I have been following Dennis McCann's article on the protests swelling the streets of cities in Iran, originally held in support of Egypt and Tunisia, that has developed into a revival of the Green Movement, originally focused on toppling the allegedly improperly elected presdient of Iran. Now the focus seems more on toppling the theocratic government of Iran and those that are the puppetmasters behind the Presdient.
The question, heard on a CNN roundtable today, is should the U.S. say anything? I'm not asking if we should be prepared to go in and help the Iranians-that is clearly a bad idea. They said that the U.S. lost an opportunity in 2009 by not really jumping into the verbal fray at that time. Personally, I htink that with our 'reputation' it's better that the U.S. Government sit on the sidelines unless asked, after this is all over with and a new governemnt, of the people of Iran, is established. I don't think ther eis any way of the U.S. not being accused of meddling or nation-building if we were to act at this point.
That being said, I encourage everyone to support the movement in Iran, join the movement on Facebook and other social media outlets, listen in on Twitter, send notes, e-mails and letters to the MSM and espeically the News Services that are barely covering this that may well be a pivotal moment in the history of the 21st Century.
