According to the article linked below, the Left and its pawns preach an anti-American history of Iran that doesn’t match the facts. For example:
- We did not get involved in Iran to score oil, but to prevent a rogue Iranian dictator from allying with the Soviet Union.
- The CIA did not put the Shah into power; he got there because the people wanted him.
- The Shah was not a terrible tyrant who was ousted because of a popular uprising. He was ousted when Islamic extremists staged a violent coup that succeeded only because Jimmy Carter refused to lift a finger.
