After the unruly protest against Ahmadinejad on Monday, Tahkim Vahdat, the main student movement in Iran, is issuing a “storm warning” to the regime!
I’ve been told a number of times that we were wrong to go into Iraq in 2003 and “impose” freedom from the outside on a soveriegn nation, but that it would have been okay if the struggle for Iraqi freedom had been started by Iraqis in Iraq and then we went in and did the exact same things we did in 2003.
Please no discussion of whether this portrayal of what happened in 2003 is accurate or not. Just use the argument given to answer the question below:
Using that logic, wouldn’t it be okay to go into Iran in 2007 and do what we did to Iraq in 2003?
Not “could we?“. Not “would we?“. Not “should we?“.
Would it be “okay” if we went in and delivered political freedom to those who want it but cannot quite get it for themselves?
