There are tens of thousands of Iranians around the world committed to establishing freedom and democracy in Iran. These brave opposition forces inside Iran and at the camps inside Iraq should not only be protected but given the necessary support to bring about regime change in a country that the world condemns. It is also ironic that while the Obama administration publicly condemns Ahmadinejad and his government, the U.S. government is doing little to help the Iranian people. If Americans want to solve the problem of a reckless and dangerous Iranian government, then they should tell their leaders in Congress to continue pressuring the State Department to do more to support the very people willing to confront that government. Hillary Clinton needs to understand that the Iranian regime fears its people more than a military strike.
