Iran Links!

"In your opening remarks, sir, you said about Iran that you were appalled and outraged. What took you so long?"--Major Garrett

--The Women of Iran

--Iran - why we are rooting for the protesters
Patrick quotes Michael Totten:
Are those protesting true believers in democracy? We do not know, because they have never been given the chance. What we do know is that they reject the dishonesty of a repressive theocracy. For that reason alone, we should stand with them.

Let us weep for Iran. Let us cheer the Iranians.
And concludes with his own thoughts:
And, in the case of Iran, "regime" means both religion and politics. Young Iranis are rejecting both. What's happening in Iran bodes well for all of us.

--Ouch! John McCain Not Sure Who Obama's Siding With In Iran
An excerpt:
"I know what side I'm on," McCain cut in. "I'm on the side of the people. I'm not on Ahmadinejad's side or Mousavi. I'm on the side of the Iranian people and I'm on the right side of history. And I'm not going to walk on the other side of the street while people are being killed and beaten in the streets of Iran."

McCain said Obama's reaction wasn't equal to the situation. "We can't sit by and watch a film clip on television of a young woman bleeding to death and say that we're worried about the Iranian reaction or our ability to negotiate with them. We have to stand up for those people," he said.
