I'm a lurker ATSian but a dedicated one none the less. i had to post my thoughts on this as it's starting to bug the hell out of me.
I love how the US (govenment) can make such a statement: it wasn't that long ago a man named Bush became leader without winning an election.
I also love how the US talk of helping the protesters when protesters (within US soil) don't receive any help when demonstrating against things, such
as the $billion bailout, not going to war (wither of them)... the list goes on i believe.
Why can't the US (and Britain) stay out of other people's back yards? you want to help corruption and unfair democracy? sort your own country out
first, then look into what's going on in Africa and then... then maybe make that dictator step and go in for the kill on a country that has Oil and
isn't afraid of your playground bully tactics.
Why are we so plainly forgetting Bush becoming President illegally and why are we forgetting that the westrn world publics demonstations are never
acted on and helped by the people who are craving to help the Iranian protesters?
I am not necessarily in favour of the ruling Iranian government, nor am i saying that the elections were fair/unfair - i don't have facts to make
such an assumption. what i do know is this is not our business.
money-hungry hypocrites running this side of the world
