A brief history of US intervention in Iran (1953 - present day)

A brief history of US intervention in Iran (1953 - present day)

(9:48) Considering that Iran is sabre-rattling over newly imposed sanctions, it is useful to have a basic overview of the history that has brought us to this moment.

Britain and France are in the European Union with Italy and Germany. Vietnam and Japan have full diplomatic relations with the U.S. But the Iranians are miffed over a coup that happened 59 years ago. That sounds reasonable. Maybe the French should threaten to nuke the Brits over Agincourt, 1415?

Dude, you can't ask an entire people to change their way of looking at vengeance, overnight. You can't change a nation's version, as the people see it, of how things happened and who is to blame and what should be done. Idiot.

We rob them of their resources - we force them to elect leaders that are good for us - we place sanctions on them - we starve their population - we bomb them, poison their water and throw depleted uranium materials on them, we use white phosphor, we gang up by blackmailing other countries and send fake inspector reports of illegal weapons - WE HAVE NO IDEA WHY THEY HATE US! - it must be OUR way of life they seek. We are a World embarrassment - NOBODY WANTS TO BE LIKE US!

This is very pro-Iran, but it's nice to see this side of the argument for a change. Western news gets so ******* boring. "LA LA LA KILL EVERYONE WHO'S DIFFERENT"

This is just international politics. Today, they are our friends, tomorrow, they are our enemies. Depending on what they have to offer us, or the risk they pose. And it's going to continue that way.
