Iran: What to Do

Here is the lastest story about our friendly mullahs: http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nm/20050209/ts_nm/iran_dc These guys just don't know when to quit. You would think that the toppling of the Taliban and Baathists would send a signal loud and clearly. Apparently not. The Iranian governmented still wants a nuclear arsenal so it can blackmail its neighbors and become a defiant regional power. It might even threaten the state of Israel with a nuke. Some have called for regime change, others for an olive branch. I suggest we support democratic elements within the country, like the nonviolent student movement there. Why have liberals been so quiet on this issue? Don't they support nonviolent student movements? I am waiting for an answer...
