Just because someone thinks someone else should not develop or acquire the same technology you have, does not give you the right to prevent them from developing that technology.

Their last major conflict was when they were invaded by Iraq. If being invaded is an act of aggression...
Anyways. Israel has all the nukes in the region. Surely that should be checked into, inspected etc. But nah, their crew in Washington only gives Israel money. Seems they don't want anything from them except weapons.
Much easier to start a war and take stuff you want, eh? And then everyone can settle down around the camp fire that is the industrial military complex and buy weapons of each other and decide where next to destroy for their natural resources.

The fact that Isreal hasn't used those nukes, even when another country(s) is threatening to wipe them off the face of the planet speaks alot for their patience.
Would these other countries be so patient?

What more could we want ?
Hmmm, I don't seem to see the nuclear enrichment facilities on the list
I truly hope you are not saying the USA takes all of a regions natural resources. If you are you are not using your mind.
This nation is trillions of dollars in debt - mainly caused by two wars that were waged trying to help a regions people who could't help theirselves.
If we were stealing resources do you really think we would be in the debt we are?
With all due respect, it would appear you know close to nothing about Iran.
FYI; the history you are pointing at is being taken away from the people of Iran. They are not allowed to research their own history. Poems from a few hundred years ago are ILLEGAL in Iran and if you had any clue about how important Persia was for the literary world and languages worldwide you would not understand why they are illegal. I can tell you why though; religious indoctrination. But even that is failing as scores of people inside Iran are facing the difference between the religion they love and the reality it offers.
So...what do you REALLY know about Iran? Or its people?

yet you forget that your government (USA) funds the greatest threat to world peace (Israel).
European Poll: Israel Biggest Threat To World Peace
The European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) (superseded in 2007 by the Fundamental Rights Agency) noted an upswing in antisemitic incidents in France, Germany, Austria, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Belgium, and The Netherlands between July 2003 and December 2004.
In 2009, the U.K. saw 374 manifestations of violence against Jews compared to 112 in 2008, according to the Stephen Roth Institute for the study of Contemporary Antisemitism and Racism. France was a distant second, with 195 violent attacks compared to 50.
The total number of anti-Semitic incidents - as they are defined by the institute - was a record number of 1,129 in 2009, compared to 559 in 2008. The institute recorded 566 incidents of vandalism targeting Jewish property worldwide in 2009, constituting 49 percent of all incidents.
Dina Porat, who heads the institution, told reporters at a press conference on Sunday that Anti-Semitism is directly linked to anti-Zionism.
Yet Israel has nuclear facilities and weapons that they refuse let inspectors see.
Iran as some demonic entity who fuels it's blood lust by eating innocent Israeli children by night.
Now, I'm going to receive a reply, I know it, that Jews are behind antisemitism because there was 1 recorded case of a Jewish girl (and a retard) planting evidence of antisemitism.
There is nothing more morally disgusting then blaming the victim for the crime of the perpetrator.

Iran is NO threat to you or I. Double standards dont you think.
That's because we live in America.
Iran IS a threat, however, to Israel. Iran is the country funding Israels enemies, Hamas and Hezbollah, as well as contributing significant funds to Syria and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
It's leader hopes to see Israel "vanish from the pages of time", and within Iran itself, antisemitic propaganda, as in the recent movie "sabbath hunter" has increased.
