I've read both your posts. Iran won't let the U.S. dominate the region. That could also be taken as a defensive statement, in that if you send "whatever" our way, we will have the necessary hardware w/fissile material and the trigger for it all, in order to REPEL such an attack. Similarly w/ Israel. I think to understand one has to see it that way. When it comes to military solutions, doesn't everyone think along the same lines, also the best defence is a good offence, so if you have the upper hand, you are all set. Believe me, it is a war of religion, religions. That is why we say: acharey kiclot hacol, levado yimloch nora." In other words, when men have stopped trying to solve their problems, Hashem will still be there. We are here on Earth for but a fleeting moment.
