    Khamenei told a crowd in Tehran that Iran would not capitulate to Western demands. When the crowd started shouting, “Death to America,” the ayatollah responded: “Of course yes, death to America, because America is the original source of this pressure.

    No, I didn't know that. And I doubt you know it, either, as suggested by your conspicuous lack of evidence for it. Makes a nice urban myth, though.

    Then later he committed treason during the Iran Contra scandal.
    If so, you are a little late to try to prove it. Not that it makes any difference, considering that no U.S. president has ever been prosecuted for treason.

    Reagan and Iran were thick as thieves together.
    Again, a wild assertion supported by no evidence. Do you by any chance write for one of those "urban" throwaway papers?

    No doubt the right wing Saudi Wahhabi apologists will try to blame Obama for Reagans crimes.....even though he was still a teenager at the time.
    Have you worn out blaming Bush for your messiah's blundering, so that now you have to reach all the way back to Ronald Reagan? Next you'll be claiming Eisenhower is to blame.

    No lie is too big or too small for the right wing base to swallow with their daily dose of potty sauce.
    I wouldn't know, since I am not a member of "the right wing base"--whatever that is. But President Pinocchio's acolytes should be careful about accusing anyone else of swallowing lies.

    In September 1980, Saddam Hussein started a war against Iran that would have devastating consequences for both countries. The war -the longest conventional war in the 20th century- was characterized by Iraq’s indiscriminate ballistic-missile attacks and extensive use of chemical weapons.

    The war resulted in at least half a million and probably twice as many troops killed on both sides, and in at least half a million men who became permanently disabled. The U.S. actively supported Saddam Hussein in his war efforts with billions of dollars in credits, advanced technology, weaponry, military intelligence, and Special Operations training.

    Pentagon officials in Baghdad planned day-by-day bombing strikes for the Iraqi Air Force. According to the U.S. former ambassador Peter W. Galbraith, Iraq used this data to target Iranian positions with chemical weapons. Despite the brutality of these attacks, Iran didn’t respond in kind.

    In 1984, Iran presented a draft resolution to the United Nations Security Council condemning Saddam Hussein’s use of chemical weapons, based on the Geneva Protocol of 1925. The U.S. instructed its delegate at the UN to lobby friendly representatives to support a motion to abstain on the vote on the use of chemical weapons by Iraq. Given these facts, can we be surprised that Iranians have a deep resentment against the U.S.?
    Your litany is mostly accurate. The U.S. did those things because Saddam Hussein had botched Iraq's prosecution of the war so badly that for a time it was in danger of losing it. The U.S. wanted both sides to weaken each other, and to keep this process going it became necessary to help Iraq. What of it? The U.S. and Britain also helped Saddam's hero and fellow murderous bastard Josef Stalin during World War Two. I don't care what the Jew-hating, America-hating Islamic jihadists who make up the regime in Tehran resent. They can all go straight to hell.

    Look, I'm well aware of US foreign policy interests in weakening nations. A very fine democratic ambition. And no surprise that you would approve. Bottom line here is that we have every reason and possibility to have a positive relationship with Iran. But there's too many that have too much to gain by maintaining tensions and violence in the ME.

    I see, so despite over 30 years of killing Americans all over the world, being the worlds largest state sponsor of terrorism, its treatment of women, gays, and religious minorities, and being headed by a radical fundamentalist islamic cleric who is chanting with his nation DEATH TO AMERICA! as he stalls to get nukes, they are really ok-because they drink coke.

    Duh indeed.

    Where's your proof that Iran is the worlds largest sponsor of terrorism?? Here's what your idol, Ronny's boy had to say.

    The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odom – noted:

    Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.

    Odom also said:

    By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.

    Let me Google that for you Do your own research here's a head start.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
