Hey, let's dig up the Dulles boys, find some mean bustard Shah and shove him into power in Iran. There, problem solved. Hmmm that sounds like an old, moss covered, white male Republican war threat response.
Eisenhower also got us into Vnam, Cuba, and assorted other affairs that are still costing us. The right wing fascist type attitude continues in the old, white, male, moss covered geezers (of a wide range of ages).
