Yeah we are not talking about the US we are talking about Iran, so how about supplying some evidence of claims that Iranians are suicide
bombers that are sponsored by their government or that Iranian government are financing terrorism.
I never stated that iranians were suicide bombers.
However, it's a very well known fact
that Iran supports those groups - like Hezbollah - with money, military training and equipment.
Also Hezbollah receives financial and political assistance, as well as weapons and training, from the Islamic Republic of Iran. The US estimates
that Iran was giving Hezbollah about $60–$100 million per year in financial assistance but that assistance declined as other funding was secured,
primarily from South America. Some estimates of Iran's aid are as high as $200-million annually.
Iran openly supports Hezbollah, it's not a secret.
So some countries view Hezbollah as a terrorist organization yet they are now part of a elected government.
They are part of the parliament, not the actual government. They occupy 12 - out of 128 - seats there, and they occupy another 2 seats in the Cabinet
That is very far from being a part of the government. They are represented like many other parties are represented all around the world in
Other countries view the gov. of Israel or Mossad as a terrorist organization
I view those "other countries" as barbaric and inhumane when it comes to human rights. I will accept judgement and criticism of Israel from nations
who can actually do better
, and not from countries who hang and execute homosexuals, just to name an example.
Iran sends funds to Hezbollah.
In your previous reply to my post, you asked:
so how about supplying some evidence of claims (...) that Iranian government are financing terrorism.
People can paint Hezbollah with all the pretty colors they want. The matter of fact is that Hezbollah was one of the first movements to use suicide
bombers, and I won't even give you a source for that, do your own research for once.
Basically how is this any different to the US funding Israel or any other country?
If you can't understand what's the real difference, then it's also not worth debating it...
Are the people of Iraq not terrorized by having a foreign military force in their country dropping bombs from planes, entering family homes to
make sure no bad guys live there while having their M16 pointed at the mother and children on their knees in their front yard.
I will accept that kind of judgment from an Iraqi, not from you.
What is Terrorism?
What Saddam Hussein did to his people for decades.
You mean the chemical weapons the US supplied to Iraq in the 80s.
In violation of the Geneva Protocol of 1925, the Iraqi Army initiated two failed (1970–1974, 1974–1978) and one successful
(1978–1991) offensive chemical weapons (CW) programs. President Saddam Hussein pursued the most extensive chemical program during the
Iran-Iraq War (1980–1988), when he waged chemical warfare against his foe. He also used chemicals in 1988 in the Al-Anfal Campaign against his
civilian Kurdish population and during a popular uprising in the south in 1991.
One good reason for Iran to do what you claim they have been doing since 2003 is because of what happened to Iraq.
The best possible reason for Iran not doing
what Iraq did, was the fact that the Iranian government, voluntarily
the NPT and the IAEA agreements, which state very clearly that the state in question will not, by any means, produce, purchase or even develop nuclear
Like I have stated so many times in this forums, if Iran wants to have a nuke, then they should LEAVE the NPT and the IAEA and face the
consequences, like the big boys they claim to be.
