It's a double-edged sword. We're all for a democracy in a country, yet we don't want our gas prices to skyrocket.

also fun reminder Carter sent in Chuck Norris and Charlie Sheen to get them out but the military, as usual, couldn't do their job due to massive incompetence and somehow Carter got blamed for it.

Operation Eagle Claw (or Operation Evening Light or Operation Rice Bowl[1]) was a United States military operation that attempted to rescue 52 Americans from the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran on 24 April 1980, ordered by President Jimmy Carter. The operational requirement was of six helicopters; however, eight were sent in.[2] Two helicopters could not navigate through a very fine sand cloud (a haboob) which forced one helicopter to land and the other to return to the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN-68). Six helicopters reached the initial rendezvous point, Desert One, but one of them had damaged its hydraulic system. The spares were on one of the two helicopters that had aborted flight. From the early planning stages it had been determined that any less than 6 operational helicopters ready to leave Desert One would be an automatic mission abort, even though only 4 were absolutely needed for the day 2 operation.[2] In a move still debated today,[3] the commanders on the scene decided to abort the mission. As the U.S. force prepared to leave Iran, a refueling accident led to one helicopter and a C-130 Hercules transport aircraft being destroyed[2], the remaining helicopters being left behind, and the deaths of eight American servicemen. Operation Eagle Claw was one of the first missions conducted by Delta Force.[4]
