audentis fortuna iuvat

Gateway Pundit has some interesting video up of an Iranian protest where the protesters explicitly appear to be chanting "Obama, Obama, Are you with the regime or with us?"

The answer to that question is of course obvious to Americans. Interesting, because they're explicitly mentioning Obama, not "America" or "USA". I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this distinction is probably significant, and they understand that most Americans are pretty supportive of their desire to ditch the Mullocracy and the bad crazy leadership...Obama? well, not so much. He's stiff armed them once already, and seems perfectly willing to allow the regime to strengthen its hand even more with nuclear weapons.

My recommendation to the Iranian people would be to sit tight for another 3 years if they'd like any American help. Indeed, fortune does favor the bold, but the Obama administration isn't going to help you or even give you luke warm lip service, and may even actively work to hurt you if you get too bold. Hopes for Change placed on president "present" will go unrewarded. If you think you can pull this off on your own, then go for it. We'll be with you for moral support, and gladly post vids and descriptions of the effort for the world to see. But don't get unrealistic and overestimate your power and wind up crushed. That would suck for everyone (except Obama of course).
