Oon Yaroo, you mean "Back when the USA behaved like ADAM and had some Aberoo," Ever since they betrayed the late Shah, backed khomeini and keep extremists in power in Iran, the USA has never looked so filthy, this neocolonialism harms America more than its allies.

2300 soldiers isn't such a big exercise.
