History of U.S. Intervention in Iran - 1953 Until Present

This video is a basic overview of U.S. imperialism toward Iran that
began at the behest of the British Government and big oil interests
including British Petroleum also recently known as BP.

The
United States' own CIA led it's first coup to overthrow a foreign leader
against Mohammad Mosaddegh in 1953, The U.S. has suffered "Blowback:
ever since, all the while the supposed leaders in Washington continue to
demonize Iran's leaders on flimsy grounds as more pretense to continued
Middle East war and occupation by the U.S.

  • All true,but very naive to think that getting chummy with Iran will solve the problems of the region.
    Iran has it's own ambitions of Empire and it's not for the good of their neighbors.

  • I've read that last time around BP made the highest dollar amount for a US Presidential candidate it's made, so far, to Obama. He'll go in if he's told and so would Mittney.

  • Iran is a terrorist state who has ill intentions against Israel, the West, and their neighbors. Iran should be turned into a giant glass bowl before they can develop a fully functional nuclear missile.

  • Right. Three CIA agents with a grand total budget of $50K were able to single-handedly overthrow the govt?

    The real reason the 'overthrow' happened was because there was a sizable anti-govt faction in Iran who were ready, willing and able to overthrow Mosaddegh. Mosaddegh stole billions in British oil exploration investments by "nationalizing" BP, thus had made himself the number one enemy of Britain.

    The British were powerless and tried for years to convince President Truman to do More..
