Deja vu

In 1953, America aided Iranians Iranians aided America in the overthrow of a democratically elected leader of Iran. Will they oblige again?

I haven't heard of any material support from outside to the "revolutionaries", but the media here is flush with moral support. There is a clear line between wishing that fairness prevail (i.e., a recount or re-election happen) and wanting a coup, and that line has been crossed everywhere in the American media (although the state has remained remarkably uninfected, so far).

Check out the provocative front page at Huffington Post, for example. And they have been at this for the past 3 days; everyone from the aforesaid muckraker to the New York Times.
