Obama’s Shame: Revolution Continues in Iran, Sound of Silence from White House

When Iranian lovers of liberty and democracy decided that the mad Mullahs had persecuted, tortured and killed them long enough, and organized protest after protest against their rule, you expected America to come out in support of them. After all, the “land of the free and the home of the brave” has always been an example and inspiration to all those who love freedom.

Sadly, no word of support came from the White House. Instead of praising the brave Iranians protesting against the Islamo-fascist thugs who have oppressed them for three decades already, President Obama produced nothing but the sound of silence. Worse yet, he gave one of his allies, Senator John Kerry, permission to visit Iran next year. This even though such a visit will widely be interpreted as a sign of support for the mad Mullahs and as a very public betrayal of the leaders of the Green Revolution.

Now, some argue that Obama is right to cloud himself in silence because if he speaks out against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and in favor of (recently deceased) Ayatollah Montazeri’s followers, the latter will be portrayed as puppets of the West and enemies of Iran.

    We should be careful to understand what the protesters want before we take up their cause. Understanding the politics in Iran is not so simple as protesters being “freedom fighters”…

    If you don’t understand the “green party” and its’ goals, you may not want to cheer too loudly.

    The current “Green” leader may be more anti American than Ahmadinejad. he has already warned Obama not to interferes… That should tell you something.

    B-b-but what if the other nations in school think America is weak because daddy Obama won’t say what the enlightened know-it-alls tell him to do?!

    Sigh, if only John McMAN was president and tried to Churchhill up the place at every opportunity…

    The House voted overwhelmingly to implement new sanctions against Iran in retaliation for its saber-rattling over building a nuclear weapons arsenal.

    In response…..

    , the Obama administration had asked the Senate to hold off on approving new sanctions on Iran until early next year.

    Yes to many people even his own packed House of Representatives the President is doing nothing of substance with regards to Iran.

    In response…..

    he UN no longer has any reason to wait to consider new sanctions on Iran if it does not respond to concerns over its nuclear programme, France says.

    In times past it was Bush asking for sanctions and the rest of the world saying hold on now.

    Today its the world asking for Sanctions including our own congress and Obama saying…now hold on.

    Yes he is doing nothing. It was the signature of Jimmy Carter and its fast becoming the signature of this President.
