No, dude, obviouolsy you're having trouble being serious about anything. You want to blame everyuone else for our problems and not take any responsibility - how liberal minded of you.

So a country can be charged with assualt?

Yes, only it's called "terrorism". And we are the police, the judge, the jury and the executioner.

We engage in acts of terrorism as we have defined the term.

People have BEEN terrorized by our actions and the actions of those we support. What we are calling 'terrorism' is mostly a response to that.

Why do you just ask questions and not answer mine or provide any meaningful discussion or viewpoints?

Why not answer all the questions I asked you? After all, I've pretty much answered all the questions you've asked me.

Probably because I am too lazy to weed back through this thread to find the questions, then decipher if they infact pertain to cheney and/or Iran.

Can you think of anything that the U.S. has done over the last 60 years that would make Iranians like us?

You still haven't answered the question.
Gave them millions and millions of dollars, public assistance, food, pharmaceuticals, etc., etc., etc.

It's what we do.

We overthrew their elected government and installed a dictator.

ETA: It's what we do.

That's why they attacked our embassy.

re: The World According to Dick Cheney


Chaney has always chased the Benjamens. Ever since he was in that drunk tank and his bride was about to graduate and dump him. He was made the CEO of Haliburton because...? Didn't the stock take a dive during his tenure. What is his big accomplishment? And Chinesebandit, apparently we're about the same age and if you supported that stupid arse war and sat home bbqing in the back yard - that makes you just like W a chick hawk. For those younger, getting in a national guard in those days was more difficult than getting in the Augusta National.

No.
At most, we only helped to overthrow an unpopular government. Significant elements of the Iranian population had already lost faith in its leadership.
quote:

No.
They attacked and held hostages because the Shah was receiving medical care in the US. They wanted him returned to Tehran so they could "Daniel Pearl" him.

So the frick what? Great Britain was nationalizing their coal fields at the same time, did we overthrow their government too?

The fact is that the Iranian government approached GB and discussed the possibility of nationalizing their oil on the SAME LINES as GB was nationalizing their infrastructure. BP threw a conniption fit and complained to the government. The British called up their friends in the US and asked if we could do something to help BP out, so we overthrew the government in Iran.

What does it matter what Iran wanted to do with thier own resources?

So now military service is a determinate for office, or actions taken in office?



I think if you gonna vote for war then you should at least experience it first hand, maybe as a medic or front line grunt. Maybe then those who did, wouldn't be so quick to send other people's sons and daughters to be slaughtered.

Granted, it wasn't hard to do, but the United States was complicit in the overthrow of the government of a soveriegn nation - AND THEY DIDN'T FORGET.
quote:

They attacked and held hostages because the Shah was receiving medical care in the US. They wanted him returned to Tehran so they could put him on trial

The embassy was attacked 8 months and a week before the Shah was admitted to the US.

But yes, they wanted the Shah back so they could put him on trial for alleged crimes against his own people. It's called "Justice" and the US intervened and denied them justice.

Why people seem to think it's okay for us to interfere in the internal affairs of other nations is beyond me. Can you imagine if we proposed some law in our country that someone else in another country found unjust and in turn overthrew our government and installed their own man? How well do you think that would go over in this country? Why should we think it's any different in other countries?

24 hours, 4 pages and you're all still arguing about Dick Cheney's Vietnam status?

And still nothing about the insulting omission of Wolfowitz. But hey, I guess if it isn't on the big glowing square, it didn't happen.

Americans were held hostage for 444 days from November 4, 1979 to January 20, 1981.

The Shah was admitted to the United States on October 22, 1979 for surgery at Cornell.

Our embassy was attacked about 8 months before the Shah died.
