In the face of the greatest possibility since the founding of the Islamic Republic for regime change in Iran, the administration sheepishly fails to throw support behind the protesters. Instead, he gets in front of a podium and says he is "deeply concerned." Since then the protests apparently fizzled and died.

Now the legitimate Honduran president is illegally ousted and guess what? The administration is again only "deeply concerned."

Am I justified in my skepticism as to whether always simply being "deeply concerned" will ever accomplish anything? We don't expect our leaders to mobilize the army in every crisis, but we do expect them to stand firmly on the side of freedom.
