    This is a perfect example of American Socialist Democrats propaganda in what will be a futile attempt to bring down the only single man on the planet who can bring sanity back to the world. The United States invested a huge contribution in both life and fortune to free the Iraqi populace from a tyrant. No way will Iran be allowed to step in and turn back the hands of time.
