Thank you for your attention to this detail. Nevertheless, it did happen, and that is the point of the beginning for the current activities of the Islamic Revolution trying to impose the Islamic way of things on a world lost in unbelief that such things can happen. After all, did the Cold War under the Soviet watch not teach us anything? Apparently not, but the Soviet incursion into Afghanistan and how it affects today's situation in the Middle east should have.

America now seems unable to negotiate for a Middle Eastern peace either, and is paying an extreme price for that. Forget about the ratcheting gas prices, that is partly America's own doing. But the cost in American brave men and women standing watch in the Middle East and laying down their lives for our safety here in the United States, wanting nothing more than peace to pursue the freedoms and liberties of a free society, that is a very heavy cost that electrifies emotions throughout the military and the families that are their support.

As we here again the intransigence of the Iranian President and his followers who want so desperately to remake the world in their image, we can definitely say the peace that they are willing to promote will have a heavy price as well, but it now seems that they, or anyone else for that matter, have no real idea how much it is going to cost. For if they did, the preparations would be for everyone to acknowledge the world is heading in the wrong direction and it will require nothing less than the Divine intervention as prescribed in the Hebrew Holy Bible to bring about the peace promised there.
