Post #306 - Motes and Logs
The following chart is not perfectly done. It has no place in it for the many alleged instances of cross-border meddling, links to terrorist attacks (in all directions, by several different states and non-state actors) and so forth. It may let Iran off a bit easy, if some of those allegations prove to be accurate.
That having been said, the basic truth of the content can scarcely be denied. Iran has been much less of an active agent in geo-politics than the United States, especially where the Middle East is concerned, even allowing for the difference in size and population. The difference, in terms of scope and scale, is stunning.
