    The conservatives I know actually believe history began earlier. But I guess folks find friends of the intellectual drpth they require.

    Thank the Lord we don’t have a mealy-mouthed wishy-washy mullah butt kisser in the White House any longer!


    The Iran people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered!

    We have to start measuring "success" practically. Democracy is not ready made, which means we were (are) too quick to declare the Arab Spring as a failure. The transition to democracy throughout the region is going to take more than single protests, coups, and demonstrations. As it is, we saw dictators fall, autocrats offer concessions, and civil war. We are witnessing, what amounts to be, over a century's old philosophical contest playing out across the region and it will take generations.

    And Iran has a tougher battle because of that 1979 history. Unlike the Arab countries, which continue to move their secular governments more towards democratic systems, Iran has to remove theocracy from their democracy. It will take the Iranian military. Not all of the clerical base supports Khomeini's vision. And some who do believe that the jurists, especially the Supreme Leader, holds far too much power. But those clerics who hold the real power do believe in Khomeini's vision and will not just surrender what they believe is God inspired. They will have to be forcefully removed.

    Enter the typical "conservative" right on time, right joG?

    Which mullah's ass did he kiss? The same asses every single President has kissed? The same asses that Trump has kissed? What you call "ass kissing" is just diplomacy.

    But maybe you are right. We should all thank the Lord that we have a mean spirited, womanizing adulterer in the White House instead. He's all the things Mr. Jesus loves.

    The "Iran people" have been wise to this since at least 1971 when the Shah threw his 2,500 year celebration of the Persian Empire. Hence the economic aspect of their Islamic Revolution and their constant political struggle against theocracy ever since.

    But the funny thing is that you praise the "Iran people" for "getting wise" about how their money is squandered, while Americans do absolutely nothing about how our money is squandered and actually add money to the national debt. We flood the Middle East with money to support autocracy. At least the Middle East is Iran's region.

    Hey joG, here's yet another "Conservative" who likes to think that history just began.

    The conservatives you know are probably actual conservatives who should be ashamed of what is representing them these days. The conservatives I know betrayed everything they used to pretend to believed in so that they could vote for an anti-thesis twice (Primary/General).

    But hey, check out volsrock's post if the concept is still confusing. He thanks the "Lord" for giving him a pussy grabbing, thrice divorced, womanizer who celebrates adultery simply because he likes to believe that Obama was a secret Muslim who's mission was to obliterate America. How rational. Praise Jesus.

    And how come it seems that most of you "very" conservatives are from the mooching state of Texas?

    - I can name every President from Eisenhower to Trump who have salted extreme economic and military aid to Muslim governments throughout the region from Pakistan through to Egypt.
    - I can name Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Carter who made Iran the fifth most powerful military on the planet with a developing nuclear weapon's program.
    - I can name Reagan, who supplied economic and military aid to Islamists in Afghanistan during the 1980s, which inadvertently helped to create the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
    - I can name Clinton, who refused to extend a hand to Iran even as Iran was supplying economic, military, and humanitarian aid to Massoud and the Northern Alliance, which was actively fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan years prior to 9/11.
    - I can name Bush, who refused Iran's assistance to help train a new Afghan military on the grounds that Condoleezae Rice ignorantly believed that Iran was funding the Taliban.

    But lets play the political Obama game and pretend that Iran is the big bad wolf, despite Iran having not taken part in a war or conflict since 1988 and has never even attacked the U.S. Let us all pretend that Iran is never going to achieve nuclear power and keep playing the vanity game so that when it finally achieves, it will be completely on Iran's terms.

    Iran has been a scapegoat for our ignorant politicians and media since the Hostage Crisis of 1979 and it only serves to distract people from the irresponsible House of Saud and the Islamist development that has proven too difficult for most to understand. When in doubt, give the people "Iran" and then take smiling publicity photos shaking an Arab leaders hand in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, or Jordan. Iran is a designed and convenient enemy and is based largely on a grudge that has long outlived its expiration date.
