This article is in keeping with my own readings from 20 years ago, listed in the reference section: CIA Cemented Ayatollahs’ Hold on Power in Iran , and The Jihad Schoolbook Scandal . The empire’s dealings with the middle east have been exceeding treacherous but well suited to maintaining a constant state of tension and control of the region (as well as the USA itself). I’d only take issue with the author’s implication that the mullahs know who their master is. It’s only necessary to manipulate money flows to a cause in order to control it, but anonymity is essential in the operation. The same principle holds here at home. The strategy of wealth is infiltration.
Real history is often just another conspiracy theory.
“The Globalist Hand Behind The Iranian Mullahs
“The mainstream history of the U.S.-Iranian conflict is that Iran’s democracy was destroyed in 1953 as a result of a British-U.S. coup that put the despotic Shah in power to obediently serve his colonial masters, an act which was avenged a generation later by the fiercely independent and militant Iranian mullahs, led by Ayatollah Khomeini.
“This simplistic and narrow-minded narrative omits indisputable historical evidence which shows that Iran’s fundamentalist clerics have never been independent and militant vis-à-vis the West, but rather have remained subservient to U.S.-British geopolitical interests and goals in the region while pretending to represent the people of Iran and the religion of Islam.”
