A History Lesson on Iranian Blowback
Here’s the video that Rudy Giuliani and his ignorant supporters need to watch:
Giuliani’s evident ignorance of foreign policy, its realities and consequences, shows how unfit he is for this nation. In short, he was dead wrong.
Blowback is nothing more than cause and effect. Our foreign policy most certainly has consequences.
The Roman empire suffered from such blowback in their military adventurism, just as our empire suffers and will continue to suffer, so long as we continue to maintain a presence the world over (130+ countries!).
Ron Paul, a student of history, was right. Rudy Giuliani, a fearmongering incompetent, was wrong.

Hey don’t forget Democrats (minus Mr. Lieberman of course), also students of history, also cognizant of Republican messes in Iran (Eisenhower, Reagan and now Bush).

The only problem is that when you pull parties into it, as you have, it becomes selective amnesia. The donkeys inflate everything the elephants have done while minimizing their own flawed foreign policy, and vice versa.
Both parties have had jacked up foreign policy.
As much as you love your Democrats, Dan, this should not be a partisan issue. It’s not about pointing fingers to your political opponents. It’s about truth, it’s about what’s right and wrong, and it’s about what we need to do as Americans to fix it.
Not a partisan issue? Then why did you say:
Clearly you’re making a partisan point, here, Connor. You’re playing up Mr. Paul for your readers to vote for him. Well, let’s just be clear that Democrats have a more realistic look at Iran than Republicans have ever had.

By partisan I meant “in support of a party”, not a person. Both Paul and Giuliani are in the GOP, so the party element doesn’t apply. But yes, I am clearly supporting one person over another, as Paul showed himself to be spot on while Giuliani showed himself to be an unlearned buffoon. 🙂
alrighty then, let me be more clear. Senators Obama, Clinton, and Edwards all have a better understanding of Iran than any Republican candidate. 😛

Including Rep. Paul?! Hahahaha!
Please tell me you’re joking. If not, can you please share some speeches and quotes that demonstrate their mastery of and consistency with Iranian foreign Policy?
Nice use of ‘The Logical Song’.
Remember when Shi’ites were the bad guys?
Dan, I’ve got to agree with our host here. The democrats are as big on talking tough on Iran as Bush is. They’re all complete idiots besides a few notable exceptions who don’t have a chance at being elected. Paul is the only one speaking the truth on this issue.
great video but the music has got to go…
