US admires the Iranian people

The Iranian Regime: A Challenge to the World is the newest public information piece released by the US State Department's Bureau of Public Affairs with regards to the Iranian regime issues.
    "The international community is (also) speaking with one voice to the radical regime in Tehran. Iran is a nation held hostage by a small clerical elite that is isolating and repressing its people, and denying them basic liberties and human rights. The Iranian regime sponsors terrorists and is actively working to expand its influence in the region. The Iranian regime has advocated the destruction of our ally, Israel. And the Iranian regime is defying the world with its ambitions for nuclear weapons. America will continue to rally the world to confront these threats, and Iran's aggressive behavior and pursuit of nuclear weapons is increasing its international isolation."
    President George W. Bush

The United States admires and respects the Iranian people and supports their right to determine their own future. As the President has stated, the United States hopes one day soon to be the closest of friends with a free, sovereign and democratic Iran.

The United States:

  • Stands with the Iranian people as they confront a corrupt, repressive regime.
  • Supports their efforts to promote positive political change, economic prosperity, and freedom.
  • Offered assistance in the aftermath of earthquakes in 2003, 2005, and 2006.
  • Asked Congress to fund an ambitious program offering the Iranian people:
  1. unbiased information
  2. empowerment of local activists
  3. development of civil society civic education and advocacy training

Iran's human rights record is abysmal and its democracy deficit is growing.

The Iranian Government regularly commits:

  • Summary executions
  • Disappearances
  • Torture
  • Arrest and detention of activists, journalists and religious minorities

This brillian man is one of our greatest philosopher of our time, and he should treasured not arrested by a bunch of dark ages 4th-century Bedouin savages.

Great job on Winds. The Iraniantruth cabal reared their ugly head, yet again to spread their toxic bile and propaganda and fail miserably to convince anyone.
