Better yet. Don't send our troops around the world to nation build. Bring the troops home to protect our borders like the Constitution says.

That's hilarious- you blame the US for Iran attempting to sink two oil tankers and shooting down one of our drones?


Liberals do indeed hate America and love radical Islam. Iran is the chief sponsor of terror in the world- no wonder liberals love them.


You probably blame the US for Pearl Harbor and 9/11.

What Treaty with Iran are you talking about?

Surely you don't think, because the NYT told you so, that backroom appeasement "deal" between Kerry and the Iranian dictators amounted to anything more than that?


That was about creating an Obama "legacy". And those mullahs laughed all the way to the bank at the hapless community agitator's stupidity.

Indeed. They are single issue. i.e. Trump hatred. And that means they are fodder for anything the NYT tells them because everything else is subservient to that.



It leads to the most idiotic of propositions.

I know a few who fled the regime and they are as western as we are. Let's hope that the Mullahs are overthrown by their own people and that a conflict does not erupt in which innocent civilians, who don't even like their leaders, are killed.


Most of these oppressive regimes tend to fall under their own weight- its just a matter of time.
Threatening an attack on their nation would only strengthen the Mullahs position of power within Iran society. People don't look for governmental change while on the eve of war. Also the Mullahs in Iran have been portraying America as the boogeyman for the last 40 years. If we attack their country, it would mean that they have been right all along.

As do many Americans! Just not enough...

Some pretty weird radical rationale expressed here if you ask me...

As long as you bring up Pearl Harbor and 9/11, can you connect the dots between Iran and any such attack on U.S. soil? Because as noted before, when I review the history of our involvement vs Iran's, it always seems we're in their sand box. Not much them in ours.

I'm sure if fly my drone around your house, you'll be plenty accommodating about that too. Right?

What Trump is doing there now is like a kid playing with fire in your front yard. What do we generally tell kids about playing with fire? And why?

Right. If we're going to devote these kinds of resources toward "nation building," maybe we should devote our resources closer to home and build Mexico so Mexicans can make more money there rather than come to America where Americans are more than glad to pay them to work here?
