I think the best approach to Iran is to let our Europeans FRIENDS know that we will for the time being no longer worry about Iran. That is up to them to confront Iran. Iran is a bigger threat to Europe than us at this moment. I think we should then turn around and let Iran know of our intentions to lay back and give them this warning, if you Iran threaten us, harass or attack our ships, sponsor any terrorism against us we will be willing to respond in kind with everything we have if necessary. I think we should then tell Israel that they have the right to defend themselves but that if they go into Iran they are on their own. If we did this I am sure that the Europeans would take a different approach to Iran and Israel wouldn't have to worry about Iran's threat. As it is now Europe is using us to be the bad guys while they continue to do business as usual with Iran. It is time for them to take the lead. Iran with nukes could affect Europe more than us at this time.

Interestingly enough Reuters has a different translation for what was on the banner:
Trucks drove past bearing large slogans reading "Down with Israel" and "Down with USA."
I wish we had an Iranian ATS member that acually saw these banners and could tell us what they really said.
