Carol, more atrocities were committed in Iraq after we invaded. And no stupid, we already know that the Iraq ware was a waste of lives and money which did nothing but play into the hands of the Iranians and gave Al Qaeda another area to operate in. I notice that you didn't mention Eisenhower's overthrow of the elected president of Iran putting the Shah in his place who was responsible for as many atrocities as Sadaam Hussein or Nixon using the CIA to overthrow Salvador Allende and put Augusto Pinochet into power whose abuses would make Sadaam blush with envy.
There are a lot of things we don't fully understand or about which we know the full story.

Apparently, the democratically elected, Mohammed Mosaddeq, planned to nationalize the oil industry and shut out the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company which was a vital interest to Britain's economy and provided them political clout in the region.

By the time Eisenhower came to office, fears that communists were poised to overthrow the Iranian government became an all-consuming concern. The power struggle between Russia and the U.S. back then was, in part, who had the most influence in oil-rich countries.

Both Britian and the United States had much to lose.

We could have gone back to the horse and buggy, I suppose.

As Madeline Albright summized, "The Eisenhower Administration believed its actions were justified for strategic reasons."

There are no crystal balls.

Filthy Disgusting LIAR!! Did Jews hang you by your filthy little Muslim baby feet and spank your little bottom blue and that's why you hate them so much you imbecile?? I only wish they had and then you have a reason for your gum flappin ignorant nonsense, hate, lies, propaganda and endless hogwash!! Go back to looking at your Hamas Jewish hate material they sent you and remain a susceptible victim to the psy ops campaign waged by the you and the Hamas Sock Puppets states media.
Israel is the ONLY democracy in the Arab sewer region known as the Middle East, it shares boots on the ground Intel with the US Intelligence. 60% of Israel's Jews have originated from Arab countries look Arab, and speak fluent Arabic its spies can penetrate where no US spy can. Israel took out Saddam's nuclear reactor saving thousands of US GI lives during Desert Storm. Recently the Mayor of Los Angeles accompanied LAPD officers to Israel where they were trained by Israel anti-terrorism experts to better protect US citizens. Recently Israel formed a military alliance with Canada, Cyprus, and several major African nations, and soon will form an alliance with Vietnam. YOU anti-Israel whiners assclowns should do some soul searching to try and see what the hell you're talking about. Whatever the reason for your personal hate, phobia, psychosis or just plain ignorance, get OVER IT!! Israel is very important to the US and it is in our national interest to keep it strong as our ally. We are thankful to Israel daring and brave to stand up to the Arab/Muslim bullies who surround their little but powerful nation. Now tell us about Arab AID dumbazz. You know!! Those same Arabs that support terrorists, harbor terrorists, buy arms for terrorists or use it for building Mosques as they incite hatred toward the good old USA!!!!

I wish you wouldn't use the word "we" when talking about things YOU don't understand.

You can make the above rationalization all you want but it doesn't negate the damage that resulted and doesn't justify repeating the mistakes of the past.

According to official IRS data, the top 1% of income earners paid $84 billion more in federal income taxes in 2007 than in 2000 before the Bush tax cuts were passed, 23% more. The share of total federal income taxes paid by the top 1% rose from 37% in 2000, before the Bush tax cuts, to 40% in 2007, after the tax cuts.

In contrast, the bottom half of income earners paid $6 billion less in federal income taxes in 2007 than in 2000, a decline of 16%. The share of federal income taxes paid by the bottom 50% declined from 3.9% in 2000 to 2.9% in 2007.

The Bush tax cuts also included a doubling of the child tax credit from $500 per child to $1,000 per child. Because of that, and the 33% cut in the bottom tax rate, nearly 8 million more people dropped off the federal income tax rolls entirely, paying zero federal income taxes. Indeed, under the Bush tax cuts, the bottom 40% of all income earners not only paid no federal income taxes, as a group on net. By 2009, they were being paid cash by the IRS equal to 10% of all federal income taxes.

These Bush tax cuts did not explode the deficit, as Obama and his echo chamber have alleged. By 2007, the deficit was down to $160 billion, less than 15% of Obama’s deficits today. Total federal revenues soared from $793.7 billion in 2003, when the last of the Bush tax cuts were enacted, to $1.16 trillion in 2007, a 47% increase. Capital gains revenues had doubled by 2005, despite the 25% capital gains rate cut adopted in 2003. Federal revenues rose to 18.5% of GDP by 2007, above the long term, postwar, historical average over the prior 60 years. CBO was projecting surpluses to return indefinitely in 2012 through the end of its projection period in 2018.
