Only Mullahs Can Flirt

There has been no shortage of idiotic petitions in recent years. Remember the petition against Professor Rob Sobhani for speaking the truth about the plight of the Iranian women? From the same cast of characters who a couple of years ago did a cyber pimping campaign for Mullah-US relations, here comes another equally idiotic petition against the US plan to allocate funds for democracy promotion in Iran (which hasn't even been approved by the Congress yet). According to these dinosaurs, it is ok for mullahs to flirt with everyone including the Americans but it is not ok for the Iranian people to get the support they badly need.

Which country in the recent past has made peaceful transition to democracy without US overt and covert support?
