US increases support for Iranian resistance

Iran's quest for nuclear weapons is one of the biggest problems the West faces right now. It'll probably end badly, but there's a chance some good will come out of this confrontation: Iran's theocratic government might be overthrown and a less authoritarian and more democratic government might be formed by the revolutionaries. That result just got slightly more likely, as Condi Rice has asked Congress to increase the budget for promoting democracy in Iran from $10 million to $85 million.
