    Re: Unimaginable Horror In Tehran Today (Baharestan Square Massacre)

    Matthew Yglesias put it best in the American Prospect today: "Conservative hawks, who just a few weeks ago were eager to drop bombs on Iran, have not hesitated to take advantage of the recent political unrest to launch criticisms on President Barack Obama for being insufficiently concerned with the welfare of the Iranian people."

    You'll have to forgive me if I'm a bit skeptical that some of our resident warhawks are suddenly concerned about the welfare of the Iranian people and don't have any ulterior motives. Furthermore, I have seen absolutely NO evidence that the Iranians actually want the United States to get involved in the situation, and I have seen absolutely NO evidence that the Iranians are interested in fighting a bloody civil war against their government.

    Whatever happens in Iran is still up to Iranians to determine, as it should be.

    I can't. This is important.

    They are already blaming the U.S. and demanding apologies, who gives a **** what the Mullahs say THEY'RE SLAUGHTERING PEOPLE IN THE STREETS!!!

    They need RPGs, Javelins, and Stingers first or they'll get slaughtered by helicopter gunships, armored patrol vehicles, and tanks.

    They need to know the USA will back them if they go for the guns.

    Eyewitness reports, the foreign press is on lockdown in Iran.

    A strategic base of operations in Iraq certainly was an unstated objective though we did already have military and air bases in Kuwait, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan.

    **** off, if we cared for human life, why are we not stopping massacres, genocides in the world. Our Soldiers are good enough to be killed for when it comes to economic interests but not to improve the lives of others. Why does the West throw away so much food and consume so much when there are parts of the world who are dying for food?
    Why are drug companies allowed to charge such ridiculous prices making it impossible for treatment to be affordable?

    The West is no more moral than any other country when it comes to war. We just lie more and fool ourselves into thinking we have a moral high ground.
    UK says it does not torture, sure. But it sure as hell loves passing people onto Arab countries who do torture. Who does the blame lie with? With UK ofc.

    Just ... don't get me started on Iraq
    Um again the Sudan has a ****load of oil.

    Annual exports of 282,100 bbl/day.

    What about the girl in the OP begging for help? Why do you think the demonstrators signs are in English not Farsi?
