Stalling for Time: Iranian Students
Our future lies in our desire for freedom—freedom from political powers who wish to make us like them. Those who possess an obsessive need to control others have repeatedly used their influence and diminished our values. Now we have an opportunity to bring American interference in Iranian affairs to a sweet end. And sweet, indeed, will be the political results of our hostages’ suffering. No one will demean us like the Americans have. It is time to demand respect for our land.
