I don't blame Iran at all. With the mustering of anti-Iran rhetoric from the WH, I don't blame them a bit for wanting to keep their country safer from another (illegal) invasion from the US. When the call for giving nukes up was made, way back when, Iran gave up the two that they had. Iran didn't start any of this...but, there is no love lost between Israel and Iran. How many wars are we going to fight in the ME for Israel? For me, one is too many....but money talks and AIPAC pays. We might as well be called The United States of Zionist Israel.
