STEP 1: Dispatch your CIA, MI6, & Mossad agents to the target nation. Use various covers such as "exchange student", "tourist", "aid worker", "businessman", "journalist", "diplomat".
STEP 2: Use the humanitarian guise of "pro democracy" or "human rights" to start up your NGO's (Non Governmental Organizations) inside of the target nation. Provide cover for yourself by doing actual good works, while building up your N.G.O. with local malcontents, liberals, and gullible idealists.
STEP 3: Recruit your network of domestic traitors. Target intellectuals, academics, politicians, journalists, and, if possible, military men. Use bribery to target those who can be bought. Use blackmail to target those who have some stain in their private life.
STEP 4: If the target nation has large Labor Unions, corrupt labor bosses will be very happy to cooperate with you. American dollars and Euros are king!
STEP 5: Pick a catchy theme or color for your "revolution". Examples include "Prague Spring" (Czechoslovakia, 1968), "Velvet Revolution" (Eastern Europe 1989), "Saffron Revolution" (Myanmar), "Cedar Revolution" (Lebanon), "Rose Revolution" (Georgia), "Orange Revolution" (Ukraine), "Green Revolution" (Iran), "Arab Spring" (Egypt, Tunisia, Libya) and Hong Kong's "Umbrella Revolution". It's all about marketing!
STEP 6: Kick off your "revolution" with a "spontaneous protest". Use your CIA agents and their controlled N.G.O. idiots to make allegations of "human rights abuses", or "government corruption" or "election fraud". It doesn't matter if the allegations are true or not. Just be passionate!
*OPTIONAL STEP (6.5): In certain cases, "WikiLeaks" may be able to assist your fake revolution by "leaking" embarrassing secrets about key officials within the target government. When your paid journalists run with the "leaks", many enraged citizens will then join forces with your N.G.O. rent-a-mob.
STEP 7: Roll out your "spontaneous" banners and protest signs, written in English. You are, after all, trying to manipulate American policy makers and the gullible American public.
STEP 8: Add in your wholly-owned labor bosses, academics, and spoiled "Western wannabee" college brats. Turn up the heat on the target government. This will swell the ranks of the protesters to include malcontents, people with legitimate grievances, "bandwagon" types, and folks who are just bored and want something to do (and want to be a part of something "bigger than themselves" while simultaneously fitting into the social fad at the moment).
STEP 9: The major American and European media outlets will now assist you by portraying the uprising as a "popular" and "spontaneous" reaction to corruption / tyranny / voter fraud, etc.
STEP 10: Now that "the world is watching", stage an incident. If you can manipulate some fanatic into setting himself on fire, do so! Otherwise, fake an atrocity, Use fake blood, fake tear gas, and photo shopped images. Make sure the "victim" is a woman! The international media and your paid local propagandists will run with the atrocity story. The destabilized target government will soon lose support among many of its own people!
STEP 11: Add in your violent agent provocateurs. Use them to FORCE the police into violent acts. This will embarrass, intimidate, and destabilize the government to the point where it becomes de-legitimized in the eyes of "the world community."
STEP 12: Add in your paid-for-politicians and wait for the US, UN, & EU to "pressure" the "oppressive" target government into submission. The threat of economic sanctions, "no-fly zones", bombing, or even an armed "rebel" uprising, should convince the government to either bend to your wishes, or to step down and call for new elections.
