Well your comments about Iran's history have some merit. It is great that you acknowledge that we overthrew the duly elected government of Iran back in the pre-Shah days thus putting that despot in power for years. I trained at Ft Belvoir with Iranian officers from that regime. But your apparent acceptance of the " Iranian Nuclear Weapons" reminds me of the WMD of Iraq. Both Israeli and US intelligence sources have stated that Iran IS NOT working on a nuclear weapon. Some sources within the power structure of Israel were actively pointing out that the Netanyahu speech was not at all accurate to say the least. It is also good that you see that the taking of the American hostages was not an act of random anger at the USA but, in fact, was largely based upon the anger felt by some Iranians at our messing with their established democratric government. This is a great example of "blowback". Our media rarely acknowledges this history nor looks for the reasons for the hostage taking. The drone attacks across countries like Pakistan, Yemen, and so forth can only cause terror in the population of the targeted countries as these drones hover for hours on end fairly often loosing their weapons on "suspected" terrorists" which all to often turn out to be innocents. Even if they killed only "enemy" they are counterproductive in that many people rightly feel that it just is not a fair way to kill people. Underlying these attacks is the fact that Saudi Arabia provides much of the intelligence for the attacks and unfortunately their view of the "enemy" is distorted by a fear that any group working for change is a threat to their own despotic regime. The results of our policies in the entire area is becoming exceedingly clear. People of any persuasion, do not like to be bombed, to have their homes entered in the dead of night, to have a foreign government making decisions from afar frequently with no idea of the consequences for their country.
Thank you for at least seeing this issue in some light other than that common to so many. "Bomb them all!" (as yelled at us on 72nd and Dodge during our peace vigil)
