It has been used so often one can finish the speaker’s sentence. It was started by the IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic officials, quickly picked up by their overseas little helpers and eventually over time seeped into the general population.
It went something like this, because during the past two hundred years Iran has not invaded another country the IRR’s development of “peaceful” nuke program and its long range missile systems are no threat to peace and stability of the region.
But the recent seizure of an Iranian ship by the Yemeni patrol boats in the Red Sea carrying anti-tank shells and five Iranian “instructors” destined to reach Yemeni Zaidi rebels who are froma branch of Shiism, is only the latest proof to the contrary.
Prior to the Yemeni seizure there was the January 2002 seizure of the Karine-A in the same Red Sea. In that seizure the ship was loaded with fifteen million dollars worth of Iranian armament headed to Palestine. There has been the supplying of the Mughtada Al-Sadr’s Mahdi Army of cutthroats in Iraq and Gulbuddin Hekmatyar’s band of murderers in Afghanistan.
And of course the Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon are well known to be getting their funding, weapons, training and instructors from IRR. In fact the Hezbollah terrorist mastermind Imad Mughniyah, aka, Haj Rezvan, who was killed in a 2008 car bombing in Syria, held a high rank in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps with an Iranian wife to boot. The same relationship exists between the IRR and Hamas terrorist organization.
So the two hundred year claim although only technically true in the sense that during the past thirty years IRR has not send uniformed troops invading another country, in practical terms it is not. And the semi-stealth invader is on track to realize its nuke goal which in turn will provide a nuclear umbrella for all its terrorist proxies everywhere.
