If you saw someone beating up on an old lady would you intervene?
There is a tipping point when you decide one way or the other about who is friend or foe. Who can be trusted or not trusted. I suppose there is a middle ground where you think they can be ignored but not considered as a friend or trusted.
However the point at which you decide they are an enemy or you decide if they can be trusted is very distinct to me.
Based on his public statements, I don't trust Ahmadinejad and I think he is an enemy of the free world which we enjoy so much. I wish Iran could be part of the free world.
I know you hate these comparisons but wouldn't you hate to live in Iran? I think it is reasonable to determine the malevolence or benevolence of a leader by considering how it would be to live under his rule.
Iran is stirring the shit in Iraq and Lebanon and you know it.
