ROFL did Rick Santorum really say Iran has been at war with us since 1979?

“Iran is not iceland, Ron,” Santorum insisted. “Iran is a country that has been at war with us since 1979. Iran has killed more American men and women in uniform in Iraq and Afghanistan than the Iraqis and Afghans have.”

I'm going to have to watch the video for that. That seems really hard to believe.

Holy ****. I loved Ron Paul's response to that... especially at the end when he brought up the 1953 coup. That was awesome. I've gotta watch the last GOP debate now.

Correction: he made himself look like a fool.

Which he is.

Iranians are shapeshifters and they're responsible for every American death in history.

No correction needed. Paul slaughtered then exposed him to his own base, hopefully he drops out the race after this debacle.

I find it hillarious how on the Internet, libertarians are widespread, and also that reality and opinion is 180 degrees from the mainstream.

NEWSFLASH - Paul showed he is a bonafide crazy man and his response on Iran makes him utterly unfit to be President. Sorry, it's the truth.

Paul kicked so much ass on this debate.

I'm not a libertarian, I don't like Ron Paul, but I think he was pretty much 100% dead on here.

^We should let Iran acquire nukes??? No, he's a nut. Every other person in that debate rightfully rejected that idiot position.
