Why the US is staying out of the Iranian election

As long as the US keeps saying that they will stay out of the election and its illegal result Ahmadinejad doesn’t have much support. But – if the US jumps in with both feet supporting Moussavi – there is, in that, a get out clause and people will rally around Ahmadinejad.

You also have to take into account that Moussavi is still not safe:

“There is rule of law in this country and all the people are equal before the law,” Ahmadinejad said when Amanpour asked if he would guarantee Moussavi’s safety. She also asked why opposition leaders had been arrested.

“In a soccer match, people may become excited and there may be confrontation between the people and the police force. People who violate traffic regulations will be fined by the police no matter who he is. These are not problems,” Ahmadinejad said.

When Amanpour asked a second time if Ahmadinejad would guarantee Moussavi’s safety, he said he had already answered the question.

As hard as it is for people to wait and see what the US will do – the best thing for them to do is concentrate on helping the Iranian people and literally don’t expect the US to do, or say anything.

Bush and Cheney would be all over the papers and news channels denouncing Iran – Obama is right to keep the quotes quite muted.

Ahmadinejad does not need any authority to use more force than is already being used.

    That just goes to show you that if the US will just keep it’s dick out of foreign affairs, justice will prevail eventually..,,Ahmadinejad will evetually be given the boot by his own people…in righteous time..

    Why is everyone so concerned that Ahmadinejad has been declared the winner? The clerics still control the country.

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
