Iranian "Moderate" Mousavi Belongs in Gitmo

Via Hot Air comes the news that the "moderate" Iranian opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi is the Butcher of Beirut, responsible for the terrorist attack on the U.S. Marine Corps barracks that killed 241 servicemen.

I said it before, and I'll say it again:

No matter who eventually prevails, the Iranian government will still continue their drive to build nuclear weapons. They will still fund terrorists. They will still train terrorists in their country to kill civilians in Israel. They will still train terrorists to kill American soldiers in Iraq.

What I didn't know at the time is that the Iranian opposition leader already had gallons of U.S. blood on his hands, and is by any rational measure is a terrorist.

Please tell me once again why which despot they put in power really matters to me... or you.

Great point. I've been on the same tack as well. The thing is, I think that if you read between the lines as far as what the youth are saying, it seems like they're offering the presidency in return for dismantling a large part of the religious structure. That doesn't go away entirely in a Muslim nation, particularly one with a traditionalist Shi'ite majority, but hopefully Mousavi wants an office more than he wants to carry on Iran's failures. Either way, he is certainly only the lesser of two evils.

I agree entirely with GS.Nothing more to really add.

Oh poop! Come one! These kinds of statements are what gives the internet a bad name. At some point you must rise above the riffraff else you will always be a child squawking at every stimulus no matter how absurd.

BTW - the gov of S Carolina is really Hugo Chavez on stilts.

At this point it's not who is in power, but who puts him there. Will it be the people, or the Assembly of (gah) Experts? Just standing up to the Mullahs is a good start. Rome wasn't built in a day. Neither was the U.S., but you have to start somewhere, and you may as well start as soon as possible.

In America, there are increasingly no differences between Republicans and Democrats. So would that make voter fraud here in the US acceptable?

Does the fact the Europeans liked Obama more than McCain make the National Guard shooting McCain supporters or Tea Party speakers/organizers acceptable?

You actually talking about events in the real world here, Adriane? Has the National Guard been slaughtering citizens of whichever fantasy land you inhabit?

If so, you have my condolences but I assure you that here in reality it isn't happening. Go back and ride your unicorn.

I guess Mousavi is "just" a terrorist and not that "special kind" of crazy the mullahs require.
