False Israeli and US predictions of an imminent Iranian nuclear weapon, beginning 20 years ago.

1992: Israeli member of parliament Binyamin Netanyahu predicts that Iran was “3 to 5 years” from having a nuclear weapon.

1992: Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres predicts an Iranian nuclear warhead by 1999 to French TV.

1995: The New York Times quotes US and Israeli officials saying that Iran would have the bomb by 2000.

1998: Donald Rumsfeld tells Congress that Iran could have an intercontinental ballistic missile that could hit the US by 2003

Hey brainwashed uneducated dweeb!! What's the world going to do, not just Israel and Jews you clowns hate so much if Iran gives a nuke to terrorists scumbags dumbazz! And when those terrorists get a nuke from Iran and set it off in London as Reza Jew Nutjob will be flying up in burst of flames screaming "LONG LIVE PRESIDENT MAHMOUD AHMADINNERJACKET!! Iran is the only country since Nazi germany that actually threatened to wipe out another country (Israel) FURHTERMORE, Stop trying to portray Iran to look like a peace loving nation DUMMY!! Do some thinking for a change clown!! Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran has been one of the world’s most active sponsors of terrorism. Tehran has armed, trained, financed, inspired, organized, and otherwise supported dozens of violent groups over the years. Iran has backed not only groups in its Persian Gulf neighborhood, but also terrorists and radicals in Lebanon, the Palestinian territories, Bosnia, the Philippines, and elsewhere. This support remains strong even today as Iran is tied to an array of radical groups in Iraq. Iran has publically Threatened Preemptive Strikes Against Israel and United States!! To sit there and not think for one minute that Iran would not pass on nuclear technology to terrorists, you'd have to be brain dead!!
No one can guarantee this will not happen, not even you! So do we gamble like we did Hitler and Nazi Party and presume they want to live in peace or do we wait and hope we all don't wake up someday to find terrorists using nukes supplied to them by Iran! Many countries including Pakistan and Israel have had nukes for decades and have never threatened publically the destruction of another country. The Six Day War started with threats and movement of troops to all the borders surrounding Israel!! Should Israel have waited for her destruction. NO! And neither should any other country!!

All hype by megalomaniac N'yhoo warmonger! If there was concrete evidence for Iran's direct involvement in terrorist activities since 1979, you could be sure that the US would have done a preemptive attack on Iran, just like they did on Afghanistan, and Iraq which never terrorised anyone except it's own people and the Iranians.

At the International Court of Justice, Nicaragua claimed that the contras were altogether a creation of the U.S. The evidence of a very close relationship between the contras and the U.S. was considered overwhelming and incontrovertible - it was known as the Regan doctrine.
The U.S. under Regan, played a very large role in financing, training, arming, and advising the contras over a long period, against the democratically elected government of Nicaragua and the contras, aka terrorists, only became capable of carrying out significant military operations as a result of this support.

A suit was filed in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against the United States (Nicaragua v. United States), which resulted in a 1986 judgment against the United States.

Sounds no different than your accusations against Iran in their supposed help to Hezbollah or Hamas.

And a state welfare parasite that dictates to the US what her foreign policy should be.
