Oh boy Pat, if only we had elected you president, terrorists the world over would have been appeased.
We would have stopped funding Israel, ignored the Taliban, left Iraq for Uday and Qusay, not bothered to put a halt to nuclear materials being shipped to Libya, and sat down for face to face meetings with Iran.
The world would be so much safer.
The world would be safer if the US weren't such an aggressive, expansionist, colonizing nation.
As to the poor put upon Iranians, consider the record.
In the last 27 years the United States
-- launched air strikes on Libya
-- invaded Grenada
--put Marines in Lebanon
--run air strikes in the Bekaa Valley and Chouf Mountains
-- launched Desert Storm
--put troops into Somalia
-- fired cruise missiles into Sudan
--intervened in Bosnia
--conducted bombing strikes on Iraq
--launched a 78-day bombing campaign against Serbia
--put troops into Kosovo
--moved NATO into Poland
--established U.S. bases in former provinces of Russia's
--invaded Afghanistan and Iraq
And in this same quarter century Iran has invaded not one neighbor and fought but one war: an 8-year war with Iraq where she was the victim of aggression.
