Iran protests - The U.S. would never interfere in another nation's affairs...Would they?

Accusations by Iranian government officials that Washington and Israel are behind the anti-government demonstrations taking place in that country are probably falling on a lot of deaf ears in the west.

We're 'the good guys' right? I mean, countries like the United States would never interfere in the internal affairs of other nations....Would they?

The United States never interfered in Cuba or in Iran itself. Chile, Venezuela, Guatemala...everyone knows when it comes to sovereign nations, the U.S. and other western powers are all about democracy.

They say in war the first causality is truth, and when it comes to controlling information and public opinion, the battle never ceases.

We in the west would do well to finely tune our cynisim and aim it directly at our own media sources. After all we wouldn't want to be tricked into believing the enemy is engaging in atrocicties invented by PR firms.
