We still have a long journey ahead

Reader comment on item: Iran in Crisis

Submitted by Habib (United States), Jul 23, 2002 at 18:54

Iran's crusade for democracy is not a new phenomenon. In its contemporary history, from 1902 till the present time, the Iranians have done their very best to achieve their form of freedom. This is the closest we have come, yet we still have a long journey to go.
As for the President Bush's recent announcement of a halt to overtures with Iranian Government, I support this approach as so long as the US role is to support the will of Iranian people. Any direct involvement by the US to set up a leadership of its liking will turn the clock back to 1953.
