    Exactly, thus we have dreamy immigration law, targetted tax policy, public investments in private industry, civil asset forfeiture and a federal department of education. The law is what the gov't does, not what some piece of paper says that it may.

    Glad there are some people out there like you! Bush funded terrorists that were anti-Iranian fighters. In the end the arms were used against the US.

    Our Men in Iran? : The New Yorker

    "From the air, the terrain of the Department of Energy’s Nevada National Security Site, with its arid high plains and remote mountain peaks, has the look of northwest Iran. The site, some sixty-five miles northwest of Las Vegas, was once used for nuclear testing, and now includes a counterintelligence training facility and a private airport capable of handling Boeing 737 aircraft. It’s a restricted area, and inhospitable—in certain sections, the curious are warned that the site’s security personnel are authorized to use deadly force, if necessary, against intruders.

    It was here that the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) conducted training, beginning in 2005, for members of the Mujahideen-e-Khalq, a dissident Iranian opposition group known in the West as the M.E.K. "

    The US State Department listed them a terrorist group for 15 years. (Foreign Terrorist Organizations)

    While they were de-listed from the US State Department terrorism list last year, what it shows is that we were basically going and embracing terrorists because they were attacking the people we disliked.

    The friend of my friend is my friend
    The enemy of my enemy is my friend
    The enemy of my friend is my enemy
    The friend of my enemy is my enemy

    ...The only good Syrian is a dead Syrian. What I would do would be sell some Sarin to the rebels.

    Hey bartender over here
    Two more shots
    And two more beers
    Sir turn up the TV sound
    The war has started on the ground
    Just love those laser guided bombs
    They're really great
    For righting wrongs
    You hit the target
    And win the game
    From bars 3,000 miles away
    We play the game
    We zap and maim
    We strafe the train
    We gain terrain
    We play the game
    With the bravery of being out of range

    The story is BS, but the MEK is not a terrorist organization in any case.

    The only thing that is not completely republican about this move is we know about it.
