- Secretary of State under President James
- Cyrus Vance was a man quick to appease
and slow to react. He seemed so weak in
response to the spread of Soviet
aggression that I always saw him as the
American version of Neville Chamberlain.
Vance was almost painfully shy. Vance was
completely unsuited to work with Carter.
Carter was so inherently weak that with a
weak secretary our government had serious

to invade Afghanistan. Prior to the
invasion of Afghanistan Russia
unofficially asked what our reaction
would be to the invasion. Vance had
Hodding Carter deliver a stern warning
not to invade. The Russians assumed since
the warning came from an aide Vance was
really signaling them we would not
seriously object to an invasion. So to a
great extent Vance's shyness was the
cause of the Afghan war.

- Vase Carpets are a Persian Carpet
defined by a particular
structure. The weave uses wool warps and
the wefts are two rigid wool singles,
then sinuous silk or cotton singles and
then two rigid wool singles. Vase carpets
are generally attributed to Kerman because
of similar construction in 19th century
Kermani carpets. Recent evidence and a
review of the older evidence shows that
Kerman is unlikely and the probable place
of origin for the vase carpets is
Khorasan Province in both Mashad and
Sabzevar in the sixteenth century. The
carpets most likely originated in the
workshops of Ibrahim Mirza.
