The last time Iran started a war.Submitted by SONICMASD on Thu, 09/15/2011 - 12:26
A lot of talk has been going on surrounding RP and his position on Iran.
Stossel made some great points while defending RP on O'Reilly Factor (Caution - Bill is the biggest moron ever in this video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqZyzjsUx7g> Jump to 03m 00s for the Iran talk.
I think that telling people that Iran has not started a war in 200 years is a great point to make while supporting this position. The US can't even go 2 years, let alone 200 - so which country is really the greater danger to mankind?
Anyways, it got me thinking - When exactly was this war that Iran started 200 years ago? Because if I make this point I need to be able to back it up.
So after much research I believe that the answer is: 1826 during the 4th Russo-Persian War. If anyone finds an error in this or a more recent war that Iran started please post.
