Anyone who remembers Zia ul Haq knows how fortunate the West is with the present Pakistani leadership. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and later Daughter Benazir are being missed. It has been suggested somwhere else, that first there needs to be a Presedential executive order, to focus and take clear aim at the Iranian Mulahdom and its hand picked leader Ahmadinejad. The enemies of he West know what a powerful weapon in the Middle East rumours and disinformation can be. It's time we start using this to our advantage. Iran's destabilization has to start from within, the same way the Revolution of 79 did. With Irans youth, in the Colleges and Universities. The West still has not understood that the 79 Revolution started as a movement to get rid of the Shah, and not so much for an Islamic leadership. It was a case of the Mullahs following and later hijacking the Revolution. By now, the majority of Iranians are definitely familiar with the reality of beware of what you wish for. Promises of US support, if people in Iran should rise up against its leadership, need to be kept this time. During desert storm, Bush sen. implied support in 1991 for a Shia and Kurdish uprising, only to halt the U.S. advance at the Iraqi border, and stood by when as result, ca. 200,000 Shia and Kurds were slaughtered by Saddam's Republican Guards. While this was going on, in Kuwait captured Iraqi aircraft were returned to Saddam by the US. It's understandable why the Shia don't trust America.
