The repeated discussion of "never again" and bemoaning Western indifference hides the real issue at stake here. We simply don't care. The West will act only if the crucible of Syria generates a horror so extreme its militants threaten our own cities. The illusion that our disgrace and outrage may slow the massacre is giving the people of Ghouta false hope. We aren't minded or able to do anything. But where would you like us to send the flowers?— Nick Paton Walsh, CNN
"(Russia) is without question our No. 1 geopolitical foe. They fight for every cause for the world's worst actors. The idea that he (Obama) has more flexibility in mind for Russia is very, very troubling indeed," Romney told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on March 26 of that election year, referring to President Barack Obama being caught on a hot mic telling then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that after the election the United States would have more "flexibility," so long as Obama was re-elected.—Scott Jennings, CNN
It’s hard not to argue that Obama should have made Syria his main and overwhelming foreign policy focus, to the exclusion of nearly everything else, Iran deal be damned. The deal has contributed to escalating tensions. In retrospect, this was foreseeable.—JOSHUA KEATING
Shame Christiane Amanpour who calls herself a journalist. Being all over the mullahs but keeping mummmmm on the struggle of Iranians for freedom, democracy and secularism. Check out her page. Total silence on the issue. We shall not forget.—Roxanne Ganji
Four decades after the mullahs seized power Iran must stop acting as a vehicle for a bankrupt “revolution” and re-became a nation-state behaving like a country. And that requires regime change.—Amir Taheri
"Rape is a crime, but insistent or clumsy flirting is not an offense, nor is gallantry macho aggression."—Catherine Deneuve denounces #MeToo in open letter
“Everybody knows that I carry the monarchic heritage. If the country is more ready for a republic, even better. That’s great.”—Reza Pahlavi Associated Press
“To betray, you must first belong. I never belonged.” —Kim Philby
“Shut up. SAVAK is dead, and the Iranian people will rally to support their country if you ever ask for another coup d'etat like the one orchestrated by CIA in 1953,” —Paulo Coelho tweet to Reza Pahlavi
These protests have shined light on the true colours of Canadian MP Majid Jowhari, NIAC’s Trita Parsi, the newer version of the Iranian Canadian Congress (ICC) and other stooges, apologists or appeasers of the regime like Hooman Majd . It is imperative that we all do our part and what is morally right. While Iranians are sacrificing their lives and safety right now the least we can do is echo their voice.—Nazanin Afshine Jam (former Miss Canada)
