Unrequited War - Iran's (Unanswered) 26 Year War Against AmericaTopics: Iran
Is there any wonder why Iran believes that it can continue unimpeded and immune from repercussions from its actions - given its long history of lies, deception, cheat, and attacks against the U.S., all while we have done nothing more than sat back and take it?
From the Washington Times: Casey cites Iran hand in attacks by Iraqi Shi'ites.

Ten years ago today [June 25], acting under direct orders from senior Iranian government leaders, the Saudi Hezbollah detonated a 25,000-pound TNT bomb that killed 19 U.S. airmen in their dormitory at Khobar Towers in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. The blast wave destroyed Building 131 and grievously wounded hundreds of additional Air Force personnel. It also killed an unknown number of Saudi civilians in a nearby park.From CNN in May 2003: Iran responsible for 1983 Marine barracks bombing, judge rules.

Meanwhile, from CNN: No quick Iranian reply on nuclear offer.
Iran and the world's leading industrialized democracies staked out conflicting positions Thursday on when Tehran should respond to a U.N. proposal concerning the country's nuclear program.When is the American public going to stand up and say enough is enough - we're not going to play this game anymore, especially while Iran stalls, cheats, lies, and deceives the West as it races to the development of nuclear weapons?
The Western powers said Thursday they expected Iran's response to come by Wednesday, when the European Union's foreign minister, Javier Solana, and Iran's nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, meet, The Associated Press reported.
But hours after that announcement, Iran's foreign minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, said Tehran would not complete its review of the U.N. offer until August.
Mottaki's comments are in line with those made earlier by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who said he did not plan to respond to the U.N. proposal until August 22.
