    One good message that was missing from Dear Leader's statement: Release the journalists; let the story of your people be told.
    Obama's oratory prowess is his greatest and most effective weapon. This is the one time his grandiloquence can actually accomplish something beneficial and tangible. He needs to take a bold and principled stance in support of liberty or he will be judged very harshly by history, and rightfully so. The ideological war is often times as important, if not more so, than the physical war. Reagan understood this, Obama should look to his example.

    This is one issue where conservatives, libertarians, and liberals alike want the same thing e.g., Iranian self-determination. I truly hope the President can help them actualize this dream. I wish him wisdom and strength. This is more important than politics...this is one of the most important moments in world history.

    Weakened regime best result for US
    THE Iranian regime will almost certainly reassert full control over the country in the next few days, but it will emerge from this crisis seriously weakened.

    One objective consequence of the uprising of democratic protest and frustration among Iran's population is that the regime has lost a great deal of legitimacy, internally and internationally.

    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, recently the strutting peacock of the Middle East exuding arrogance and self-confidence, will be a vastly diminished figure, plainly at odds with his own society.

    In many ways, a savagely weakened Iranian regime is the best result Israel and the US could have wished for.

    I would say they have done more than enough
