The US assasinates people on weekly basis using drones in countries where we have violated their soveriegnty.

It's so routine ...it's not even news anymore.


Israel assasinates Iranian nuclear scientists in Iran.

So what's your point?

So you believe the people who do these things?

Amnesty International shines a spotlight on Iranian atrocities - timesherald.com

"So a year ago this month, they held an election and blatantly falsified the results. Iranians protested and were brutally suppressed. One victim became known worldwide: Neda Agha-Soltan.

At a demonstration on June 20, 2009, she was shot in the chest. Soon after, demonstrators pulled a man from his motorcycle, disarmed him, and identified him as a member of the Basij, a militia that specializes in crushing anti-government dissent. He reportedly shouted: “I didn’t want to kill her!”"

I can provide you with many more examples.

Again it is sad you believe these folks over our government. I suspect you are a Paul supporter. It is the views of his followers, that really reflect poorly on the guy, and frankly make him look nuttier than his stated positions.

I'm not excusing Iranian atrocities. I am just calling America's own short comings to the light.

I never suggested you were excusing their atrocities. I was simply highlighting the fact that you trust a government that commits such atrocities more than our government. It is sad and a little nutty.,and again, it highlights how Paul is a little off when he animates such followers.

They wouldn't assassinate people linked to forces that could wipe them off the map...they are jerks with big mouths, but they aren't stupid.

There is simple no moral equivalence between the US and Iran.
I love these high horse posts. Reviewing American history clearly shows the opposite of what you claim. The hawks are looking for a big war since they can't get the economy going and they are too stubborn to slowly change the system back to the way it used to be.

Oh, and Saudi Arabia is far from being a dream land. We use each other, us for oil, them for money.

Hey hokie if it was a ploy to go to war the "plot" wouldn't have been stopped they would have blown the dam embassy up. Stop reading your conspiracy lunacy. Or are you saying obama is so incompetent he set up a false flag and then accidently stopped it before he could get the war he wanted to begin with?? LOL

The U.S. government needs to go over their script again. Is Iran the mortal enemy of Israel or Saudi Arabia?

Of course you would side with Iran. Conservatives have been actively rooting against the USA since Obama's inauguration.

Sick and disgusting doesn't even begin to describe conservatives these days.

Ok, so I am confused. Do you believe the Taliban and Hussain were democratically elected. Or the US and Iran are morally the same? Or both perhaps, since you claim what I wrote was 180 degrees wrong.

Also, please point out to us who is calling for war?
