Hello. We need courts to hold police responsible for their deadly approach to intervention. I would really appreciate the cops protecting everyone; by starting to protect the threatened persons before using force. Columbus,Ohio

Before sanctions, we are suffering from the Islamic regime in Iran. The real threat to Iranian people is the regime. JCPOA was a bad deal. Obama gave billions of dolloars to mullahs to kill, torture and suppress people. And biden is making the same mistake again. So he shouldn't speak about human rights anymore.

WSJ having a political title to this podcast, that is really subjective, is both unbecoming to its company name and revealing as to its leanings.
