As for the Shia Sunni conflict can you remind us please which branch of Islam Norway belongs to?
If you admit that the threats are just that - threats - and you agree (as I suspect you do) that Iran is never going to actually do that, then we can dispense with that as a point of discussion.
There’s plenty of shit that Tehran gets up to which they probably shouldn’t without needing to add hollow and impotent threats of something they’re never going to do to the mix.
As for the Norway point, I can only conclude you’ve hugely misinterpreted my point (though you’ll never admit it). Nevertheless I’ll explain it in more detail (even though we both know you’re just being a bit of a dick about this).
Iran and Saudi Arabia fucking hate each other, and almost everything that happens around that region is part of that fight. The two branches of Islam have been fighting for centuries and frankly should be left to fuck themselves up. That part of the world isn’t worth one drop of blood from a westerner or anyone else and never had been; it’s their fight, let them have it.
Places like Norway don’t experience it because those able to move away from the dogmatic, theocratic cesspits that those governments have become are able to realise that the whole thing isn’t worth a gnats piss and life is for living, not hating.
We go around sticking our noses into this shit and it never ends well for us. They don’t want us there, leave them to their never-ending cycle of idiocy. Maybe one day they’ll wake up, maybe not, but I have no desire to see us waste lives and money and goodwill in a place that doesn’t give a fuck about us and never has.
