It's Ok for countries like the Soviet Union to mess around in third world countries, but the US shouldn't have! Because in most of the countries you listed, the Soviets were there, too.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but putting the blinders on like you are isn't right, either.

Right or wrong, they do volunteer, good thing they do, because if these people stopped volunteering...some of us wouldn't be on here talking about this.

Here's your explanation: The mullahs in Iran are executing Iranian citizens for speaking out against the corrupt election results in their country.
And the response from our "courageous" president Obama and speaker Pelosi has been nothing but deafening silence.
Compare that to President Reagan standing at the foot of the Berlin Wall calling out Gorbachev.
Thankfully, Obama will be gone by Nov. 2012.

It explains nothing. Just another Obama basher come to 'save' us all. The difference between our relationship with Iran and our relationship with the former USSR at the time of Reagan's speech is huge. Reagan's words did not fall on deaf ears, whereas if Obama where to take a simular stance and tone with Iran, it would be used against us in less than a heartbeat. The secret of good diplomacy is the same as the secret of good comedy: TIMING!
