I Am With You All In Spirit!
I understand that there is a lot of much deserved hatred among the various governmental leaders; on all sides but, can't they all just say "ok, from today on we are committed to live in Peace with each other regardless of the fact that we can't stand each other"!
Hate in private. Live in Peace!
What's so hard about that?

Good News Although I do think mister ahmadimejad is joking when he said Iranian prisons are like a hotel.
Tehran, Iran An Iranian court Tuesday set bail of $500,000 each for two American men arrested more than two years ago and convicted on spy-related charges, clearing the way for their release a year after a similar bail-for-freedom arrangement for the third member of the group, their defense attorney said.
(Update February 2010)
note to iranian govt.
Stop the violence against your citizens Now!
This is terrible that you are shooting protesters.
I thought you people (iranian govt.) were finally getting smart.
I think you're a country that can get it together and prosper. But you iranian govt. leaders have to get your act together and learn to treat your citizens with caring and nurturing, Not Violence.
Stop this violence against your citizens immediately!
You know what, committing any further violence against your citizens could lose you your power!
Like what, You iranian leaders don't think Iranian citizens can do revolution as good as you did?
Better watch out you may get a big surprise, and find yourselves outside the gates of iran, with your suitcase in your hand.
*Children For Peace Iran*
(Update 1/15/10) What was I thinking? Iranian govt is as bad as the shah.
I keep hearing that Iran is evil. So, why was the the Shah considered to be ok? The Shah was a dictator! He treated his people horribly and it was covered up!
I think that many countries the US government are friendly with might be considered evil, so Iran is different because, they have oil?
Ok, they've been accused of harboring and arming Al Qaeda. But the US has also been accused of supporting Al Qaeda during the Afghan war with Russia. Then Al Qaeda turned on us.
We should be finding Al Qaeda not wasting our resources chasing shadows! How come we never hear anything about the US progress in finding Al Qaeda? Come on, they can't be that slippery!
President Teddy Roosevelt said "Talk Softly and carry a big stick"!
America doesn't need to attack Iran. America's main priority should be to get Iraq stabilized and bring our troops home now!
The world needs to consider that Peace is the only alternative. Really war helps no one. Sure it shows the other guy we're tougher than they are. But what price is the world willing to pay for peace? "An eye for an eye until everyone is blind"!
All the countries of the world know that America has the capacity to defeat a large war machine like that of Nazi Germany. None of them could!
So really their tough talk is just a lot of posturing!
Terrorists, attacked America and although some countries in the Middle East have been accused of supporting terrorist activities, I think that it is more like,a group of international terrorists who are loyal to AN IDEOLOGY OF HATE, rather than any particular country.
Afghanistan chased the Taliban out, because they wouldn't let them grow their poppies. Al Qaeda did train all over the area because they were not wanted anywhere either.
Just because the Arab people's language and culture is very different than ours, doesn't mean that they cannot be rational thinkers.
We have crazy Americans too.
What the world forgets is that America saved them all from the Nazi's.
America doesn't have to put missiles in Eastern Europe to protect us from Russia. Remember the Bay of Pigs? We didn't like it!
Although, Russia is progressing slowly in terms of becoming socially in tune with the rest of the world, they are progressing.
There's a lot of American big business in Russia nowadays, McDonald's, Coca Cola, jeans, anything we've got in America.
Since they took down the Berlin wall, Russia's relations with the west have been a lot less chilly. Until recently.
We should all try to get along with other countries, instead of just wanting to always fight them.
When I see stuff like this on the news I wonder what the heck is happening out there.
The Inmates Have Taken Over the Asylum!
I Think Iran's problem is, that they don't want any more interference in the running of their government by outside countries.
Just because this government doesn't want any partners doesn't necessarily, make them evil.
You think that they don't understand the concept of offense is the best defense, just because their alphabet looks funny?
The days of the West dictating the policy of other countries, has gone the way of the British Empire.
Of course Iran has to realize that the world will not allow them to possess nuclear weapons. Those that don't have the bomb aren't going to get it. It's too dangerous for everyone to have.
I think Iran's play for nuclear power is a threat. They want the West to stop trying to dictate their internal politics. They are far from being a democracy, but need to evolve at their own pace.
I know Al Qaeda can be found, but not in Iran either.
The leaders of all the countries in the world really have to get on the ball and decide that Peace and Human Rights are the Only Solution!*
Forget about the Bomb, it's no good to anybody!
note to president mahmoud ahmadinejad
Nuclear energy is no good either. Remember Chernobyl? In the end all you will have is a country polluted with nuclear power plants and nuclear waste. No one will have to drop a bomb. You could be an accident just waiting to happen.
In your climate, solar energy is definitely the way to go. It is so cheap and clean. Protect yourselves. Don't go off half informed. Just because a lot of countries have nuclear weapons doesn't make it right! Don't believe the con, that the bomb will make you powerful. It won't.
If the bomb goes off, nobody will be left to be the winner!
Peace and Harmony ga*
