As an Iranian girl, 23 years old, The long support of USA officials of countries government of Saudi Arabia?

As an Iranian girl, 23 years old, The long support of USA officials of countries government of Saudi Arabia?

and Pakistan is not comprehensive for me at all.

While Saudi Arabia had a major role in 911 catastrophe , infact, 11 of 15 of 911 highjackers have been sponsored by this country, Iranian residents were among the few Muslim countries that hold demonstration on 9 11.

Secondly , polls is indicative of the fact that most Saudis are hostile toward Americans 11 in contrast with Iranians who are proAmericans .

In my country , more freedom have been given to women compare to other Muslim counties in middle east , women are allowed to drive , vote and run for office and 65 % of Iran university are women to the sharp contrast with country Saudi Arabia that in their country women have been deprived from the very basic rights of a human being.

Saudi Arabia helped finance the Taliban. Saudi Arabia private charities help sustain Al Qaeda as well and 90 % of American troops casualties has been caused by Sunni insurgencies financed and backed by Saudi Arbia and Pakistan. I do not deny my government interference in Iraq and though, I would not support their doings in Iraq that has been largely exaggerated by Bush and friends, I would understand their reasons that why they desire this time to have a more friendlier regime in Iraq and that why they strongly desire not have to struggle with another hostile regime like Saddam backed by U.S once more . In total , I think , American neocons are not searching for peace and stability in middle east but quite on the contrary they strongly support terrorism and extremism and their support of the two countries of Saudi and Pakistan is well indicative of this fact.

My question is that why should not Iran with more democrat government and pro American people have the support of USA instead of Saudi Arabia whose people are extremely hostile towards Americans ?

About Nuclear power, Iran is not developing nuclear weaponry unlike Pakistan with people whose 90 % of suicide bombers have been financed and supported by them.About Nuclear power, Iran is not developing nuclear weaponry unlike Pakistan with people whose 90 % of suicide bombers have been financed and supported by them.

Iran has the second largest population of Jews after Israel unlike countries like Saudi Arabia whose government do not allow religion diversity

    The enemy of my enemy is my friend isn't just an Arab saying. It was taken litterally during the Cold War. Both the Soviet Union and the U.S. went to weird extremes to "create allies." The Soviet Union literally walled their's in and made them prisoners. The U.S. back dictators and in the case of the peaceful democratic country of Nicaragua, tried to take it over using former corrupt soldiers called Contras.

    After the mid 1980s, after the Cold War, the U.S. has switched gears and started to clean up the mess. The first strikes were in Panama, Grenada and the Philipines. In the case of Grenada, the spere of Cuba was shortened. In the cases of Panama and the Philipines, dictators were taken out and peaceful Democracies were put in their place. Panama and the Philipines were the models for Iraq.

    When Bush Sr. came on board, the first Iraq war started. Now this war never really ended and is the same war fought today. He did try to fix Somalia, but this is the second (the first being the car bombing that killed several U.S. troops that happened when the U.S. tried to fix Lebanon in the early 80s) real sign that politically the U.S. would only stomach a few hundred casualties.

    President Clinton took that message of allowing only a few casualties to heart when the U.S. and NATO went after Yugoslavia. The U.S. quickly declared victory and left. In reality, NATO has been "bogged down" in the former Yugoslavia ever since.

    When the current president took office, he wasn't interested in nation building. His whole administration was picked as people that were not nation builders. In the case of the head of the U.S. emergency recovery department called FEMA, the leader was picked just because he was somebody's friend. That lasted 9 months when the twin towers and the Pentagon were hit not to mention the death of those on the planes.

    As with the those attacks and hurricane Katrina, the individuals in government are very isolationists and only care about themselves and refuse to take responsibility unless it makes them look good. The CIA, department of defense and FBI could be tracking the same guy and none of the departments would know it. Homeland Security, yet another agency, was formed to control responsibility and information. So far it resembles the Iraqi government because it doesn't have the leadership or the authority to counter incompetency and infighting.

    It also doesn't help that politicans get most of their information about a varity of information from lobbyists because lobbyists pay for people to listen and major politicans require millions of dollars to get their point across during election time. Of course there is only so much time, so only the major lobbiests get to put their message across. Israel is one of those major lobbiests, but so is Saudi Arabia along with oil companies, China and defense contractors. Meanwhile people in Saudi Arabia are probably arming and helping (if not outright joining) the hostile Sunnis in Iraq and Israel has been selling weapons to China which is a major weapons supplier to Pakistan (where some in the Pakistan government are helping arm the Taliban).

    So that's why the U.S. politicans are taking money from people that are arming the enemies of the U.S. with possible U.S. technology and why it's probably not going to change soon.

    If Bush attacks Iran, it will be the downfall of the United States.

    Iran has a one million strong army and is twice the size and population of Iraq.

    Iran is far stronger than Iraq, simply because Iran has not faced a decade of sanctions, as Iraq did before Bush's ill conceived invasion.

    You are also quite right about Saudi Arabia.

    Perhaps some of the Bush supporters in this forum can explain to me why Bush continually kisses the Saudi Royal family "where the Sun don't shine?"

    Over the last Thanksgiving holiday, Cheney dropped everything to go running off to meet the Saudi's, who warned Cheney that Iraq was his mess, and if they left, the Saudi's would move in to protect their vastly outnumbered Sunni brothers.

    The Saudi royal family literally left Cheney naked and bound with duct tape on the White House steps!

    The problem with this "war on terrorism" is...the Saudi's are actively financing radical Islamic hate schools, throughout the Middle East...schools that teach the youth to grow up hating Americans.

    Until we break this chain of indoctrination, the war on terrorism will never be won.

    Why bush is focusing on Iran is beyond the understanding of most common sense Americans?

    Perhaps it's a matter of perception. The perception is that Iranians are particularly hostile to Americans. This is primarily based on: 1) the overthrow (seemingly backed by the people) of Shah Mohamed Reza Pahlavi, who was very pro-American; 2) Iranian students taking American diplomats hostage, with the support of the government of Ayatollah Khomeini; 3) ongoing rhetoric from Iranian politicians saying things like "America is the great satan" ; and 4) Iran's enrichment of uranium. Let's face it: a country with as much oil and natural gas as Iran doesn't need nuclear power; all they have to do is build oil- or gas-fired generating plants to supply electricity. They're enriching uranium to build nuclear weapons. And they've threatened to use them to wipe Israel off the map. Contrast that with Saudi Arabia. There are still thousands of American citizens working in numerous industries in Saudi Arabia, but no one has taken them hostage (admittedly, there have been attacks on Americans, but most of them were on American soldiers). The government of Saudi Arabia is making no public threats to America, even if many of its citizens hate Americans. While some of Al Queda support in the form of money and personnel came from Saudi Arabia, it appears (at least publicly) to have come from individuals, not the kingdom's government. As for Pakistan, yes, the citizens aren't exactly the best friends to Americans. The U.S. believes it must keep Pakistan as an ally in order to effectively fight against Al Queda and the Taliban next door in Afghanistan. But that means they suck up to the Pakistani government, not the Pakistani people. So as I said previously, a lot of how the U.S. acts is based on perceptions--perceptions which aren't always right. Americans think Iranians are religious nutbars who would prefer to live in a primitive world without any western influences. When I lived in Iran 30 years ago, I found Iranians to be friendly, intelligent, sensitive, creative people, and, like the rest of the world's people, imperfect. I hope the time will come when western nations can again be friends with the great nation of Iran and its people, and we can grow to respect and cherish our similarities and differences without trying to dominate or exploit each other.

    With all due respect, you're President is running his mouth and not painting a very nice picture of Iran right now.

    I know he doesn't have anything to do with most of the Iranians, but I'm sure you realize that an official can't go around talking about the elimination of a US friend and expect not to receive tough treatment.

    Actually, I'm really looking forward to visity Iran and trying out some of your snowboarding slopes. I'm moving to Moscow in Aug. and hope to get down there sometime.

    American politics is a mess, but hopefully you see the point I'm trying to make.

    You are the only Iranian I know who doesn't want the muslim government removed to return to a secular government.

    Iran has the worlds larget natural gas reserves and second largest crude reserves, they will last more than 15-20 years, especially since Iran cannot meet it's production quota due to an antiquated infrastructure. Instead of investing in it's economy Iran has been investing in it's armed services and WMD.

    Irac was an illegal war promoted by the present USA President.

    Be afraid. Be very afraid. George W. Bush, as an old saying

    goes, '...is a loose cannon.' He will not be elected for a third term of office. Vast resources are at his disposal. His last days

    on the world stage remain to be seen. This is where the sane people in his audience sit up and start paying attention. He may

    decide not to go quietly into a possibility of political oblivion.

    No one is against the Iranian people. They are good people who want nothing but the best for themselves.

    Your theocratic government, however, is the problem. Probably as much if not more for you than for anyone else. I can see your freedoms diminishing more and more as the clerics take charge and gain more control. I hope your next elections will be better for you and your people.

    BTW, I'm not a big fan of Saudi Arabia or Pakistan, myself.

    Can't think of a new question? Give it a rest. Americans do not like the Iranian government and do not respect the people.

    *Karen* This is the second time I've answered this girls SAME question. If you bothered to read the first answer you would know that I have family members who ARE Iranian and just visited there last Autumn....in disguise. Nothing has changed over there. The Iranians will tell you they disapprove of their government but yet they do NOTHING to change it or to help themselves. You may call me whatever little kid names you like. But I think I probably know a little more about the people than you do....fool!

    *Add*: Karen has lived all over the world and knows more people than I ever will? Ok....and? I do not need to tell you a bunch of lies to make myself feel better. I was giving my OPINION, if you don't like it, too bad. You feel differently, fine answer the question instead of attacking me. Maybe you are an Iranian, you certainly don't act like an American. BTW: My opinion is.....you are a fool!
