Well, Sex Machine, you may have a Santorumesque view of the role for American Foreign policy, but it cannot escape the fact that we ARE responsible, yes, completely 100% responsible, for the current THEOCRACY ruling Iran. We DID support a coup against a democratically elected leader. Thus, like many other failed attempts at installing stooges in countries, we end up creating our own enemies. Saddamm hussein was another good example.
So you tell me, how is THAT better than diplomacy? Lets fuck up a democracy, so a void can be filled with someone we now have a pretext to hate even more? Great for the military industrial complex and fear mongering that people like you are susceptible to. You cant look at a present day situation without analyzing the pretext under which it occurred. No wait, I also forgot, boycotts and sanctions have worked SOOOO well with cuba.
I read CNN polls talking about Bachman this and Bachman that, when it was clear that she was far behind Ron in the polls. CNN likes to pick winners, just as Fox does, with their corporatists leanings. Its hard to deny the results though.
