You never heard Iran say that, either.
We are a peace loving nations.
Attack us and we will kill you by all means neccesary.
We are a peace loving nation? Have you studied any history at all?
Start with the CIA-led coup in Iran in 1953, where the "peace loving
nations" of the United States caused the overthrow of a democratically elected, more or less secular, more or less friendly to the West leader of
Iran and replaced him with the Shah, which act has led directly
to the situation we are in with Iran today, and contributed heavily to the
growth of militant fundamentalism.
Follow that by investigation of the Bannana Republics of South America, and the actions of the US Marines in support of US agri-business.
by investigation of the many dirty little wars the US fomented again in South America during the '80s when popular uprisings
against the US-supported regimes of the area were common.
by investigation of the School Of the Americas... one of the leading schools on torture techniques, run by the US.
by investigation of the number of US military bases around the world, including in places where the majority of the
population does not want any US military presence.
by examination of the percentage of US wealth that is dumped into military spending - the worst thing that can be
done with money, from an economic/growth point of view, compared to the same expenditures by other industrialized countries.
The US is a peace loving nation? Yeah, that is the story the US tells. If it wasn't so freaking tragic it would be a laugh.
