The reformists will finally win.

Reader comment on item: A Call for American Boldness in Iran

Submitted by batya dagan (United States), Jun 24, 2009 at 18:56

I agree that Mousavi turned out to be the wrong leader for the reformists.I think that all along all he wanted was to be elected president and not lead a very angry movement , a movement of mostly young people who wanted to free themselves from the cruel rulling of the mullahs.

It is sad that the movement does not have a leader.Someone young and energetic and most of all someone who does not belong to the rulling group and who sees Iran as a democracy rather than a theocracy.

The reformists also want a leadership that will take care of the economy of the country.That will keep the tax money in the country rather than send it to terror groups like Hezbollah and Hamas.

Which brings me to Obama.Why don't we hear him say these very words? Once the Islamic administration is out Hamas and Hezbolla are gone too.Without money these sad terrorists will have to learn another vocation.Obama told us that he is going to change the middle east.A chance fell into his lap but it looks as though his middle east change is all about Israel freezing the building in the settlements not freeing the Iranians from the miserable yoke of radical Islam.He still thinks that the ayatollahs will remain and he will sweet talk them into baking cakes in the nuke factories.

Still and all I believe that the end of the mullahs is near despite the lack of a leader and no help from Obama.I think that it will be impossible to actually stop the freedom movement and while it will run into all sorts of dificulties it will finally win.
