Freedom Denied

“You’re seeing people looking at new possibilities,” Obama said in response to a question at the White House today. “Whoever ends up winning the election in Iran, the fact that there’s been a robust debate hopefully will help advance our ability to engage them in new ways.’ -Obama June 12, 2009

Whoever ends up winning? You must be joking, am I the only person who thought that the only possible outcome would have been an Ahmadinejad victory? Free and fair elections in Iran under Ahmadinejad and the ruling clerics, methinks not!

As protesters take to the street and rooftops, I cannot help but wonder where all this will go? Will the protest force freedom to ring or will their voices be denied as we have seen in so many places? Hopefully, the world will come to support the Iranian protesters. It is in everyone’s best interest that they prevail or at least get a true and strong voice in the Iranian government.

Ob will say the same in 4 years after he dose the same as Ahmadinejad. That way he is not give answer and will not chose, he will do the same with next elections.

While I agree that Obama will probably say the same thing the next time there are elections in no so free countries, I serverly doubt he will be around to do it again 4 years later. He is rapidly shaping up to be a one termer.
