Senator Sam Brownback, a Kansas Republican, introduced the bill, which calls on the United States to step up support for pro-democracy campaigners in Iran and increase U.S.-funded broadcasts to that country.
At a Capitol Hill news conference, Senator Brownback said Iranian President Mohammad Khatemi, who has been in office since 1997, has failed to make good on promises of reform. "Iran is an ideological dictatorship, presided over by an unelected supreme leader, with limitless veto power and unelected expediency council and council of guardians capable of eviscerating any reforms," he said.VOA
This is a good step that could be taken by United States in order to change the regime in Iran and helps to establish a democratic and secular government. No military action under any circumstances can help Iranians to get rid of cleric rulers. It would be my hope that the bill would be approved. Real Iranian reformists need to be supported by west, especially by Americans. Any support of reform movement in Iran, could speed up achieving freedom and democracy.
