#1 Oh for a Republican POTUS like Reagan.

#2 Carter should have taken the city of Qom hostage in 1979 with a nuke. A deadline should have been given for the release of the hostages. If they were not released, take out Qom. If they were harmed, then go on to the next city. I have trouble imagining Carter ever contemplating that option.

#3 "Death to America"

Enjoy the party. We have not forgotten either.

I have trouble imagining Carter ever contemplating that option.

One of Carter's conditions for a rescue mission to take place was that the rescuers only use non-lethal methods when trying to beat feet out of Tehran.

#4 JQC you have the heart of a liberal. I would have nuked Qom and then started negations over Mecca.

Nukes... Gawd gave them to us for a reason.

#5 SteveS - that sounds eerily like OBumbles's Rules of Engagement today in Afghanistan.

"Don't wake up the locals defending yourselves...."

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
