The stakes are too high to ignore, and we must answer the people’s call. There is much to be gained by having a truly democratic Iran: no insurgency pipelines into Iraq and Afghanistan; no threat of missiles being launched against neighbors; free trade and the job opportunities it provides; and diverse options for oil, natural gas and other resources. Perhaps most important, we will have stayed true to our own history and culture by extending our hand and helping a democracy blossom.
