Privacy, Security, Encryption "Mr. Obama decided to accelerate the attacks - begun in the Bush administration and code-named Olympic Games - even after an element of the program accidentally became public in the summer of 2010 because of a programming error that allowed it to escape Iran's Natanz plant and sent it around the world on the Internet. Computer security experts who began studying the worm, which had been developed by the United States and Israel, gave it a name: Stuxnet." And we're letting these people have unmanned drones. Seems legit.

I don't understand. Iran is consistently threatning Israel, calling for its eradication and at the same time financing and supplying weapons to many anti-Israely groups, like Hisballa, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and others. And yet, Israel and USA, while defending from clear threat are the bad guys. What a twisted logic.

Oh Cinderella, don't play so naive. Do you want to free Iranian people too, with your democrazy? But Syrians first, right?

Anything your "democratic" (read: evil, money hungry, oil thirsty, homophobic, hypocrite, coward...) regimes touch, turns sterile - look Balkans, North Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan... those are now regions where time is reversed decades in past, made miserable by the power of your greed and ignorance

You ruin any ideal and noble thought man can have about human race. I disguise

Wow, he might be missinformed.. but you SURE are too!
First of all, i agree that the diaspora of persian (note that i did not use the term iranian) is quite extensive, and if they all went home with a gun each, they could possibly topple the regime rather easily. That is not what the west wants though it seems. Syria is an extreme case where you do not seem to grasp that a large body of people actually LIKE Assad's regime. It is truly a civil war and although i would prefer a free and prosperous Syria, it is more likely to go down like in Libya or Egypt if that struggle is interfered with.
Next point is the balkans.. How dare you sir. The Balkans is not backwards compared to the US in several ways. (you have to define "reversed decades" to get to the point) It is in several countries freer on the personal level than the united states. Ok there is open corruption in many (not all) Balkan countries but that is rather a remnant and legacy of the previous communist regimes than from the implementation of more open markets. In the cases of Afghanistan and Iraq... they were pretty miserable beneath the thumb of the earlier regimes as well. Might not be a justification, and i do not agree with those wars for your information. But also mr/mrs pashar is only telling half of the story. Of course Hezbollah and others want to remove Israel, the muslims has been wanting it back since it was conquered. I do not support either side in this endless bloodshed, but seeing one side as evil and the other as good makes this whole argument rather silly.

Hmmm... I don't remember I wrote about freeing Iranian or any other people. But you may assume whatever you find comfortable.

I don't think that gives anyone a right to shoot children in the head...
