    There is a brave, persistent opposition in Iran that represents at least the hope of freedom for the Persian people and significantly greater peace and security for the world.

    And what is our spineless, dithering president doing to support and encourage them? The same thing he did to 'earn' the Nobel Prize - nothing.

    Perhaps nothing is better in this case. At least he's not supporting communism like in the Honduras.

      Good point. Quite a standard he's set for himself.

    I've met a lot of Iranian people over the years and they've always struck me as being well educated and very straight-forward and honorable.


    I had a student years ago who had gone on a 'goodwill' exchange program to study in Greece for a year or two. While there he converted to Greek Orthodox. I met him in the US as he was seeking asylum because at the end of the program Greece wouldn't let him stay and by law if he ever sets foot in Iran again he is to be beheaded.


    BEHEADED

    When he was (officially) notified of the 9/11 attacks, he was at the time speaking to either pre-schoolers or first graders. 
    He was so blank that he just continued reading a kiddies book.
    kindy = pre-school.

    In NZ, we (our public) find it hard to understand the political scene in the States. We tend to just accept the US Presidents and just criticize our leaders! lol
