so if there's was no agreement then why any expectations?

Pallets of their own money?
And I seem to remember several pallets of money going to Iraq during our "rebuilding" their as well.
If you also have a problem with that being illegal during the Bush admin I'll give your legal complaint a thumbs up.

After decades of the U.S abuses including... gov't overthrow, support of dictator, proxy war attack from Iraq, decades of sanctions from 1979 to 2016, warships off it's coast, assassination of Iranian scientist, threats of "wiping them off the map"...
SO i suppose the 2 years of U.N. lifted sanctions , and giving them access to some of their own money might be considered "appeasement" by some folks...I guess.

But I'm still not sure what "trouble" you're expecting from Iran.
will they close the straits? If so what will happen. they'll be BUSTED to crap.
Will the attack Israel? If so they'll be Busted to Crap Before they can do it.
Will they attack the U.S. mainland ...scratch that... would they even attack any U.S. ships? If so folks like Bolton and yourself would approve of their total annihilation.

Iran is not stupid, they've played this game since the 80's.
So before someone blames Iran for some crime, check the facts.
Trump didn't collude with Russia, but some people in gov't would like us believe that he did... and throw Trump out. that game is played with nations as well. don't let bias blind us in another BS war.

BTW when did the U.S. start attacking countries or fighting wars based on Crystal Ball predictions of what MIGHT happen "sooner or later" becasue we know someone is a "bad guy".

OH YEAH, after W Bush did it.

yeah, that's still unconstitutional, and war criminal actions there.
Attacking other countries without being 1st attacked or under direct imminent attack is a war crime. We hung people after WW2 for it.
PreEmptive war is just a euphemism for Invasion.

Some people seem intent on mollycoddling Iran, and believing that Iran is up to nothing bad. I would consider that a mental instability, but that's me.

IRAQ and Saddam is up to something nefarious you say... people who don't think so must be crazy?
Because we KNOW IT? "There is NO DOUBT that he has them and will use them"?

OH, you're talking about IRan, well that's totally different... i guess.

Those are my quotation marks, not yours.

Basically you appear to believe that there is nothing that Iran is doing that is bad.

Iran has been doing bad stuff for decades. Nothing NEW.
Nothing that deserves MORE military response than they've earned to date. They haven't attacked the U.S. or U.S. planes or Ships... (at least nothing debateably not over there waters.). they haven't invaded neighboring countries. they haven't blocked the strait. They don't even have any nukes. not one.


They HAVE supported Hamas for years, But outside of that it's hard to find their hands in much of anything terrorism wise.
Most of the world's terrorism is coming from our Wahabist "friends" in Saudi Arabia.

Other than Hamas the only other SURE thing i know that Iran has done negatively is to chant "Death to America".

There's nothing worthy of U.S. bombing or going to war for. it's just the SAME OL same OL minor pain in the arse.
Being a bad bit player on the world stage is what a 1/3 of the earths countries do.
Do we just get bomb them becasue they don't hold their mouths the way likes it.

Look, If you can show the MAJOR problem that Iran is to the U.S. at this point then maybe i'll move some in your direction.
But right now all i see is a series of half baked accusations and over-bloviated outrage.

Some people can never be shown anything that will make them move.

That is the best way to accomplish something. Do not show anything to another.
