Yes, even their President is Iranian by birth or blood.
That makes the situation even more explosive.

IMHO, all Iran wants is a big piece of Iraq as a thank you gift from the US for the services Iran provided during and after the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq. The nuclear program, Hezbollah support, even the media verbal war are mere tools to get the attention of Arabs and make them more open to shia propaganda and more vulnerable to conversion ( to the shia misinterpretation of Islam. What Iranians don't understand is they shouldn't be pushing so hard so as not to upset Israel because this could mean a war/limited strike and then a delay to their dream of shiatization of the region.

Do you really believe that the Iranians dream is "Shiatization" of the ME?

Didn't they try to export of the Islamic Revolution to Muslim, especially Arab, countries?

Hey Talhoube, do you think it will be a good idea for Israel to attack Iran (it's going to happen anyway)? Don't you think that his will probably weaken everyone?

Attack Iran's nuclear facilities like they attacked Iraq's? Good idea. I'd love to see how Iran will respond fiercely with empty verbal threats . But waging a war against Iran with all the brutalities of a war is terrible. You know I hate Iran for its policies in the region and its shiite ideology and would prefer to see Iran and Israel destroy each other, but war is not like this and you know the poor people will pay the high price. Still, I don't see a war coming.

The former President, Katsav, was born in Iran and lived in Tehran.

The current President, Peres (Perski) was born in Poland.

Poland should expect some hard times soon

I agree. Air strikes are possible, even probable, for taking out nuclear targets - although I don't see this happening before November. I wouldn't put it past Bush to wait for the election to be over and the, despite his lame duck status, make foreign policy decisions on this scale. But there isn't going to be a war. Israel doesn't have enough military to invade Iran, and with the US so thinly stretched in Iraq and Afghanistan, they don't have the military either, not without massive (and highly unpopular in an election year) reserve call-ups.

Thank you for your sincerity.

You know, I would love to see Sunnites and Shiites destroying each other in their endless efforts to prove that their version of Islam is the right one.

Would make the role of the USA much easier.

Hell, we could even get out from the ME all together and develop alternate sources of energy once and for all.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I don't believe that Shiites have hijacked and flown civilian aircraft into any American facilities anywhere nor have they attacked our embassies no have they attacked any of our military that was not involved in combat operations.

Aside from that, as far as I'm politically concerned they're just like the Sunnites or the Catholics or the Hindus or the Republicans.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
