Robot: Are you having a laugh? Is that meant to be a joke answer?
Israel hasn’t invaded any countries. >:Just so so wrong, read a book.
Iran has invaded the U.S. and Iraq. >:Hahaha, when? Are you drunk? When did Iran deploy troops in Los Angeles? In the war of never happened?
The U.S. has invaded Grenada (there were other military actions but they were done by coalitions). >:See above incursion list.
None have used any of the methods described (Iran is too backwards to use surgical strikes). >:… again, read please.
Iran has seized and tortured civilian hostages. >:Which ones? The Americans? Please show evidence they were tortured. Name one official article detailing their abuse.
Iran has threatened nuclear holocaust and genocide. >:Well, no, that’s impossible as they have no nukes!
Iran has executed gays as government policy. >:I agree this is bad. I don’t think Iran is perfect. This doesn’t call for what America has done to them though. That is a cultural matter.
Iran has tortured and raped women as government policy. >:This is grasping. Rape and torture have certainly happened but sponsored by the government? I don’t think so.
Bethy: In case you didn’t read it correctly the question was not ":Why has Iran never done anything unethical?":. Of course Iran does bad things, all countries do bad things. The point is that the US is basically a bully in this case that has been picking on a very meek and non-aggressive nation that wants only to be left alone. It’s not to say Iran is a utopian paradise. It’s to say Iran does not deserve this treatment. It’s to say America has been a monster to the Iranian people and their hatred is deserved. And ps, if you could link Iran to terror funding (I’m not saying you can’t but then again nobody ever lists real proof when they accuse them), does that small bit of funding done in retaliation equal what the US has done to Iran? You need to give your head a shake. I don’t want to see the US fall into Iran’s situation, but if it did and another nation was doing what the US does to Iran, I would have little sympathy for America.
I’m in a hurry so I’ll make it straight 🙂
Iran never attacked any countries , and never ever his own People , I don’t know what ‘ SGT. D ‘ means , but Iraq Has used poison gas on their own people in ‘ shalamche ‘ if u mean that . IraN and IraQ are different Countries 🙂 IraQ attacked IraN in September 1980 .
but about USA and Israel , well , USA has attacked Vietnam , Iraq , Afghanistan , a country in Caribbean Sea ,I think , I’m not sure about that though , has used Nuclear weapons in Japan ,
and bombed an Iranian Plane in Persian Gulf , it wasn’t war , but it hurt us .
and Israel has used White Phosphorus in Lebanon and Palestine , and had a war with Egypt .
I think the only war Iran has been in in recent times has been with Iraq.
Israel and USA have both been the aggressor in wars within the last 50 years.
I see the irony. Thank you for bringing to light what most people don’t even see
When you consider what Iran has really been doing via proxy, the have set bombs off in a lot of nations.
Israel hasn’t invaded any countries.
Iran has invaded the U.S. and Iraq.
The U.S. has invaded Grenada (there were other military actions but they were done by coalitions).
None have used any of the methods described (Iran is too backwards to use surgical strikes).
Iran has seized and tortured civilian hostages.
Iran has threatened nuclear holocaust and genocide.
Iran has executed gays as government policy.
Iran has tortured and raped women as government policy.
But liberals don’t care about those sorts of things.
I see your point and I totally agree with you.
But don’t bother with Americans. When it comes to politics, most of them are too brainwashed to be able to think. FoxNews and CNN work quite well on Americans.
Could you please include Iran’s favorite method of causing destruction
The funding and training of militant groups
I mean you cant have a valid question without all of the issues
You’re dumb enough to believe the ":white phosphorus": crap?
I don’t believe the U.S or Isreal has ever used poison gas on their own people.
only the ones that deserved it…
