    Will the present Iranian regime fall this year and the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party find themselves on the wrong side of the issue? Time will tell I'm guessing.
    It's worth noticing where they stand before the twist...:eusa_whistle:

    Not only has the U.S. government not “born witness” to the people’s struggle in Iran, the Democrats are working to undermine it. U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has announced his intention to push forward potentially crippling U.S. sanctions against Iran’s oil imports (Iran cannot refine all of the oil it needs, and must import 40 percent). If realized, this action would amount to an act of war.

    If th US comes out on the side of the revolutionaries then the Iranian government will claim the revolution is just a US lead revolt. This will give them grounds to squash it and blame the US.

    Of course the Republicans would have barged into that one, but Obama prefers to make it an international response.

    Score one for Obama

    So you think it's a good idea to thwart sanctions under the current nuclear threat

    haven't republicans proven that they are always wrong? Are they completely unaware that the last 8 years under peewee bush recorded the worst foreign policy decisions in our history? Why are they so uninformed?

    So we're clear, Obama and the Democratic party don't support the revolutionaries.

    George, Dick and Don did a fine job with foreign policy. Executed Saddam Hussein and his sons, Made a terrorist honey pot out of Iraq, boxed in Iran in the east with the Afghan occupation and protected the free flow of oil out of the Persian gulf a grave security concern for America. And thats just the Middle East.

    Foreign Policy A+

    Really? Or maybe it's that we mess up the opposition's ability to operate if we become associated with their protests
