Poor piss excuse for a darn short sightness (ingorance) of Regan's foreign policy...
There were like 300 American hostages in the Iran, no one was hurt.....
There were 1,000,000 casualties of Irak-Iran war (where Saddam got US backing)...
Shame...

So what, we are not talking about France here....

While I agree, in hindsite it was probably a foreign policy mistake, but at the time it made sense.

Exactly. However, the bad part isnt that a mistake was made, but that its not being learned from today.

Anybody watch Conan last night? Triumph the Insult Dog went out on street in Canada to talk to the Frech-Canadians. He brought a translator with him for the folks who didn't speak English. He came up to one Franch girl and said "Sorry I had to bring a translator...I only know basic Franch expressions, like "I surrender".
