We also reap what we sow. We sowed the state sponsors of terrorism in Tehran when the CIA overthrow the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran, Mohammed Mossedeq, in 1953 in favor of the weak, corrupt, dictatorial, and megalomaniacal Shah of Iran, which led straight to his ouster by the current Shiite governing fanatics. In other words, we gave birth to Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism—but none dare say so because of political correctness. We also choose to ignore the role we have played in turning Iraq and Lybia into failed States and veritable hotbeds for Islamic extremism. Every time we "mistakenly" bomb innocent non-combatants in the Mideast, we create the opportunity for terrorists to find sympathetic new recruits.
