President Obama campaigned on the concepts of change and hope. There is nothing that Iran needs right now more than those two things. First off, Mir Mousavi is not a liberal democrat, but he is certainly better than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Unfortunately, it appears that the clerics in the Islamic Republic have taken Obama's weakening stance regarding the Middle East as an opening to push forward with their jihadist agenda. Although Mousavi did not declare that he would end Iran's nuclear program, Ahmadinejad is determined to ramp it up. The Ayatollahs have sent terrorists to attack our soldiers and civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan.
President Obama's speech in Cairo made very clear that his administration is not willing to stand up for democratic processes in controversial regions. In fact, he stated that one form of government cannot be forced onto another. Perhaps we cannot even attempt to criticize the theocracy in Tehran for massive vote fraud, after all that's what 'they' want, so why force our beliefs on them? In addition, by backpedaling on the Iraq War and basically stating that the US will support dictators like in Egypt and Saudi Arabia just to keep 'stasis', we are looking at a fundamental betrayal of a pro-democracy policy.
So what can we do? Call out the mullahs on their false votes. Declare that the US 'cannot be responsible' for all of Israel's actions. Ahmadinejad's government will not receive recognition and new sanctions will be placed on the Islamic Republic.
