It would not be the worst thing we could do. Not at all. I don't know what you believe is happening here. This nation is in revolt of a government that the majority of the free world has identified as an oppressive, extremist, theocratic dictatorship that supports not only terrorism, but is pursuing nuclear weapons while at the same time proliferating the idea that Israel should or will be wiped off the map.
Arming this opposition movement would be far from the worst thing we could do. Are they only worth supporting if they can take their country back through peaceful means? Do we lose some political ammunition if these folks aren't getting gunned down with no practical way to fight back?
I don't know about you, but I want the Guardian Council and Ahmadinejad deposed, I want them struck from power, and if it takes funneling 50,000 assault rifles and 3,000 RPG's to them, well let me help load the trucks.
This isn't a romantic endeavor by the people of Iran, this is a bloody, violent uprising to three decades of dictatorial oppression. I never said we need to sponsor a "civil war." I said we should support this uprising. Arms and information are what these people need, not just good will and Twitter.
You feeling ok?
