The what so called color revolutions are the "soft coup" that skillfully manipulate elections and democratic procedures to attain regime change in former USSR states in central Asia. This kind of "revolution" significantly use bright and eyes-catching emblems for the action. Georgia had its "rose revolution", Ukraine had its "Orange revolution" and Kyrgiztan had "Yellow/ Lemon revolution".

The main connection and similarity are... all color revolutions candidate held pro-west policy compared to their opponents in elections, that propose close relationship with Russia. They also enjoy US support, some of which are notorious CIA front. Some of them and the background:

1. USAid: A US funded "civil organization" that teach various political parties in the world on propaganda, news report, topic making, mass rally and people's revolt.

2. IRI(International Republican Institute): lead by John McCain, a republican presidential candidate. One of the most significant operation it ever completed was to throw Haitian president Aristide by force and actively promote and support pro-US Iraqi assembly candidate.

3. NDI(National Democratic Insitute for International affairs): led by former secretary of state Medeleine Albright. The most significant operation is cooperate with NED to support Chavez opponents in Venezuelan election. The financiers of the operation: Chevron, Exxon, Texaco and Enron (it's all about oil).

4. NED (National Endowment for Democracy): led by Vin Weber, former Senate member and currently member of hawkish neo-cons. He is a founder of "Empower America" with simple political views, that America has to own absolute supremacy in military hardware to "solve" dispute. It leads other organizations as International Republican Institute、National Democratic Institute for International Affairs、Center for Private Enterprise and American Center for Labor Solidarity. All have connection to various worldwide NGO's. Their operations stretched from Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia, China etc etc. In 1980, they even interfere with France election, financing ultra-right National Inter-university Union, using them to attack leftist. One of the NED leader Allen Weinstein stated "A lot of what we [NED] do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA". Current president Bush suggest to double government budget for NED in its 2004 speech.

5. Freedom House: led by former CIA director James Woolsey, a neo-cons... so don't need too much introduction.

6. At last... Open society: led by George Soros. He set up several organizations to finance liberal academics, reporter, college students and organize rally, seminar etc etc. He spent around 2.5 to 3 millions in these 3 countries. His background of a persecuted Jew made him have much care for this eastern Europe region.

(American) Center for Media and Democracy accuse them of being "DEMOCRACY MANIPULATOR" organization seeking to influence political outcomes or process of another country by overt and covert means.

American congressmen Ron Paul accused these organizations, their action won't be allowed in US soil, but they actively operate outseide there.

The what so called "democracy preachers" are just propaganda machine financed by former intelligence officers or bloodthirst supremacist in Washington. Only Open Society that is rather free from Washington interference, but it serve the same agenda, to spread pro-US message using nasty, crafty means.
So much for US style democracy...

Hi again Northwest,
I do take issue with the suggestion of your post.
Firstly let me say that I am not a fan of the US republican party, right wing groups or that speculative currency thief, George Soros.

Now as to your suggestion of "soft coups", well I think that is off the mark.

All political parties (including in single party states) do use public relations techniques to attract the support and interest of the public. China is no different and I am sure there are campaigns in China for the people to follow the wise advice of the CCP.
To evoke a negative connotation on the "colour revolution" political parties and their publicity campaigns demands a similar condemnation of other political parties who engage in public relations.

Now as to the "pro western" allegations, well I think that a case can be made that the people of Ukraine and various former soviet republics are making up their own minds. Possibly this is a backlash against the 60 years of rule by (at various times) a very oppressive government out of Moscow.
I really don't think that the peoples of those former soviet republics are that easy to brainwash.
Naturally the USA and other western countries would welcome governments which are a bit more open to trade with the western countries, and I think most of all the Americans would welcome a similar relationship with Moscow. It doesn't mean that these countries give up any of their independence, identity or cultural practices. It just means they move further away from the old cold war mentality.

The Chevron Tengizchevoil consortium formed the Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC) in 1993 amid great fanfare. After years of haggling with the Kazakh government, Chevron finally constructed a pipeline from Tengiz on the Caspian's northeastern shore to the Russian port of Novorossiysk on the Black Sea. Following years of pressure, most members of the CPC group, including Chevron and Oman Oil Co, decided to not pursue future expansions of the CPC line.

Now, a decade later and with the scope of Kazakh oil deposits dwarfing any in the region, with its recent confirmed drillings in the Kashagan field, Nazarbayev has scored a political balance of power coup by turning to Beijing.

In October, Nazarbayev announced that CNPC had won the bid to buy PetroKazakhstan. What will be important to watch, now that Nazarbayev won re-election on December 4, further extending his 14-year reign, is to what extent Washington begins to play up "human rights abuses" by Nazarbayev.

A fledgling "Orange" revolution a la Ukraine has sprung up behind opposition candidate Zharmakhan Tuyakbai and his party, For a Just Kazakhstan. He came in second with 6.6% of the vote and cried fraud, but Washington's and the US media response were muted this time. Rice, in a major trip to shore up sagging US influence in Central Asia on October 10-13, held a private meeting with Tuyakbai. He is clearly being groomed for a possible future role, but clearly not yet. ...


... On July 29, Karimov announced he was evicting the US entirely from the airbase with a January 2006 exit date. In October, the US Senate, as retaliation, voted not to pay $23 million in base user fees to Uzbekistan for past use. Moscow and Beijing have both moved into the vacuum. A look at the map will indicate why. Uzbekistan is strategic for control or to prevent control by foreign powers such as Washington, of Central Asia and pipeline routes linking Russia, China and Kazakhstan. In October 2004, Moscow secured a long-term military base agreement to station troops in Dushanbe, the capital of nearby Tajikistan, a move by Russia to limit the spread of Washington-backed "color revolutions" in the region.

____________________________________________________________________________________

Democracy manipulators... main objective is not spreading democracy. It's a multi-purpose tool to attain objectives centered around US national interest. In color revolutions, it was to consolidate US position in central Asia by weakening Russia influence. We are not discussing whether Russia is on the right side or whether US is an honest nation.

Objectives centered around geopolitical presence and the control of the largest founding of oil reserves outside north sea and middle east. Grooming an obedient proxy is economically efficient than stage military offensive like those in Iraq.
