    You think they just sit there and hope for the best?

    consider what has happened.

    -They purchase 12 guided missiles from ukraine
    -They push their nuclear program
    -They suddenly deploys new missiles (help from North korea, Russia, China)
    -They signed common front treaty with Syria
    -They signed military agreement with Shiah faction in Iraq
    -They signed nuclear agreement with Russia and upgrade their submarines

    etc etc..

    all these happens in the past 2 years.

      Not sure what you mean.. but a nice summary.

      I was merely pointing out that if the Bush Doctrine is one which states that it is legitimate to pre-emptively attack a foreign nation because of a perceived military threat regardless of international law, than this is a dangerous precedent to set and that Iran can make a strong case that the US is an imminent threat (Of course, I hope they will not attack us).
