Rock the Casbah? Seriously, a new Arab Spring in Iran would be great about now.

The supreme leader of Iran is accusing the US of organizing the protests. We can barely get our own protest organizing shiat together.

Honestly, Khamenei better his act together before he goes Arial after being fired from a Trebuchet and dies on Impact.

I feel so bad for the people of Iran. Generally they are very educated, probably one of the more westernized countries in the Middle East (save Israel), many citizens have a strong affection toward the United States... and yet the leadership is brutal and backwards. 😢

They could have and should have been the West's best ally in the Middle East. Instead, we screwed them over and over again for decades so we could get their oil for practically nothing. I know the US hasn't always gotten everything right when it comes to what we've done to other countries over the years, but what we (and France and Great Britain) did to Iran is tragic as hell.

This is a country run according to religion. The rulers justify everything in the name of their religion. This is not supposed to happen in the USA, but both sides of the aisle here claim that what they do and say are justified "morally" by which they mean religious morals. They rarely justify anything because the people of the country need it to be done, or in the name of the principles on which the USA was founded.

Omar Sharif was hilarious because he was a serious actor.
Just watched him in Top Secret! again.  I made sure my daughters saw that movie more than once, even three times, you can't catch everything the first time. They would quote lines that their friend don't get.

The 80'-90's when Val Kilmer was still lucid and a real actor.

On the other hand, the US and the UK overthrew a freely elected Iranian leader who dared to demand Iran have total control of Iranian oil.

And in his place, they installed the their puppet the Shah and his brutal scum the Savak.  It took that kind of oppression to install the Ayatollah.

Just like Bin Laden, Kohmeni was a monster of the West's making.

Yeah, what made the movie Charlie Wilson's War so cringeworthy. Way to go, Charlie. Thanks for 9/11.

It would be more 1978.

The protests at Tehran University blew up into a full revolution in November 1978 and with the military joining the revolution in December, the Shah was all but gone by the start of 1979. The events and fighting of 1979 were about who would take power with Pahlavi gone.
