I await further developments with open mind and arms.
UPDATE: Andy Bostom writes me:
” according to our sources the majority of Iranians want out from under their oppressive theocracy and would rather have America as an ally”
Pew published data last May indicating 83% of Iranians still want the Sharia; Gallup PUBLISHED DATA for Feb of 2013 showing that at the height of the sanctions, 62% of Iranians wanted the govt to forge ahead with the nukes program–which of course has been bolstered now by the regime’s “negotiations jihad”
TT: I must bow to the insight of Andy Bostom on the situation, if the facts are indeed as he says, and I have no reason to doubt his word, then the reality speaks differently. No amount of US support for a normal democratic Iran will bring it about. I hope my friends who are pushing this understands my position, it’s nothing personal.
Americans Speak Directly to Iranian Citizens: Fight To Take Your Country Back
iCaucus was founded on the principles of speaking and exposing the truth, following the money, and holding our representation accountable to We The People of the United States. In keeping with that mission we educate and hold our representatives accountable on the issues, including foreign policy. The following press release and statement was approved by 85% of iCaucus members and affiliate group members through a voting process in keeping with our bylaws. Whenever a government fails to represent it’s people, it is incumbent upon the citizens to take action on their own effectively bypassing the government. It’s important to note that the “apology” contained in this statement is not an apology for America, but an apology based on interference the Progressives in our government have perpetrated on the citizens of another country. The very same Progressives from both sides of the aisle that have sought to remove our Constitutional freedoms.
Why is this important? For two reasons; First, contrary to the biased media who blasts us with video of demonstrations chanting “Death to America” and burning American flags, according to our sources the majority of Iranians want out from under their oppressive theocracy and would rather have America as an ally. Second, what effect the Iranian people have against their regime affects the rest of the region and us as well. All over the world the citizens have been rising up against the Progressives, Socialists, Marxists, Mullahs, and Muslim Brotherhood run governments. We, the citizens of the United States, have watched our own government back terrorists and terrorist organizations masking themselves as protestors and freedom fighters. There were two exceptions: the Iranian people and the effort to oust President Morsi (proven ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist organizations) in Egypt. Simultaneously, the Progressives in our country have passed laws that violate our basic freedoms, making the Bill of Rights null and void. Indefinite Detention and drone use on American citizens are some of the most egregious.
The following is what has been released as of today:
