    Hopefully they are..

    But there is a big difference. The United States has very little in terms of diplomatic pressure they can put on Iran.

    Banksters? People who work in banks and run banks? They might be your friends and neighbors but they run a business ....gasp....to make money. Is that offensive to socialists? Politicians are never your friends. They smile and tell you what you want to hear but they work for us and we have to be on their backs at all times to make sure they do the right thing. When a politician asks you to rely on "hope" you have to realize that he is an inept fraud who will take you to the poor house.

    Our founders turned hope into freedom.

    Do you hate them too?

    I wonder if any of the short-sighted denizens of the Peanut Gallery, who are now cheering and rubbing their hands with glee, remember who replaced the Shah of Iran, when he was deposed. :eusa_think:

    Unfortunately, they are rather short-sighted.

    Which "chance" would that be?

    Personally, I would say the election of Khatami was our chance..but that was flubbed by both the Clinton and Bush administrations.

    If I were the Iranian government I block everything coming out of Egypt, don't want to give the people any ideas. Syria has already done so.
