We have defeated Communism, Facism, Socialism, Nazism
These things have not been defeated. Many countries still have live by these various isms
No countries live under Nazism today. Communism is but a shadow of its former self. Facism exists in places like Iran, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan..But we're (the Americans, NATO, EU allies and Canada) are trying to do something about it. I have nothing to say about socialism

Shown what people? Who are you to see that kind of evidence? There isn't really room for civilian level involvment in these types of deals (so why should they release it to the public before they deem its safe) and they arent publicized until finalized because of security reasons (counter intelligence operations getting a head start). We're already at war with Iran, Iraq is just the proxy battlefront at the moment. It might shift into Iran itself if Iran keeps sticking its nose in Iraq's business.
I love how people come up with the idea that we the people have no say in what is important to the country. We the people have ALL the say in this country, and people that believe as you do only further legitimize the degradation of our right to know what our government is doing. Otherwise, who is held accountable? What the hell are checks and balances for if we don't exercise them, and enforce them to the letter?

If I were you I would study all wars the US has been in and why. Your blanket statements dont add up to anything my friend.
Iran is the leading state supporter of islamic terrorism.
I believe once they are dealt with (and seria) through a thorough air campaign Iraq will have a chance at governing themselves with the moderate democratically elected government.
Israel will will be able to live free and the a new moderate palestinian state can be born. I think the time is now or never.

If they had the evidence, would they not present it when making the claim in the first place?
It's kinda like a bad cops show where the detective makes allegations against the suspect bluffing them with false information hoping they will slip up and confess thier crimes.....
The Iranian officials appeared true to their word. During a September 2004 speech in Bushehr, home of Iran's declared nuclear reactor, Samadi announced the formation of a "martyrdom-seeking" unit from Bushehr while Hossein Shariatmadari, editor of the official daily Keyhan, called the United States military "our hostage in Iraq," and bragged that "martyrdom-operations constitute a tactical capability in the world of Islam."
Then, on November 23, 2004, in response to the U.S. campaign against Iraqi insurgents in Fallujah, Samadi announced the formation of the first suicide unit. Named after the chief bomb-maker of Hamas, Yahya Ayyash, also known as Al-Muhandis (The Engineer) assassinated on January 5, 1996, it consisted of three teams of unknown size: the Rim Saleh ar-Riyashi team, named after Hamas's first female suicide bomber; the Mustafa Mahmud Mazeh team, named after a 21-year-old Lebanese who met his death in a Paddington hotel room on August 3, 1989, priming a book bomb likely aimed at Salman Rushdie; and the Ahmad Qasir team, named after a 15-year-old Lebanese Hezbollah suicide bomber whose operation demolished an eight-story building housing Israeli forces in Tyre, southern Lebanon, on November 11, 1982. Samadi said there would be an additional call for volunteers at Tehran's largest Iran-Iraq war cemetery, the Behesht-e Zahra, the following week, and even promised to consider establishing special elementary schools to train for suicide operations.
He kept his word. On December 2, 2004, the Headquarters gathered a crowd in the Martyr's Section of Behesht-e Zahra, where those who conducted suicide operations are honored. According to the Iranian Mehr News Agency, the organization unveiled a memorial stone commemorating the "martyrs" killed in the 1983 Hezbollah attacks on the U.S. Marine and French peacekeepers' barracks in Beirut. They set the stone next to one commemorating Anwar Sadat's assassin. Samadi concluded the ceremony with a raging speech, declaring, "The operation against the Marines was a hard blow in the mouth of the Americans and demonstrated that despite their hollow prestige and imagined strength … they [have] many vulnerable points and weaknesses. We consider this operation a good model. The cemeteries in which their dead are buried provide an interesting view and cool the hearts of those Muslims who have been stepped upon under the boots of the Yankees while they were ignored by the international community."
