Iran and America have shelved the war mongering conservatives, can we save the middle east now?

While Bush has expressed interest in enlarging the military I am very concerned giving him even more soldiers to abuse and misuse because the middle east is going to get much worse unless....
We the people of America have had enough of our conservative warmongering leadership and have shelved them in exchange for Democratic leadership in hopes of putting an end to the warmongering, get us out of the middle east, and start taking care of we the people. So far this has been to no avail but I still have my hopes come next month.
Knowing how tenuous the relationship between the U.S. and Iran is and that it seems likely that this relationshit could result in a confrontation and would be the completion of the middle east breakdown.
I am seeing small rays of hope that this can still be averted after seeing the results of elections in Iran.

Iran's city councils and the clerical body called the Assembly of Experts suggest that even small doses of democracy can have a good effect when it can be applied as they have recently in Iran!.
The results are an unmistakable rejection of Iran's demagogic President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his hard-line followers.Just as our elections were a rejection of America's demagogue Bush.
Ahmadinejad and his backers have tried to spin the outcome of the voting by saying that the exceptionally high overall turnout of more than 60 percent illustrates the legitimacy of the Islamic Republic, and that Ahmadinejad's government supported no particular candidates in the two elections. Sound familiar?
The high turnout reflected two factors in actuality! The determination of reformists to rectify the mistake they made when they boycotted the balloting that brought Ahmadinejad to power; and the splitting away of conservatives from the fanatics and thugs associated with Ahmadinejad.
Do you realize how much we have in common! We fucked up and look what we got, Bush, as a result of not coming out in the numbers we should have to keep our fanatic out of power. This time we did and many of the fanatics that blindly supported Bush in his endeavors to harm the average American and his warmongering are also out.
In Tehran and other cities where Ahmadinejad's supporters lost control of city councils, their association with him was public knowledge. And it was well-known that in the Assembly of Experts voting, Ahmadinejad's religious mentor -- the virulently anti democratic Ayatollah Mohammad Taqi Mesbah-Yazdi -- was in competition with the worldly and wealthy former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. Rafsanjani ended up with twice as many votes as the ayatollah whose influence Ahmadinejad wanted to enhance.
This is really good news to me.Can anyone tell me how Rafsanjani feels towards the United States?
He is obviously more moderate than the hard line Religious Right Ayatollah.This outcome is significant because the Assembly is empowered to choose a successor to the powerful Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who is often said to be in poor health. This all sounds pretty promising to me!
Limited and manipulated as Iran's electoral exercises may be, this time they produced a healthy reaction to the hard line outlook of Ahmadinejad. again I say look at the commonality between Iranian civilians and us. .
The corruption of the clerical regime is as flagrant as ever. Billions in private assets are being sent to Dubai. And there have been angry demonstrations against the regime's financial backing of Hezbollah while the plight of poor Iranians remains unremedied. Again we could be talking about the Bush regime. I guess it is just the plight of the common man!
The election results do not promise a sudden change in Iran's nuclear policy or its regional ambitions. but hopefully Ahmadinejad's brand of extremism will come to an end.

It gives me hope with what we did in November and the recent results in Iran's elections. Could it be that we the people can actually influence what is happening in the middle east? you know I feel Bush guaranteed the loss of Afghanistan, Iraq, and the entire middle east when he diverted from the so called war on terror to attack Iraq and destabilize the middle east for his new order.
Now I have to wonder Will it make any difference that people in both countries are waking up and want a change or is it too late to prevent an altercation between Iran and the U. S. which would finish Bush's attempt at creating a new middle east order?
Can we the people rise up in Iran and America and be the difference that saves the middle east from total chaos!

Ours and Iran's elections are the first small ray of hope I have seen.
