Do you think the American government should be passing resolutions or just keep quiet and only urge restraint in use of force?
creature saidI just think it's a waste for Congress to pass the resolutions. What real, constructive purpose do they serve? It looks to me like it's self-serving.
Lostboy saidthere is no debate to be had here: America OBVIOUSLY needs to keep its mouth closed as ANY statement of support for the moderates will be used by the conservatives to tarnish the moderates as foreign pawns.
Remember what happened when Bush the Elder urged the Shiites to rise against Saddam Hussein in Iraq? Massacres. Yay for right wing rhetoric. It may make a few stupid people feel better about themselves, but the cost is likely to be horrible.
coolarmydude saidIt would be a stonger statement if we could get Jordan and Egypt, amongst other Arab nations, to come out in support of the protestors. Obama's speech in Cairo was intended to precipitate a new way of dealing with the extremism in the Middle East and it's time Arab nations to start walking the walk on these types of issues.

Caslon11000 saidWith the use of twitter and phone vids, people can see that this is Iranian bred.But on the other hand, people accessing Twitter in Iran can see that people in the US and the world offer their support for what the demonstrators are doing.
coolarmydude saidwrustle said, "Iran is not an Arab nation."
I didn't say Iran was. I said Jordan and Egypt amongst other Arab Nations. The point of the policy on Iran is to contain Ahmajenidad's rhetoric and in order to do that, he needs to be rebuked by the Middle East. He tries to seek an alliance with the extreme factions of the Middle East with his contempt against Israel.
