It's not always a "war of some kind".
I don't understand what makes people take serious subjects so lightly. It's like if we don't go to war and kill each-other by the thousands then it
doesn't matter or isn't important.
These things are very important because the US is messing with countries growth and development. If the US is going to have the "courage" to impose
unilateral (and somewhat illegal) sanctions to a country and it's allies (in trade), then it should be for a damn good reason.
People often fail to see the larger picture and to see beyond the obvious. The matter of fact is that these types of policy usually end up with
countries being poor and in bad condition. When a population lives poorly, it gets angry, and if the powers that represent them can control that
anger, that's when serious stuff happens.
I love to see how people praise the US decisions against Iran or how they dismiss this kind of news as "unimportant", when the lack of knowledge
disables them to see what's really happening.
Because of this crap, what is considered a "moderated" leader like Ahmadinejad, that could be pro-west and even an economic ally, is actually losing
strength. And not only that, but he is losing power to the conservative and extremist side of Iran. He took a severe blow in the last elections in
You see, because of economic growth Iran has realized they need to have some of the west mentality in terms of trade and foreign policy. They
understand the need to have friends, negotiations and the importance of not having any conflict with peripheral markets.
That's why Iran has such a deep oil market, that's why they are developing nuclear power and that's why they are able to achieve things like a
This crap being made by the US is making the iranians angry and anti-US/west, and anger tries to take shelter in people who carry on that anger into
foreign policies, like what happened with Adolf Hitler.
So instead of having a leader that could be worked around/with for a greater good of the region and the world, he is being put into a corner and
building the basis for the iranian people demanding aggressive action that could have catastrophic consequences.
This isn't a joke.
