It seems the only people supporting the current affairs in Iran are the shrinking, not growing, fundamentalists. If truth were said and the billions of dollars of some western companies of oil profits were not in question, no doubt the misery of the Iranian people would be shared more in the medias of the world. The old book of these kind of politics will hopefully and successfully be thrown out in the second term of the current US administration. As an active participating nation, Iran has so much more to offer the global economy, that I doubt those few dollars would be missed if any change to its current setting at all. Why cant it be that all remains, but basic human rights could as well be respected. In what 7th century backward thinking mind, do people have to die in 1000s for their yearnings for intellectual freedom, to protect the powers of the few over land and profits, that has nothing to do with the first anyway. Why are those connections between everyday people and oil profits are even in existence today. With all respects to all the oppressed people everywhere, global or regional wars are not the answer to their current situation. Global support perhaps, and a bit of push, to make them stand out in millions and demand their basic long withheld freedoms. We know Sleeping with the devil begs for hell. Its simple. The ones looking to complicate this simplicity with excuses are selling something. Rest assured, pockets won’t change, people can and there is where win win can finally have a meaning.
