freedom to all (Omma) Mohammad and to all world to be peace we must hold our hand and shout :we want to be free without restrictions make Doaa for ur brother and sister in Syria and Yemen to be free like in Tunis , Egypt and Libya
The US cannot afford to get into a conflict with Iran, if they lay mines in the Persian Gulf say goodbye to the global economy. Air strikes are too risky, and if the US wants to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan we'll need the Iranians on our side, because like it or not Iran is probably gonna back whoever will support them in those countries.
So I'm betting that after the 2012 elections in the US (Obama can't risk it yet) you're gonna see the United States trying to reach an accommodation with Iran much like we did with the Soviets in WWII and the Chinese during the Cold War.
so you believe in what the US are doing ? .... I see that only the United States seeks to protect itself in the first place, whether from Iran or other And not to protect the affected countries, including Such as Syria is currently It is well known that Iran is supporting the first of Bashar al-Assad As provide him with weapons and soldiers from time to time Because they are from one sect, a Shiite So they want to eliminate the revolution in Syria to their distaste for the people
although the US knew about the killing and destruction in Syria and torture the children before adults However, they content themselves with issuing decisions without performing so what do u think ?
I don't arbritarily suppport the policies of any administration that gains power in the US, but yes I would support an effort to make peace with Iran.
Of course the US seeks to protect itself first and its allies second; countries by their nature look out for themselves first and foremost, and at the moment al-Assad hasn't threatened regional security (oil security) enough to justify military action. I know that sounds unbelievably callous to someone whose seen the horrors and bloodshed in Syria first hand, but unfortunately foreign policy has never been about humanitarianism or what is morally right; its about the cold calculus of interests, and as far is the US government is concerned there is no immediate benefit to intervening in Syria. Personally I think that if the protestors (revolutionaries?) in Syria create a transitional council, much like Libya, they could gain the legitamacy for NATO and possibly even the Saudis to intervene. The American leadership just won't do that on their own because they've seen what happens when we go into a country guns blazing for the sake of toppling a dictator.
I know Iran supports al-Assad, but US cooperation with Iran might drive the Saudis (his biggest benefactor) to pressure him to step down out of fear of Iran gaining a foothold in the Mediterranean.
I know everything I just said can give no comfort, and probably does little to lift any anger or frustration you have with my country, but you asked for my opinion and I had to explain the reasoning behind it. If you think of me some kind of monster, I'll understand, but I lived through three conflicts where the US overreached and cost a lot of people their lives in the name of humanitarianism (Iraq not so much) and as they say: The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
I heard today Iran is actually reversing their stance on al Assad and they now want him gone rather than risk confrontation with the NATO (and probably Israel who is just looking for an excuse to pick a fight.)
I'm sorry for the long winded response from before BTW, its just that when I'm talking to people outside the US I think its best to explain my reasoning as best I can so that I don't come across as some typical red neck American monster. I truly wish you and your fellow Syrians success, and hope the violence ends as soon as possible.
Iran, like any other country her personal interest and that interest at the expense of the lives of many people .......
It is probably found that it interest to leave their support for alassad ... so this is not a point of great oversees Iran
Thank you for your feelings and i know that not all terrorist attacks in Iraq or Pakistan involving Americans and that the American people reject many of the decisions that are offensive to the rest of the peoples of the developing world So you and the other from the American people will not bore the error
