Extend a Hand to the People of Iran

The stakes are too high to ignore, and we must answer the people's call. There is much to be gained by having a truly democratic Iran: no insurgency pipelines into Iraq and Afghanistan; no threat of missiles being launched against neighbors; free trade and the job opportunities it provides; and diverse options for oil, natural gas and other resources. Perhaps most important, we will have stayed true to our own history and culture by extending our hand and helping a democracy blossom.

No matter how much outdated unuseful blind anti Americanism propaganda you perpetuate, your beloved IRI regime is going down. Maybe not this time around, but the countdown has started, no doubt.


So taking words like “wolves” out of your beloved dictator Khamenei’s mouth, like he said yesterday, will not help your regime’s survival. From now on, the only thing the regime will depend on for survival is brutal force by its thugs.


Blind anti Americanism and blaming America game was and now even more than before  done.

No Enemeies of Iran Should Apply ....

Extending hand of support without the secret plans to destroy the country is always welcome. What is not is the "iron hand in velvet gloves". Those wolves who pretend to be freinds of Iranians are the same wolves that apply economic sanctions on our nation and make life nisserable for Iranians, and are the same wolves that call Iranians "terorrists". We should not fall in their traps and and cannot trust them.
