But the U.S. is walking a dangerous tightrope, since the energy of the
revolution is more than capable of ruining all the U.S. plotting.
Moussavi and his ilk are already in the process of being pushed

easily manipulated events; masses of suddenly-conscious people have
high expectations that cannot be met by the corporate-controlled U.S.
If Obama were sincere about helping the people of Iran, he would leave
the country in peace, instead of making threats and beating the war
drum, a drum he's pounding in the exact same rhythm that Bush played in
the march to war with Iraq.
Hands off Iran!
