Obama's Approach on Iran
I support his approach to the situation in Iran. People there are not happy with the election results, so they are taking it to the streets. Coverage of the events are getting more and more restricted all the time, with news outlets relying on cell phone videos to get an idea what is going on. The president is staying quiet about this, while the GOP on the other hand along with John McCain, are quick to denounce the ruling regime, making the same mistake politicians did back in the 1950s when Mossadegh was replaced by the Shah. Iran is a sovereign nation and the president said that it is up to the Iranian people to decide what they want. For the first time in a long time, the USA is acting more civilized under Obama's leadership. And like they say at the local Fox 24 station, "it's about time!"
