I was speaking to a gentleman who as a boy witnessed the disintegration of Lebanon. Once known as the Paris of the Middle East. The banking center of the Arab world. He was about ten years old and this is what he recalled. The electricity went out and when it came back on there were tanks in the street and the country had a new government. When the bullets stopped flying everything was rubble. He and his brother moved to Iran under the Shah. He said Iran was like paradise. The people were happy and prosperous. They were modern. He blames Jimmy Carter for what happened to Iran and says he should be hanged for what he did.I recall Jimmy carter when the Shah was exiled he did not want to let him in. Then like in Lebanon the lights went out and when they came back on the Ayatollahs were in charge and the war with Iraq began. His brother was a commercial airline pilot and he was just retuning to Teheran. He was in the pilots lounge when when he was ordered to make a short flight. He walked out to the aircraft and it was packed with children standing room only. He asked where are the children going. He was told they are going to the battlefield to walk thru minefields. Now he is here in New York for many years. He loves the south. He told me that during the war of 1812 South Carolina sent more troops to fight for us than the entire New England states. Do American kids know that?. He respects red necks a term for hard working farmers with sunburns. Now he is afraid of what he escaped from twice is now here in the USA.out. George Washingtom sent Trump, Cruz and Carson.
