Iranian people want regime change

No doubt about that! They want regime change, they want it badly and there seems to be someone trying to get help for the people of his country which is on the verge of collapse under the rule of mad mullahs:
    When [he] came before a judge the interrogator from the revolutionary guards said that there was not enough time to read all the charges, so the judge heard only some of them before sentencing him to eight years in prison. He turned to Fakhravar and asked whether eight years were enough to turn him into a human being. The prisoner simply replied, “go to hell.”
Read it for yourself !!!

People call him Iranian Ahmad Chalabi, so be it. I don't care if he is one or not. Actually I liked what Chalabi did for his country. Iraqis I spoke to, liked him as well. What he did was to go to Americans, the only ones that can really help, and free his country from the grip of a bloodthirsty dictator. That is called BRAVERY, dudes.

What's wrong with it? Nothing, if you ask me. I'd do it too if I could! It's not shameful to ask for help when you genuinely need it.

Other than the fact that Chalabi was a thief and a liar, telling the US whatever they wanted to hear to justify invading Iraq, I like the guy too!

Good point. I totally agree.

"What he did was to go to Americans, ... and free his country from the grip of a bloodthirsty dictator."

If he was sincerely doing it to save his country, then I can't blame him either.
But who was he working for? And who was he really trying to benefit? Iraq or Iran?

If the Iranian people want a regime change - and lets all hope they do - let them rise in rebellion against the tyrants. Intervention is very different than invasion. Why should the West suffer the public relations backlash of an initial interference? Even the Pretender to the throne (I guess using the term Pretender is loaded, I should say His Highness the Crown Prince - I hope I got the title right) wants local action rather than foreign action to bring down the govt. Nobody ever helped the English people win the freedoms that are now taken for granted throughout the Anglo-Saxon (and one could add Western) world - their freedoms were won by idealism, blood, guile and treason! As all freedoms and liberties are!

He met with VP Cheney Wednesday! Yeehaw! It's about time is all I can say. Maybe now the Bush Administration will listen...

I'm sorry, but I must answer some of these people!

People. They have been protested damn near everyday since the Americans came to free Iraq (and even before), only the PRESS doesn't think it is worth reporting. Why, you ask?

Because if they report anything they see, they will not be allowed back in the country if they are not thrown in prison first. Do you remember the Canadian-Iranian woman reporter who ended up dead?

So don't say they are not trying. Why don't YOU start paying attention! Why don't YOU write about what you can find out about what is happening over there?!

Do not blame it on the oppressed, but the oppressors. Do not hold yourself up so high when you have lifted a finger to help. There are people in prison as I type because they wanted democracy. That was their crime. What is your excuse?

Andrew, I think if you were to study the history of the Anglosphere, you would have to eat these words:

"Nobody ever helped the English people win the freedoms that are now taken for granted throughout the Anglo-Saxon (and one could add Western) world - their freedoms were won by idealism, blood, guile and treason! As all freedoms and liberties are!"

In particular, study the American Revolution, which is really one of the more important templates for what happened elsewhere. The Americans did not do that alone. France came to their side and played a critical role.

As for the rest of you, get a life. Chalabi was far from the only Iraqi exile speaking to Western governments and telling them what they "wanted" to hear. You need to ask the loved ones of all those who ended up in mass graves to realize the case for armed intervention was not hard to make. Some Iraqi exiles were even speaking on Canadian television programs to the general public about the need for outside assistance in toppling that regime.
