    Since you are such a believer in unbridled use of military force in Gaza, I want to ask you this.

    You think the CIA overthrow of the Iranian government in 1953 was appropriate....Do you agree that the CIA overthrow of the Guatemalan government in 1954 was also a good thing?

    Do you agree with Reagan's policies toward Guatemala in the 1980s?  I have asked you this before.  You did not answer.   Will you answer now?
