Iran was about British oil--specificaly, a company called "BP", as in "British Petroleum"--not US oil, period. To claim that US oil interests were the cause of US intervention in Iran is just ridiculous.
Really? You do seem to ignore the fact that Anglo-Iranian lost it's oil monopoly and was forced into a joint venture with amongst others Gulf Oil, Socony-Mobil, Esso, Standard Oil of California, and Texaco after the coup?
And "intervention" amounted to little more than organizing a protest; the Iranian government was on its last leg anyway.
Hardly. Mosaddegh was apparently viewed as a hero at the time. He would have easily won any new election.
I don't watch Fox. But you obviously should stop listening to European neo-Marxist propaganda.
Fact is, most of the trouble spots in the world are the result of European fascism, European colonialism and European socialism.
Really? You sure sound like someone that watches Fox a lot. Please explain which trouble spots are caused by European Socialism.
The US is trying its best to keep things running, but Americans and American tax payers are running out of patience. If Europe doesn't like the way it's going, Europe should pay for its own damned military
The EU has a combined military budget of appx. 300 billion USD. That is about the same amount as the combined budgets of China, Russia, Japan, Saudi Arabia, India and Brazil together. Europe can defend itself just fine. It takes a whiny and ignorant American to pretend otherwise.
