Or believing the propaganda. And if you are tuned in to both sides, the US is already supposedly operating inside Iran. Ever heard of MEK?

I don't think so. On the contrary, you tried hard to portray the U.S. can do no wrong. I love this country as much as you do. Thats why I judge its policies subjectively. No one should throw stone when living in a glass house. We all live in a glass house.

When they get a U.N. resolution authorizing them to intervene we'll talk.

I never said you didn't love your country - I'm certain that you do. And I never said that the U.S. can do no wrong. But I believe that our nation has a right to press our interests, especially when authorized by the United Nations, as we were in Iraq and are with regard to Iran and its nuclear program.

It is rather unnecessary. All you need is to understand the tribal rivalries in the last 1,500 years between the 2 countries.

Our involvement is futile at best.

That, and the 16 before it that progressively authorized sanctions and actions against Iraq for its violation of each subsequent resolution and the cease-fire that it signed in 1991 creating a truce with the United States after the first Gulf War.

Our interest of what?

Huh? Sorry Mr Saddam. You are in our way to getting your oil?

What is exactly the big deal with Iran's nuclear program? NK has it, Pakistan has it, India has it, China has it. Israel has it
