This POTUS B****** is now giving priceless relics to terrorist scum who murder Christians. That’s Hussein’s MO.

I don’t want to be friends with Iran. I want to be their worst enemy and then do something about it.

We owe them big time for letting them murder our people and we never did anything about it.

So we prop up this regime, but Mubarak and Kadafi had to go?

At least Obama didn’t give him an Ipod with his speeches on it.

remind me again who in Iran signs the death warrant when they hang homosexuals?

remind me again when our Christian citizen being held in Iranian jail is being released as a “special gift”?

remind me again who made those IED’s that killed our troops in Iraq?

Since this relic predates Islam, it will be melted down so not remnant of Persian ascendancy remains.

This sends a curious message, but I doubt Obama’s State Dept had the sense to intend anything more subtle than “look, we’re giving you back something we stole, as a reminder of why you hate us.” I guess another iPod with Obama’s greatest capitulations was voted down.

Pre-Islamic artifacts are not exactly at the top of the interest list for Islamists. Will Iranians see this as an attempt to divide and conquer by appealing to (relatively) secular interests versus fundamentalists and Revolutionary Guard hardliners? Or does an evocation of the Persian Empire imply US acceptance of Iranian regional hegemony?

He gave back a bust of Churchill to England. Next thing you know he’ll be giving away the keys to the WH... oh, wait... never mind. He should stick to giving away baskets of DVDs of his most fabulous moments.

Here’s one more sign of a thaw in U.S.-Iranian relations: A 2,700-year-old silver drinking cup, looted from a cave in Iran and seized by U.S. Customs officials a decade ago, was returned to Iran this week. Its value is estimated at a million dollars or more.

The ceremonial drinking vessel from the 7th century B.C., cast in the shape of a winged griffin, has been sitting in a warehouse in New York for years. And for years, U.S. officials have been saying they couldn’t return it to Iran until relations between Washington and Tehran were normalized. “This piece can’t go back,” the New York Post quoted James McAndrew, senior special agent in charge of cultural property for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as saying in 2010.

On Wednesday, the piece went back.

“It is considered the premier griffin of antiquity, a gift of the Iranian people to the world, and the United States is pleased to return it to the people of Iran,” the U.S. State Department said.

Leftwing statists hate their own countrymen with whom they happen to have policy differences far, far more than they do foreign peoples who wish us dead.

Because those foreign enemies pose no immediate threat to their political power.

Its sick, but indicative of tyrants down through the ages.

Obama is a pure leftwing statist.

The muslims will want to destroy it as it came from the Persian culture before they invaded it.

Obama probably knows it will be destroyed.

Seized by customs officials in 2003, why the hell wasn’t it sold and the proceeds used to offset legal claims against Iran?

Obviously non-islamic. Some sort of graven image, quick get a hammer and pound it flat. Might be some way to use the silver to make switches for suicide belts. Thanks a lot Obama.
