    Iran's problems with the United States started decades ago. They allowed Britain to contract drilling operations for oil and then Britain committed fraud on their record-keeping. This led to a hostile environment between the two countries.

    And in the usual United States fashion, they sided with Britain. They've been at odds ever since.

    It was Britain's fault that Iran became an opposition nation (just as Britain is the cause of so many other problems in history - WW2, WW2, Israeli/Palestinian Conflict, etc).

    And, of course, the power-hungry bully of the world who serves Israel as its master - the United States couldn't stay out of it.

  • They invaded our embassy and help our people captive for a year....they attacked the USS Cole. They have openly funded terrorism against us. They were responsible for the people who behead Christians in Syria.....shall I go on?

    Well, they kidnapped 52 Americans and held them hostage for 444 days for one. That was not very nice. And then they've used their satellite Shiite militia group, Hezbollah, attack the US Embassy in Lebanon which resulted in 63 deaths, including 17 Americans. They've also continually sent arms to enemies of ally, Israel, via various satellite terrorist militia groups to attack Israel. We know this, as the Israeli's have stopped some of the arms shipments and the ships came from Iran, and were filled with rockets and bombs and were on their way to places like Syria and Lebanon, and the Iranian leaders have repeatedly said over the years that they wanted to wipe Israel off the map and from the pages of history.

    Some of you have obviously forgotten that they invaded our embassy and held our personnel hostage for over a year until Ronald Reagan freed them shortly aftr the election. Or you have forgotten the numerous threats they have made to nuke America. I could go on and make this a lengthy answer although I won't. They hate us.

    Iran cyberattacked US from underground Netanz, took our embassy hostage and has been chanting "Death to America" since the 1980s. Iran's just a front for Hezbollah.

    Depends how far back you want to go.

    You know all about the problems with the Ottoman Empire 800 years ago, right ?

    Have you read about the CIA/MI5 coup ?

    The 1911 bombing of the US Consulate at Arg e Tabriz.

    But if you want the simplest (and probably wrong) explanation, it is that Iran was a focus for Cold War Pressure with the Soviet Union.

    You can pick a range of time periods and there's apparent justification. But it's all been going on far too long to try and sort out moral authority here.
