    Kerry plans Iran visit:

    He seems not to appreciate that at this very moment the beleaguered people of Iran are giving their lives in the cause of democracy and freedom and is not only against the natural course of history, but choosing to side with the forces of evil, yet again.
    What happened to non-interferance in Iranian's affairs?

    Not that the IRI ever had any moral standing, but post-Neda, the IRI has lost all vestiges of legitimacy, and now, people like Kerry trying to restore some of that lost legitimacy.

  3. Kerry visiting Iran doesn't give it legitimacy, iranians do. Those protestors singing praise for khomeini and supporting one of his people, mousavi, give it more legitimacy than anybody else.

    And they better hope kerry is successful, for their sake.

    Serioulsy, the US can't do jack w/o being blamed. Non-interferce? Ok. Oh wait, you need to suppot the green movement! you dicator lovers! there's nothing the US can actually do, excdpt endanger world security by not solving the nuclear issue, but hey they can 'support' the green movement with emotional speeches and not negotionating with their government! hooray1

    And regarding the blog post, perhaps you should try posting something about the christians suffering under muslim intolerence in palestine, professor cole.

    Compassion and calls for justice only apply when your enemies are involved, I guess.
