Iran isn't exactly innocent of bombings and invasions, they just operate on a smaller scale. I think this is why people don't want them to get nuclear weapons. If your country has Iranian sleeper cells residing within it's borders, you should be worried.

(snip)Iran has sleeper cells throughout the United States and the West that will unleash suicide bombings should Iranian nuclear facilities be attacked…..

(snip)Director of National Intelligence James Clapper recently told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence about his concerns of Iran’s willingness to attack the United States in response to any confrontation.

…the first suicide attack occurred against a Western target when a bomber drove a vehicle packed with explosives into the lobby of the American embassy in Beirut. Apart from himself, he killed 63 people: 32 Lebanese, 17 Americans, and 14 visitors. Iran denied all involvement in the attack, but its protégé, Hezbollah, soon claimed responsibility, and it was subsequently established that the killings had been approved and financed by senior Iranian officials. The Iranian role in many subsequent suicide bombings has been crucial, given the existence of a clerical elite that inherited a deeply-embedded Shi'i cult of martyrdom, whose traditions of flagellation, public weeping, passion plays, martyrdom sermons, and hagiographies of martyrs were pushed into overdrive after the revolution of 1979.

An Islamic Paradox

By 2008, 1,121 suicide bombers had carried out attacks in Iraq, killing on a massive scale. With the exception of Sri Lanka, where the Tamil Tigers used the tactic, suicide bombing has become an almost exclusively Islamic phenomenon.

Lebanon, during its civil war, saw a modern suicide bombing: the Islamic Dawa Party's car bombing of the Iraqi embassy in Beirut, in December 1981. Hezbollah's bombing of the U.S. embassy in April 1983 and attack on United States Marine and French barracks in October 1983 brought suicide bombings international attention. Other parties to the civil war were quick to adopt the tactic, and by 1999 factions such as Hezbollah, the Amal Movement, the Ba'ath Party, and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party had carried out around 50 suicide bombings between them. (The latter of these groups sent the first female suicide bomber in 1986.

no Iran is itself victim of suicide bombings and terrors. most of the suicide bombings in Iraq are against people.
who is behind that !?
MKO, Jundullah, Alghaeda and ......
those radicals are blind and stupid. radicalism and suicide bombings have boosted very much after the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan. lack of education and governments funding of radical groups have made that some individuals get deceived by such terrorists groups and then they kill innocent people for the sake of God !
Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and now Syria and others .......
if USA wants a world without radicalism it should just say a big 'NO' to AIPAC ! change it's policies towards middle east.
be sure that if Hezbullah was so stupid it could not withstand Israel !

Americans are so afraid of "terrorists" that they don't realize that their government is one of, if not the largest terrorist organization ever.

Iran is a central hub, they use proxies, sponsor terrorism, their evil deeds are no less sinister, just more covert.

In the coming confrontation with Iran, they cannot be the aggressor, but must be the victim of unjust aggression, as perceived by the Muslim world and much of the world.

It is how they will justify what will come next...

If you wish to let the people on ATS know the truth then you must tell the entire truth. You just made a huge generalization based on your hatred for America. That won't get you anywhere here and certainly won't garner you any respect.
