Good summary of Iran/US relations.
Can't access that article currently - does it include Britain's involvement?
Iran's oil was once under control of Britain. After Mossadegh nationalised Iran's oil (because Britain refused to properly share with Iran) it was the British that wanted Mossadegh removed the most. Britain approached America for help, but the British instigated and were full partners in the overthrow. Obviously the overthrow was successful, and Britain continued its economic rape of Iran for a while longer...until Khomeini's takeover.
So what's the plan, turn Iran into another basket case like Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan?
Besides theft, I wonder if that was part of the plan when Britain overthrew Iran's popularly supported government?
E: Double-post, lol.
