Stuff like this just boggles my mind. Seriously... I can't wrap my head around the thought process of those people. Whatever country decides that we need to invade Iran, I'll be behind them 100%.

I'm no expert, buuut you should probably read more than 8 lines of text before forming an opinion like that.

I'm sorry, hasn't Iraq proven that invading a country whose ruler is a tyrant does not result in their actual liberation and well being? I'm an Arab and most of my people across the various Arab countries believe that Iraq would've been better off living the stable orderly lives under Saddam's solid rule.  
The country was sentenced to slowly die in shit drenched piss when the US army decided to play god.

If this is all the basis you need for deciding to invade an entire country then I'm going to go ahead and assume you are (at least mentally) somewhere between 12 and 16. Hopefully in a few years you'll mature enough to look back on this and laugh at your own ignorance.

Sentencing a man to death for that kind of stuff is inexcusable. It makes the people running that country as bad as a cold blooded serial killer. I'm sorry, but fuck them, may they die of a horrible affliction that plagues them for years.

Oh, and I read the other articles they linked to as well, so I'm sure there were a little more than 8 lines of text ;)

Well alright then, Mr. genius! How about you provide me with the logic behind sentencing the man to death? I mean with such a witty remark, surely you are capable of providing me with an argument that defends the act of killing a man over such pity a reason.

Unless, of course, that remark is the limit of your intelligence.

#10 Posted by L44 (559 posts) -

wow this is stupid, you hear about alot of people being sentenced for life and stuff when they never did anything, but you dont see people saying you should invade a country over it.

#11 Posted by coakroach (2490 posts) -

If you're going to invade anyone based off the way they mistreat their civilian population you might want to start with North Korea, what with the whole famine/brainwashing/death camp thing.

And while i'm not going to say whether or not the incident is equally terrible in terms of violating basic human rights, you might want to look at some other places that abuse their death penalty.

@L44: @coakroach: But I read this one, and this one pissed me off. Hence my post.

And maybe we should get pissed off about things like this more often.

#13 Posted by TobbRobb (4639 posts) -

This thread is not inflammatory or offensive in the least. There is a lot of discussion value here, I can almost taste it.

Seriously dude? "someone-invade-iran-please", I just don't have any words.

Yes that sentence was unfair, no it's not a reason to invade a country. Shit, good ol' US and A have had their fair share of unfair death sentences. That is the fault of a few higher ups, don't punish the innocent people living there for it.

You're right there, but saying there should an invasion is being completely irrational.

I was in an irrational state of mind. It happens. Surely I'm not the first (or the last).

I have a book for you to read. It's called "God is not Great." At least so far as I've read, it pretty much sums up my feelings and the reason behind such atrocities pretty nicely.

Have you ever considered the role of foreign policy adviser for the US government? You're clearly wasting your talents here.

#18 Posted by AlisterCat (5559 posts) -

Based on that logic, the amount of injustice in America, or any country warrants an invasion.

I think it's high time the world's most powerful country, Canada (obviously), took some starch outta that annoying wart on our ass.

...hmm, we might need to borrow some of your military though if that's cool.

Yes! Let's kill thousands of innocent civilians just because an undemocratic regime executes someone...

#24 Posted by Zero_ (1973 posts) -

Yeeeeah, let's not have the US or anyone else invade Iran or anyone else. Yes, it's a mess over there but let them sort out their mess. The last thing any country needs is another country jumping in and telling them how they should be run. It's a sad reality.

Obama authorized the targeted murder of an American citizen, Anwar Al-Awlaki.

Wouldn't it be piss drenched shit? You can't really drench something in shit unless it's one of those really watery ones, but even then you'd just have an amalgamation of shit and piss, not piss drenched in shit.

#27 Posted by GoofyGoober (937 posts) -

Since it pisses YOU off so much, why dont YOU go and invade them. Come on, go ahead and stand up for whats obviously "Right"

#28 Posted by amir90 (2156 posts) -

WTF is wrong with you?

Omg lets invade the us, their citizens are losing more rights everyday.
Their goverment just made it legal to arrest anyone and hold them in contempt forever without trial, holy shit!
they cannot protest where they want, and when they do protest, they get peppers prayed and beaten by their police officers.

Please, can Americans and the us start fixing their own damn country, because wars like these, affect a lot more then just you and X enemy.

well according to the he was spreading hatred around the world or something like that which goes against Islam. In a Deeply religious country that is lead by a dictator it is actually quite obvious that he might sentence a man to death for doing something that violates their religious law. Now i dont agree with this at all.

Also reading to how he was tortured to get a statement out of him it kinda reminds me of Guantanamo bay... food for thought.

Obama authorized the targeted murder of an American citizen, Anwar Al-Awlaki.

To be fair to President Obama's decision, Anwar Al-Awlaki did renounce his US citizenship and declared war on the US in public statements in Yemen. Historically, countries have been able to kill former citizens who have formally renounced citizenship and then gone over to an enemy's side, as they are legally not considered citizens. President Obama himself has maintained that the government does not have the authority to kill a US citizen without trial and that this was not a case of that. Anwar Al-Awlaki no longer considered himself a US citizen, and so, neither did the law.

When the weapons manufacturers and other military contractors feel they want some more money the US will invade Iran. American politicians act for the benefit of corporations.

Wait so your solution to stopping a man being sentenced to death is to invade a country leading to hundreds of thousands of people being killed and the country and region maybe rendered permanently unstable? I'd take another five minutes to think about this before you start the carpet bombing.

#38 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3087 posts) -

Pretty much every country has done something equally bad or worse than that. Please find another source of outrage before you start demanding a war.

Check out President Obama's upcoming State of the Union address to see if that's really true.

I believe you are fortunately mistaken, led more by what "feels" right and what is hip to say in online message boards than what actually is reality.

#42 Edited by PenguinDust (12512 posts) -

Join Amnesty International, write your congressman or other political leadership, start a movement to bring about awareness of this and similar cases. Don't send more kids to die in an unnecessary war, sacrificing thousands upon thousands of civilian lives, destroying an irreplaceable historical civilization, costing billions we don't have, and further dividing the world community. Don't do these things again.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

#43 Posted by Andorski (5308 posts) -

To fix a country's problems, an invasion must occur. The OP might as well say, "I'm an American in the middle of high school."

#46 Edited by TruthTellah (9000 posts) -

Duders, please read the OP's replies in this thread before posting more.

He has already acknowledged that his original statement was irrational and simply an emotional response to something he saw as unjust. We all say stupid things sometimes, and this was clearly one of those times for him. We really don't need to pile on and prolong the life of this thread. I'm not saying OP is right or even a great guy, but from what I've read, no one here is seriously arguing that Iran should be invaded. It's simply aggravation regarding current events expressed in a poor way.

No that is not my solution. It was merely an extreme expression of my anger at the injustice. You know, kind of like the extreme reaction that involves killing an innocent human being.

#50 Posted by StalkingTurnip (150 posts) -

First, the OP was just riled up from seeing something awful and was speaking hyperbolic . However, it should not have been a surprise. It is a theocratic dictatorship. Killing people who violate your religious laws is the point. Secondly, the United States of America and Iran are not comparable in any way shape or form. In America, you can speak your mind and i dont know belive whatever you want without being stoned to death. Trying to use a poorly done police investigation and pepper gassing people to actually shooting people who disagree with you is kind of stupid. Did Uncle Sam rape you new born puppy right in front of your eyes or something?
