when asked about the end of the war in the m/e and
else the answer is when the banksters run out of fiat funds.most so called educated people do not know why the genocide by israel and the u.s. runs on,do you?the answer is in the wind,greed.the people in the u.s. could care less about the millions of kids and parents that perish,even there own in the armed services,why? the answer is in the wind.mind you the nations ruined in the m/e had no navy,air force or army to defend themselves,only iran has stood fast.all of the talk about the weapons of mass destruction's is bull manure. why is the field grade army officers rotated and the enlisted serve till they drop?

I don't deny that the United States has done its share of wrong and stupid things. But reckless phrases like "genocide by Israel" don't help. I like Iranian people and their beautiful culture. But the government of Iran is a warmongering terrorist that has openly called for Israel's destruction. Just who is plotting genocide against whom, huh?
The Allies also did wrong to Germany at the Treaty of Versailles. But did that justify Hitler and the things he did? Rather than painting the US as the villain of the piece, stand loyally by her and Israel while the shish kebab equivalent of Hitler threatens international peace and safety.
