Is President Obama too smart to repeat history?
This is an dream I might have had:
Oh, what an idiot he has turned out to be! President Obama has called for the youth in Iran to take to the streets and fight for Democracy and overthrow their government. The young listened to Obama and they challenged the theocracy. The theocracy brought out the heavy arms and crushed the revolution and many young have died. And the United States has done nothing. What could we do? Invade Iran? Obama. What a fool...oh, wait, this isn't breaking news. I'm reading the history of President George H. W. Bush and his urging the Kurds to up rise against Saddam after Desert Storm. They listened and Saddam crushed them and we stood by and did nothing.
Is this what the GOP would have us do in Iran? What do they think we should do? Invade Iran? Cut off diplomatic relations? We don't really have any. And wouldn't that only serve the end goal of Ahmadinejad?
Those who think President Obama should be doing more regarding the protests in Iran had better outline for us exactly what our response should be when the protesters are crushed.
