    It’s rough when the folks running the only filling station in town are crazy, and the only alternatives to buying there are condemned for being librul plots to take our freedom.

    That is perhaps the most twisted interpretation of history I’ve ever seen.

    If you mean Iran, Mossedec was not a “commie.” He was a nationalist that made him dangerous to the colonial powers. It was Britain that cajoled the USA into over throwing an elected govt in Iran returning their beloved Fascist, Reza Pahlavi that led directly to Iran becoming an “Islamic Republic.” Just another form of dictatorship.

    Mohammad Rezā Shāh Pahlavī *(Persian: محمدرضا شاه پهلوی, [mohæmˈmæd reˈzɒː ˈʃɒːhe pæhlæˈviː]; 26 October 1919 – 27 July 1980) was the ruler of Iran (Shah of Iran) from 16 September 1941 until his overthrow by the Iranian Revolution on 11 February 1979. He took the title Shāhanshāh (“Emperor” or “King of Kings”)1 on 26 October 1967. He was the second and last monarch of the House of Pahlavi of the Iranian monarchy. *Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi held several other titles, including that of Aryamehr (Light of the Aryans) and Bozorg Arteshtārān (Head of the Warriors, Persian: بزرگ ارتشتاران).2

    Mohammad Reza Pahlavi came to power during World War II after an Anglo-Soviet invasion forced the abdication of his father Reza Shah. During Mohammad Reza’s reign, the Iranian oil industry was briefly nationalized under the democratically elected Prime Minister *Mohammad Mosaddegh before a US-backed coup d’état deposed Mosaddegh and brought back foreign oil firms,3 and Iran marked the anniversary of 2,500 years of continuous monarchy since the founding of the Persian Empire by Cyrus the Great. As ruler, he introduced the White Revolution, a series of economic, social and political reforms with the proclaimed intention of transforming Iran into a global power and modernizing the nation by nationalizing certain industries and granting women suffrage.

    There is no evidence of an Iranian nuclear bomb. NONE. Until then they are doing everything they can to destroy Iran without the use of other weapons.

    The US called anyone a “Communist” who they didn’t like. If they dealt with the USSR it was doubly so. The USA did not like the locals thinking our country was their country. Whatever country that may be. The hubris of empire.

    Ah. It was intentionally twisted. May I suggest you familiarize yourself with Poe’s law? Your method just doesn’t work on the internet.
