    I don't know what a bugbear is, but I know what Iran is and so does our government and the normal people who live there. Iran brings it's own troubles on itself by meddling in affairs that don't concern it. Israel does not care for Iran and wouldn't acknowledge it's existence if Iran kept to itself.

    American 'meddling' has been due to direct conflicts of it's own interests and, what I suspect you're alluding to, due to the Cold War.

    Iran's attack on U.S. Servicemen in Saudi Arabia was not a defensive action, or an act of protecting a resource, it was a petulant act of vengeance.

    You must have me mistaken with someone else, I'm not losing any sleep. I can simply recognize a situation and the proper context of it without interjecting my own emotions into it.

    they are good enemies for a 2nd level party. :)

    Now let me save you some time arguing with Sassy.

    in Sassy's eyes ......

    U.S. = the Bad guys who rape defenseless countries for their resources.

    Terrorist = misunderstood peace lovers just trying to protect themselves.

    Hey look, it's a Persian Warlord...:eek:

    Wow, I had no idea a bugbear really was something. I thought it was a 'figger' of speech.

    It is also used in place of the word bogeyman by people who want to sound sophisticated ..... Sassy was just being Sassy.

    I agree I would rather Israel not be the ones to act. I would hope the world reacts and handles the situation of stopping Iran from developing Nuclear weapons. My only point is if the world does not stop Iran Israel will. They have the most to lose by inaction.

    By the same token, couldn't I respond "Heavens to Murgatroyd , it's a Persian Warlord, a veritable existential threat to the people of the United States. Take us to DEFCON 1 and scramble the bombers." Exit stage left and leave the next administration to deal with the fallout.

    Hey I already said I think it's going to take someone more competent than this admin to handle it...

    I don't favor laying a wallop on Iran, even if they deserve it.
