I only care about the truth, first and foremost, after that, we address the problem... Not the US Government problem, or Iranian problem... But the INDIVIDUALs who commit such acts problem. I truly hope this doesn't turn into a 'Ohhhh America is sooo bad, they need to be taken care of!' and then BOOOM! I truly hope that if and when this information is released. If it does have a grain of truth to it. That other countries recognize the individuals and don't attempt to hold the entirety of the US population accountable. It would be a pretty ignorant move to harm US civilians over the acts of a few 100 or even 1000 people....

Those were not my words in your post. You have twisted them to fit an agenda. Or to fit an agenda you think I have.
I want hard evidence before I formulate an opinion regardless of the source.

Thirty years ago on April 25, 1980, the US staged a military aggression against Iran's soil with a number of choppers and planes. The US administration, whose different plots to defeat the sacred Islamic system had failed, launched this military aggression with the goal of releasing the spies that had been detained throughout the seizure of US spy den in Tehran.
In response to aggression against an American embassy in which a number of American citizens were kidnapped and held hostage. Most or all of them had diplomatic immunity, so even if they were "spies," Iran had no right to hold them. Invading an embassy and holding the mission hostage is a violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, which Iran ratified in 1965. Invading that aggressor to rescue the hostages is a legitimate act to secure the safety of the hostages. Try again.edit on 3-11-2011 by FurvusRexCaeli because: too much quoted
Yep, Eagle Claw was a failure, but it sure wasn't due to the awesomeness of the Iranian Army. It was due to nature (sandstorm) and BS infighting amongst the US military with everyone wanting their fingers in the pie.
due to nature (sandstorm)
I mean you know a terrorist isnt an actual thing right? its a point of view... a terrorist to one person is a freedom fighter to another, thats how in ireland the IRA had support for years even though westerm media made out they were terrorists, or like i dont know.. Sadams Crew who were not only our allies but freedom fighters for what we wanted!! So any act of us helping along attacks on what we see is the bad guys in IRAN to them is an act of terrorism on there regime....
That's a fair statement. I'm not discrediting it. But the real world situation is a bit more complex. The US has all but declared war on Iran (especially with their new anti-diplomacy bill), and Iran has made this claim as a detterant. If they simply released all the documents, the US would probably accuse them of lying and use it as more justification for war.
