Iran: The Ballistics of Conflict Portends the Next Missile Crisis!

Persian history is mauled with conflict, internal battles both in political and religious conflicts and the influences of external interests.

It is as to ambiguity and how it relates in greater context however, as to Bruce individually, I’ll only say that it’s his life and to the extent his actions don’t impale the order of another’s, he’s free to express his liberty as he chooses. As to whether he has that liberty, well, I’ll leave that decision to you.
