Putin & Gore Yeah, THEY want the best for the U.S.!

Ah, how the past can come back to bite us in the ass! The Progressives are still angry on how they perceive that President Bush "stole" the 2000 election from ALgore...yet the more we find coming out from under the cover of secrecy, we can see how the Clinton-Gore years have formed the present situation.

Right now, we are haveing an increase in tensions in the M.E. over and above the war in Iraq, namely, the perseption that Iran is, by some accounts, a mere 6 months or so away from becoming a nuclear power. Given the recent strident rhetoric against Israel by Iran's newly elected President; the aquisition of a nuclear capability by Iran is certainly unacceptable by anyone NOT wishing to see that part of the world become a green glass bowl, glowing for the next thousand years or so..

Now it's coming out that Putin is selling the Irani's a ground to air missile defense system to protect their nuclear facilities, making their completing their nuclears weapons program much less vunerable to interdiction before they achieve success; at least withoiut triggering a war that makes the excursions into Afghanistan and Iraq seem like a stroll in the park.

And guess who Putin uses as a justification for the legality os such arms sales to a state such as Iran? Why, none other than Al Gore, that paragon of Progressive hopes.

Seems that in 1995, VP Gore negotiated a secret pact with the Soviet govt., wherein :"Gore assured Russia that, under the provisions of the agreement, the U.S. would not sanction the Kremlin for Russian arm sales to Iran – through 1999." This, from the sponsor of the
Iran-Iraq Non-proliferation Act (by then Sen. Gore), that required the imposition of sanctions against countries that made destabilizing arms sales to either Iran or Iraq. Can you say "product of situational ethics?"

If this is not proof that the Progresive agenda doesn't pose a danger to the security of the United States, as it is conducted behind the scenes, out of the public eye, then I don't know what is.

What are you talking about Delftsman? Are you trying to tell me that conversatives don't sell weapons to undemocratic dangerous regimes? Or that we don't support dangerous regimes? Why do you think we ended up in Iraq? One of these days I'm going to have to send you a history of the last 50 years for a Christmas present.
