Reader comment on item: "Death to America"

Submitted by Phil (United Kingdom), Nov 29, 2011 at 20:01

The war of terror by the USA on the Muslim world started much earlier than 1979. It was already being waged in 1953 with the US coup against the Iranian people and the theft of Iranian oil for 25 years. Then the US sponsored secret police called SAVAK terrorized the Iranian people for 25 years by torturing people snatched off the street and executing large numbers of people too.

USA equipped and launched the Iraqis in a war against Iran that killed millions. USS Vincennes also shot down an Iranian airliner in Iran's air space whilst being illegally stationed in Iran's territorial waters.

All the blame for the problems between USA and Iran lie squarely on the shoulders of the USA.
