    Do they also believe America's elections are none of the rest of the world's business?

    I can't speak for anyone but myself. However, I'm sure they feel, as I feel, that anyone who wants to can take an interest in America's election, just as anyone can take an interest in Iran's election. What they're saying is they don't want any intervention in Iran's election, or for our government to make any pronouncements concerning Iran's election. Just as we would not want anyone trying to intervene or making any pronouncements on our elections.

    Really? There were no pronouncements abot the our elections? What world do you live in?

    As for actions, we won't be doing anything to Iran about their election, anyone that thinks Obama would do anything is ignorant as hell. Further, we have no real evidence that anything we tried would not back fire and cause the protesters to side with their country.

    I didn't say nobody made any pronouncements concerning our elections, I said we wouldn't want them to. Though I can't say I recall any government heads or legislatures coming out with any official statements or legislation stating that our elections are rigged, unfair, and that Bush or Obama or whoever stole an election. Certainly private citizens have offered their opinions, just as we can say Iran's elections may have been unfair, but I don't recall hearing any official statements from any government.

    When America will stop "saving the world", US elections will be none of anyone's business.

    I think a better question to ask is how much input would you have given a damn about had Iran decided to vocally criticize Bush's victory in 2000... If you can answer this honestly then you should comprehend how much your opinion mattes to a voting Iranian.

    We do not complain about other Countries votes to impress the people or voters of that Country.
