With all due respect, I've done my homework. I'm not going to do yours as well. A plethora of material exists on the topic ,including but not limited to, countless speeches and interviews with regime figures expressing, on video and in their own words, what I have stated above. I'm not a "gut feeling" kinda guy. I'm not really endorsing all of the U.S.'s actions in regard to Iran nor am I endorsing a strike at the moment but I do believe the things I've stated about the regime are factual and well documented. So, you disagree with me? Cool, good for you for thinking for yourself and coming to your own conclusions. Thanks for the reply

As to who's the aggressor, it's both. We're upset because Iran, like many other ME countries, is selling oil for non-American currency. Unlike the other countries, Iran has managed to remain doggedly resistant to other techniques such as the inside insurrection fomentation the US used in those other countries. So our only reasonable response is to attack, preferably via an ally proxy at first.
Iran is, however, developing nuclear capability; there really is no substantial argument against that. However they plan to use said capability is another story. Are they planning to use it as a deterrent to an attack from us, to destroy Israel to bring the last Imam back out of the well, or to start a global conquest? I don't know the answer to that, nor does anyone outside of Iranian military intelligence circles.
The stage is set; the major pieces are in play; the pawns are moving in for support. Syria is about to fall, and when it does Iran loses a huge strategic partner. Our government knows exactly what they are doing; Iran knows what is coming, and while Russia/China are sitting on the sidelines ready and able to engage, they have not made their intentions clear; Iran is, without their help, looking at a serious threat to their very existence.
Check. Pawn to Queens Rook 6. Silence.
ETA: Pay no attention to the above post. I was just informed by the great CNN that we Americans should be busily debating gun control or Chik-Fil-A's CEO's stance on gay marriage instead of watching the Middle East. My bad.

I think you should be able to understand the analogy of the home:
Iran is not developing a nuclear weapon. That is propaganda.
US will not get near Iran for military actions even for decades. it still sticks to economical and political attacks.
their Imam is not in well ! it is a superstition, I wonder how it reached to you !
Syria will not fall easily, unless it takes some of it's enemies with itself.(for example Israel !)
