We are Iran’s enemy

We
are being misled by all the hyperbole about Iran. Despite all its
bluster about Israel, Iran does not have a history of being militarily
aggressive. The last time it attacked another country was in 1856, when
it briefly occupied part of Afghanistan. But since the end of World War
I, our country has militarily intervened 77 times in foreign countries,
resulting directly or indirectly in the death of more than 6 million
people

We are an empire with more than 700 military installations in 130
countries. Iran has none. The U.S. has 10,000 nuclear warheads, half of
them deployed throughout the world. Iran has none. We have violated the
nuclear non-proliferation treaty for 40 years. Iran has kept its word.
We are currently at war with two countries we invaded, Iraq and
Afghanistan, and are killing people with drones in Pakistan and Yemen.
Iran has no troops outside its borders and has violated no country’s
airspace.
We are
continually warned by Congress and the Obama administration that Iran
poses a threat to our security because it may soon be able to make a
nuclear weapon. Big deal. We have nuclear-armed naval vessels in the
Persian Gulf patrolling their shore. Israel has 200 within easy firing
ra
nge. Who are we to deny Iran possession of what they are being
threatened with?
