In the end, what all this means is that if Iran is attacked, the people attacking Iran will face the same outcome that Saddam Hussein did: a 'united' Iran! Why risk the alienation of people of Iran? Why make them suffer more?

U.S. actions (and rhetoric) must be focused and targeted at the regime ONLY. Words and actions must be carefully measured. If you want to be an a**hole, be an a**hole to the regime -- NOT the people of Iran. Policy makers in Washington need to wise up.

It may already be too late. Trump may have squandered what little good will Iranians already had towards the U.S. This travel ban -- might have been the last straw. He is offering nothing positive to ordinary Iranians. It will his (and his allies') loss.

All the F-35s in the world, will not translate to success on the ground. Didn't the outcome in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria teach something to these idiotic warmongers? The real battle is for people's hearts and minds... Not oilfields!

The American brand has been badly damaged. Good will goes a long way. Maybe Trump will understand this very last statement -- for he makes a lot of money in his commercial endeavors with his name and brand. There must be a complete reset. A whole new approach. Washington needs to think again.

This type of alienation is NOT in America's long-term national interest. Making ordinary Iranians the enemy is not wise or helpful. Silly words and actions may indeed be leading the U.S. into essentially handing the keys to the next century's treasure vaults to the Chinese, Russians and Iranians (who by the way are now allies). And another great country--India (who by the way has excellent relations with Iran)--is watching, and following events very closely.

Instead of alienating ordinary Iranians, the U.S. may end up alienating itself! This is simply idiotic. Washington has to think again!
