Based on what I read on a few blogs on here, some time this week was the 30th anniversary of the IRI. One of the self congratulating IRI IMAs (Internet Misinformation Agent) had written something about Iran having had resisted pressures from Israel and the U.S. for an overthrow of its government for the past 30 years and that itself was worth congratulations. Ha? Say what?
I got news for you buddy. IRI was and is an instrument of U.S. foreign policy. The Shah was kicked out by them (U.S.) for 2 reasons; 1) Oil 2) creation of an Islamic "green belt" so that Soviet Union of 1980s would not invade Iran the way the did in Afghanistan. To this end, they killed 10-20 thousand MKOs to make sure the idea of an Islamic-Marxist nation is buried.
The Shah, like it or not, was in effect the leader of OPEC. Increase in oil prices combined with lower production in the late 70s and early 80s would have crippled the U.S. economy and the world for that matter. Do you remember 12, 13, 14 and even 16% interest rates in the U.S.? Home loans at 11.5% were good deals then.
Recently released documents from the Ford and Carter eras clearly point to the reality that U.S. supported a "regime change" in Iran. What happened afterwards with the U.S. rejecting residency status to the Shah is another supporting fact. The U.S. even pressured Mexico and Panama to not allow Shah to stay there.
Although it may appear that Iran is a thorn in the side of the U.S., on the contrary, Iran is the best destabilizing force in the middle east. It keeps Russia and Arabs in check.
In 1951 or 1953 (don't remember which now) it cost CIA $400,000 to bring the Shah back. It probably cost the U.S. $40M to get rid of him and bring Khomeini to Iran. Not a bad deal considering depressed oil prices for decades.
None of these so called proud IRI supporters seem to remember Iran buying American and French made weapons from Israel a la "arms for hostages" deal. What?!! Iran dealing with Israel?!! No, jallal khalegh. Agha kofr migi.
I won't go as far as saying Khamenei and Ahmadinejad are Jews. But be certain Islamic Republic is a creation of the U.S. Khamenei and his filthy underlings are all in power because the U.S. wants them to be in power. No matter what and whom brought about the IRI, it was and is the
absolute worst thing that happened to Iran in the past 100 years. The minute they have served their purpose, they'll be gone.
I just hope that minute comes sooner than later.
