I never said I wanted anyone to attack anyone else. Just trying to respond to all the one-sided posts - such as yours.

Nobody likes any of that, but bombing the hell out of the country you are trying to "save" from this savagery seems like a stupid idea.

What are they lying about exactly?
If it's the fact that Iran is intent on developing nuclear weapons and is deceiving the world including its own allies (Russia and China) in the process, then they're not on their own. British, French and US intelligence concurs. We knew about Qom three years before they fessed up to it, remember.
I suspect this will descend into the usual rhetoric about Iran being peaceful and trying to defend itself, in spite of the fact that it's the world's largest sponsor of international terrorism, has no free press and brutally suppresses its own population, and no one is attacking them.
This is just another pathetic attempt to divert attention away from Iran and onto Israel to hide their own short comings.
You may fall for it, but no-one of any importance does.

After reading this the Kernel has to ask, are you in agreement with the US having Saudi Arabia as an ally?

Iran needs to realize that the powerful nations on this earth have said, "NO". They are not listening. They are defiant. Nothing changes who is powerful on this planet today. Iran must listen or they will get slapped around.
Of course they are defiant! Good for them for not bending over and taking the bully stick. Your reason for accepting bullying is mind boggling.
Neither the US or Israel has had their testicles removed. They have big kahunas and will bark and growl and if you don't heed those warnings then you will be bitten.
You get enough nations to stand up against these bullies, they will eventually bite back with far greater force. Thats actually what is starting to happen in todays world. Nations are begining to stand up againt the American Empire. The US is bleeding and will fall by their own actions.
Iran is making things worse instead of better. Why doesn't Iran just say OK? After they get chomped half to death they will say OK like a little wimp. Iran is on the wrong track and now seem to be ripping off their shirt and holding up their fists like dummies.
Why ? Do I really need to answer that question ? Why should any nation succum to threats and manipulation ? I hope the States are starting to have less and less people that share the same thought process as you just displayed. Thats very sad and disgusting what you just shared there. Expected I guess from a nation use to bullying other nations with their might.
My money is on Iran losing by knockout in the first round.

Why would we bomb them, anyways?
Oh- right... because this is America, and we have a Nobel Peace Prize recipient serving at the helm.
Is it me, or is the world turning into one big soap opera (but with worse acting)?

Show a link to back what you just stated. You just stated rhetoric bs published on the MS media. Show me one link where those very words were used by Irans PM.

By what moral standard is attacking Iran the right thing to do?
Is it by Yours, mine or theirs.
Do we actually have a moral standard that we can use to judge others with. That we actually fallow our selves?
-- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
Do you even read the opening links of threads you respond to, the words of the Iranian official seem clear enough to me.
The latter I suspect.
If you honestly believe that Ahmadinejad's intention in that speech was to infer anything but outright hostility and violence towards Israel, then no mere quotes I could provide will convince you otherwise.
You do know that he is a Holocaust denier, right? No one has any ambiguity about his statements on that one, do you?

"Even if one American or Zionist missile hits our country, before the dust settles, Iranian missiles will blow up the heart of Israel,"
