At this point, I am honestly wondering what Iran needs to do in reaching out and how they can expect to get out of things, either way. I'm honestly not kidding. Prior to Libya, I would have believed that a nation we say we have a serious problem with could solve the problem and end the problem.
However, in Libya and now in Syria, if clear options are offered at all, they don't last long when the willingness to cooperate is shown. Then it's just flat out Regime change and how best to go about it.....their deaths have already been decreed and decided within Western Governments.
You know, as recently as the confrontation with the Taliban and before U.S. forces entered Afghanistan, I still believed a nation could get themselves out of being destroyed...if they only did what was being asked.
So much has happened in the last several years though, ( and it's BOTH Presidents for those who can't think past that these days ) I'm just not sure anything Iran does will change the ultimate outcome of what seems to have been decided. The how and precisely when is all a big question ....but end result seems as clearly decided as Iraq, Libya and Syria. I hope I'm wrong on that..because Iran won't just roll over and say 'screw it'. We're in for a REAL fight this time.
Why must other countries do what the US wants? Why must Iran listen to the US? Why doesn't the US have to abide by international law and by the UN? You seem to think that the US is the master of the world. What makes this so? You speak as an arrogant American (I am guessing your nationality). Why is it ok for the US to kill people all over the world on an industrial scale? Why doesn't the US follow its own laws, including the US Constitution?
I'm not defending the Assad or Khadafy regimes by any stretch. But compare their body count of deaths and torture to those of the US; I assure you the US will win hands down as the bloodthirstiest nation of the 21st century. The only other difference being that these other countries do it to their own people, whereas the US goes abroad to kill most of its victims.
