Desire for Democracy Spreads

For all the uberlibs who believe they are the appeasement champions of the status quo in the Middle East, read this. These Iranian students are courageous and bold, considering the oppression they face from Ahmadinejad.

"The main reason for the objections in recent days goes back to the limitations imposed on universities and political students after the new government came to power," Momeni said.
"Some active students have been expelled and some students face mass summons before disciplinary committees. We are also objecting to recent dealings with critical professors such as Ramin Jahanbegloo," he added.
Iran earlier this month said it had arrested philosopher Jahanbegloo on charges of espionage. He specialized in liberal political philosophy and worked extensively on developing understanding between Iran and the West.
Other student witnesses said the crowd had chanted "Down with despotism" and hurled stones at police cars outside the dormitories, breaking their windows.

Every human on earth has a desire for freedom; our Founding Fathers wrote about it eloquently in the Delcaration of Independence:

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Iraq needs our support and prayers to be a model for those in surrounding countries who also wish for freedom.
