    The Bay of Pigs was a cluster **** because the liberators we sent in didn't have popular support, however, it is clear that their is popular opposition to the current regime. It would be more analogous to the backing of the Contras in Nicaragua.

    They are fighting and dying for a new government as we speak.

    Also are you OK with outside countries jump starting revolutions and civil wars in other countries?
    You mean like Iran did and is doing in Iraq, Lebanon, and the disputed territories? No not when they seek Islamism, that's why I want to help the people of Iran overthrow their current government.

    There is a huge difference between fighting and dieing due to police brutality and engaging in strategic revolutionary attacks.

    Perhaps the Iranian's hope they can bring about change through peaceful means which is why they stick to protests. Hopefully they realize soon the Supreme Leader won't just hand over his power because the people ask for it.

    I'm all for helping the Iranian's overthrowing their theocratic dictatorship. I'm just not for investing in it the way we did Iraq and the people didn't have the capabilities of controlling their government without a US crutch doing it for them.

    So far I haven't seen the Iranian's willing to do more then protest and beg for justice from the current leaders. They need to demand it or take it.
