I find your use of words "taunt the United States" and "aggressive posturing in Iraq and Lebanon" to be excessive, shallow for a reporter, and one sided. Who is taunting? And who was the most aggressive in Iraq... and still continues to be a force in Iraq? Who has built a military base on the order of Iraq and Iran? Regarding Lebanon... well, I cannot argue this point. However, I have been to the Middle East and I can understand why so many countries are against the establishment of Israel... however, it is what it is and we as a world must learn to live together, or end up fighting over ruble. We must also accept the fact that our views are not always the ‘right’ views/opinions from the position of the remainder of the world population… and also I have a question for you… what does national security mean to you? I find we are constantly told our foreign positioning is for the preservation of national security… what does this mean to you? And at what cost to the rest of the world?

This "article" is a disgrace. Particularly THIS quote: "Iran continues to taunt the United States with its aggressive posturing in Iraq and Lebanon".
You cannot substantiate that, and I would expect far more from my media than to simply parrot White House drivel.
The fact of the matter is, even if Iran is giving aid to these countries in their various struggles, who are we to say THEY are in the wrong here? It is, after all, WE who are 5000 miles from home, not them. It is WE who have aircraft carriers and destroyers parked off their coast. It is WE who have invaded their neighbors one by one in a stated effort by Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger, Dick Cheny, the members of PNAC, and virtually everyone who works for Rupert Murdoch to "remake the middle east" in our image - giving them all the holy gift of "democracy" at the barrel of a gun.
Ron Paul was right when he said that "they hate us because we're over there". Any rational person can clearly see how we've brought on this confrontation and there are those within our own government who recklessly want to take us to war with Iran, come hell or high water. They don't care who lives or dies because they THINK it won't be them. Well I've got news for those who think that - the American people are waking up to what you're doing. You won't gte away with this much longer.
