Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
sorry, I did not explain myself well.

I am paraphrasing the author in the post above because I couldn't do a cut and paste.  Here is the integrality of the passage.

Although Meyssan might be discredited by some due to

his questionable 9/11 conspiracy-theories, it has become increasingly clear that more

mainstream reports have accepted Meyssan's reservations about how Sharp's theories

and his organization, the AEI, are being used to further western control and interests. In

a recent Counterpunch article, Paul Craig Roberts, discussing the fact that the Foundation

for Democracy announced funding for the "promotion of democracy and internationally

-recognized standards of human rights in Iran" adds, "By now we all know what that means. It means that the US finances a "velvet" or some "color revolution" in order

to install a US puppet.11 Mark MacKinnon, twice-winner of Canada's top reporting

prize, recently published (both in the US and Canada) his book on the subject that also

describes "the links between these democratic revolutions and the forces that are quietly

reshaping the post Cold-War world."12
