Just wanted to comment on your post on Google + regarding Argo. Argo was a really good movie. And people don't realize that Iran had a democratic election on the '50's, but once the president decided to keep the oil reserves for Iran, he was toppled by the CIA, who then installed the Shaw. His reign, of course, was a brutal and dictatorial one, and set the stage for not only Khomeini, but a new form of Islam that has spread throughout the Muslim world, a form that has nothing to do with the Koran or any form of Islam previously seen. The terrorist acts now routinely carried out by its followers can be traced back directly to the greed and short-sightedness of the US. But greed and short-sightedness (as most recently witnessed by the collapse in the economy) is our specialty.
