    Last I heard, the US still had a democracy with guaranted rights. The US is still a republic. We elect a President, not an emporor. The President's powers do not include overthrow of foreign govs. When my country is right, I support the policy. When it is wrong, I am abliged to work to right the wrong. Read a little history. There is a direct connection between the hostages and Eisenhower's overthrow of the Iranian republic in the fiftys. It was not right for the Iranians to take the hostages. It was equally wrong for the US to overthrow the republic in favor of a monarchy who behaved no better than Saddam. Saddam was armed by the US in the 80s and got his WMDs from the US. That you cannot identify one single Presidency of exception for the time period speaks volumes. Think of the physics principle that for every action there is a reaction. It works in human affairs, too.
