    Big surprise, how can anyone not know these crazy bastards are hell-bent on creating a nuclear weapon and using it. They don't care about their own people, and they sure as hell don't care about anyone else.

    Are either of you aware of the fact that Iran has very few friends? The Arabs hate them (Iranians are caucasian.) The US hates them. Israel hates them. Over half of Iran's population hates their government. Iran is sitting on a HUGE oil well.

    If there's a war, Iran won't be the ones starting it. That would be suicide.

    The reason the sanctions aren't hurting much is because Iranian oil is being sold to europe.

    That report is out there because obama plans on making nice with the Eye-ranians just before the election.

    Of course, America gets screwed, but Obama looks like a foreign policy genius just prior to the vote.

    The fact is, the sanctions on Iran are killing them...

    Just ask Asad.

    The OP's premise is false.

    Iran's currency has crashed, because of the sanctions.

    Pardon?
    You're saying that Obama has put out, or influenced a report claiming that the sanctions policy is failing - and this will look good for him?
    Please explain it again?
