    Most of the liberals would either make it sound like they're bad things or give Pres. Obama the credit.
    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    The U.S. has an opportunity to get something right with regard to it's policy towards Iran. Despite how some people on here view Iran, the problem is not the Iranian people, it's the Iranian government. The population has been desperate for a change for years. The U.S. should find ways to assist the citizens of Iran to bring an end to clerical rule on their own terms. Iranians have overthrown a repressive regime before, they can do it again. Most Iranians do not want or pursue conflict with the U.S. There was a time when there was genuine friendship between the U.S. and Iran, long before we helped the British overthrew the government because we didn't want them nationalizing their oil.

    I hope this President doesn't become impulsive and attempt some kind of military intervention. We start bombing Iran, regardless of the reason, Iranians will re-direct their hostility from the Supreme Counsel towards America. I hope the west finds a way to support the Iranian people in changing their nation for the better.
    Awwww that really sucks....for Obama.

    All that effort and work that went into not only legitimizing the Iranian regime, but that went into ensuring they recieved a cash windfall to boot

    That cash was no doubt spent on its people and to further Irans humanitarian endeavors...

    Marie Harf was on Fox this weekend and claimed Obama's reluctance to acknoweldge and support the 2009 protestors was because the Iranian protesters told the Obama administration to NOT publicly and openly support their rebellion.

    Huh ??!! Its Marie Harf so Ill let that one slide. I have a weakness for extremely hot blondes who rock the sexy Librarian look, but still

    I agree that the Obama strategy for dealing with Iran failed. Just like presidents that came before him. That's why I'm saying we have opportunity to get it right this time.
