Obama Marks the Iranian New Year

President Barack Obama marked the Persian New Year with a message of solidarity to Iranian youth.

"The future of Iran belongs to the young people, the youth who will determine their own destiny," Obama said on Sunday. "Your talent, your hopes and your choices will shape the future of Iran, and help light the world. And though times may seem dark, I want you to know that I am with you."

Obama should just focus on solving America's messy financial problems and butt out of Iran's affairs. Maybe he should give the same message to the people of Bahrain and Yemen - that's much needed right now.

How can he say stuff like that with a straight face???

Oh yes, he's with you:

That's why he rejected the Tehran Declaration and sanctioned your country, contrary to his pledge.

That's why the operating software of all your computers is sanctioned, necessitating you pirate it.

Yes, Anon, we''re used to his lies with a straight face: that's his job.

Barack Obama.
On the one hand he is not clever enough to lead the United States to change to a sustainable course in the Middle East.

But on the other hand, he is not clever enough to make a speech that could actually undermine Iran’s government rather than undermining the opposition that he hopes will – under the pressure of a US-induced economic crisis that he hopes for – usher in a pro-Western anti-democratic government for Iran.

I think it is time for the Americans to rise and liberate themselves form this AIPAC chains.

At least one would start respecting these Amis agin.

Mr Obamas solidarity with Iranian demonstrators ??!! I think he might be mixing up the countries..

His selective approach towards reacting to demonstrators of Lybia and Bahrain is evident enough of something terribly sinsiter..

Once again the US foreign policy, seems to falling into spiral actionism and reactionism, which always turns to make matters worse for them and better for Irans geopolitical status.

Now regardless of some eloquent attempts of certain outlets and individuals in talking these matters into a senseless ball bouncing around....
A
couple of years from now ... all should be judged, now ! its time to sit back and watch US allies fall apart like...

America's youth are the solution to its problems. That's why US states are cutting education budgets, teachers pay, and perks, and youth unemployment is at record levels. Maybe they need a revolution over there that the Iranian govt can support.

On Libya, i wonder how much interested parties love to apply this libya scenario to iran? No fly zone and airstrikes to prevent the death of protesting civilians. maybe that's the point here, precedent.
