Quite. The massive US naval base is the difference. The US has been propping up that particular dictatorship for years.

You write "when one discusses the IBC it must be pointed out that the toll provided by them is extremely conservative, covering only direct violent killings,"

You should have of course added " and reported by English language press".

Previous studies have shown that the press normally only manages to cover about 10% of casualties.

Then there is the fact that regardless of how many 'direct' kills there were, as an illegal war of aggression, those who started it: Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Blair bear direct responsibility for all deaths, as per Nuremberg which called the waging of aggressive war "essentially an evil initiate a war of not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."

Sorry can't agree. This has Israel written all over it. Also, it appears that in the sealed indictment it's Hezbollah and Iran that are directly blamed. Syria doesn't enter this one.

What planet are you living on? The America on this planet could never be described as a "nation that stands up for human rights, freedom and democracy ..."

That's what they profess they do. Their actions reflect an entirely different reality.

If Israel does launch a nuclear attack on Iran, then any and all Israelis immediately become terrorists and targets.

This 'Al Qaeda' claim is most probably from one of the US Special Operations teams in Yemen, posing as a 'counter-gang'. Typical counter-ínsurgency warfare as described by Sir Frank Kitson. You train your own gang, and get them out committing massacres which you then claim are the faction you wish to discredit or provide proof of existence...
