    You are totally off the mark, my friend. Iran is not the aggressor nation. In fact, Iran has not attacked anyone for over 130 years. On the other hand, it has been attacked by Iraq in the 1980s - at the prodding and with wholesale U.S. support. Iraqi aggression was a fiasco, because Iran ended up occupying portions of Iraq by the end of the war in the 1988. Situation was returned to the status quo per the peace agreement. Israel is another story. With it's scant sixty years of existence, it has been involved in six wars, numerous clandestine actions and many overt actions of subjugation and occupation(i.e Cast Lead). Not to mention the OT consisting of Palestinian land, Syrian land, and which at one time consisted of Egyptian and Lebanese land. Rhetoric is one thing, facts another. Israel is an occupying power, very warlike, advocating so called preemptive strikes(in another words, aggresive action). Iran spouts threats to remove 'Zionist entitiy', but it's military leaders clearly state that they will not attack unless attacked first. And Iran doesn't hold any territory of its neighbors in bondage. Those are the facts and you should check them before making claims of Iran being aggressor nation.
