    Bari Weiss and David Feith: Denying the Green Revolution - WSJ.com

    The Obama administration has decided, as a way of placating the worst dictatorial filth of the earth - the IRI leadership - to cease supporting the democracy-seeking people of iran in their quest for freedom.

    This turns so many myths on their head, and exposes the Left in the US as the frauds they are: "we only support democracy when WE want to," and when leaders the Far Left media hates (like Bush) support democracy, its evil.

    There is no reason for the US to not continue supporting these democracy advocates - isn't that the fundamental goal of US foreign policy? - who are the shining light of what we in this country are supposed to be about. The terrorist filth that is the IRI government will never cease its nuclear weapons program, and undermining allies is certainly not going to grant further legitimacy or credibility to the US.

    And didn't we all hear how Obama was going to lead the world into a more multilateral, diplomatic environment of peace and freedom?

    How will that happen with him destroying the overwhelmed voices of democracy in iran?

    Good point

    How do you suggest we go about supporting the IRI and what do you think the consequences of our support will be?

    As a supporter of the US Constitution and the individual liberty that it promises, I wouldn't support democracy ANYWHERE. Ever. Especially in Iran.

    Here is a quick reminder for Sunni Man ~ the American public overwhelmingly supports the right of Israel to exist right where it is existing.

    You gotta love the right wing.

    First, they want to unite the Arab world behind Iran against us.

    And worse, they are on the WRONG side. The people in Iran who are protesting are the "Left".

    And why are they protesting? Because they want religion OUT of government. That's right, they want religion OUT of government. Exactly the same as the left wants here.

    The right wing in this country wants Christianity declared the "National Religion". They want "mystical creation" taught in public schools as an alternative to science. They want a pledge to an imaginary God. They want religious and occult symbols in public places. They want to outlaw certain minorities because their occult text says those people are "bad". THIS IS IRAN. This is what the people of Iran are protesting. Could they be any more blind. Are they running on "stupid"?

    Read "The Grand Chessboard" by Zbigniew Brzezinski.

    Iran's leadership needs to be eliminated and replaced if we want 100% assurance that Russia will not re-establish a power center in Central Asia.

    So.... we need our media to demonize Iran and to play ball with the globalists who accuse them of having WMD's. Just like we did with Iraq. We also need our radio propagandists to constantly give Iranians grief and accuse them of every possible humanitarian and religious crime so that otherwise normal, decent, compassionate Americans will hate them and will accept killing them as a worthwhile endeavor. That's how propaganda works.

    But before you can understand all of that, you really need to sit down and read the book. It was written in 1998 by Obama's most senior foreign policy advisor. In fact, half of the policy recommendations were carried out by the Bush White House. Obama is continuing the same job.

    Well considering we are a Republic, supportng Democracy isnt necessarily the best move. But i hope they are supportng freedom rather than dictatorship
