    I think it is obvious that the Trump administration is trying to provoke Iran.

    My apologies to Iran. Please to not react to that nut case and his minions.

    I am concerned about the developments regarding Iran. I really hope cooler heads prevail.

    Gog is ordered by Satan and Magog takes order from Gog. You don’t need to apologize as if US is really a grassroots democracy. Kennedy tried to restore power to the people and was killed the day after he spoke about shadow governments.

    Good grief.. Are you caught up in all that futuristic end times fantasy? Our rapture ready crowd here are the dumbest people on the planet. Even Dubya told the president of France he was fighting Gog and Magog.

    I guess you just can't fix stupid.

    Shia believe that Iblis refused to prostrate to the Prophet Adam since prostration is the result of submission and surrender to God but Iblis was so proud of himself and self-satisfied that it made him refuse to bow down to Adam.. and it gets weirder and more complicated from there.

    I'm pretty sure you don't have to do anything to provoke Iran, they're always "provoked".

    Anyway, they can't be too salty with all that Obama money...

    Yep except it was Iranian money and offered Iran a way back into being a civilized player.

    Jimmy Carter froze Iranian assets in order to keep the Ayatollah from using them. The money is still frozen.

    The Iran nuclear deal was made in order to keep the Iranians from seeking assistance from the Russians.
    Trump nixed that deal.
    The Iranians are probably the only nation that is sticking to their nuclear agreement.

    My Personal Opinion: Take the Revolutionary Guard out of the Iranian Constitution and normalize relations.

    Of course. Iran is just an innocent victim.

    Lack of innocence is no excuse to wage an unnecessary war against them.
    Certainly, we don't attack many other countries with records of violence & evil,
    eg, Israel, Saudi Arabia, China.
    But in the matter of terrorism, war crimes, & general abuse, we've done far
    more harm to Iran than they've done to us. We should be apologizing.
    Not attacking.

    Those other countries probably don't pose a strategic threat to the West.

    Neither does Iran.
    But China is rapidly becoming a threat with its major investments in
    upgrading its military capability for both defensive & first strike capability.

    When you throw Saudi Arabia into the mix, I know that you are utterly unaware of their history for the past 70 years.

    Iran wants a foothold on the Arabian peninsula and have dogged KSA relentlessly since 1979. KSA has NO ambitions in Iran.
