Sarah Steelman on Families & Children
A: Regime change? I don't believe that. Why would anyone want their tax dollars going to help Iran right now, when we know the government of Iran is helping the opposition forces in Iraq. Whether you're for or against the war, it's not right for tax dollars to be invested in companies that are helping Iran, Syria, Sudan, Darfur, or North Korea. Regime change can come about when you squeeze the economies and force these tyrannical dictators into sitting down with you, and they're not going to come around because they feel good about it. You have to put their economy under stress, which is what the United States has been doing and what this kind of action does as well. The same kind of policy worked in South Africa because we cut off money going there and it turned them around. So I think it does work. I just don't agree with the premise of your question.
