I asked to be put on the ping list recently and am so grateful for this thread. My heart breaks for these brave and proud people and I pray for their freedom.
I just had a phone call where I found myself quoting from this site and discussing the photos, defending the Iranians and regime change, and trying to educate other Americans to stand with the Iranians for their freedom.
Having said that, I plead ignorance regarding what is, or more importantly, what is not, happening. If someone could briefly fill me in as to why nothing is being done to help the Iranians with the stand they are taking. President Bush said we would stand with them as they stood for their freedom.
Why is that ridiculous Amnesty Int'l. running their mouth about terrorist accusations at Gitmo instead of screaming bloody murder about what is happening in Iran?
I apologize for just not getting it, and don't know what I am missing, as I am quite new at following this situation. Thank you for any information to help me understand.

(I - L O V E - my attitude problem!)
Brit Hume had a man on tonight who specializes in Iran (can't recall name - I was cooking dinner), and the man was explaining how the people of Iran are sick and tired of being oppressed. He gets all sorts of information from emails, blogs, etc and the people are disgusted with the oppression and ready to revolt.
He said the Bush administration and Condi Rice are missing a golden opportunity to contribute to the revolution by demanding the mullahs move aside.
He also said Iranians are being arrested, beaten, tortured, than allowed to go home for a couple of days (to "impress" their friends and family how horrible the beatings are and to discourage further uprisings). After the freedom fighter has been home for a couple of days they COME BACK AND RE-ARREST THEM. (Talk about a moral killer!)
Nevertheless, the Iranians are stirring and bucking the authorities. I hope and pray our CIA is in there helping them overcome that 12th century repression because these people are hungry for freedom!
Keep an eye on Dr. Zin's pings. He has great stuff!
Oh.... And welcome to FR.

(Yo, Hitlary... BRING IT ON!)
Thanks for doing that!
All we Iranians need is moral support from you in that side of the world to topple the regime of Mullahs ASAP
