The international community is indeed the UN and indeed they support Iran's civilian nuclear technology.
But support for one thing does not mean doubting that you aren't trying to do another.
For example, the US supports Russian Space exploration. Russia supports US space exploration. This does not mean either support militarization of
space of the other.
past 10 years. So to me, the USA has been building for a conflict with the Iranians for a very long time along with the Israelis.
Except, we did not spend 10 years planning to invade any of those other countries. Which logically thinking would mean we probably don't want to
You spend 10 years planning to invade, say, Russia, or China. Hell even Germany.
You do not spend 10 years planning to invade a country whose primary weapons of defense include 60 year old tanks and 50 year old rifles.
What makes you think the country of Iran is a failing state? Do you actually believe that sanctioning them is going to send them into the dark ages
or something? They don't deal with yous to start with. They booted your asses out in 1979 and I think your country has never got over it.
Headed? They've been in the dark ages for a while now. Not their people. Their government. Which, fyi, is sucking its people into the dark ages.
Now aside from the fact that the Iranian revolution was hijacked by theocracy, and otherwise was going to make Iran a pretty cool place, they did not
boot the US out. There wasn't exactly a US presence in Iran in 1979. The US wasn't exactly that concerned. They did not attempt to invade them because
they also booted the Russians out. If they weren't with the communists, they weren't our concern. US interest in Iran was only to prevent Russian
interest in Iran. If the Iranians weren't going communist, we didn't care enough.
Iran booted the Americans, and the Russians out, because Iran has a long history of being colonized, and would like to enjoy its new found freedom as
long as it can. Once it was understood they were not going to allow Russia in just as much as they were not going to allow the US in, the US stopped
giving a damn, because the US was only interested in preventing Russian expansion.
That's RT.....Russian News.... Furthermore, I actually decided to, you know, research the claim.
Judge George Daniels ordered it.
And he also added this tidbit, which our lovely western and eastern media forgot to mention.
But the report also stated that "we have found no evidence that Iran or Hezbollah was aware of the planning for what later became the 9/11 attack."
In October, 2011, Maas determined that al Qaeda should face $9.3 billion in penalties for the businesses and properties destroyed and damaged in the
Oh yea, and this is after they dismissed the claim Iraq had helped.
This is actually from 2003.....
