Republican legislators went will cheering Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is ready to bomb the hell out of Iran in order to avoid…..? Following is the story of how Republican leaders have handled Iran:
1. In August, 1953, the American CIA led by Kermit Roosevelt, worked with British intelligence to overthrow the legitimate Secular leader of Iran. Prime Minister Mossadegh was overthrown and the result was return to power of the Shah who, in turn, was overthrown by a coalition of secular and religious groups in the 1970s,
2. During the 1990s, then Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that time was running out before Iran had a nuclear weapon.
3. In 2001 when American forces swept through Afghanistan the Iranian reform President Khatami closed the border with Afghanistan to prevent Taliban forces from escaping. His intelligence provided information to American armed forces. Khatami offered the following deal to REPUBLICAN GEORGE BUSH:
UN inspectors could enter Iran to check on their nuclear work.
Iran would cease aiding terrorists.
Iran would recognize the state of Israel.
In return, Iran wanted:
recognition of their government.
end to sanctions.
PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH TURNED DOWN THIS OFFER AND CALLED IRAN A TERRORIST STATE.
So much for Republicans aiding Israel.
