Your first paragraph was very encouraging
“There probably were legitimate protests in Iran early on in this, and yeah, there are definitely aspects of Iran worth protesting.”
Not sure why you added the last one in which you incorrectly painted me a rabid interventionist. It’s not so. I opposed the invasion of Iraq and the toppling of Saddam Hussein, opposed the intervention in Libya, and opposed the US meddling in Syria. I’m a selective interventionist and I believe any proposed intervention needs to meet a much higher bar than Bush and Obama applied to their actions. I am not advocating military intervention in Iran, but that doesn’t mean we have to be blind to what’s happening to its people. Fair enough?
