Some Sense on Iranian Elections

Alas, someone else is making sense. 
Read Just Foreign Policy and sign the petition supporting Obama's stance of not interfering in the Iranian elections. Interestingly, Ron Paul supports Obama on his position on Iran. 
People on Twitter and Facebook have gone mad with the Iranian uprising that no one is going to care about in a month (or sooner). 
Meanwhile, Iranians take the idea of martyrdom seriously and encouraging violence among the Iranian people isn't going to get them further along in their cause. 
It seems to me that all the power brokers of Iran are using the people as pawns. Who's dying? The young Iranians. 
The election is no reason for people to die. Twitter, Facebook and CNN, which is relying heavily on Twitter and Facebook video, are helping to escalate the madness.
