Dear Iranian protesters. Good for you. You guys have more balls than I do (and definitely more than the long haired protesters here in the States). To step out like that and protest something wrong, when the potential consequences for you can be so grave? I admire and respect your bravery and determination.

I am embarrassed that my government remains silent in your struggle (we get so much flack from your government even when we remain silent. We might as well say something that deserves condemnation. Really, silent or speaking, we can do no right in your governments eyes. We might as well just issue words of encouragement to you to, supporting something that we hold so dear.). I apologize on behalf of my country.

The GOVERNMENT has stayed quiet (I mean, aside for asking sites like Twitter to postpone maintenance so that news can get out of Iran), however, lots of people here in America and the West have shown great support for what's going on in Iran.

Apparently, the US supported a coup in Iran back in the 1950s. It's probably best for foreign powers to stay hush for now rather than provide some reason for Ahmadinejad and his supports to say, "Look, they support these demonstrators because AMERICA is trying to stage a coup!"
