The Neda Solution

It's time for the UN to step up to the last.

The United States should request a meeting of the Security Council to consider sending a force to Iran for the sole purpose of setting up and monitoring an election. France would join, as would Israel and Germany for starters.

It would be made clear from the start that this is not a military invasion but troops that will oversee the election to be certain there's no threatening or coercion of the voters and that the votes are counted.

It is the kind of thing that the United Nations should -- and could -- do to assure liberty, equality and peace in the world.

And the election should be held in honor of Neda and the million of unknown innocents who have died needlessly in wars.
