The reason to stop them is because they're an adversary to the US, teamed up with other US adversaries, and have half the worlds oil supply go through the Strait of Hormuz on their watch.
Iran is looking out for its own geopolitical interests, so is China, so is Russia. But for some reason when the US does the same you see spergs on /pol/ act like it's crazy and wrong. The US geopolitical interests in the Middle East are not going anywhere any time soon, and they're largely not about Israel either. The USD being world reserve depends on the US military strength keeping it propped up, guarding global shipping and keeping theocratic regimes from cucking US allies is part of why the US is a superpower. People don't just side with the US for no reason, they get something in return.>yes countries that benefit from US imperialism want to keep the river of blood flowing, that doesn't mean we have to give a shit about them>imperialism
Horseshoe theory in action.
You sound like antifa now. This is a stupid buzzword that doesn't mean what you think it means. Those arab countries are glad to have the US on their side.
Funny how it's only 'imperialism' when it's the US doing it, but when it's Russia, China, Iran, or anyone who is against the US then it's considered good. >Iran wants nukes for a simple and quite reasonable purpose: to stop countries like ours from wantonly attacking them
Iran wants nukes because it wants to dominate the region with its own 'imperialist' ambitions and nukes mean it can shove people around without as much fear. We've already seen what happens when the US is asleep at the wheel and a tin pot regime gets nukes with North Korea. NK now routinely threatens to nuke its neighbors, Japan, SK, and pretends it will nuke the US too. These are not small problems. And again, when the NK regime collapses you'll see an even worse situation as nukes fall into the hands of a decaying and worried gaggle of sychophants.
