"And how do you know Stuxnet was a USA creation?"
The US govt did nothing to deny the NY Times report, and in fact took credit for it.
"Iran which only wants to enrich uranium for innocent "research purposes" - the research being "how big a bomb can we build?"
If you have definite proof that Iran is making a "bomb", then show it to the US and the IAEA, because so far they don't have proof.
"when the **** hits the fan, who do you think everyone is going to be trying to hide behind in order to have their butts saved? Iran or the USA?"
When the shit comes from the US as is most likely the case, don't look to them to save you.
"Just look at 20th century history in China to decide if you really want them to be the world's superpower."
Since WW2 China has only been involved in 2 major wars involving other countries, Korean and Vietnam. The former as a result of US led invasion of N Korea, and the latter as a result of US led attempts to conquer N Vietnam.
It has also been involved in one or two minor border skirmishes with India, Vietnam and the USSR/Russia.
Since the death of Chairman Mao and the subsequent opening up of the economy, China hasn't been involved in any wars or lent support to whatever communist "insurgencies" that remain in around the world.
In contrast the US has invaded or tried to invade or has unleashed major military action on:
- N Korea (and threatened to use nuclear weapons on China for daring to support the North)
- Dominican Republic (on the side of a military regime which deposed a democratically elected leader)
- Laos (between 1964 and 1973, US bombers dropped more ordnance on Laos in this period than was dropped during the whole of the WW2. This is in a country just over half the size of California.)
- Iraq (again)
And the US has a shameful record of covertly or otherwise of deposing democratically elected or popular leaders who are "too independent" (ie doesn't do what the US tells them to do) and replacing them with often brutal military dictatorships or despots:
Nicaragua 1980s, trafficking arms to Iran and using proceeds to fund the Sandinista terrorists, trafficking drugs via Manuel Noriega (dictator of Panama, subsequently abducted by the US and convicted for drugs trafficking) and using proceeds to fund the Sandinista terrorists who wanted to overthrow a democratically elected government.
Dictatorships or authoritarian regimes that even China doesn't support are eagerly propped up by the US:
South America, all the right-wing military dictatorships
Africa, all the resource-rich regimes, plus Egypt before the overthrow of Mubarak
Middle East, all the oil-rich authoritarian monarchies
Central Asia, all the oil-rich dictatorships
Asia - Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan, S Korea all had military dictatorships fully supported by the US until popular action replaced them with more or less functioning democracies.
With China you get what it says on the packet - they will not interfere in other countries internal affairs and they don't.
With the US they say they're fully committed to freedom of speech, self-determination, human rights, rule of law etc, except when they're not, which from the above list of examples is a lot of the time.
