    So, it's going to be the Repub's fault for not backdoor funding the program, nevermind that it's Libbos that cut off the jack in the first place. Right?

    No I am asking a question.

    If this is so important, then why has no one in Congress from either side, not put money in an earmark long ago to make sure there is funding.. It is not like there was no warning on the lack of funding. If it is so important, then why has Congress not taken away the funding from State and control it themselves?

    I mean Congress does not forget to earmark funds for Israel in whatever bill they choose, but they forget or refuse to fund Pro US Iranian dissidents.. does not make sense.

    I agree. It defiantly does not make any sense, but the government doesn't do to much anymore than makes sense so not a big surprise.

    I'm not sure, but it could possibly be a violation of The Logan Act to do so.

    I said it once and I'll say it again. All world leaders pretend to hate each other to control their own people. Except Sadam I guess :p

    [QUOTE=Catz Part Deux;1058293593

    This is bad, very bad. It sends a message to the Ahmadinejad administration that we don't care what he does to his people who have taken to the streets in peaceful protest. We should not be fighting the battles of the people of Iran, but we ought to be PUBLICIZING THEM and WATCHING.

    .[/QUOTE]

    And why exactly should the US be peeping and interfering with the life in Iran? Have you sorted out all your domestic social problems and inadequacies? Why do you assume you have the right to meddle in other countries business?!

    Because as the leaders of the free world, it's our job to cultivate freedom at every opportunity.

    Because the present leadership supports rouge nations and International Terror Groups and has crack down on it's own population with murder and torture and a stolen election to just name a few reason.
