Revisiting history....

A recent documentary confirming the CIA and MI6 involvement in the coup of 1953 and subsequent overthrow of the democratically elected prime minister Dr. Mossadegh.

 

The overthrow of the democratically elected government of the state by the US and the british government is misrepresented by a propaganda machine and certain news outles that Iran was on the verge of falling to the hands of communists and replicating a gulags system similar to USSR back then. This is a total fabrication to perpetuate a confusion and divert attention from the fact that the brits were actually pissed off with Mossadegh nationalising Iran's oil.

Gee...who knew that the UN Iran Crisis of 1946 was fabricated by the rest of the planet to make Mossadeq and his Tudeh allies look bad 7 years later.

Its sick to claim Iran is the key for ME peace, for a country which is murdered about 500.000 civilians until now together Syrian Army.

First off the allegation is ridiculous. It is Bashir Assad not Iran. Iran revolutionary guards (not Iran but a branch of armed forced) joined the conflict recently and fighting against ISIS and Assad's opposition. It was Russia, the only foreign power who bombed civilians and killed hundreds.

Second whether you like it or not Iran is a Middle East superpower. There will be no peace in Syria, Yemen, Iraq or Afghanistan without Iran who enjoys a great influence in all those conflicts.

He was talking about 1953 not 1946. There are two separate issues 7 years apart. In 1946 the Soviets stayed in Azeri province and refused to take their army out. So a complaint was logged with UN and Soviets had to withdraw and then the Shah sent his army to defeat the rebels in that province (very unpopular with the population I might add) and re-captured the Iranian territory. I am sure Mossadegh was backing all that efforts to keep Iran's territorial integrity. But in 1953 the crisis was that a democratically elected government who nationalized Iran's oil industry and stopped it from being robbed by the damn colonial power (the damn British PM Winston Churchill, hope his soul burn in hell forever) was overthrown by a military coup (similar to 1973 coup against popular government of Allende in Chile) which was sponsored by CIA and supported by British. 

Down with Russia, USA and Britain. I hope all three pay a heavy price for the atrocities they have committed over many decades against many weaker nations whose only guilt was to have a desire to become free and independent.

Yeah, Mossadeq would have just been a toddler in 1946.

The pro-conflict fanatics in the US and Iran are strong right now. Both want brinkmanship but not outright war to strengthen their domestic positions. Unfortunately, the Straits of Hormuz are, as described, a narrow waterway and right next to Iran so the possibility of catastrophic miscalculation has risen considerably.

A new difficulty for both Iran and the US is the plebiscite in Kurdish Iraq. At the moment, they both oppose the vote but, given the support the Kurds have rendered against ISIL, Trump will be under tremendous pressure to return the favour.

Iran is just another shitty country in the World that causing problems. It cannot be an actor in something related to "peace" and "justice". Like as many other countries. Its just another shitty regime that have to be destroyed sooner or later but for sure.

Do not attack the country or its nation who are the real victims in all these. It is not any worse than Turkey but rather much better. I had a friend who visited Turkey Iran and Pakistan who said Iran was the best among the three and Turkey the worse as the latter being most corrupt and he was welcomed by throwing rocks at him on the Turkish roads and the former the friendliest and safest. The Superpowers play politics in the world like a game of chess and the weak nations become victims. If it wasn't for the US sponsored military coup in 1953 Iran would have been as good as any European country now.You should know better.

You are lucky that I don't know how to give a negative point as your post above for sure deserves one.

The Iranians are naturally going to support the Shia side in most conflicts. If they don't who else will? That doesn't make all these groups 'terrorists'. For example, in Yemen the Iranian-backed Houthis control Northern Yemen and the Sunnis control Southern Yemen. The sensible thing would be to repartition the country.
