I think you are referring to Iraq.At least half of that was Bush's superstition.
Watch out or someone might say you're anti-Semitic. :VIsrael is every much a pit of barbaric religious fanatics and nationalist militants as any of its neighbors. Its formation was a mistake from the very beginning.
Israel doesn't go around torching embassies :v
Iran is just being a giant, butthurt baby who got caught with it's fingers in the Nuclear Weapons Program cookie jar by the IAEA and Amhurrica.
Iran doesn't go around launching air strikes on its neighbours - whereas Israel is notorious for it (Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, Iraq...).
(And before anyone raises the Iran-Iraq Gulf War, Iraq attacked Iran first in that one.)
Because their country was recklessly founded as an 'apology' for the Holocaust. Don't you know Jews can do no wrong?^This!
Also, when Iraq was building a nuclear reactor Israel popped it with an air strike. President Reagan about pooped himself in surprise when he found out about it (Iraq was our ally back then. And yes, Saddam was in control at the time). The US has a history of turning a blind eye to Israel's antics in that region. Even when it strikes out at US allies.
Could be because India and Israel have never stormed a US embassy, with ayatolla Khomaniac praising the hostage takers for such a deed. Just sayin'Whereas Israel have been lock, stock and barrel inside that Nuclear Weapons Program cookie jar for decades with American connivance, not to mention the recent deal between the USA and India for nuclear technology transfer despite India being outside the Non-Proliferation Treaty and being a nuclear weapon state.
Double standards, much?

President Gerald Ford signed a directive in 1976 offering Tehran the chance to buy and operate a U.S.-built reprocessing facility for extracting plutonium from nuclear reactor fuel. The deal was for a complete 'nuclear fuel cycle'. At the time, Richard Cheney was the White House Chief of Staff, and Donald Rumsfeld was the Secretary of Defense. (emphasis added)
The Ford strategy paper said the "introduction of nuclear power will both provide for the growing needs of Iran's economy and free remaining oil reserves for export or conversion to petrochemicals. (emphasis added)"
And the government wonders why it's country keeps getting subjected to terrorism.Iran at one time did have a democracy; then America and Britian started a coup, overthrowing him. Then they installed a pro-western government, the people got pissed and overthrew them in 1979. Now we have modern day Iran. Which could be considered a mess that the US imposed on itself.
So day say that fundies screwed over Iran, it was America and it's allies that brought on this to themselves. Kinda like how they sent millions upon millions of dollars of weapons and training to Afghanistan, along with Pakistan.
