What some people in the USA want is to encourage the people in Iran to risk their lives to set up a democracy in that country similar to what is the experience here.
I question I want to ask is why?
The USA has been a democracy for three hundred years but what has that meant? It has meant with the most resources available to any country we are unable to educate our children, we have an economy in crisis with a gigantic national debt, we use the most drugs and have the highest rates of crime and divorce.
The city of New Orleans has not yet recovered from the hurricane that struck that city several years ago.
Why do we feel that we have the right to be promoting a way of life that has not worked for us, we are no nearer to achieving a functioning democracy that we were three hundred years ago.
What gives us the right to tell members of another sovereign nation how to solve their problems when we are completely incapable of solving our own?
It is the Dick Cheney attitude, for six years he was in power and made a complete mess of things, of everything but now he knows all the answers?
Give me a break and give the people of Iran a break and the right to work out their own destinies.
The people of America have no right to be telling anyone how to govern because the country is in a complete mess.
We should focus on fixing our own problems and when we got it right then we export it, not the other way round.Look at the mess we made in Iraq, we can teach the world to dance to the democratic tune after we learn that secret not before.
