Lighting The Way


Fox News reports: Bush: We 'Will Not Tolerate' Nukes in Iran. Excerpt: As for recent demonstrations by students against the Islamic government, Bush offered protesters a warm embrace. "I appreciate those courageous souls who speak out for freedom in Iran. They need to know America stands squarely by their side," [Bush] said. Violent clashes that began last week against clerical rule in Iran have for the most part died down in the last few days.

The BBC is posting letters on the subject of the student protests, with many good ones apparently from Iranians who want the Islamist tyranny stopped. Sample: "The problem of Iran is not 'democracy' because there is, in many senses, democracy in Iran. The Problem is 'Freedom' which is not considered fully in the constitution and I hope soon Iranian people will change it ... to a better future!--Saeed, Iran" (Hat tip LGF)
