    I think it is rather impossible for you to say that.

    Do you seriously think Saddam would have prevented Iran from working to develop nuclear weapons? Do you think he would have prevented Iran from funneling money to Syria and various terrorist organizations?

    I have to say that I think you are living in a dream world.

    I think Clinton probably thought the same thing in regard to Al Qaeda back in the 90's. Look what that got us: 9/11.

    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.

    You have the ability to watch CNN, look at YouTube videos, read press media reports or for a military perspective do a little research at Janes as to what Hamas and Hezbollah are and want. There are numerous threads here on this very topic that follow the forum rules, which posting them here would not.
    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.

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.
    I wish I would have read this post from you to me before I responded to the previous post... because I would not have responded to you at all.

    A threat is a realistic chance of being attacked and severely damaged by a country. I would've said, yes, that Iran poses a credible threat at one time being ran by fundamentalists and having not much to lose. But now that they're having some economic success and stability with their current regime, I don't see them risking it as easily.

    I would've said Russia lately had been an almost capitalist partner, before the Ukraine incident, though now they're looking like the most dangerous nation.

    It all changes on the world stage in the matter of weeks to months sometimes. China is another seemingly capitalist partner that continues to build it's military, annex islands and border territory, always being assertive and economically aggressive.

    Besides Russia and China, there are few nations that can pose a serious threat to the US. Terrorism is vicious and requires attention but it's not going to destroy our way of life. We have over 37,000 people dieing in road crashes each year alone.
