Iran and Afghanistan were truly 3rd world countries. The poorest of the poor. If not for Iran's continual interference in Iraq, they would be doing much better if you ask me.
Iran is causing most of the instability in the region. That is the last pillar to topple. They are funding(as well as SA) the other bad guys in the region. Once the dust settles and the smoke clears, the middle east can truly rebuild with friendship and security.
I can wave my prick all I like, and others can tuck theirs between their legs..to each their own.
We "rolled into Iraq" without much difficulty if you remember..or maybe you can't.
The preferred course of action is to wait until someone there has the guts to take action and over throw the leaders. I am doubtful that this will happen.

The Iranian regime IS headed for destruction. It doesn't need our military coming in there and reunifying them against us. Let it destroy itself with a little covert assistance from us. I have absolutely no problem with that kind of involvement.
Islam may not be conducive to individual liberty. I say it is worth a shot. Once they can kiss their girl friends in public, or drink a beer in the park, they might have different opinions after tasting freedom.
