Here is a famous quote from Truman after learning of the Frankenstein he had created with forming the CIA

“I never would have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence Agency back in forty-seven, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo.”
~ Harry S. Truman
(1884-1972), 33rd US President

It was one of those rare events where a democrat not only understood the evils of their expanding government, he admitted to it publicly.

Everyone knows about Operation Ajax.. I don't know how the Brits suckered Eisenhower into this folly. Americans all over the ME and in the oil business were furious.
Everyone? Try asking the average American

The average American is taught how to be woke, not world history and not to think critically.

They are taught on how to all think the same and not question the authority that controls their thoughts.

The operation was initiated by the Brits who wanted to preserve their influence on Iranian oil sector. Mossadegh was considered to be leaning toward socialism and the Americans didn't want his influence to become stronger.

The operation was well organized and realized. Almost a textbook for a covert operations of this type.

According to Stephen Kinzer, author of the book All the Shah's Men, Kermit Roosevelt, the grandson of the Progressive Teddy Roosevelt, quickly seized control of the Iranian press by buying them off with bribes and circulating anti-Mossadegh propaganda. He recruited allies among the Islamic clergy, and he convinced the shah that Mossadegh was a threat.

Hmm. Sounds almost like what they did to Trump.

Yes, it was corporate driven.

It is the same reason Obama took out Gaddafi.

Some things never change.

General Swartzkopf's father helped Kermit with the bribes and the training of the SAVAK.

Obama didn't take out Gadaffi.. You know as much about Libya as you knew about Operation Ajax.

They painted Mossadeeg as a Communist because the Brits wanted to continue paying 6 cents on the dollar in oil revenues.

So Obama bombing the hell out of Libya had nothing to do with Gaddafi losing power.

Good to know.

Why did he do it then and why did Gaddafi fall shortly afterwards?

I and most people read about it in the 1960's. We saved Iran from being turned into a Soviet puppets state under Mosadegh, which of course was a good thing. Most commies now like to pretend it was 'bad n stuff' and 'all about the money', but as usual they're mostly dumbass deviants and bedwetters parroting old Pravda rubbish hoping to sound like they're 'wise' or something.

Ironically, America was formed after the Boston Tea Party which was a revolt against a British corporation the East Indies Co. obtaining a monopoly on tea.

Corporations are nothing more than weaponized private industry created by the state to do their own bidding.

What leads you to believe they would have been puppets for the Kremlin?

They painted Mosadegh as a puppet socialist who would have relied on the Communists to form a government and would have been their butt boi, especially when they hit the streets with their stockpiles of arms and and' prurged all da evul imperialsts' from the country, using the usual mass murders commies so love. You of course are a big fan of that stuff, hence your silly lies and nonsense posts.

Well, there would have been no coup if the Iranians had simply pleased the British and the Americans and obeyed them.

The United States after World War II decided to become the world's big brother, suggesting what kind of government was best for various nations. If necessary, it would encourage coups, as in Iran, Chile, and Vietnam.

Why blame only the CIA?

At the turn of the 20th century, Mexico had a democratically elected president named Francisco Madero. The army did not like him. It wanted to overthrow him. The American ambassador said it would be fine with him. So the army did. It also murdered the president. Why? Because he tried to escape. Yeah, right!

The Communists had some 45% of the votes, Mosadegh maybe 10%. It's not a 'belief', it's a political reality on the ground at the time. The Mullahs in that day were on our side then.

Iran nationalized their oil, which kicked the UK out.

Gaddafi did the same.

Was Gaddafi a puppet of the Kremlin as well?
