Mike Pence’s Iran Resolution

By
Tuesday, June 16, 2009 at 4:46 pm

The Indiana Republican’s office sends it over. It’s brief, with a preamble that quotes the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and a soaring conclusion:

Resolved, That the House of Representatives–

1) expresses its support for all Iranian citizens who struggle for freedom, human rights, civil liberties, and the protection of the rule of law;

2) condemns the ongoing violence against demonstrators by the Government of Iran, pro-government militias, and affiliated entities against the people of Iran, which has escalated since the June 12, 2009, process of selecting Iran’s next political leader; and

3) affirms the universality of individual rights and the importance of democratic and fair elections.

Pence has started to get some media pushback from foreign policy experts who think the United States should stay out of the fray here.

Here’s the resolution in full, after the jump:
