Michael Ledeen fragt sich, warum westliche Politiker zwar die “Gewalt” des iranischen Regimes verurteilen, sich aber nicht für einen Regime Change aussprechen:
Meanwhile, the Western world clicks its collective tongue and criticizes “the violence” and the lack of respect for rights of free speech and assembly, as if that were the point. Not a single western “leader” has found the nerve and the common sense to denounce the regime and call for regime change. Indeed our guy Obama couldn’t drag himself away from the beach and the basketball court on Oahu to say anything at all. Nor could Ms Hillary.
A generation of brave freedom fighters in Iran, and the usual accomplices to evil in the West. As before. If any of them dares say “never again,” they should be publicly spanked, removed from office, and then sent off for education. Or is it reeducation?
Zu Obamas – äußerst spätem – Statement schreibt Ledeen in einem Update:
Obama finally came out with the usual condemnation of violence and reiteration of human rights. Fine for academics and scribblers, not good enough for a leader.
