Thursday Perspective - Green Twitter Pictures


Do you have a green twitter picture?  If you do, then you obviously have an opinion about what's going on in Iran.

Without creating a bias, what are your thoughts about the situation in Tehran?

  • Is it the US obligation to step in to help? If so, at what capacity?
  • If the US doesn't step in, what do you think will happen?
  • Who are the true victims of this situation?
  • Why do you think media is being restricted? Twitter, Internet, Cell Phone?  
  • What is this caused by? -- religion, greed, poverty, etc?
Let me know your thoughts!

  2. Shoot I'll be the first to jump in and say something. I think it is our place to go over there and "interfere" as Ahmadinejad says. The Iran people are trying to have a fair democratic election and their government is corrupt not allowing them to do so. I really don't know to what capacity we should step in but I know that we do need to do something to create a new support system and help the people elect who they want to be eleceted so they don't have a maniac in office whihc brings me to my next point.

    If we don't step in, Ahmadinejad is going to rise in power and probably end up siding with our enemies in N. Korea. He has already issused this statement to Obama. "Do you want to speak (with Iran) with this tone? If that is your stance then what is left to talk about,I hope you avoid interfering in Iran's affairs and express your regret in a way that the Iranian nation is informed of it."

    Now he wants Obama to take back what he said about Iran and the election. It looks to me like Obama is a little scared right now and doesn't know exactly what to do. If he has followed his previous actions, he will apologize to him and thus take a super passive approach to a rising problem in the middle east.

    I have had the privilege of being overseas for about a month and seen how foreigners view us. No matter how much some of them hate us, they DO watch what America does. They watch what we do, and they watch what our president does because they know that we have the strongest nation in the world and are looking for guidance through an uncertain time.

    I am sick of Obama's laid back approach to handling things. Apologizing to other nations for Americans being arrogant and dismissive, negotiating with terrorists, and asking homicidal leaders to pretty pretty please disarm your missiles pointed at us has not seemed to work too well so far.

    Ahmadinejad also issued this statement. "Mr. Obama made a mistake to say those things ... our question is why he fell into this trap and said things that previously (former U.S. President George W.) Bush used to say,"

    Hmmmm maybe Bush did know what he was talking about. Merely talking about a situation isn't going to get anything done. I would hope that Obama follows suit and strengthens his foreign policy a little bit. His little apology act has not worked thus far, why wait for something like N. Korea, or Iran to escalate any further.
