That said Constitutionally speaking it could be argued that it was not a "coup" but a "Counter Coup" ...

Isn't Calling for the Head of State's Death usually called "Treason"?


Either way I am afraid on the long term it was a No Win Win Outcome for all concerned be it Pro Shah or Pro Mossadegh.


Let's Just hope it will serve as a lesson for future generations.


No worries I enjoy your insightful comments.

History belongs to everyone.

Daruish Khan please don't take me wrong

I meant the 1953 coup that, thankfully, removed that demagogue Mosaddegh. As you keep reminding us it was an inevitable coup otherwise we would have fallen in the lap of the USSR. I said it in support of the coup not against it.

How was Nasser or King Hussein a result of CIA Coup ?

by Darius Kadivar on


Nasser was Pro Soviet and King Hussein Supported by the British where he was Educated in their Military Academy.

The Shah was Swiss Educated ...

Maybe That was his Major Shortcoming ...

The Shah was the Unsung Architect of the Middle East Peace Process for which he was never acknowledged.

Iran was the first muslim country to recognize Israel and we did not wait for an ARAB League's endorsement to see our Sovereign make a State Visit to Israel Decades before Camp David Accords ...
