Despite some people's belief, the CIA is not omnipotent. They can't just create a revolution anytime they want to. All they can do is provide assistance in areas that are ripe for upheaval.

It seems every time we support a ME country, it backfires on us. In defense (see Afghanistan against USSR) or war (see Iraq v Iran), we step on our dicks in the long run.

Yes, but it stretches our dicks and impresses the lady folk.

Afghanistan is far more complicated than that. We didn't create the Taliban or Al Qaeda. Its likely they would have existed even without our putting funds into afghanistan.

And imo, the collapse of the Soviet Union (a mortal threat to the US) was important enough that I wouldn't change a thing in that regard even knowing what I know now.

Do you think the collapse of the USSR should be credited to Jimmy Carter for his incredibly bold move to boycott the 1980 Olympics?

honestly did anyone expect the opposition leader to win?

ummmm... NO...

The best thing we can do is support the young Iranians who are willing to stand up against "amaginiadinagad"

Yesterday was the Iranian presidential election. I drove to Ottawa to vote. More than 85% of eligible voters voted, of which about 80% of those voted for Mousavi, that is, against current president Ahmadinejad. I actually campaigned to encourage voting, by launching Lotfan.org last weekend.

Overnight however, a silent coup happens. The votes are never counted! Imaginary numbers are pushed out in the state-run TV as actuals:

The first counts, from rural places, start with Ahmadinejad getting 69% of the votes. Which sounds not right, but not unrealistic for rural places.

What we notice as being very very weird in our 5 hour drive back to Toronto is, as the total of votes counted goes up from 5 millions to 10, 15, 21, 24, 25, 28, 29, 30 millions, the balance doesn't change much. In fact, as facebookers and bloggers soon discovered, the ratio of votes for Mousavi over that of Ahmadinejad's at any given announcement was following a straight line with VERY HIGH CERTAINTY.
