Jeremy said: They [Iran] may not have desires to expand their borders, there ambition is much more dangerous. They wanna expand their fascist,apocalyptic and murderous interpretation of Islam
If that is the case, we could teach them a few things about how to expand their fascist, apocalyptic and murderous interpretation of Islam, just as we have done historically, and have been doing with Christianity - perhaps we are simply getting a taste of our own medicine and that frightens you!
If you are correct in your assessment, their desire is simply to do what Christians have been doing for centuries! America has misused Christianity for centuries, in order to spread its secular-political influence around the world.
And the only thing that America has been saying to the world of late is that we have superior military power, we are the king of the hill and just try to knock us off if you can - for we are not going to change and we are not doing down without a fight!
If that's what you want fine, but some of the rest of us would prefer to work with other nations of the world towards a just peace for all people, and for every other nation of the world!

Our current leadership in Washington has in all likelihood determined the manner in which America and its allies will probably be forced to live for the remainder of the century.
#43 told them to bring it on, and they have done just that. And now every American citizen will be subjected to monumental scrutiny by its own government, as well as 9/11 style attacks on America's streets. Why? Because our current leadership in Washington did not know the real enemy that lied within - and that enemy was not the majority of America's rank and file citizens. Also, the real enemy is not a group of so-called terrorists who reside on the other side of the world.
I do not mean to wax apocalyptic, however, America clearly needs to change course, for being the world's bully-nation is not working. It is bad enough that we have to avoid our own home-grown terrorists/criminals in and out of our homes, soon America's citizens will have to also encounter international terrorists, criminals and government agents in their neighborhoods and homes.
Further, I can recall the days, just a year or so ago, in Washington DC, when many of the District's street corners were occupied by large jovial elephant and donkey caricatures; the figures had been placed on each corner in order to create an air of jocularity in the city for Washington residents and visitors.
In that spirit, the Rev can also envision a day that is coming soon, when all over America's streets and causeways will be filled with highly-advanced and programmable Robocop type figures and drones(Remember the movie?). America's Robocops, will have been disbursed by the American government, probably via the Office of Homeland Security in order to continue the anti-terrorist fight on American streets that our current administration in Washington is bent on perpetuating. These bomb-sniffing, people watching, surveilling techno-robots will be present on street corners all over America - simply, because America refuses to change its illegal an ungodly course in the world.
America's rogue behaviors and actions in the world have come under deep scrutiny by other nations of the world, including America's historical allies. America, must also change its ways! For America's ways, are not God's ways either!
