4 - Its just the excuse "they" need to label Iran as the enemy
Think clearly, its a HUGE event. Never in history such a thing had happened...
No.. it's not. Neither country can afford a war with the U.S. which is precisely the reason Iran hasn't struck Israel.. All bark not bite.
Perfect mark? N. Korea and Iran have made it publicly clear the west is its enemy.. pretty sure we have been marked for quite some time now.
I don't know anyone in Iran, however, any type of economic sanction will constrict an economy which is why they use them today. Iran's government is
so hell bent on having nuclear tech that they are willing to up the cost of living regardless of the consequence it has on its people. Just because
you have 1 or 2 or a handful of people you talk to in Iran doesn't make you a subject matter expert.
Who is "they"? Are you speaking of the U.S. or Iran? Both countries only care about destruction.
ETA: Re-read your article.. it HAS happened before.
The Non Aligned Movement was born in 1961 at the height of the Cold War and was intended to be bloc of nations that sided neither with NATO nor
the Warsaw Pact. It currently has 120 members.
NAM Summit has been going on since 1961 according to this article.
