I know a lot of people have been spending a lot of time on Iran - me notsomuch.
The reason is that I have long held that if the Iranians really want a free society, then they need to earn it just like America did - revolution.
They blew it with the '79 revolution, so they shouldn't expect anyone else to correct their mistake.
I wish the young Iranians well, but they will need to do this themselves. I'll support them, but that is about it. I don't want my nation doing much more than that either. No one will thank us for it in the long run if we did anyway.
Like a car, you will enjoy and take better care of something you buy yourself. The price of freedom is always paid in blood.
