Neda Salehi, an Innocent, Murdered by Iran #neda

Iran is lead by evil men. While corruption and voting are not new bedfellows, or unique to Iran (Chicago is famous for this, especially under Mayor Richard J Daley's Democratic Machine), murder is less common. Not in Iran. Not under Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Yesterday, Neda Salehi Agha Soltan was killed by Iranian militia. What will the USA do? I'm not sure what, or if, we should do anything. Our recent history intervening has not been good. However, our longer history of involvement shows that when we do nothing, things get worse. And we also know that when we entered both WWI and WWII, America was instrumental in ending both wars.

In 1956, Russian soldiers killed thousands of Hungarians who wanted their own country back. The USA stood passive, and Soviet forces won. Freedom was denied as those with the willingness to kill prevailed.

More currently was the USA's ignoring of the 1994 genocide of Rwandans, made famous by the movie Hotel Rwanda. (my review)

Whatever we do or do not do is only one question. The greater question is what will happen globaly as militant Islam grows, and countries like Iran continue to struggle with thugs like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in charge.
