Obama and Chretien and even their predecessors all dealt with Iran at one time or another. One gets no more credit than the other. The Republicans and Democrats fight a proxy war through Iran and the Saudis. I guess the Saudis get more of a pass because of oil. Sad but that’s how power gets brokered in the Middle East: Israel gets arms. Saudi Arabia gets military protection and a U.S. base in exchange for predictable oil supply. Iran is hemmed in by the Sunnis, well, sort of. Obama propped up a Shia minority government in Iraq. So much mess we can’t keep track. The victims are the regular citizens just trying to get by and take care of their families. Canada did close the embassy after the murder of that dual Canadian citizen journalist. Sad to think what a shadow Iran is of the once great Persian empire. That theocracy demonstrates the importance of separating church and state.
