in response to reader comment: Marshall Plan & Possible Sources of Enmity

The CIA was very much involved with the toppling of Shah Palevi's predecessor who was, believe it or not, a secular cleric, but unfortunately he also had an inclination towards socialism. Back in the 1950's that was a no-no and to prevent Iran from possibly falling into the domain of the Soviets, the CIA instigated a coup d'etat and installed the Shah who favored the West----gee I wonder why??!!
