Re: Revolution in Iran
Ah, but revolution is revolution. Unless you're the Beatles then there was Revolution No. 9.

Re: Revolution in Iran
These days, I spend my slack days on DOL rewind. And I found this old thread.

Today, the Iranian nuclear threat has largely been defanged. They have poured concrete into their reactors and decommissioned most of their nuclear infrastructure. Also, they have agreed to inspections. No one could have predicted this result in 2009, when this thread ended.

Re: Revolution in Iran
And yet the neocon belief persists: They spoil for a fight with Iran. It's still Day 48,049 of "America Held Hostage" for them. Where have you gone Ted Koppel?

(Check it out--I think 48,049 is right....)

Re: Revolution in Iran
When will we recognize that one of the most powerful allies we could ever have are the ancient Persians? The enemy of my enemy (ISIS, Daesh) is my friend.

And if it were not for oil, would the Saudis be our friends?

Hillary Clinton h as never apologized for her support of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Quite the contrary. She has voiced a full-throated defense of her vote. It's one thing that has had neocons voting for her over Trump.

" if it were not for oil, would the Saudis be our friends?"

My friend, I believe that you have that exactly backwards. "Were it not for oil, would we be friends with the Saudis?" One of the most brutal and repressive regimes on the planet.

"When will we recognize that one of the most powerful allies we could ever have are the ancient Persians? The enemy of my enemy (ISIS, Daesh) is my friend."

Yes. And our peoples have so much in common. You would like to believe that the nuclear agreement would have been something that we could have built upon. Perhaps it still might. However, it probably won't happen under President Clinton or President Trump.
