Iranians are a peaceful rational nation,we do not wish to see war and suffering taking place anywhere around the world.
This is the distinction people need to make.. I agree the Iranian people are peaceful and do not want war.. The Iranian government on the other hand
has a track record that does not support the goal of the Iranian people. Just as the argument can be made in the reverse for the US people and the US
A quick search of Iran's record will prove that we have been peaceful for centuries...
Define "Iran's record"? Are we looking at a timeline starting with the Iranian coup in the late 70's to present? Or are we looking back further?
Depending on which record you are referring to, you are right while at the same time wrong.
We have not invaded,occupied or intervened any foreign country because there is no reason for any sane country to do such a thing...
So Iran has not intervened in Israel by supporting Hamas / Hezzbullah?
Iran has not intervened in Syria?
Iran has not intervened in Saudi Affairs?
Iran has not intervened in Quatar / UAE / Bahrain / etc affairs?
Iran has not interfered in Iraq during the 2003 invasion?
Iran has not interfered in Afghanistan ?
While I get the argument you are trying to make against the US... Doing so while trying to claim Iran is innocent just undermines your entire
But can you honestly say the same about the US/UK/Israel?...Well you might say they are the masters of the world and they do as they please,who is
Iran or anybody else to tell them how to act or do their stinking business around the world!..
So what's the real issue then? western hegemony or the fact western countries are more able to project influence and power and Iran is just
I would wager that if the west withdrew from the Middle East in order to bring "stability", that "stability" would be shattered when certain Arab
countries try to "wipe Israel off the map".
Maybe if some Arab countries spent less time denouncing the great Satan and more time and energy spent on education and technology they could move
beyond the 9th century and join the rest of the world in the 21st century?
You want the US out of the ME... No Problem... I have no desire to live under Islamic rule.. So when the zealots stop preaching that the world will be
better when its united under Islam, I will stop supporting an interventionist policy when the national security of the free world is threatened by
And I'll say that the times for that kind of nonsense bullying is over,people all around the world are informed and they mostly know about the real
intentions of the western powers in the worlds affairs...If you can not talk with respect and with logic,then I am afraid you are going to loose this
popularity contest and have to pay the severe consequences....After all the US needs Iran more than Iran need them.
Out of curiosity do you see just how hypocritical your statement is when Iran has constantly threatened Israel with destruction?
here is some homework -
Lets compare the number of times Iran threatens Israel with the number of time Israel threatens Iran.
The US needs Iran as much as we need the Federated States of Micronesia.. Iran needs to stop claiming its Persian contribution to the world as its
own. Persia and Iran are completely separate entities in this area, and that is confirmed by history.
If we need Iran more than they need us, then there would have been no reason for sanctions to be imposed on Iran now would there?
I think you and others often time confuse the greatness of Persia with the lackluster performance of Iran. By trying to claim Persian influence and
contributions as its own, Iran does nothing but disrespects the Persian culture and influence on the world.
I long for the day when the Iranian people get a government that represents their will instead of that of the Top Turbans coupled with a perverted
spin on a religion which is used to suppress the people.
Just my 2 cents... Ironically enough I can say this and criticize the US government without fear of retribution or execution where as if I were in
Iran, I would be publicly executed for simply speaking the truth and voicing an opinion that runs counter to the Iranian government and the
That might be why in Iran's 35+ years of existence they have never invaded another country. They are to busy killing their own people in order to
remain in power. The only ting missing from the Iranian airports is a big metal sign that reads "Arbeit macht frei ".
