Because foreign invasion to oust a pariah dictator worked so well in 2003.

Iraq is better off now than it was in, say, 2002, yes?

Assuming the U.S. and Israhell are the aggressors, Iran.

I'm pretty sure its reasonable to say the Israeli government, while not perfect, is preferable to the Iranian regime.

Perhaps I'll think like you do when I hit whatever age you're at now Tongue

I deeply believe in the tooth fairy and anyone who disagrees with me is an enemy (BTW, I misread your post at first, thought you'd said 71, and did a double take).

You're an awful debater.

I never got the intellectual reasoning behind the idea that one must take part oneself in all actions one support. Why is that?

Do you have any arguments that aren't ad hominem attacks? And, no, I don't stalk you. You might be exaggerating your importance to me just a tad, there. You just happened to say particularly bad things on threads I was following.

Yes, I do. I just choose not to use them with you because its utterly pointless to attempt any sort of debate with you - you're always right in your head and everyone else is some feckless idiot for not believing the same as you.

much as Kucinich said he was "proud" when the 60% of (D)s in the House in 2002 voted against the authorization of force in Iraq, I am proud here as a non-negligible slice of the Atlas pledges to stand with the sovereign Islamic Republic of Iran if and when it is attacked by the West.

Yes, the knee jerk anti-Americanism on this board must make a fellow hater "proud".

Yeah, yeah the US and Israel are the only aggressors here.  Roll Eyes  Keep the blinders on buddy, it's the only way you can stay safe.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

And, for me, opposing US intervention in Libya was one of my few moments of dovishness...

Yes, I've noticed that. It's very ideologically out-of-context for me, considering I support an invasion of Iran. (And before someone accuses me of reflexively opposing Obama, I have vocally supported, for instance, his Pakistan policy).

Why would anyone support Iran? I understand being opposed to the idea of a war, but if you had to choose, why a repressive dictatorship?

And don't bulls**t me about how the US is a dictatorship, man! because it's a representative democracy, no matter what you may think.
