Iran playing the democracy game by releasing the detained American Journalist
As I predicted the American journalist Roxana Saberi that was arrested and sentenced to 8 yrs and jailed in Iran for Espionage for the United States was just released. So the politics game is still being played between the USA and Iran, and at one time I called it the stick and carrot policy, the give and take, as part of the diplomacy game that both countries are playing and playing well. Iran is in desperate need to prove to the world that it is a democracy when we all know how the Iranians and the Iranian dictator Ahmadi Nejad operates, democracy should not even be mentioned at the same time with Iran, as it is none existent . Regardless of where iran stands on issues of democracy, freedom, liberty and human rights and we all know exactly where, I am sure this gesture is another attempt by the Iranian regime to try to restore and improve relations with the west and especially the USA.
Some may argue that the US leadership has also made conses ions to the iranian by suggesting to have direct talks and dialogue with the iranians. But lets not forget the same policy of carrot and stick was used as president Obama extended the sanctions on Iran.
In conclusion, we all know how the Islamic republic of iran is being run by the lunatic dictator Nejad,but hey releasing this American journalist is a good move, a nice gesture and anything for the sake of humanity, freedom and democracy, we will take it.
Final message to the Iranian leader, you can pretend to be civil, democratic, and friendly all you want, we still dont trust u, we will not fall for it, we know u too well, we also know what u r all about and where u come from, u cant fool us, we are much smarter than you.
