Iran election & Obama visit
I heard a very interesting commentary on the radio today that made a lot of sense to me.
The speaker claimed Obama's mid-east visit and speech to the Arab / Muslim world was timed and written in part to influence today's Iranian election.
Apparently, Iranian hardliners have been using fear as a political platform. Obama's message of peace and cooperation undermined their attempt to scare Iranians into thinking US / Zionists invaders are out to get them.
Hopefully, Iranians will feel more comfortable voting for a more moderate candidate.
Credit to Obama if this was his intention. Good move IMO.
Quite a contrast to Bush, who labeled them team captain of the Axis of Evil.
