Israil and it's human rights and disregard for lowes, not agreeing to a two state soliton. Is the fundamental rout of the problems in the Iranian anger twords US. The people of Iran think that us policies are anti Islamic pro Zionist and is finally aimed at expanding juish state and tearing mideleast and cutting Iran up. And to this end you will see support in Iran for the present regim as it stands for keeping their country and Shia religion in tact.
US as an old ally of Iran should show some understanding of people of Iran and stop this categoric support of Israel wrong or right. We are always looking for a fair judge and US in the last 30 years is not been one.

Israel is what counts, who cares about Iran except its evil intentions with nukes.

How does support of Israel by definition make us Iran's enemy? The USA has consistently supported the two-state solution since its inception in 1946, but the Palestinians cannot seem to quit killing one another long enough to form a viable government. The USA is one of the largest donors to the Palestinians.

The entire premise behind the creation of Israel included a two state solution. The Jews agreed, the Muslims didn't.

There's been many attempts since then with Jordanstinian leaders refusing any solution.

To turn that into fallacious logic which condemns the US is just ridiculous and hi lights the reasons peace will never happen.

And as stated, the US has always supported a two state solution and supported "Palestinians" with handouts, not to mention a plethora of other Muslim states.

You are right, the USA is mighty. But perhaps the most interesting aspect of that might is how much of it we withhold. Even an attack on Iran would not represent more than about 20% of our might and would feature huge efforts to limit civilian casualties. It is not fear that causes us to hold back, but compassion and prudence can be confused with fear. That confusion can be a very serious error.

Don't blame US and Israelis. The one that should be blame is big government establishment.

Imagine this .... What if America and Israeel have commitment to keep government spending at 10%. Israel spend 60% of GDP. And America spend 50% of GDP. The problem of all war is big government.

He was NOT democratically elected. H was appointed by the Shah as PM/

America did not create Saddam.

Saddam invaded Kuwait and was crushed by a coalition.

America had bases in Saudi for years.

The US defense budget is 4.8% of the US annual GDP.

The source of most war in the ME is religion.
