    My Iranian buddy says the Iranian people love trump and want him to overthrow that government. And I believe the Iranian people are civilized and smart enough to adopt democracy. But is that our business? You can’t give people freedom they have to earn it. They have to take it.

    If we get involved we better have a plan and people we already work with on the inside.

    Anyways, if republicans get us into another war just remember democrats mind our own business.

    I'm sure they love the sanctions, and is your buddy a member of MEK which was a terrorist group till taken off in about 2013. Its none of our business, that I agree on.

    No these are just people sick of the Iranian government. Sort of like Cuban Americans didn’t like Fidel Castro

    Actually these are the people who trashed our American Embassy in 1979 and held our American prisoners.

    Do you blame them? What were we doing?

    So you’re saying you like the current Iranian leadership? I’m not arguing. Look what happened when we freed Iraqis. We were better off with saddam in charge
