By doing so you start to export culture to these nations. The people of Iran have never been the issue and with over 60% of the population being under the age of 35, I doubt it will be. Yes they have a hardline streak, so doesn't every other nation, but if we open ourselves up with friendship to these nations, down the road they will become allies not enemies.
The U.S. government in particular needs to understand that the people are sick of paying for empire building. I for one very much think this. Instead of a foreign policy that is written, developed, and deployed by 60-70 yr old men who are pissed about past trangressions, we need new blood that has an open mind.
The only reason why Iran is an enemy is because we don't respect them. Learn to respect, accept, and develop friendship, and we would have alot less enemies.
BTW, I fully support Isreal, this being said, the U.S. needs to stop paying for the welfare state of the world, we can't afford it. Isreal being one of the largest recievers of Aid, needs to learn to stand on there own, or become a territory.
IT IS NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE U.S. GOVERMENT TO SEND AID TO ANYONE. If the people want to do this, so be it, but the goverment should spend BILLIONS of dollars on aid, that we don't have.
I am open minded and am against the NWO.
