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.
Wow and did you hear of that Math whiz kid who directly opposed the Iranian cleric leader? amazing! he has offers of sanctuary from other countries let's hope the people take their power back and rebuild their country a good way that is peaceful for the world.
Perhaps nothing is better in this case. At least he's not supporting communism like in the Honduras.
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.
Wow.... I can never forget the image Bush reading a kindy book after 9/11.....
At Least Letterman wanted to interview our PM.
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!

The September 11 event led to our outrage and invasion of Iraq. In what way the beheading of Foley is true versus another false flag operation? Who can assure me that it wasn't a fictitious scene to anger me? Since the Tonkin event that plunged the US in the desired Vietnam war? Who can assure me...
