I'm just curious Dave,
Did anything happen in Iran in, oh say 1952, 1953, or 1954, that might royally have pissed off the Iranians towards America? Remember now, in the
early 50s, Iran was a FIRST WORLD country. They were PRO WEST. What happened in the mid 50s to cause them to become anti-west in a mere 20 years?
Time and time again, these Islamics keep saying "Quit screwing around with our countries". Is that so hard to understand?
It's amazing how many times, in life, and in countries, if you leave your neighbor alone, he will leave you alone.
By all means, if we leave them alone, and they screw with us, turn them into a glass parking lot. But not until WE LEAVE THEM ALONE FIRST.
Granted, this would require putting the CIA on a leash, and we saw what happened to the last president to try that (JFK).
Edit to add: One other thing: WHICH COUNTRY put Saddam in power?
