    An excellent video that basically covers U.S. and Israeli involvement in Iran's internal affairs over the last 60 years.

    How is it stupid ? It's true. The Persian people have brutally oppressed it's neighbors for millenia and for the last few centuries they're getting a taste of their own medicine.

    The United States didn't exist, nor did modern Israel and the UK either.

    But they sure had no problem attempting to destroy Western civilization though.

    But all hail Alexander the Great !

    Incorrect.

    Nader Shah, who ruled Iran from 1736–47, conquered parts of Pakistan, Turkey, and Iraq. He started the Afsharid Dynasty, which ruled until 1750. They were replaced by the short-lived Zand dynasty.

    [​IMG]

    The Zand Dynasty gave way to another monarchy, the Qajar dynasty, which ruled from 1794-1925. During this period, the Persian Empire conquered territory from the Mughal Empire in Pakistan, but lost territory to the Russians.

    [​IMG]

    In 1925, the Qajar dynasty was overthrown by Reza Khan, the father of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Reza Khan was overthrown by the USSR in World War II.

    In 1951, Mossadegh was elected prime minister. In 1953 (where the video conveniently starts), Mossadegh was overthrown by Reza Pahlavi, son of the old monarch, in a US-sponosred coup.


    As you can see, Iran has a very violent history. The myth of a "peaceful Iran" dies here.
