Fire in the Streets, the Iranian Freedom Movement
The Iranian people are both a proud and independent culture. Knowing several personally I can honestly say they are rational and caring, with the same values, aspirations, and desires we proud and independent Americans hold dear.
The world is now seeing the true spirit of the people of Persia. A spirit, that after thirty one years of an oppressive and tyrannical Theocracy has had enough. The demonstrations by opponents to the current regime is all one needs to see to know time is on the side of the people of Iran.
They however need the support of those who truly love freedom and despise authoritarian and oppressive tyrannical government. It is time for Governments that truly respect the rights of the individual, including their right to live out their lives as free and independent agents, to both condemn the Iranian goverbment andd supportthe efforts of the freedom loving opposition.
Where will the Obama administration and the U.S. government stand? Only time will tell. The current situation in Iran provide President Obama, the United States , and the rest of the free world an oppurtunity to do the right thing. Lets hope they do.
