And Cheney was right. If we had kept Syria and Iran in line, there wouldn’t have been so many terrorists supported by those regimes coming in to Iraq to kill our soldiers.

The younger people of Iran want more freedom. If and we hope WHEN they can overthrow the clerics they will not be as willing or ready to send large amounts of money to other countries. With a slight nudge and positive support from the outside world, Iran has a very good chance of falling from within but first we need a REAL President with REAL b-lls to lead the way and stop kissing Muzzie ass-s!

Or supporting the Taliban to kill us in Afghanistan.

Yes but look at it this way. Many of the radical Muslims died for Allah in Iraq. And the young people in Iran are (relatively) liberal. It’s only a matter of time before everyone behind the ‘79 Revolution would die. Once that happens, Iran will become one of the most free and secular countries in the Middle East, almost like Turkey although they’re becoming more Islamist recently.

Maybe the US could have hacked up Syria but Iran is too big and too populous.
As we saw, we went in with a small footprint in Iraq, won the war and lost the peace as things got out of control.

The post was plan was foolhardy. We paid a lot for Rumsfeld’s light footprint vision.
