How come Issa didn't start an investigation back then?

With regard to Syria, there is little difference between Obama and McCain.

If you think Galt will be upset by your attacks on McCain, then knock yourself out.

I get it. If it were a Democrat held House pushing through a bill to expand the rights of gay couples you'd be howling.

Greenpeace is considered a terrorist organization in Europe and should be here also. The NAACP was embezzling millions of dollars. And what was the other one that you libs have been holding up as proof for the past several weeks. Oh that's right---the church that supports moslem terrorists financially to kill our soldiers overseas

McCain and Graham are not RINOs.

They are simply wrong on agitating for US involvement in additional Arab countries.

What a dummy you are
Carter’s treatment of the Shah of Iran was his crowning achievement in his war against the United States and the stability of the world as a whole.

In 1901, a British Millionaire negotiated with Shah Mozzafar al-Din to allow him to prospect for oil in Persia for 60 years. In exchange, the Shah received about $2 million and 16% of future profits. The actual discovery of the first oil field was in 1908 and from then on Iran became the world’s top producer of oil with various European nations and the United States joining the British in running, and tapping the profits from, the oil fields. But at the same time the economy of Persia soared. True the Shah became rich. But he also cared for his people.

In the fifties American relations with Iran grew stronger and more confident under the Shah’s son who succeeded him. They courted the younger Shah as he continued to make Iran free and prosperous and at the same time made the United States more prosperous than ever. It was a win-win situation for the leaders and the people of both countries. In 1964 President Lyndon Johnson declared “What is going on in Iran is about the best thing going on anywhere in the World.” The trade in oil to fuel American motor cars caused a great deal of the prosperity that helped the United States recover from the war and take her place and the leader of the free world.

In the 1970s the Shah’s wise rule brought Iran to the position of being a power for good in the Middle East. His European education caused him to want to keep the Muslim clerics at bay and enact several modernizing changes in the age-old system of the country. These included rights for women and for ethnic and religious minorities and would probably have continued into a state of full democracy. But this infuriated the Islamic Fundamentalists who wanted to keep their chokehold on Iranian life.

The American administrations of Nixon and Ford stood shoulder to shoulder with the Shah in his fight to put down Islamic rebellions and offered him everything but nuclear weapons. Jimmy Carter toasted the Shah during a Tehran State visit on New Year’s Eve 1977 and declared that Iran was “an island of stability in one of the more troubled areas of the world... the Carter administration had been undermining the Shah’s regime by demanding that he make major reforms immediately and not wait for more stability.

The Shah was forced to rule with strength and determination for the sake of the whole free world. But Carter did not have the intellectual ability to understand such things. He just thought that everybody should be nice and make friends. Eventually by use of threats to curtail aid payments and arms Carter forced the Shah to release many radical fundamentalists and terrorists from his prisons and they quickly came together to form the mob who finally brought down the Pavlavi dynasty and replaced it with the terrorist leaders we see today in Iran. Soon the mob of terrorists had multiplied so many times it was impossible for the Shah to continue to govern and he was forced to step down.

Enter Hostage crisis. The whole world knew that Carter would never stand up to the Muslim mob in Tehran but the day before Ronald Reagan became President and Carter left the White House, the mob let the hostages go. They knew a real president in the United States would never stand for what weak-kneed Carter had allowed.

Worldwide revolution of fundamentalist Islam
But Carter’s moral weakness not only unleashed the horror of the present regime in Iran. He also began the worldwide revolution of fundamentalist Islam on the rest of the world. The so-called Arab Spring was born in Tehran and spread underground to the rest of the Arab, Muslim world.

Learn some history lily. Carter was a moron like you.
