With all this talk about attacking Iran and how they are our enemy, 911 connection, etc.

Does this make any sense? Could we be purposefully opening ourselves to an attack?

Or is it all kosher like the article suggestion to "aid" Iranian students, I can see maybe how getting a bunch of Iranian teens here could help the future of the US (indoctrination of youth to be U.S friendly)

I some How doUbt 2 years in the us could change a life time of anti-u.s. Sentiment though. It could go either way ie "wow their not bad" to "holy crap it's worse than we thought"

good, iran is not our enemy, islam is, iran was not founded on islamic beliefs, look at iran back in the 70s and 80s, it was one of the most powerful countries in the world, then islam came in and infested, what was once the powerful and proud land of persia, with their beliefs, law, and hatred. now women dont have rights, and they live in fear every day. iran really does need the worlds help, they clearly do not want islamic laws in place there, they want it to be like how it used to be decades ago, a land that was peaceful and proud of its herritage. look online at the comments about when anonymous was pondering with the idea of causing a #storm over there. people from iran were bagging them to help out. instead, the world allows these people to suffer as Islam perges the land and spreads its vial plague.

No American foreign policy in Iran is the enemy. If you don't remember the US helped overthrow their elected government and installed a dictator. What if a country did that to your country? wouldn't you be pissed? Iran has been pretty nice considering all the crap that the west has thrown at it over the years.

Let's bring the young adults here and then bomb their families at home. Sounds like a recipe for disaster and a setup to me.

Well Iran is not exactly well liked by its neighbors, so dont just think its the west and the US that has issues with Iran.

I have no clue why they have done this. It is known that Iran sends students to spy and steal Western technology. I don't see why the US would be facilitating that.

This is just to provide the CIA with people to turn into agents. They can be trained and sent back home to stir up revolution.

with irans security at the nuclear powerplant its obvious why they want to send some here to learn some it skills

and then maybe it will be a little harder to hack them.

the iranian people are not our enemies er well some of them but their government is.

and the facts are iran funding hamas and hezbollah and their proxy wars in iraq and against isreal and the funding of islamic terrorism.,

hence the term state spnonsor of terrorismwith the iranian goal of reestablising the persian empire.

iraq and afghansitan would have not taken so long with out help and where do you people think that help came from?

iran,pakistan,saudi arabia opec oil and the drug and human smuggling.

they are just as bad as evil corporations and i am not talking about western corporations

people seem to forget mulitnation companies exist every where in the world.

The source link seems to be broken... I offer these in it's place

www.google.com...

www.payvand.com...

www.sacbee.com...

Best I could come up with......

On topic.

I saw this and the first thing I thought of was how contrary this is to the media messages we've been receiving about our relationship with the country.

"Blow-back" seems a reasonable concern.

You got it. This is how they do it without getting their hands dirty.

They probably want Iranian students to come to the US so US agents can indoctrinate or outright brainwash them with Western ideals so they could go back to Iran with a Western mindset and youth angst. It's not exactly hard to manipulate a weak mind if you're not from a well-off background and the US government dangles a large sum of money in front of you. The CIA does it all the time with underpriviledged people from all over the globe.

So the CIA is responsible for US student visas now? wow, I did not realize there was this vast plot of university admissions departments working secretly with the CIA to get foreign students here for brainwashing.

Iranian youth already have a very western mindset, they certainly not like the typical Arab youth. The Iranians applying to go to college outside of Iran, desperately want out of Iran for a while. They are not doing it because they cant find an education in Iran?
