After Iran’s attempts in squelching the protesters of its recent “election” turned violent, President Obama has finally chosen a side (that of freedom) rather than remain neutral.
When you’re the leader of the free world — regardless of your personal feelings and beliefs — you cannot stay on the sidelines. The leaders of Iran are finding themselves in the middle of a revolution, but this time it’s against them — the very ones that instigated the Islamic Revolution in Iran 30 years ago. If Iran is the Islamic Paradise, then why are the people upset and trying to overthrow it?
I was too young to remember Jimmy Carter and the Iran-Hostage Crisis, but it appears that Obama (or at least his advisers) have learned something from history. When you’re in a leadership position, you have to actually LEAD. You have to take a stand and make history, rather than let history happen while you helplessly watch.
Meanwhile, Britain is being forced to take a stronger stand with Iran as well, since Iran expelled two diplomats after Britain expelled two of theirs.
And now the question that everyone’s really asking: Where’s the French?!?!?
