Iran! Did Carter Enable Khomeini?

Jimmy Carter enabled the return of Khomeini which fueled the past 40 years of turmoil. What if we had a president like Regan or Trump rather than the wimp Carter? Maybe the Middle East would be a stable area now rather than the hot bed it currently is.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Imo, Carter and obama certainly didn't help anything, but the middle east is the middle east, and no amount of politicing is gonna' fix crazy.

The Middle East has been unstable for thousands of years. Those familiar with the Old Testament will know this.

But regarding the history of US and Iran relations, you have to know about this:

1953 Iranian coup d'état.

Google that, it's an eye opener.

The US has been meddling in the Mideast for a long time, with bad results for us, and for the people who live there.

Switzerland doesn't send troops to the Middle East. And their economy is doing fine.

They operate under a dogma of hate and intolerance. Whomever happens to be the President of the US makes little difference in stability of the region. It does, however, make a difference as to the degree of US involvement in the mess.

All true but the question was "what if".

The US did not meddle in the Iranian situation in 1978 and you see what we have now, a country ran by hateful religious radicals with a desire to build an atomic bomb. A military coup with a friendly regime may have been a lot better for the Middle East and the rest of us.

Switzerland has never sent troops anywhere except the Vatican. An enigma considering their location in Europe.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Here is some interesting history:

• 1957 -- The United States signs a civil nuclear cooperation agreement with Iran.

• 1958 -- Iran joins the International Atomic Energy Agency.

• 1967 -- The Tehran Nuclear Research Center opens. It includes a small reactor supplied by the United States.

• 1968 -- Iran signs the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

• Mid-1970s -- With U.S. backing, Iran begins developing a nuclear power program

• 1979 -- Iran's Islamic revolution ends Western involvement in the country's nuclear program.

Are you suggesting that those programs were to develop nuclear weapons?
