Evidently the President, and his Democrat cohorts have forgotten the American hostages taken during the Carter years, and held for 444 days. There is no reason to ever recognize Iran, or its Heinous Leadership, not ever. The sanction should remain in place until every one of our American hostages are dead from old age. The Democrats have gone soft, or lost their collective minds.

Perhaps... after the fact, but prior you were ringing out your usual cadre of insults insisting you were right.

And perhaps, when you get a clue here, you might be apologetic again.

there would have not been sanctions if not for this President.

The last diplomatic meeting with Iran was in 1980 when Republican Ronald Reagan furnished a ransom of missiles to Iran in exchange for those hostages.

Iran-Contra Criminal Conspiracy

1. Illegally selling military arms to the terrorist-state
Iran, which was supporting Islamic militants who
captured and held Americans hostage in Lebanon,
from 1981 to 1986.

2. Selling Hawk missiles and military spare parts to
Iran in exchange for the release of American hostages
by Iranian-supported Islamic militants.

3. Lying to Congress and the American people about
"trading arms for hostages" with Iran.

4. Selling missiles and military equipment through a
private company to Iran and using the profits from
these missiles sales to illegally fund a guerrilla
war in Central America.

5. Illegally using the CIA and Defense Department to
support the Nicaraguan Contras, which Congress
had banned from giving such support.

the Republicans have never supported and collaborated with the United Nations especially after calling bullshyt on Bush's Iraq invasion..

You really can't make a case it was a republican administration's effort to work with the members of the UN security council in drafting the current sanctions, can you?..President Obama posed the concept and brought together the council.for these current sanctions.

That's a breath of fresh air considering the disaster the republican administration was on foreign affairs and the succession of boo boos.......... in spite of the Saudi's attacking NYC, the Bush administration managed to hold onto their Saudi business partners and diplomatic relations. Never mind the Saudis providing the funding and intelligence for the attacks on NYC, and Washington DC by 13 of their country men.

The Sanctions were put ion when the Muslims stole the Embassy under Carters nose, because he wouldn't allow the Marines to have loaded guns. We never had a President that wanted to kiss up to the Iraqi's before Obama. We won't let him get away with it. Even Democrats will join Republicans to put the sanctions back in place.

there were no sanctions prior to Obama convincing our UN Allies to forge a plan of action. The last diplomatic discussion with Iran involved Reagan providing Iran missiles and arms for the release of the hostages that militant extremist used to kill US Marines in Lebanon
