Thoughts on Iranian President Interview with Amonpour
It is no secret that the Iranian government and the United States have our differences. Let us also face reality, we overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran in 1953 and they have never forgotten about it. I think they have move on and forward, and are ready to talk with the United States. So what harm would it do us if we talked with the Iranian government? Would it not be in our best national interest in talking peace and trade rather than threatening more sanctions or war?
Some would say, but they're a brutal regime, and to which I agree, but would it not serve our interest to keep out of their affairs and serve as an example as to how a government should be ran which is by Constitution and not religion?
Some would make the argument, but what do we do about Israel, they want to go in and attack Iran? I would say tell the Israelis, that it is not the policy of the United States to attack nations that have not attacked its allies or the United States itself. That any attack or attempts to attack a sovereign nation is counter-productive and against the long standing tradition of the United States, when our nation was founded, to stay out of the affairs of foreign countries, to establish commerce and friendly relations. Anything beyond that is beyond the mandate of the Constitution, and beyond the traditions of the United States.
