Obama Chooses NOT To Meddle In Iran

With the recent election in Iran and the inevitable win of President Ahmadinejad (his name is so dam hard to spell), it has erupted in riots and protests across Iran from the opposition. The supporters of the rival Mir Hossein Mousavi have stormed the streets even with threats from the government threatening to use force.

Many Iranians view the election as a ‘rigged’ election and a sham. President Ahmadinejad has won his second election with a landslide of a victory. The protests that are still occuring today are due to President Ahmadinejad’s victory.

Obama says that the voices of the protesting Iranians should be heard and certainly not ignored. But he does not wish to meddle in Iranian affairs due to the criticism that the United States of America has earned as an ‘enemy’ to the Islamic world, especially with US – Iranian relations.

Obama faces much opposition and has increasing pressure on him to support the protesters, including criticism from Republican John McCain.

“He should speak out that this is a corrupt, fraud, sham of an election.”

The opposition calls for a complete re-election in order to see a fair win between the two main candidates in the Iranian election. Much of the opposition took to the roof-tops in order to protest the election – many say that a scene like this has never been seen in Iran since the rule of the Shah.

‘Good job’, Obama

I think if Obama really wants ‘change’, then he needs to stop meddling in the affairs of the Middle East. He made a very strong and thoughtful decision to leave Iran in Iran’s hands.

Whether this election was a fraud or not, what has happened has happened. Attempting to cause a full re-election will end in failure, as with the authoritarian rule of Iran, such a thing is unlikely to happen.

Although Obama will face much criticism for doing this, he should stick with his words and see them through. I’m glad that Obama chooses to think before he makes a move, unlike his predecessor.

    I would only post an article if it would make sense; and according to the definition(s), it sure does.
    Much of this is taking place centrally in Tehran, and many Iranians are coming from other parts of Iran to Tehran to protest.
    I have not said anything about “turmoil”.

    Turmoil:
    (Tur-moil):

    –noun 1. a state of great commotion, confusion, or disturbance; tumult; agitation; disquiet: mental turmoil caused by difficult decisions.
    2. Obsolete. harassing labor.
