Exactly.  That's a  scary thought  if submitter is a neocon-moron who'se actively hoping for a US-Iran war.


Republicans need enemies.  Without enemies, they turn on each other.

neversubmit: sammyk: Yes subby easing of decades long tensions between Iran and the US is scary.

It is to the people of Iran.

Hurled shoes and eggs greet Iran's returning president

Protesters targeted the motorcade of Hassan Rouhani with shoes and eggs on Saturday as the Iranian president arrived home to a mixed reception from a landmark visit to the United Nations which concluded with a phone call with Barack Obama.

They still remember how they were treated by the US


Those protesters are a minor fraction of the Iranian people.  They're the Tea Derpers of Iran, the hardcore religious extremists who still hate America with the force of ten thousand suns.

Most Iranians, on the other hand, aren't like that.

In September of 2001, after the 9/11 attacks, there were spontaneous candle-light vigils held by thousands of Iranians in Tehran, for the victims of the AQ terrorists, and they held against the explicit wishes of the government.

Love the false equivalencies in this thread.  "Sometimes bad things happen in the US, therefore we're just as bad as Iran."

It's amazing the logical contortions people will put themselves through so they can rationalize hating the nation which has given them everything.

neversubmit: If the Saudis cared about the people of Syria they would not have sent in "fighters" to free them to death.


The Saudis have their own problems oppressing and killing their OWN people.  Their concern for Iranians (non-Arabs and Shia vs the Saudi Sunnis) is laughable.

Really, this brings two theocracies together.  Both Israel and Saudi Arabia are pretty much the only Debbie Downers on this.  Canada too, but I imagine nobody gives  a shiat anymore what crap comes out of their current administration.

Harper's government is full-on American Neo-cons without the tans.

EWreckedSean: EWreckedSean: Lord_Baull: Whatever happened to that fiscally conservative "Star Wars" project?

It involved into most of the theater wide anti-ballistic missile systems we have today?

evolved..


Lolwut?

Today's theater-wide missile defenses have almost nothing in common with SDI/Star Wars. Some of the ERINT tech made it in to the Patriot defense system, but that's like saying you spent a hundred billion on the space program and managed to develop Tang out of it.

Intercepting an ICBM is completely different from intercepting a tactical missile. All the money dumped in to directed energy weapons, for example, is not part of any missile defense that works - those x-ray lasers and other sci fi beam weapons never have come close to working.

JesusJuice: mainstreet62: JesusJuice: sammyk: Yes subby easing of decades long tensions between Iran and the US is scary.

It is. Islamic extremism is something to be contained and strangled, not interacted with.

And you say that with a straight face while completely ignoring the fact that it happens here in the United States, too, from the Bible thumping idiots that oppose ACA, but are perfectly fine with a government sanctioned toll crossing in every woman's uterus.

Which is totally the same as beheading people for blasphemy.


Civilized people shoot abortion doctors and drop hellfire missiles on anybody that might not like foreign soldiers busting down their doors.

But beheading? That's barbaric.

Ambitwistor: EWreckedSean: Why is this scary? Western culture will have far more effects on easing troubles with Iran than sanctions or bombs ever will.

Iran had one of the most westernized cultures in the region before the Islamic Revolution.  It didn't ease the subsequent troubles ... of course, a lot of that westernization came from the Shah who was considered a U.S. puppet ...


Considered? We helped overthrow the previous government because they didn't want to let British and American oil companies run roughshod over their countries, and installed the Shah who let us do whatever we wanted as long as we paid him off.

They aren't working on any bombs.

See, they are smiling and waving back.


You're not even trying anymore.  So, onto the list you go.

That's largely because the Shah was a brutal dictator reinstalled by the CIA in a coup against their democratically elected leader...

You know, I agree that conservatives and right-wingers are backwards douchebags.  Is anyone else sick and farking tired about hearing about how oppressed women's uterus are though?  With all the crap going on in the country, this is really on the radar?


Thankfully, most of us can multi-task when it comes to GOP stupidity.

Because isolating extremists and persecuting them always ends well.

Hey, remind me how they finally ended the IRA attacks in northern Ireland? I recall they tried the contain/strangle thing for decades, how'd that go?
