In February, 2006, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice requested emergency funding from Congress to the amount of $75 million, on top of a previously allocated $10 million, “to mount the biggest ever propaganda campaign against the Tehran government”, in the words of The Guardian. The money “would be used to broadcast US radio and television programmes into Iran, help pay for Iranians to study in America and support pro-democracy groups inside the country.” The propaganda effort would include “extending the government-run Voice of America’s Farsi service from a few hours a day to round-the-clock coverage.” In announcing the request, Rice said the U.S. “will work to support the aspirations of the Iranian people for freedom and democracy in their country.”[20]

  • It is not a question of puppet regime it is who is the better puppet master. You choose if you want to live under a brutal theocracy then go there and join them, if you want to live under the pimps Russia and China go sign up, oh it seems that you have, sorry...

    • Well for a start I'd like my country not to be blackmailed into supporting a war of aggression like what's just happened in the Middle East.

      It's also be nice if that "freedom & democracy" spin was replaced with a more realistic narrative - eg. the U.S. is the worlds largest & possibly most ruthless empire today.

    • USA had no right to be in Iraq in the first place. 2.5 million Iraqis are dead thanks to the efforts of 'the west' but you want to bitch about Iran huh?

    • Rights? Look around and you tell me what is the lessor of evils, leaving Saddam in power? Yes there was a soul to collect in this war and yes, yes and yes again.
      Look at the real issues going on here, the demise of American influence and the rise of Chinese and Russian influence? Go ahead and pick your poison Red Pill and while you are so comfy and free in your chair in NZ remember those that have lost the freedoms that we are engaging in at this moment.
