From a high-level diplomatic inquiry headed by Nicholas Browne, defence and diplomatic editor James Blitz discovers why the UK and US failed to see the coming Iranian revolution and what lessons can be learned for today.  (2m 49sec)

Nazi Era Dis-Information

by ayatoilet1 on

Everyone knows the Brits were behind the revolution, and that they engineered it and placed their puppet mullahs in power in Iran. This is simply Nazi-Era disinformation. Its complete bullshit. Minutes of the Guadeloupe meeting have been released between James Calaghan and other western leaders (including Jimmy Carter) who decided collectively (with British proding) to topple the Shah. Books have been published revealing the scheme. And there are trancrpts of direct interviews with retired British agents leaves no room for doubt. Who are they fooling ...they can fool the british public - they always do -- BUT not Iran's public. We know who is behind these mullahs.
