It's a very simple concept that may become very complex if we get into its details but without digging too much into it it's hard to believe that the IRI is the real problem the US (to be more accurate the Anglo-EU-American Establishment) is facing.
When you look at its progression and when you compare it to other Middle Eastern nations, it seems that the US has 'always' had issues with with all and every single Iranian government, both with the Pahlevi Monarchy and with the IRI.
If they had no interest in Iran's politics why would they go after Mosadegh?If the Pahlevi monarchy, regardless of our personal opinion about it was really pro-American and an American Puppet why would they (Americans) allow its collapse? If their problem was the IRI why on earth they didn't take care of it in the last three decades?
Why is it that the Iranian nuclear program has become such a big issue when one of the most unstable and dangerous countries in the Middle East (Pakistan) has it? Do you see the progression? There's always a problem with Iran regardless of who and what shape of government is in charge of it. But why Iran? Why not Egypt or Turkey ? (you may say well, they don't have oil) but what about the Saudia Arabia or the UAE and Kuwait? They 'do' have oil in abundance. Therefore 'oil' cannot be the only factor, neither is the Persian Gulf or the Caspian sea. It seems to me that the real problem the hidden powers of the world have with Iran is actually its people and its 'essence'. What does this have anything to do with their policies? Well, to make it clearer they very much disliked Mosadegh, for obvious reasons but we should bear in mind that Mosadegh was a nationalist and so are millions and millions of Iranians and 'that' is their problem. If I were a business man trying to take over another business I wouldn't like that business to have couple of very smart and intelligent lawyers, they could be a problem. I would wish they were all a bunch of jackasses, party goers whose concerns weren't those of their company they are working for, that way I could bribe them, threaten them, scare them and also 'promise' false promises to them, promises the same level of their intelligence and or view. Now, the smart lawyers if beside being smart were loyal to their company, I'd definitely have to get rid of them. When Mossadegh said and did things they didn't like they got rid of him. Later The Pahlevi Monarchy had the same fate (I've always refused to believe a revolution took place in Iran) mainly because they also had nationalistic views and wanted to put them into practice. The IRI, however hasn't accomplished its real mission, somewhere along the way their arabization of Iran has gone sour,although severe damage has been caused they haven't managed to kill the Iranian nationalism (not to be confused with anti-Western rhetoric and Shiite fervor)
In the film Syrianna there's a dialog between the Arab prince and the Oil company consultant. The prince asks: what to you (American and westerners in general) think of us? to which the consultant answers: we think that 100 years ago you were here in the desert living in tents and chopping each other's head off and in another 100 years you'll be chopping each other's head again. Now, I think the consultant couldn't say the same thing about Iran but he'd wish that in another 50 or 100 years Iran be just that, somewhere where people are too busy fighting each other in a tribal way. That's their whole problem, Iran doesn't want to be arabized, Iranians do think and care and because of their rich past and history do have this sense of pride that they are none less than anyone in the West. That attitude and mind-set is a problem and that's the real enemy (so long as there's oil, of course!)
