Iran - an uncertain path to tomorrow

Both Ahmadinejad and Mousavi have similar views on the Great Satan (which would be more or less all of you, if you're reading this blog anywhere in the world). Mir Hossein Mousavi was endorsed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei and vowed to continue Iran's march toward the construction of nuclear weapons. Ahmadinejad won on what are held to be rigged elections, Iranians demonstrated in the streets and the government is silencing them.

President Obama expressed his profound national guilt for the CIA's coup in 1953 that prevented the Soviet Union from dominating and perhaps annexing Iran in Cairo a few days ago. If he is as guilty as he claims to be, why did Vice President (Slow) Joe Biden say, "We're going to withhold comment for a few days." on Meet the Press yesterday? Why didn't the President come out an encourage the Iranian people who voted for a future that didn't include Ahmadinejad? Wouldn't that have assuaged his guilt?

The President of the United States is remaining mute on the subject of the Iranian elections. I wonder if THAT will make him feel guilty?

I thought it was nice that Mousavi campaigned with his wife. Refreshing to see a woman's face in that part of the world. And public speaking--all the better.

Obama tells fibs. Biden can't even tell time.
