    You can't expect ISIS to have any puppets yet.
    If ISIS would have had 50% of Iran's power, than we would be talking for another subject here.

    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.

    Possible and it depends on how one looks at that area. Terrorist threats and immediate destabilization of the area, ISIS is definitely the immediate threat. Iran is a long term threat and Iran's potential for havoc to the area is more powerful. I would put Iran in the category of the old USSR as an nemesis to both us and the region. They seem to use covert means at exporting their influence and once they attain the bomb, there will be little we can to to them in Iran. We will be stomping out their fires they start all over the area. But that is a little off in the future. Iran's leaders seem to weigh risks like the leaders of the old USSR before doing anything, ISIS leaders do not, ISIS leaders are more of the maniac type, unstable, where Iran's seems to be more level headed, saner if you will.

    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.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Saddam Hussein was a good check on Iran. But a "slowly growing giant"????

    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...

    Containment worked fine when Hussein, Mubarak, Gaddafi and Assad were in power. US policy in the ME is responsible for the rise of the Islamic State.

    Israel, really?

    Besides scraps with Palestine, not much going on there these days. And I trust Israel a thousand times more than somewhere like Iran.

    While agree it's silly to think all Muslims nations are threats to humanity. It's pretty obvious the Islamic world sorely lacks the ability to unleash any sort of global military campaign if they were all violent, it'd be a suicide mission at best.

    I don't believe it I know it from first hand information. And it doesn't get anymore reliable than that. It's not my problem if you are naive enough to think everything you are told by your government is true, or historians are privy to clandestine operations.

    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.

    I suggest you look at any of my posts on this forum about the Saudis and their involvement in world terrorism. In fact, you can ask Montecresto, that "liked" your post, with whom I have had numerous conversations about them.

    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.

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.
