    The violent and barbaric regime in Iran is spreading its horrors well beyond its own borders with its substantial support of global terror in its active support of murderous groups, like the Muslim Brotherhood and the Hamas, as well as the Hezbollah and Iraqi insurgents. Imagine WMDs in the hands of these monsters and their suicidal terrorist clients!

    The claims that “Iran hasn’t attacked another country” are also ridiculous since it was quite enough that in its war with Iraq, when it had the upper hand it repeatedly refused UN demands for a truce, extending the war MUCH longer, resulting in utterly superfluous massive loss of life.

    If we choose to ignore all this and allow Iran to develop nukes and drones like these to carry them, and pass them on to other terror groups, it will be at our own peril.

      Hey stupid. The claim that Iran hasn't attacked another country isn't ridiculous. What's ridiculous is your judgment. Iraq attacked Iran in 1980 for no reason and Iran had every right to protect its land and to end the war whenever it wanted. I guess that's what happens when you mess with a country that’s minding its own business. So yes Iran hasn't attacked another country in a long time. Also, don't forget that the US and Israel are just as much evil, if not more, as the barbaric regime of Iran and Hamas. They both contribute to killing of innocent people. In fact the US and Israel have taken more innocent lives away. The only difference is that one uses guerrilla warfare while the other uses satellite, drones, and more advanced technology in their terror.

      FrankWright has got to be the biggest imbecile on this board. He claims that the FACT that Iran hasn't attacked any other country in an least two centuries is rediculous and then goes on to NOT dispute that fact but rather goes on some deviation where he tumbles over words and uses terms asinine terms like "since it was quite enough that" in an attempt to make a false equivalency. Basically he's he's using some surreal netherworld logic and saying that Iran which was attacked first by Iraq AND NOT the other way around (which makes the statement that Iran hasn't attacked any other country for a very long time ABSOLUTELY TRUE) actually attacked Iraq first because Iran in the midst of a war already in progress and indisputably started by Iraq didn't agree to a truce. He's claiming Iran attacked Iraq first because Iran didn't go out of their way to 'shorten' a war started by Iraq. The only thing rediculous here is Dr. FrankWright B.S artist extraordinaire.

    O historiador judeu e israelense Ilan Pappé, professor da Universidade de Exeter, nascido em Haifa, filho de judeus alemães que fugiram dos nazistas nos anos 1930 no livro The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine (A limpeza étnica da Palestina), afirmou que milhares de palestinos foram brutal e selvaticamente mortos por soldados israelenses de todas as origens, postos e idades. Pappé é antissemita? Pode um filho de judeus alemães que fugiram do nazismo ser antissemita? O historiador judeu e israelense Aryeh Yitzhaki, que lecionou na Universidade Bar Ilan, em Tel Aviv, e deu cursos de história para as próprias Forças de Defesa de Israel, atestou que houve dez grandes massacres de civis palestinos por combatentes judeus, com mais de 50 mortos cada. Yitzhaki é antissemita? Pode um judeu que ministrou cursos para as Forças de Defesa de Israel ser antissemita?

    The US govt. takes Iran's technology much more seriously than most of the comment I read. Otherwise, US military took action a loooooooong time ago. so far we heared a lot of threats before Iraq invasion, but no delivery to these threats. What do you think stopping US military pals.

    Atacar o Irã: erro iminente

    A partir de 1945, os EUA já tentaram derrubar pelo menos 50 governos estrangeiros – incluída a última tentativa, em curso, de derrubar o governo eleito do Irã. Essa vergonhosa estatística não é resultado apenas de má política externa; quando o presidente Obama assinou a decisão e converteu em lei, dia 1/7/2010, as sanções contra o Irã, não cometeu erro de desatenção, nem errou por descuido. A política externa dos EUA pode ser comparada à ação de um assassino em série.
    As sanções agem em silêncio, mas são terrivelmente mortíferas. Matam combatentes e não-combatentes indiscriminadamente e covardemente. Basta ver as sanções que os EUA impuseram ao Iraque: o pesquisador Richard Garfield estima que "pelo menos 100 mil ou, em avaliação mais rigorosa, mais de 220 mil recém-nascidos e bebês morreram, no Iraque, entre agosto de 1991 e março de 1998, por causas motivadas ou diretamente relacionadas às sanções econômicas".
