Skip to comments.Iran and the Taliban: Rotten peas in a pod

The similarities between the Taliban of Afghanistan and the Islamic Republic of Iran are striking and worth assessing before the U.S. aids either in any way or makes agreements with either that will affect our national security.
Both the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Taliban are radical Islamist terrorist regimes that hold the people of their two great countries as hostages. Both are built around an extreme interpretation of Islam that makes them hostile, and often violent, toward all non-Muslims, as well as toward Muslims who do not share their religious or political views. Both regimes suppress the universally respected human rights and individual political freedoms of their citizens. Both are anti-women, anti-gay and anti-American. Both have recently elevated to top positions in their government men designated as terrorists and sanctioned by the U.S. government.
Common man! Your guy just put a whole bunch of fertilizer on both countries.
All of this would have been avoided if when the Iranian government in violation of international law seized American diplomats as hostage, the United States declared war on the barbarians, then destroyed their regime and nation. There would have been no Gulf war, 9/11, the invasion of Iraq, Afghanistan or ISIS. A weak President incapable of forceful leadership then and now weakens America and only encourages other barbarians. Sadly there will be more blood shed and treasure squandered.
They mean well and to kill ya
It goes all the way back to commie Peanut J. Carter.
The article failed to mention Turkey under Erdogan. Islam is the problem no matter how often they make excuses for its consistent followers.
