Neither is a threat to American sovereignty in any remotely meaningful way.
It is just American cowardice of the masses (with Neocons encouraging them) that sees these two as the boogie man.
Plus, the economy refuses to properly recover (with the income disparity growing), so the Dem leaders want something to distract the ignorant masses from the virtually stagnant economy during election time. So ISIS is that distraction.

ISIS is here and now. The greater threat today, but not tomorrow. Today's problem, but not tomorrows. But make no mistake, Iran is a slowly growing giant.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
The only reason why ISIS and Iran are a threat is because we keep trying to antagonize them. They wouldnt be threats to us if we just left them alone...
Besides scraps with Palestine, not much going on there these days. And I trust Israel a thousand times more than somewhere like Iran.

Of cause .... if Iran gets the bomb they Will use it, either themselves or through one of their proxies.
And I could care less if you don't believe me.
Btw one of the historical accounts of the post Ft. Devens, Mass doesn't have the 10th Special Forces there. But not only was it there from about 1968 to sometime later, I was there too as a military dependent. I remember when the 10th relocated from Bad Tolz, Germany to Ft. Devens. So much for the accuracy of alleged military historians.
However, they are in no way as dangerous, as a country, to the US and the world as the Iranian Ayatollah and Clerics are, who actually run that country and have complete control of their terrorist, military and nuclear programs.
The Saudis use private funds more than use a structured, official, government program to train, fund, equip and provide planning and operational support for terrorist groups around the world.
The Saudis are not true allies (friends), the Saudis have Islamist radicals within the royal family... but... the Iranians are far worse and far more dangerous.
Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
