    (CNN) -- Since June, he has been among thousands to take to the streets of Tehran in support of reform for his country.

    He has braved police violence and government reprisals. He has seen fellow opposition supporters felled by the batons and bullets of government security forces.

    But this 28-year-old university researcher says he has no choice.

    "I'm afraid but ... it's not a good way just to sit at home and do nothing," the protester, who asked to be identified only as "Hesam" for safety reasons, told CNN. "If I want to change the condition, if I want to have a better life, I have to do that. Yes, maybe it's a death wish."

    His wish is simple -- a democratic Iran.

    "We are -- like it or not -- (becoming) ... a multicultural and multireligious country," he said, calling for the same freedoms common to "most of the democracies of the world."

    It would appear Chrissie suffers from the "duped" effect.

    Yes, Obama has destroyed the mythology of Islamic extremism.

    As a result Hezbollah lost the election in Lebanon, Pakistan went after the Taliban, and the mullahs are in trouble in Iran, all without spending a penny or losing a single American soldier.

    It's amazing what a little smart diplomacy can do.

    When faced with the facts the right always falls back on personal insults.

    What's amazing is what a boatload of hallucinatory partisan hack driven non sequitur can do. :lol:
