The coup in 1953, code name AJAX, was the CIA's first success at overthrowing a Democratically elected foreign government. This led to generations of anti-American hatred which led to the overthrow of the Shah in the Islamic Revolution of 1979.
After an coup coup d'etat and constant meddling of the United States to prop up the oppressive regime of the Shah? The U.S. arming and military support of Iraq to attack Iran, the Iran Contra affair? The Navy shooting down Iran Air flight 655 with the loss of 290 civilians? Operation Praying Mantis, the largest U.S. naval combat since WW II against Iran in 1988? Bush 41's Axis of Evil speech and border incursions?
WTF good is the U.S. Congress denouncement? Do they think that this will help the cause of the demonstrators? Do they think that a country that hates the United States for what we have done to them even cares about what our meddling Congress thinks? This denouncement only gives the regime in power to use as leverage against their own people while Congress goes home for the night.
Congress does not seem to even understand that the Ayatollah is the supreme leader, not Ahmadinejad.
Congress still does not get it. What would they say if shoe was on the other foot?
Who are the first in line wanting a right wing government overthrown? Why it's the right wing Republican party of the United States! Funny how right wingers hate each other, they know what right wingers are all about.
The world IS watching. Both Iran and the U.S. Congress.

"Netherlands to close prisons for lack of criminals.
The Dutch justice ministry has announced it will close eight prisons and cut 1,200 jobs in the prison system. A decline in crime has left many cells empty.
During the 1990s the Netherlands faced a shortage of prison cells, but a decline in crime has since led to overcapacity in the prison system. The country now has capacity for 14,000 prisoners but only 12,000 detainees.
Deputy justice minister Nebahat Albayrak announced on Tuesday that eight prisons will be closed, resulting in the loss of 1,200 jobs. Natural redundancy and other measures should prevent any forced lay-offs, the minister said.
The overcapacity is a result of the declining crime rate, which the ministry's research department expects to continue for some time."
The Dutch have decriminalized Marijuana use and hard drugs are legally prescribed by doctors. The Dutch understand that it is prohibition that causes crime, not the drug. In the United States there are 100 arrests for marijuana EVERY MINUTE! Think what this does to the court system, the need for jail cells and the wreckage of life's this leave behind.
A new Zogby poll commissioned by the conservative-leaning O’Leary Report has found 52 percent voter support for treating marijuana as a legal, taxed, regulated substance.
This is a new world. It is the time to think, rethink and act on science and comprehension instead the old WTF knee jerk reaction of ignorance.

Senior Citizen Terrorists? WTF?
Hoards of wheel chairs and walkers appearing from over the hill? Gangs of grey hairs, terrorizing the streets? No, they will come but it will be one by one.
I predict that in the years to come, violent crimes committed by persons 55 and over will increase.
50 million American are not cover by any health plans. Diagnosed as terminally ill, some will decide to take as many with them as they can.
As the Republican Party loses ground, the disenfranchised, those who will not or can not accept change, will turn their years of anger into action. Assassinations against their perceived enemies, those who are not with them are against them, will increase.
As IRA's, property values and retirement funds decline, anxiety from watching a life’s work disappear into someone else’s pocket, will reach the breaking points of some seniors.
Pain will cause others to snap. Pain that never goes away stymied by laws that separate people from medications that relieve or calm the pain will take revenge to suffer others pain.
Think of the mix of the above. Crazy Old Men and Women acting alone or in small cells will be very hard to stop. No one seems to keep any records of major crimes and homicides perpetuated by senior citizens. Few will notice the increase.
It is far too easy to pick up a gun, murder your family or others then blow out your own brains. Vehicular homicide by seniors will increase. Explosions from “accidental “gas leaks will increase.
When you see an old person and think to yourself “They couldn’t hurt a fly” you may just get your ass swatted.

While I am watching, I am switching between Fox and MSNBC news.
On fox, the color is off and Obama's voice is tinny sounding.
The biggest difference that I notice though is that on Fox News, when the audience applauds, the volume is potted down. Potting is an old radio term for changing the volume, not that I was ever a disc jockey at a small college in the Midwest. Who? Me?
I have compared Fox News to CNN, CNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC and others with the same result. This is the first that I have noticed fox turning down the applause.
Try this yourself. I would really like to see side by side video of this.
Remember, theses speeches are produced with the same camera and the same microphones. It is a news feed that goes out exactly to all the news services. How it is rebroadcast to you is up to the individual news agencies.
WTF Fox News? Even a crazy old man can catch on to your bias.

Deeply sunken eyes. Large philtrum. Large ears with dangling ear lobes. Hair from the 1970's.
Feed Ahmadinejad some 1/4 pounders with cheese and take away Blagojevich's razor and what do you get?
Look alike arseholes!
WTF? Are you expecting words of genius with every post?
