Yeah, Persians are basically white people. All of this because of oil politics and because we can't admit we were wrong to support the Shah, and we can't back down.

This was Carter's mess, and Carter was a Deep State employee. One of their first wave.

"Modern" Iran is fun to look at, if only because it seems so alien to me. Here are some more pictures if anyone is curious: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=351718&page=55

Sorry I have no idea how to embed images or use a spoiler tag. Never could figure out reddit style formatting.

Just got finished saying that. Persians are not Arabs. Most of the Jews that live in Iran are woke and they're holocaust deniers.

Most Persians love Americans.

Er some very white looking people in those photos. Just wondering how much of all that progress is down to the whites living there rather than Islam taking over.

And where are those whites (and descendents) now ?

You've got it backwards, the CIA installed the Shah in 1953.

He was a sick fuck, but he modernized Iran big time.

By installing the Shah, the CIA killed the Iranian democracy. Yes, Iran was heading for a modern western democracy, and then the CIA astroturfing campaign replaced it with a puppet dictator (the Shah). If it were not for the CIA, those women in those pics would not only have looked like western women, they would also have voted like western women.

The revolution the United States Government started so BP could keep its oil fields, removing the democratically elected president and progressive government and replacing it with a dictatorship.

The CIA did the 1953 coup. The 1979 revolution by islamists then overthrew the CIA puppet dictatorship. Interestingly, many Iranian jews joined the revolutionaries in 1979.

Historically jews have been very supportive of muslims and their conquests, specially of Jerusalem which is why it's of no suprise that the supposed first mosque ever built, Al-Aqsa mosque was built on the temple mount, obviously the conquering muslims at that time was heavily influenced by jews.

They wish they'd be so lucky to maintain living conditions like iran. When they are taking in mostly grown men from somalian and north africa. Their future is more likely to look like this: https://kek.gg/i/qw2zK.jpg

Completely agree, but it won't just be the "refugees" living like that. It'll be most residents when economy collapses supporting them.

Well they needed America to give them some freedom...

Seriously, we installed a dictator who was still secular like the last guy...only he fucked the economy up making america friendly business deals instead of taking care of Iranians.

In the case of Iran, the US took freedom away from them, by replacing an early democracy with a brutal puppet dictator.

Yup and Saudi Arabia has been shit for centuries. BUT....WE have given them arms and support ever since the cold war. And they in turn have spread wahabism the most violent/inbred/retarded version of Islam there is.

They did support us against Russia in the cold war...But that's not a reason to give them a pass on all the shit they've pulled since.
