Jeff:"To those who think Iran is an irrational rouge state, I would submit that despite outrageous rhetoric, they have behaved very methodically and pragmatically on the world stage for a coupled of decades now. Contrary to other countries, they have been rather successful without getting (overtly) directly involved in any wars, other than their strategic support of the Syrian government (which makes a great deal of sense from their standpoint for a number of reasons)."


Iran has spent hundreds of millions supplying weapons to Gaza to be used against Israel. Tens of thousands of rockets, RPGs, plus all sorts of tunnel building supplies including millions of pounds of cement.

Iran has fomented 'revoluntary' groups all over the Mid East from Libya to Tunesia to Yemen.....and supplied them with weapons.

despite their promises it's still working on a nuke bomb and intends to get there sooner or later.

Iran has sent both supplies and troops to southern Iraq - trying to take over 1/3rd the country.

No way are they simply a 'peaceful' country. They're a sworn enemy of the 'opposite' side of Islam...the Shia vs Sunni battle and they'll keep at it till both factions wind up in a massive war.
