All Crime Is Personal

It seems that Libya dictator Muammar Gaddafi has been accused by the International Criminal Court of ordering his troops to rape hundreds of women in response to those who are protesting for freedom in Libya. I remember about 8 years ago where another Middle Eastern dictator was ordering his troops to rape his own citizens …

iranprotestYou know, I’ve been trying to stay away from politics because anymore there is no real political discourse anymore. It’s usually just one side yelling at the other for whatever reason.
However when you read about what’s going on in Iran you can’t help to wax political. However my post isn’t about Iran per se but more about the Western world.
First let me preface this by saying that I hope the people of Iran do gain their freedom. I know somebody will misconstrue my post somehow as support for the current regime in Iran.
Next I want to address all the people who are changing their Twitter icons to green to show support for the Iranians. That’s great, whatever floats your goat. However don’t get down on somebody who hasn’t, like me. I know you’re trying to bring awareness to the plight of Iraninans but to me it’s like the ribbon craze of the 90’s when everybody felt it was necessary to wear a colored ribbon for whatever cause. I didn’t need to wear a red ribbon then to show that I was concerned about AIDS. Conversely I don’t need a green Twitter icon to show I’m supporting the Iranian people. Not to mention the so called awareness factor. You’d have to be living under the proverbial rock to not know what was going on in Iran right now. If there are people that are that ignorant then they can’t be of any help anyway.
Now on to my main point. I would lay odds that the majority of you who are supporting the Iranians could have not given a rat’s ass about the freedom of the Iraqi people back in 2003. Forget why you think the war in Iraq was started. I don’t care if you think it was about oil or not the fact remains that the people of Iraq no longer live under a dictator who made Mahmoud Ahmadinejad look like Abraham Lincoln. I already know what you’re thinking though. You’re thinking that while the Iranians are trying to gain their freedom from within we ‘interfered’ with the ‘sovereign’ government of Iraq. To that I say we would have waited a long time before an internal revolution would have happened in Iraq. While Iran may not be as free as say the U.S. or Canada they obviously have a lot more freedom than the Iraqis did prior to the toppling of Saddam Hussein.
I know what else you’re thinking too. You’re thinking that this all started in Iran because of a fixed election. Then I guess you don’t remember the countless elections that Saddam Hussein won with 100% of the vote. Where were you then?
You’re either for freedom for all or you’re not.
As always it was your pleasure.
