Everyone knows you are pro iran/muslims if not actually iranian.
Anyone that thinks I am Iranian is an idiot.
Actually the question is why is iran terrified of Israel? Obviously they must be as they have created and funded their bastard groups hamas and hezbollah to do their fighting for them.Damn cowards and the only"idiots"on this site support these despotic regimes.Such as the iranian theocracy, stoning pregnant women etc.
Israel is not afraid of Iran. And let us be totally honest.
Sure they aren't that's why for the last twenty years they have been trying to get America to invade for them.
America IS PRO Israel.
No America isn't our bought and paid for government is PRO Israel. If America was so pro Israel then we wouldn't have billboards like this going up.
We are against muslim fanatics that want to kill us and that includes crazy arise Iranians whose religious leaders Still call for the destruction of Israel.
Yes those Muslim fanatics that want to kill us. How dare them for getting upset because we invade their nations and destroy them based on a bunch of lies. also the destruction of Israel bit came from Israel's PM the Iranian president said that Zionism will fade from the pages of time.
The world wants to act like you want to be a part of civilized world.
Iran is acting like part of the civilized world more than Israel. What nation is Iran wiping off the planet like Israel is doing with Palestine?
Make no mistake though, America will support Israel over Iran every day of the week, till the end of time.... Not going to change.
We would be better off supporting neither of them. We would save billions that is wasted on Israel alone. We need that money fixing our own nation.
Proud to be an American and a veteran
I am also a proud American an veteran and I don't want to see my fellow brother in arms die fighting the wars of a terrorist nation like Israel. If a nation hasn't attacked America then America shouldn't be attacking them.

Cruz: Israel Strike Against Iran ‘Could Happen In A Matter Of Months’
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told a small gathering of pro-Israel American leaders Tuesday that an Israeli strike against Iranian nuclear facilities “could happen in a matter of months.” “In my view, [Iranian Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei believes there is no credible deterrence from the United States, there’s not realistic risk of significant consequence for moving forward with their nuclear development,” the Republican told the Spring National Leadership Meeting of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) at the Willard Hotel. “That means, that if they keep going forward, I think if it comes down to it, I have real confidence that the nation of Israel will act to preserve her national security, even if this administration will not act first. And that could happen sooner rather than later — that could happen in a matter of months.”
So it looks like Cruz is doing the Israeli two step after his latest visit to Israel. How many times will our politicians keep repeating this lie that Israel will strike Iran? Israel have been saying for years that they are going to strike Iran but never does anything to back it up. If they are going to attack then do it just leave America out of it.
“I don’t think Israel should have to act to prevent Iranian nuclear-weapons capability because it is so profoundly in U.S. national security interests that we should act, rather than forcing Israel to act,” he said, “but I do take some comfort that if this administration will not defend our interests, at the very least Israel will defend her interests.”
Yes Iran is such a threat to America. Their air force can't reach here and their Navy would be lucky to reach here and if they did they would have to go through our Navy. Iran being a threat to America is nothing but a lie that is told to get America to fight Israel's wars for them. Politicians that support Americans going to die fighting another nations wars should be thrown out of office.
Sorry, but you seem to ignore the progression of "Nuclear Powers".
You ignore the fact that the Arab world doesn't see eye to eye with the Persian version. The Saudis are very against a nuclear Iran and would be forced into a similar development. Syria, then others also develop them or with oil money outright buy them.
Can you honestly say that as big a mess as the mid-east has been since the British messed it up after WWI that Nuclear proliferation in the region wouldn't be an insanity???
Screw Urainium control or "fair".
I don't care whose sensitivities are stepped on to prevent it.
In August 2013 the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) admitted that it was involved in both the planning and the execution of the coup, including the bribing of Iranian politicians, security and army high-ranking officials, as well as pro-coup propaganda. The CIA is quoted acknowledging the coup was carried out "under CIA direction" and "as an act of U.S. foreign policy, conceived and approved at the highest levels of government."
CIA in 2013? Of course!! Iran's involvement in funneling explosives and personnel into Iraq makes Iran an adversary. I'd expect no less from the CIA...and lousy results, also.
You seem to package Iran as some innocent here. having zero interest in Iraq or dominating the region in general.
Frankly, whether Israel is a "declared" nuclear power is not germane and seems nothing more than a "misdirect" from the point I was making about mid-east proliferation potentials.
I have a few Iranian friends, some Jewish, some see things your way and some couldn't be happier that they're out of the region and in the U.S..
All I personally can do is put myself in Israeli shoes from '48 forward and I wouldn't do things much differently than they have.
In both cases the alternative is even worse. Those that don't like it? Oh well....
