  1. So where does Kaplan go wrong?

    He isn’t wrong. The only thing that is keeping the extremists in power is a common enemy in the form of the US. If the United States left Iran alone the people would throw out the fundamentalists because few Iranians will have much use for them any longer.

    1. yes , there is nothing SO easy as tossing out a theocratic,dictatorial regime.they sort of almost did it a couple of years ago.but then obama sided with the regime.HA HA so amusing.

        Obama? Really?

        The way I remember it the 2005 Iranian elections had the moderate candidate level with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad until the Bush Administration pushed the balance in favor of Ahmadinejad. It is time that Americans stopped believing the lie that there is a difference between the two parties. Both are anti-liberty and pro-war. Both have diverted scarce resources into never ending militarism that now consumes more in tax revenue than comes from personal income taxes.

  2. down with u.s.a

    1. You don’t read well. There is nothing anti-American about Kaplan’s position. Many of the neocons on this site tend to gloss over the fact that it was the Sunni extremists who attacked on 9/11 and have targeted Americans abroad. I think that it is time that most of these fools shut the hell up and let those that want peace and trade step up and fix their mess.
