Remember that when you say that word "Iran", you are talking about millions of people who (1) like the USA, (2) had nothing to do with 1979, and (3) are completely innocent of any wrong doing. When we think of war with Iran, that will include US servicemen who will die, some of those people I mentioned in the above sentence, all of those wasted resources, and a further characterization of the USA as a war monger. Will the Iranian government poop-heads and those who did 1979 suffer and die. Unfortunately, probably not.

It is also the unanimous judgment of the U.S. intelligence community, declared in 2007 and affirmed in 2011, that Iran has abandoned any program to build nuclear weapons.

Is the Ayatollah lying? Is the entire U.S. intel community wrong?
