eh, we could just throw a dart at the last 50 years of poor decisions.

Obama giving them aid/money was just another footnote of US poor policy.

I agree, but that wasn't the proper time for political jabs.

I continually fail to understand why everyone is so surprised Iran hates us.

Back in 1953 the US and Great Britain managed to overthrow the Iranian government at the time (a secular, free democracy) because the prime minister, Mohammad Mosaddegh, wanted to audit the British Petroleum-operated oil company that had been essentially running Iran's oil production since 1901. He wanted Iranian independence and to nationalize the oil production of Iran and get Britain out of its oil business, which of course the Brits and the US couldn't let happen because why pay for oil when you can steal Iran's for free, so Mosaddegh was overthrown and a dictator friendly to the West, Pahlavi, was put in place instead. But by the 1970s Iran was in turmoil in large part due to this man. His family sucked up much of the oil money rather than use it to invest in the country, inflation ran rampant, political parties other than his own were banned and eventually the military killed 64 protesters in 1978.

While it's true that Mosaddegh had begun to lose support from the the base wanting a Muslim government even as far back as the early 50's, he is now one of the most revered politicians in Iranian history precisely because the US and Britain decided to stick their noses where they don't belong, then the guy put in place by the western states turned out to be a disaster, and even though the people got what they wanted in 1979 when he was overthrown, the series of events leading up to that is still viewed as the beginning of a period of nearly 70 years of interference in Iran by the West.

Even now the US is blocking the sale of Iranian oil to anyone who deals with US, which is having disastrous consequences on the economy as Iran's oil exports have fallen by more than 80%. That in itself is already an act of war, and Iran is supposed to be happy to come to the table and make more concessions when the US is taking that kind of preemptive step? It's bananas. There are some bad dudes in Iran who support some awful things, but my word this administration is clueless on how to actually address those things.

Until this administration actually provides some detail about what he was planning, I will continue to think killing Soleimani was nothing more than a political stunt to try to get a "win" with his base.
