    We have been meddling there so long that I doubt they will ever trust a western power no matter how honest or well intentioned. Real democracy cannot be delivered at gun point and killing Iranians only seems to strengthen their resolve to remain insular and uncooperative under any circumstances because their grudges are measured in centuries.

    Yes, the USA has been messing with Iran for my entire lifetime.

    And before that for my father's entire lifetime the Brits messed with it.

    Essantially that's the same people, folks.

    So what you idiots are saying is that if the US made mistakes with Iran over the decades during the Cold War chess match with the USSR over land and oil in the middle east, that justifies a chimp running Iran getting nukes so that he can wipe the Jews off the face of the Earth.

    FYI....there are Iranians that like us, so we must not be that bad. Of course, you idiots like the chimp.

    Believe it or not..they've got a good case to own them. Self preservation.

    Once you got nukes..generally an invasion is ruled out.
