During more than 3 years that I spent in and around the Persian Gulf Region the United States never considered Iran a friendly entity. It looks like that is beginning to change. It's a great sign if Iran is cooperating with the Iraqi Oil embargo. Positive news from Iran is becoming a regular occurance, and the difference between the government by mullah and the Iranian people is becoming clearer to the average American.
NITV, broadcasting from Los Angeles, is beaming Farsi language programming with freedom loving, Iranian pride as its focus. NITV, founded by Zia Atabay, the "Tom Jones of Iran," is a wildly successful venture, if making money isn't essential to a definition of success.
Everywhere you look you can find good news from Iran, I hope that trend continues.
