'that didnt happen under the Shah's rule? ha ha aha youve got to be kidding
The Savak was just sunday school of course..
Btw as a student of history youve avoided the main point..
That is that in '53 US overthrew a democratically elected Iranian govt..
and installed the Shah
that is not an overgeneralization it is history.

great threat to USA after 911? ok Im against nuclear proliferation.. but basically by invading Iraq - the US has in fact increased the danger.. the invasion spurred North Korea to develop the bomb (which they got to keep after the US finally started negotiating with them)..
the war became a cause celebre for radical muslims everywhere
as witnessed by the increased number of bombings and incidents around the world (Bali, London, Casablanca, Egypt, Turkey, Madrid etc).

The unintended consequence of Iraq is that Iran now ends up with far more influence and close relations with the Shiite majority, as well as in Kurdistan.
