Reader comment on item: Prepare to attack [Iran]
in response to reader comment: Who is a threat to whom ?

Submitted by Straight_Talk_Luigi (United States), Jun 23, 2008 at 16:29

You mean Iran is a threat to US, Russia, China, India and the rest of the world?

Yes, it is.

You are wrong

I don't think so.

US and Europe are a threat to Iran and the Middle East in General. not the other way round.

I'd say it works both ways.

They want to control the region and impose their will against the will of the people of the region.

Seems to me like orthodox Islam is the one doing that.

Who came from far to be next door to Iran, whose ships roam the gulf sea, who have Air bases in Afghanistan and Iraq and the Gulf states and Turkey......

STS, no country can have bases in another without that country's PERMISSION. Even in Iraq. All the bases that NATO has in non-NATO nations are arranged through the governments. It's a joint effort.

US and Britain and the other US allies are surrouning Iran from every corner, so who is a threat to whom?

Every corner? Do we have bases in Russia and Syria?
