Iran is a major instigator of violence in the region. Please stop being in denial. Who do you think is supplying the weaponry and the training? Santa Claus?<quoted text>
Ottomans did not ruin the region. The Brits did.
Iranians have done nothing. If Iran had wanted, it would have taken all of them centuries ago. Does the name Cyrus ring a bell?
Was Iran expanding when the European nations were colonizing the world using trade and deceit?
Now to your question, which I consider a great question. The answer is:
Sit down and talk!
The best example is the USSR, an entity, which was out to destroy the US. Right? Does Russia want to destroy the US and vice versa? Follow the example.
So, please answer my question - how DO you negotiate peace with an organization that exists solely to eradicate you?
