Why is Obama so interested in helping the people of Libya but not Iran?

He freezes Gaddafi's money and is even considering aid runs to Libya but when they had riots in Iran he hardly said a word. What's the difference?

  • We shouldn't be in either situation. If we declare no fly zone in Libya, we have to be prepared for full military backup. We need to let this situation in Libya play itself out

  • Oil. Look waht has happened to the price since there revolt started. The cost of gas is already going up and with summer on the way Obama is going to be vilified. Remember what happened with Bush after the summer of $4 a gallon gas.

    Or is he doing it to force more people into hybrids and electric cars by driving the price of gas up? I remember a quote of him saying during the election that the $4-5 a gallon didn't bother him, it was that it went so fast he didn't like.
