It seems your the one trying paint the Saudis as some victim. Saudis arent very different from Sunni terrorists which they defend and oh do you know that your beloved Saudis arent doing anything agaisnt the Terrorists in Yemen?



Huh??? I've never even mentioned those assholes, at all.

Persians have more rich history, and were behind recent medical achievements. Can the Pro Saudis crowd name me anything that the Saudis had ever done useful?

Nice deflection. For someone who defends the Saudis and claims Iran is behind 9/11.

Your spin again??? Who defends the Saudis? Not me. They're not part of the thread.

Ironic in that I defended Iran on this court settlement....LMAO

Iran came in, wired the building for weeks and did this... Right?

Or debris and jet flew over building 6, started viable fires on the lower floors, on the opposite side of building and took out this building!

I have zero use for Iran. Yet I see zero connection with 9/11.

If one is going to sue Iran, then sue them for the hundreds, if not thousands, killed by Iranian IEDs sent to Iraq
by Iran. Now your talking...




Then prepare for a a lot of counter lawsuits from all over the world where the U.S has delivered weapons to.

LOL, agreed. Not to mention just about every other western nation out there.

The difference being active use of those systems with, at least, passive support
of their use by the regime in Iran. Supplying weapons has a bit of distinction from actual use.

Cool, I think I will sue the US for damages done by some volcano eruption or maybe for the tsunami a few years ago... Oh, and Fukushima of course. I mean, the US never stated that they had nothing to do with either, so according to this judge they are guilty, right?

US intentions to get rid of Iran are definitely not new, and its hypocrite warmonger attitude as well : remember the Iran-Contra Affair.
Don't forget too that the Iran-Iraq war started with the Iraqis trying to invade Iran by taking advantage of the mess induced by the Islamic revolution.
Saddam was much more 'secular' than the Ayatollahs but, he was also perfectly aware of the Sunni/Shia divide and was following his ideological line.
It took shape a 'Jihad' for the Iranians, it reinforced the personality cult of Saddam in Iraq.

I really don't see how one 'gets rid of' a country. The U.S. is on pretty good terms with various former enemies.

I'd give your view a bit more credence if you'd acknowledge Iran has something to do with it. Personally, I wouldn't give them, at least with the current batch running things, any slack whatsoever.

In any event, this ME mess is so beyond any rational solution at this point that I don't see any way out. Perhaps there was no other way out and this was going to occur no matter what. I still hold the Brits as 'the' major source for all this followed a close second by various tenets of Islam. Well, maybe the other way around.


Enjoy your day, sir.

Bull #.

USA intervention made Iraq WORSE and more dangrous!

Neocon foreign policy is a 100% FAILURE.

Iran never showed up in court to contest the payout, hence the default judgment. If frozen Iranian assets amount to $100 billion, IMO paying a 10% judgment is Iran's way of closing the books on 9-11 (the Saudis already were excused from owing a dime!) and moving forward as a legitimate power to deal with the crap left in the Middle East because of 9-11 (Iraq, Afghanistan). It's the price to pay for it's new future. I wish them well.

Heck, the United States "lost" at least $6 billion (some say $12b) from pallets of money flown into Iraq in 2004! In world finance, billions is the currency.

Zero evidence? Bulls**t.


I will take our statements over yours any day of the week
....mate. Don't need to prove anything to you. Last time I checked it isn't a popularity contest.

The line from Iran to Iraq for those IEDs are obvious....as were the insurgent movement, I might add. Anyone who is naïve enough to believe a nation that maintains Hamas and Hezbollah world-wide is an 'innocent' in all these games is wearing blinders.

As far as staying out of the Iran-Iraq war goes, both were puppets. Iran via Russia and Iraq via the U.S.. Done deal. Over. Let it go.

Iraq is a # hole due to Iraqis more as much as anything else.




Iran was a puppet of Russia? Dude what? Mikhail Gorbachev was kicked out of our country when he spewed more nonsense than he should have. Iran had the worst relations with Russia during those times. And for the record, Russians stood by saddam during Iran-Iraq war just like you did. She supplied them with numerous buk missiles

"As for the IEDs, you were in our backyard. Done deal. Over. Let it go" is what i would say if i had a bloated ego like you

But then again you didn't answer my question : If Iran really had sth to do with the IEDs then why didn't you bring this up in an international court or sth? Huh? Don't embarrass yourself

Saddam was your best buddy when it came to Iran and it was ok if he massacred Iranians with WMDs and mustard gas.....

But when it came to 9/11, only then he was the devil.

Iraq became a sh#t hole exactly after US invasion. Just a coincidence. Not related at all

Somehow agree, it all started with the divide of the former empires for (mainly) colonialist interests.
You just can't imo, consider a 'stable' M-E without a solution to the Israelo-Palestinian situation.
Consider that Iran endured the embargo for a pseudo nuclear weapon program while there is another country, who has nukes (see Mordechai Vanunu), a long tradition of impunity and middle-fingering towards the rest of the world.
And who obviously take advantage of the current mess in the region ...

If only the US was defending its own interests ...

During the period you and I referred to, the Iraq-Iran war era? There were times when the Ayatollah got a bit carried away and Russia parked a few tactical nukes right on Iran's border....around the time of the embassy hostage fiasco, but other than that, to this day, Iran has Russian aircraft and weaponry.


Have I got this wrong?

Israeli-Palestine 'situation', that's a key to the ME mess? LMAO. There's a imo for you.

Let's see, now that the 'brotherhood' has received the 'boot' from a brave Egyptian citizenry, Egypt and Israel are getting along fine. Jordan and Israel both trained their pilots at Red Flag at the same time and have gotten along for quite a while. Now the Saudis and Israel share intel with each other and Russia co-ordinated with Israel before beginning air strikes in Syria.

Syria is no threat to Israel whatsoever. So whose left? Only Iran, largely via Hamas and Hezbollah....

To summarize, the middle east nations couldn't care less about 'Palestine' at this juncture, actively work with Israel in more serious issues and likely wish the Palestinian issue would go away, is my guess.

Israel has never been in a more secure position in it's history than it is right now and won't be changing it's position one iota. The overall ME situation has zero to do with Israel-Palestine. It has to do with Turkey and Iran wanting a return of the glorious empires of the past and the Saudis keeping their control. The Kurds just wanting their own nation.

Internal power plays to see gets to pick up the pieces.
