Virtually no one here want any of that. All declarations otherwise they pretty much want the status quo to continue of more wars, more meddling and more welfare.

I mean there is a reason why the party of small limited govt and personal freedom only gets a tiny sliver of votes.

The severity of the suffering and the applied suppression efforts by the holy joe's will determine whether riots will continue.
Famines in China and Islam never used to make the papers here,,, except on slow news days or in periodicals like the Nat'l Geographic's.
As heartless as it seems sending any kind of aid at this time is not in our best interests,,, it would be like seriously thinking Black Lives matter.
Every American should see 1st hand how people have lived in these over populated foreign paradises,,, being down and out in American is like sex,,, at it's worst it's wonderful.

The USA has not been running guns into Iran..............from Iraq.
Rioters did not take weapons from the cops.

The USA has not been fomenting revolution using Iranian and Israeli spies.

Saudi Arabia is not plotting against Iran.
Iraq (Sunni) is not plotting against Iran.

Israel is not plotting against Iran.

The same old story....getting Muslims to kill other Muslims, is working perfectly again.

Iran CAN be Syria, just like California.

Interesting. Pat Buchanan argued against your points concerning Iran around 15 years ago, and predicted we'd get right where we are today. Maybe he knew something or he's just a fortune teller, LOL.

You know - some silly USA-haters might even bring up our former relationship with Saddam and the war against Iran, but it'd probably fall on deaf ears.
