Completely false, Whabbism has infested almost all Arab nations in the middle east. Just because your interpreation of the stability of the social climate in Iran is that Shi'Ites (proper spelling of their sect there) that does not mean that all terrorists are Sunni's. Quite the opposite....As well on the addition to your second rebutle being that Iran does not have the militaristic background in ICBM's to reach mainland America, for clarification a missle launch is not the only way to delever a nuclear payload to a destination. In the former Soviet Union there are many nuclear warheads that can if wanted to fit into a suitcase, and CARRIED to their destination which I am sure Islamic Fundamentalists would be dying (no pun intended) to do to reach their 40 virgins in paradise and the afterlife. Along with all the oil dynasties that have a stranglehold on the middle east, which much of the oil barons pouring money into terror organizations such as Al Queda, Taliban etc, it would not be a far reach into their very deep pockets to purchase one of these suitcase nukes. But I digress on top of both of these points, the whole point of this arguement is not to only protect America's safety, but to ensure our democratic ideals. We are a a beacon of hope to those oppressed all across the world, with ideals such as freedom of speech, press, and religion, democracy, liberty, and the god given right to the pursuit of happiness. America would not be such a great country as it is, if we let such things as the supposed false "democracy" in Iran be uphold with such a shame to our system government. We have a resonsibility to protect those who cannot.
By the way just for clarification in treating me like im a sixth grader who knows nothing about militant Islam...the Sunni's and Shi'ites have been at war for an actual reason. When the prophet Muhammed died, there was a conflict between opposing sides in Islam. One side believed that only people of a direct blood line to Mohammed should be able to become the new Caliphate and leader of Islam, these followers became to be known as Sunni's. The opposing side believed that any people who have been approved by the Islamic foundations should be able to become the new Caliphate, these followers became to be known as Shi'ites. Since the split there has been much blood shed, with often the stronger factions at the time spilling the blood of the weaker faction. In Iraq for instance Sadam Hussein was a Sunni and therefor much Shi'ite blood was shed, however when the US occupation force took over the power was shifted and many innocent Sunni's were being murdered. While it is true that more militant Islams are from the Sunni background, there are plenty of terrorist organizations that have ties to Shi'Ite backgrounds as well.
