if by the frequent references to "him" you mean Mahmoud Ahmadinejad I don't think anyone here is defending him. Also, it would be wise to remember that, unlike our president, the president of Iran doesn't actually possess any military power so any threats coming from him are largely impotent.
I posted about the epidemic of suicides plaguing our troops. Lets focus on that and stop derailing this into a debate about sins of Iran versus sins of the United States. Both governments have their corruption and I think everyone here recognizes that.
