I fully agree that the Western nations have up to now been 'rearranging the chairs on the Titanic" for the past year or two, while the Islamic republic of Iran is hell bent on producing a nuclear weapon.

The western nations are 'dilly dallying' because Russia and China are sitting on the side lines with lucrative contracts with Iran. It will take the US, UK, Germany, France, Italy & maybe Australia to collectively act and destroy the nuclear capabiity of Iran with conventional weapons after first giving the Iranian opposition a chance for a regime change.

If the West is serious about a regime change in Iran, there is an immediate solution to the problem, the US could turn the blocked Iranian assets over to the Iranian opposition groups who wants a democratic Iran. Iranians know Iranian mentality better than any foreign government. It is time for the US government to get serious about regime change in Iran.

Bombing Iran maybe not the most effective way for regime change. It may in all probability create either civil war, or some kind of desperate, lethal unity inside Iran against the so called 'aggressor'. The release of blocked Iranian funds to opposition groups would not be burden on the US as the funds legitimately belongs to the Iranians

The majority of Iranians want to be free from the oppressive Mullahs who control their lives and steal the wealth of Iran for themselves. Most Iranians know that America is their last haven of hope for their deliverance from a theocracy. The world owes a great deal to America for inspiration and practical accomplishment.

The world is captivated by the sudden rise of a relatively unknown Islamic fascist to the presidency of the Islamic Republic of Iran, for his torrent of outrageous statements and claims. He is viewed as a fascist, fanatic, anti-Semitic, lunatic and more, same as the world viewed Hitler in the 1930's.

Once again I think the West is misreading and misjudging the people and the events in the Middle East, due to the fact that it views things through its own prism.
