Reagan on the Shahanshah

This is President Reagan speaking about the late Shah of Iran in summer of 1980 months before the election. And I've always wondered what would have been the outcome of the Islamic revolt of 1979 had there been a Republican president in the White House instead of dimwit Jimmy Carter. I'm sure the outcome would have been extremely different.
    "I did think that it was a blot on our record that we let him down..."

If only we could go back and change that chapter of history.
What a different world this would be.
