  •  You did not mention Iranian Air Flight 655 (0+ / 0-)

    which the USS Vicennes  shot down, killing 290 civilians.  The naval vessel was in Iranian waters at the time:

    Now, airliner shoot-downs are not unheard of:

    but imagine if a similar action was perpetrated by Iran against the US?  (no false equivalency comparing this to the Beirut incident, please http://en.wikipedia.org/...)

    The Iranians have been eager for rapprochement, doing such things as being a conduit for the US to the Northern Alliance, which was wary of the US having been burned before and turning over al Qaeda operatives fleeing Tora Bora.  Their reward?  The US funded MEK.

    A warming in relations should be welcomed by everyone if it leads to peace and stability in the region
