Many even want the US to over throw their government.

This came from the article. I just copy/pasted it. This is asking for more than just moral support which I freely and happily give them.

Sure I wrote that "Iranians didn't deserve freedom" but you ripped this from the sentence where "unless they do it themselves" followed it. Nobody likes being misquoted or quoted out of context.

The French did not start our Revolutionary War, the Americans did. And nobody gives the French the credit for "liberating" the colonies.

Please reread my statement. I was responding to your statement(in context) with the fact that our own revolutionary war was won with the help of other nations. Foreign military help was very important to our ultimate success at some critical moments.

The Iranian people are doing what you suggested. They have not asked for foreign intervention. They have simply been seeking our moral support.

I was objecting to what appeared to me to be a rather condescending attitude towards the Iranian people. Perhaps I was wrong about your intent. I see many Iranian freedom fighters as displaying tremendous courage and felt I needed to respond.
