Once Regan was sworn in, the Iranians in effect said "here you go, we want no **** with you" and the hostages were freed.
The Lebanese and USS Cole bombings were next. Many died.
Still, this **** goes beyond politics. While I hope Obama is history in another couple of months, let's keep it real. We can't appease those who hate us for our perceived actions against their ignorant backwater selves.
**** em. We don't belong there, in people or purse. Let the fuckers rot.
Drill baby, drill and all that ****.
I'll put up US$100 to send our resident socialist, Hedge, to the negotiate with the bastards. Anyone else in?Carter Hargrave's Jeet Can't Do

Bait? No just ignorance. The OP
Sarcasm or rhetorical, Sam is commenting on the purposeful misinformation contained in the above meme. You know hypocrisy. As the same thing happened, under different circumstances, during Regan's watch. You know, the thing Dusty's little post ignored.

Many criticisms are possible of Barack Obama from a right-wing perspective, no doubt. But on the remote-controlled slaughter of Muslims issue he is rock solid.
Is it a common sentiment amongst American wing nuts that the Arab world would be dramatically poorer without American involvement there? Genuine question. Are they aware of the percentages of that support that has historically been military aid to prop up regimes despised by their own people? When they talk about withdrawing into an isolationist stance are they including the Israelis?
Is Dusty Mars unaware of any dramatic attacks on Americans that occurred under a Republican President? Cause I can think of one fairly minor one that we had a recent anniversary for, might have escaped his forensic scrutiny...

Does anyone here other then myself remember that Reagan, rather that frightening the Iranians into submission, ended up trading arms for hostages, resulting in the Iranians seizing even more American hostages? It really comprimises the "Reagan is a tough guy" "Carter was a naive wimp, narrative".
Oh you don't need to believe me, read Bob Baer's book "See No Evil" He worked as a case officer for the CIA in Lebannon in the 1980s, and is a witness to much of the stupidity which happened.
