISIS would not be a problem today either.

    Exactly. And the same is going to hold true for Libya and Syria.
