To an Iranian (or any other Middle East country that the US has bombed/occupied and meddled in their government? 
I respect the US soldiers that join the military because they're intentions are to defend freedom and all that but the government uses them as disposable heroes for their shenanigans.

Sure. Iran lists us as terrorists. 
 

They also fuck sheep and live in mud huts after spending the same amount of time on earth as us.

I don't think so, but I could certainly understand why a bunch of middle easterners would.

I'm sure middle eastern Muslims believe so. They are brainwashed from day 1 to believe we are evil. Same with North Koreans. Brainwashed.

The US has meddled in the past in countries it had no right to, and caused massive destabilisation of the Middle East (often intentionally) resulting in regimes and resistance groups which have caused countless deaths.

On this occasion, I fully agree with Trump's decision and believe he made the correct call. Soleimani was a true terrorist in the Western definition of it. A good measure of that, whatever you think of the 'intelligence' which justified the assassination, is simply to look at the groups who are most outraged at the General's death. Primarily being extremist, barbaric groups who would like to see the destruction of western democracy.

During WW2, Germany thought the US was bad. 
 

in Star Wars, the rebels would be considered bad by other  

 

during the revolutionary war, the colonies where the terrorists

 

terrorists is defined by sides and by the winning side.

Really? You think they're brainwashed? After seeing your country destroyed and pillaged and your relatives blown up by drones you think they're brainwashed? Or maybe the people of the US are?

Here is an easy way to figure it out 

mid given the chance... how many Iranians would accept a green card to come live and work in the us. 

do you think they would want to live in a terrorist state? 
 

no. They know what it's like to live in a terrorist state and that's why they want to leave. 
 

Now reverse it. How many Americans want to move to Iran today?

Yes. The US military and government is the largest and most violent terrorist organization in the history of humanity.

This should be clear to any unbiased observer.

There are many Iranians that have fled and are now my neighbours. 
I have a pretty good idea of how they feel 

they might not like the USA. But there is a reason they fled Iran and moved to North America.

i honestly wish i could look at this with clear eyes. i do know that there are a lot of very bad people in the middle east. they are a culture that is 200, 300, 400 + years behind the rest of the world in many aspects. 

but i do think we meddle where maybe we shouldn't. there is a lot that almost nobody knows. so it's difficult to comment on this stuff with any authority.

looking at this on a very basic level, how many us citizens are fleeing their home country compared to the rest of the world. 

We are far from perfect. but we are doing something right.

Absolutely hands down one of the most dumbfuck statements ever on here and that's saying something.
