Oh, you must be referring to Netanyahu. I was saying that it would be more honest to have Netanyahu as our secretary of state; I did not say it was possible.
Lets get back to the issue. Is the Shah’s government there (who we supposedly owe money to) or not? NOT!!! We owe these terrorists NOTHING!!! Get it?
The Shah’s government received the money they paid to the US from the people they taxed, so the people were rightly owed something back once all the more important other items were negotiated.
Michael, try to imagine if the situation were reversed. Let’s say Nation X supports a coup that deposes our elected leader in the US. Next, Nation X supports factions that force a new leader on us, brutally suppressing all opposition. In addition, we must pay taxes to this essentially occupying government. The occupying government pays some of our tax money to Nation X for weapons, as Nation X is supplying the very weapons needed to suppress our populace. We finally get together and kick out the imposed leader, and years later Nation X wants us to stop arming ourselves against an aggressive neighbor who persecutes a people we care about. Wouldn’t you want Nation X to pay back what we paid to them, with interest?
There are a few people in Iran who are in favor of getting money to a political group in Lebanon who are at essentially at war with the state of Israel and approve of atrocities, as the Shia in Lebanon and Palestine also experience atrocities (all of it is bad). These people are not the majority, by far, in Iran. Rouhani is not one of them; the nuclear deal was opposed by the hawks.
Feel free to disagree, we can find some things online that might further clarify the situation.
Have a peaceful, blessed day.
