Hey Jacques, Have you ever heard of the Lesser of Two Evils? Yep, in WWII we supported the Soviet Union. And yes, in the early 1970 we supported the Shah of Iran. Do you really think things have improved in Iran since the Shah left?<quoted text>
1.Fool. Jimmy Carter did NOT throw the Shah under the bus. The stupid shah did that all by his lonesome. And you blame the hostage-taking on Carter? What is wrong with you? Reagan came to the rescue, armed the Ayatolahs AND the contras all in one to "heroically" rescue the hostages. You are so clueless on things political;
2. Clinton? The Lewinski thing, which you can't let go of because you are fascinated with Clinton's penis, did not cost $1.5 trillion, 6,000 US lives and ruination of two countries' infrasctructures. You know who I'm talking about, right? Clinton was one of your best presidents;
3. John Kerry is a most admirable man, and your slander against his Vietnam record is shameful. Even John McCain, who knows a thing or two about Vietnam, the military and Kerry, has nothing but admiration for him. As far as Kerry goes, you are Mr. Envy and Sour Grapes;
4. John Murtha's problem was that he was right about Iraq. Just like those who were right about Vietnam were criticized instead of the other way around. Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, all a waste of good American young men, not to mention the nationals of those countries and their ruined infrastructures and recurrence of religious wars and persecutions. Yes, John Murtha, that'll show you to be right. Defeatists like Rogue don't like people like you. How would you know what a good marine is?
Hey, asked for FOUR (4) proofs or backups today. Where are they? Are you gonna tell me to : a) disprove them or , b) that you already posted said proof?
It is funny how you Libtards HATE Christians and Jews and you think it would be better without them but when it comes to Muslims, why they want piece. A piece (his hand) from him, a piece (his eyes) from another. A piece of that man (kill his family). etc. etc., etc!! Tell us, how is the Muslim Spring wurkin' out for Obummer Boy?
As far as arming Iran while the Iraq-Iran was going on, well, we did not want either side to win. We gave Iran just enough so that would happen and guess what? When the Iraq-Iran war was over, they were back to their original boundaries!
Now how about the Iraq capturing Kwait? First of all Bush-41 was not a conservative and he gave a lame message to Sadamn Hussein so he moved into Kuwait. But Bush-41 had enough smarts to call in the real military and tell them what to do without telling them how to do it!!! This was unlike Hitler of WWII who micro-managed the war so he lost. And unlike LBJ who also tied one arm behind the backs of our military and micro-managed the war and he too lost it.
And yes, we stayed way to long in both Iraq and Afghanistan. The military is trained to break things and kill people and once the military mission is complete, they should leave and let them pick up the pieces.
And John Kerry is a political opportunist and he received a Less than Honorable Discharge in 1971 that was later upgraded when .... Jimmy Carter was president. Oh YES, the DD214 he showed had it's date redacted but some people came out and told the real story. If that is false, why would Kerry redact the date?!? Oh, I have no problem with Social Security numbers but the date of discharge???
And his A&D's are very questionable. Two of his Purple Heart should never have been issued as they were not the result of combat! His Silver Star should at best been a Bronze Star and his Bronze Star should also not have been issued.
Why I came back from Vietnam with more A&D's than Kerry and Owl Gore had together and not one time did I politic for one.
