    All that merely because of a nuclear weapons program? "Generations of darkness"? Really? The Middle East is already trying to fight off the yoke of theocratic rule and fundamentalist Islam. It basically held sway for a single generation. A lot of people throughout the region want to be modern, secular people. Not atheist, but secular. They want modern governments with modern laws, not fanatical attempts to adhere to a book from over a thousand years ago.

    That's probably true. But it's not in the US interests to allow that to happen.

    Are you talking of the leadership or the people?

    The Iranian people revolted against their leadership but received no help whatsoever from President Obama. Obama supported the religious extremists, just as he did in Egypt.Articles: Why Obama Betrayed the Iranian People

    In the ME it matters not what the people want. We see that play out daily.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    We see a fair share of that played out at home, too!

    Do you REALLY think that 40 % of marriages in Arkansas are to family members?
    No I don't. But it's funny how you can insult a whole region of the world, but if I were to imply that people in Arkansas were inbred rednecks, the same people jump down my throat. It's the same sort of BS statement, but as long as a righty says it about Musilms it's OK.

    I'm going to go back and see where you went against Republican propaganda. Nothing gets Grant's panties in a wad faster, and then he starts calling names.
