Why Trump is right to show support for Iranian protesters
Posted by Staff

After a week of massive protests in Iran that have so far left 21 people dead, the grass roots uprising against the country's autocratic regime is showing no signs of slowing.

In fact, the protests that began last week are spreading geographically and with varying degrees of intensity. While lacking a singular message, demonstrators' ire is clearly focused on the Islamist regime.

The question is: What should the rest of the world do about it?

That's actually a question for the U.S., since few others will make a substantive move without taking a cue from the White House. In fact, Europe probably cannot be relied on to do much of anything at all since so many E.U. nations have tight economic ties to the Islamist regime; ties that became even tighter as soon as the nuclear deal was sealed in 2016.
