I think the first few

by pitt (not verified) on

I think the first few writers I truly loved when I was in my early teens became the bedrock of how I think that's how good writing is supposed to be. Later, I read everybody, but when I panic, I always come back to J.D. Salinger, John Updike, Francesca Lia Block, and Ernest Hemingway - // .

Remembering the National Front

Americans for a Democratic Republic in Iran.

Mossadegh's successor Mehdi Bazargan backed the end of the Iranian monarchy in Iran forever.

I applaud Mossadegh for standing up to the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and forcing the barbaric Shah into exile in Rome in 1953.

We all know the Shah was forced to return in 1953.  

And In 1979, 30 million Iranians kicked out the Shah.

In 1980 the Shah died in Egypt as an Egyptian citizen.  The Shah's wife Farah is still an Egyptian citizen with an Egyptian passport.

In 2009, President Hussein Obama sent a message to Ayat'Allah Khamenei.  In that message Obama wished Khamenei a happy new year.

It is time for Iran to open up and give America free Oil.
