Let's remember the following little incidents too:

the 1953 US/UK Iranian Coup D'etat, classified until the '90s. Talk about spreading democracy!

Mohammad Mosaddeq and the 1953 Coup in Iran

On the morning of August 19, 1953, a crowd of demonstrators operating at the direction of pro-Shah organizers with ties to the CIA made its way from the bazaars of southern Tehran to the center of the city. Joined by military and police forces equipped with tanks, they sacked offices and newspapers aligned with Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddeq and his advisers..(much more)>>

And there was the time the US blew an Iranian civilian aircraft right out of the sky, in their own airspace killing 3 times the number of children at Sandy Hook.

What would the US do if Iran blew a US civilian aircraft out of the sky in our own airspace? When was the last time Iran bombed and invaded another country? Let's count the US since 1999: Kosovo(PNAC) Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and who really knows where else.

If Iran is a "threat" then every single dollar every American has been forced to contribute to the "Defense" department has been wasted. Pissed away, Stolen.
