Thats the power of the main stream media. Tell people that Iran's elections were hijacked and is becoming a dictatorship and watch the american people jump on the bandwagon. Is it any coincedence that Israel is also 'practicing' an air assault? As if the US hadn't suspected any protests or want them??
For all we know the election results were fair and the MSN is meddling once again. To push for a leader backed by the west & dismantle the Iranian government I imagine. Civil unrest is what the MSN want us to see, they want Iran to appear to us as a fascist dictatorship.
While people point fingers at Iran saying that they want Israel wiped off the map. Let it be known that the Irsraeli goverment has said the same things about Iran.

That still doesn't answer the question I posed. Russia and China both are meddling just as much if not more in the area.
Does anybody else find it intriguing that no mention of Russia nor China has been made in reference to unrest and meddling in Iran, when they have just as much of a vested interest in the area as the US or UK does.
China’s security relationship with Iran is broad. Despite over a decade of protests from Washington, China continues to export nuclear technology, chemical weapons precursors, and guided missiles to Iran. Indeed, China is one of Iran’s top two weapons suppliers (with Russia). A report in 2004 by the U.S.-China Security and Review Commission stated that "Chinese entities continue to assist Iran with dual-use missile-related items, raw materials and chemical weapons-related production equipment and technology” and noted that the transfers took place after the Chinese government pledged in December 2003 to withhold missile technology Iran. The Central Intelligence Agency reported in 2004 that “Chinese entities are continuing work on a zirconium production facility at Esfahan that will enable Iran to produce cladding for reactor fuel.” Although Iran was a signatory to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and was required to accept International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards on its production of zirconium fuel cladding, Iran made no moves to do so, and China exerted no influence to the contrary.
