Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

We aren't biased.

That's what the MSM says when they are accused of liberal bias. Then we have this news report from the Washington Post on yesterday's place crash in Tehran.

News reports said the Lockheed C-130, a four-engine turboprop, may have been acquired from the United States when Iran was a U.S. ally and ruled by Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. The monarchy was overthrown by the 1979 revolution that established an Islamic state.

U.S. trade sanctions against Iran have led to chronic shortages of aircraft spare parts. The Bush administration this year held out the possibility of lifting the sanction on airline parts as a bargaining chip in negotiations over the future of Iran's nuclear program.

The cause of the crash is unknown but Post writers Mehrdad Mirdamadi and Karl Vick don't waste any time laying possible blame at the US and President Bush for not removing sanctions. Someone needs to remind the Post of who put the sanctions in place. A democratic congress and President Jimmy Carter.
