President Obama today delivered a video message to all those celebrating Nowruz, or New Year; but it was mainly targeted at those living inside Iran. The Administration hopes that the millions of secret satellite dishes in Iran will deliver his message to the Iranian populace. The thaw continues. The Administration’s recent attempts to lower the tension with Iran have been nothing if not inspired. This video message continues in that vein. It will be increasingly difficult for the Iranian leadership to continue to demonize the United States as the ‘Great Satan’ if said devil is speaking openly, honestly and directly to the Iranian people – so many of whom are under 35 and are the real people he’s attempting to impact.
