I dont know for sure, Seekerof, but I think it may have been the Russians who gave Iran their weapons. A major part of the cold war was the military industrial complex of two major nations feeding off of each other's competition; one would sell to one side, the other would sell to another side. It was quite the lucrative system, if you were in the biz.

The US can and should pay this out of principle, but theres not a good chance this will happen. Besides, the fed reserve would love it and the IMF would eat it up what with the major interest and inflation rates they could impose on such a massive influx of currency. But since it's "the right thing to do", none of the above applies.

Yes, SC, we did help them, but it was still a major quake and its timing was a bit... western? it's no big secret anymore that EQ's can be stimulated by space-based lasers and resonance devices. Still, the Iranian government could have done a bit more to improve their earthquake readiness since they are well aware of the faultlines they are nearby.

No, we shouldnt pay them Omega, we already have.

WE gave Iran a good chunk of alot of its weaponry. remeber the Iran0Contra scandal?

WE funded both sides of the war. Saddam and Iran, to keep them busy blowing each other up because we figured as long as they were busy attacking each other, they wouldnt bother anyone else.

So, the Iranians, with outstretched hands, gladly accepted all the crap we sold them and funded them, so this lawsuit is pretty funny.

Maybe Ill sue Iran for existing.

Perhaps we should charge them for all the hardware that was taken there from Iraq to keep us from blowing it up? I seem to remember all kinds of aircraft and whatnot being flown to Iran before/during GW1, and I don't remember anything about them giving it back...

I'm just curious...

Are they also going to sue...

China, France, the UK, Russia, Japan, The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Sweden, and maybe Germany as well ?

These countries all had a hand in supplying the WMD's, and WMD programs that Iraq had...

A list of the corporations that supplied Iraq with the equipment and other material it needed to develop biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons were presented by Iraq on December 7th 2002 in a 12,000-page report to both the International Atomic Energy Agency in Geneva, and the Security Council of the United Nations in New York.

On the 19/12/02 the Berlin Daily Die Tageszeitung reprinted portions of a leaked copy of the report.

B = biological weapon program
