Who is Threatening Who?

The United States ambassador to the IAEA Gregory Schulte said yesterday,

Iran, rather than threatening the world, should listen to the world and take steps to regain its confidence.
I suspect that Iran feels the same about the United States. The United States has been a threat to Iran for a long time. In 1953, the CIA organized the overthrow of the democratically-elected government of Iran. The United States encouraged Iraq to invade Iran in 1980. In 1988, an American warship stationed in the Gulf shot down an Iranian airbus killing two hundred and ninety-nine passengers were killed, many of them women and children. Some Americans are talking about an invasion of Iran.

Rather than threatening Iran, the United States should listen to the pain in the hearts of the Iranian people, and take steps to regain their confidence.
