The Taliban are Sunni, and Iran is Shiite. They have never cooperated with each other and have always been enemies.


Wrong. Iran is supporting the Taliban. They support Hamas which is Sunni as well.

Iran's foreign policy record shows that as a whole, Iran has been quite a peaceful country and has at most times been a victim rather than an aggressor. We can criticize its Domestic policy much more harshly, and for good reason, since it's a theocracy and a dictatorship that suppresses human rights, however it does not have an aggressive record when it comes to foreign policy.


So you missed the whole part about Iran being the number 1 state sponsor of terrorism?

Just because he doesn't agree with you on the subject of Israel you also expect him to disagree with you here? Interesting.


Indeed I do. Iran and Israel are hardly unconnected contentious subjects. I fail to see why it is so interesting really but if you find it that interesting that is your prerogative. :thumbup:

They declared war on basic human rights.


And all of which are applicable to Saudi Arabia. More so in some cases. And the international scorn and vilification of SA is... Non existent really? We luff them and sell them weapons of mass destruction. Difficult to use human rights violations as justification while turning a blind eye to people who do exactly the same and worse while we call them our allies...

Hey.

Mr. Genius.

This thread

Is about

Iran's foreign policy.

Not

Iran's

Domestic

Policy.

The purpose of this thread was to discuss: how is Iran a threat to the rest of the world? The fact is that it is not a threat to the rest of the world. If you want to discuss Iran's domestic issues, then we can do that in another thread where you'd most likely hear a lot of criticism from me directed at the status quo of Iran.

Was the part of Iran you are chatting about mentioned in the OP? No, so, stop muddying the water. This is about Iran attacking other countries.

If you wish to go off topic into irrelevant territory I shall follow. :what:

My large.

Read my post, "genius"! Iran is a threat to everyone in this world who fits the criteria in my post, they just dont have the power...Yet!

The current government have declared war on the whole of humanity, at least that portion of it that doesn't agree with its Nazi philosophy.

Do try to comprehend things, especially topics you raise. OK "genius"? :thumbup:

I ask again.

When was the last time Iran started a war by invading/attacking another country?

Did you even read my post? You are trying to make Iran look innocent by artificially narrowing down your question.

Secondly, I'm speechless. Iran started the War in Afghanistan? Iran is responsible for 9/11? What the fuck man!

If Iran funds terrorist cells, or the Taliban, they are involved and responsible.

So it's ok to fund terrorists if it was a few years ago, that was fine, but anyone funding terrorists now would be deeply wrong and totally incomparable.

Point out where my posts were unfactual about Saudi being just as bad and in some cases worse than Iran.

Although if you did want to source where the President declared war on the rest of humanity I'd be vaguely interested in reading that.

Do you have any evidence that Iran funded the terrorists that pulled 9/11?

Btw, the Taliban didn't pull 9/11, Al Qaeda did. The Taliban did not attack the U.S., Al Qaeda did.

Al Qaeda =/ The Taliban
