Seems To Me That Iran Has Every Right To Attack USA
pre-emptively if they use the same logic the USA used for attacking Iraq.

1. I know, and because that's so creepy,
let's keep that idea quiet by not giving it any more energy than we have to.

2. Seems to me that this is not such a great idea for all kinds of reasons.
These reasons should be obvious to any decent human being, not to mention the obvious problems presented by a U.S. citizen advocating such a thing.

4. Wasn't Advocating - Just Saying That They Had The Right
IF you use the same logic. I for one never fell for that logic. P.S. I hardly think it would be a wise move by Iran.

6. Saying they have the right is a very far cry from saying they have
either the capability or desire to do so. And it is also a far cry from claiming someone is advocating doing so.

That said, to mis-quote Billy Jack, 'If it looks like an ass kicking is inevitable, it's a good idea to get in the first kick.' Because of the threatening posture the US has taken, they have every reason to believe that we are going to attack them. They could, very legitimately, use that as a reason for a pre-emptive strike.

Of course, they never will, because they aren't fucking stupid enough to do so.

3. Using the Bush Crime Family's logic,
any nation has the right to attack any other nation at any time, using only the flimsiest of excuses as cover.

8. They Could Just Recycle Bush Speeches And Replace Iraq
with USA.
