This may not be entirely true, but it certainly has the appearance of truth to many "impartial" observers. Pakistan gave safe harbor to UBL, and continues to harbor his brothers in arms that are killing our folks in Afghanistan, yet is our "friend and ally" and is getting billions in US foreign aid.



    Agreed! Pakistan is the enemy, not Iran. When will our politicians see through the smoke screen installed by GWShiiteForBrains, who chose Pakistan as our ally against all logic and reason. There was as much culpability involving Pakistan as Afghanistan regarding 9/11. Obtuse would accurately define our policy and the CIA probably initiated it. A. Q. Khan, the world's foremost nuclear terrorist walks the streets of Pakistan as a hero.

    That's funny, the supporters of a terrorist group are not the enemy, and an ally is. Go figure.

    Its not about you American. Never was. Never will be. Its about the disease of right wing hate that your post personifies and illustrates.
    You made this personal, I was talking about Iran and you decide to come in here and attack me.

    Iran’s currency crisis will probably deepen the Islamic republic’s economic contraction this year by more than the International Monetary Fund had estimated, the fund’s Middle East chief said.

    The IMF had forecast the Iranian economy would shrink 0.9 percent this year, while inflation would surge to a four-year high of 25.2 percent. The predictions are based on data from before the rial’s slump, which “will likely have a further negative impact on economic outcomes in the coming year,” Masood Ahmed, head of the Middle East and Central Asia department, said in an interview in Dubai yesterday.

    The Iranian rial has dropped about 40 percent against the dollar since August, and while the central bank’s inflation rate for September was 24 percent, economists say the measure may be three times higher.

    The rial has tumbled about 40 percent against the dollar since August as the U.S. and the European Union starve the country of foreign currency by blocking sales of oil, its main export. Crude output has plunged to the lowest in more than two decades.

    But thanks for being the mouthpiece for the Iranians' propoganda machine.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Conservatives have never been mouthpieces for Iran, but someone like you would easily be.

    Dude, YOU are a mouthpiece for Iran when you uncritically parrot their propoganda, as you've done in this thread.

    I am not sure how this became a partisan thread. The initial comment makes sense. Living under our sanctions is much better than all-out war with America.

    I think the message from the VP is shows that our policy is effective, and we are hitting them where it hurts. I don't agree with any of it, but the strategy seems to be effective.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
