    1. And the US leadership doesn't?

    2. and the US leadership doesn't crack down on it's own population with opressive laws, domestic policies that breed poverty and torture of foreigners in the name of US interests?

    3. remind me please that story with "stolen" Bush elections?

    Isn't it time the US power elites stopped holding US people for stoopid? If they are really concerned for the welfare of human species, why don't they start with their own country -- the US?

    This is bad, very bad. It sends a message to the Ahmadinejad administration that we don't care what he does to his people who have taken to the streets in peaceful protest. We should not be fighting the battles of the people of Iran, but we ought to be PUBLICIZING THEM and WATCHING.

    This is a huge mistake by the Obama administration, imo.
    My guess is that the decision might have something to do with the resumption of negotiations over Iran's nuclear program. The Administration may believe that such a move would increase prospects for success in those negotiations and, as such, the net benefits would be positive given the stakes involved in the nuclear discussions.

    Needless to say, it is not clear whether such a decision will actually increase prospects for a positive outcome. The work of the group in question was relatively peripheral compared to the actual interests involved in the nuclear discussions. I suspect the success or failure of the talks will rest strictly on whether the core needs/critical interests of the parties can reasonably be accommodated.

    How on earth can the Logan act stop Congress funding such an organisation? Congress funds freaking Israel via earmarks!! So it is a no no to fund an organisation that is against the sitting Iranian government, but it is no problem to give billions to Israel..

    Do you even know the Logan act? Is Congress not the ultimate authority of the USA?

    What problems?? It was simply a close vote in Florida, nothing more and nothing less.

    That's not what some say...

    And in any case, don't you see how your collective psychology works? When it's disputed election in a country that is not under the US heel, -- its a humanitarian disaster that needs urgent monitoring and "liberating" expedition! When it's disputed ellection in the US or a country firmly under the US control, -- its nothing, hiccups of democracy at the most.

    Some say there are martians flying around the Earth. Some say Bush personally bombed the WTC towers. Some say we didn't land on the moon.

    What's your point? That there are looney conspiracy theories and people that lap it up? We already knew that. You are living proof.

    The US election wasn't disputed. We simply recounted the votes to be sure that the correct and actual winner was named. Case closed.

    I don't recall seeing jackbooted thugs shooting innocent women and bashing in people's heads in Miami or Orlando as we saw in Tehran. Did you??
