Thank you Mr. Hardy.
Final point being England, Germany, Russia, France, Japan and others are making too much money off of cheap Iranian oil to aid in the masses protesting against the regime. (My what a difference considering they aided and funded the outright overthrow of the Shah---especially English who gave 24 hour free-air time to Khomeini because they were so-called promoting democracy--however, the BBC is now ridiculing democratic forces in the country).
How can a revolution happen in Iran even with 80 percent of the people against the regime when 90 percent of the world is siding with the Mullahs for selfish intentions?
Only friend Iranian people have right now are half-heartedly the US and Israel.
How are you going to win that war?

The picture I have, and it may be wrong, is that throughout Europe, there are increasing numbers of groups of pro-democracy in IRAN organizations or supporters. That Iran stories are disseminated through their newspapers to a much greater degree than ours. If true, this is what shaped public opinion and eventually put pressure on gov'ts in Europe, to adopt the stand they took on the U.S. over Iraq. Couldn't it then do the same to re-shape opinion
of their gov'ts toward the mullahs and the Regime?

...How are you going to win that war?...
We are fortunate that president Bush supports the people of Iran in their struggle with the Islamic regime of Iran. But he needs public support.
We can and must continue to do everything possible to educate the public and the media of the need to support the Iranian people.
One of the ways we can do this is by contacting the media.
The media does respond to our emails. We were effective when we asked for more coverage of the student protests, last month.
I heard Fox News reporting yesterday that they were receiving a "huge" number of emails on a story. He said they had received several thousand.
If we make a concerted effort to contact the media on important breaking stories, the FR community could easily send thousands of emails. This would certainly get the attention of the media.
I have a lot more thoughts on the topic but this is a start.
