Yea, maybe he is. But he is only the President, and in Iran, the President does not have the final say, the ayatollahs do. And I haven't heard that the majority of the ayatollahs want war with Israel. Instead, the very fact that we're discussing Israel striking Iran's nuke facilities and not vice versa is proof enough of Iran's pacifist attitude towards war. What option did it have? How about implementing the UN resolution that created Israel in 1948? Let's not mince words here. Israel is an artificial state just like Pakistan, in fact it's much worse. If a part of India were broken off in 1947, and gifted away to Gypsies who haven't had any ties with the subcontinent for centuries, and subsequently, the gypsies barricaded the Indians living there in refugee camps for decades, we'd be just as pissed off as the Palestinians are. I'm talking about the modern state of Iran. When we say that India has never started any war, we refer to the modern republic of India, don't we? Same analogy. So if Pakistan issues a statement to Indian Muslims to overthrow the "infidel" Indian government in Delhi, that is reason enough for India to go to war against Pakistan? What kind of silly reasoning is this? and this. Make up your mind. Isn't that the same reasoning that G W Bush used? That terrorists are attacking the US "because they hate our democracy and freedom?" The world has moved on from such delusional and irrational thinking, you know.
