They say you learn a new thing every day. I just found that while Britain had already nationalized her own heavy industries, she opposed Iranian oil nationalization under Mosaddegh.
"The history of British nationalization began with 1) program formation during the 1930s and World War II; 2) widespread implementation in 1945-47; 3) scaled-back activities in 1947-51; 4) stagnation and program retreat in 1951-79; 5) privatization under Margaret Thatcher's government after 1979-1990; 6) Labor acceptance of privatization under Tony Blair."
Most Iranians are aware of the history of Iranian oil nationalization under Mosaddegh in the 1950’s. However, how many of you knew that while Britain had already nationalized her own heavy industries such as coal mining, she resisted Iranian oil nationalization, took Iran to the world court, lost the court battle, still took action such as freezing of the Iranian assets, Navy blockade in the Persian Gulf and the final blow of the 1953 coup d'état.
I can not help think of the following video on how a big truck just crushes a little one and moves on as if nothing happened: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5v7PEoVbfM. So, three hip-hip-hipocrits for the Brits at the bottom of the hypocrite pits.
Hearing news like this make one wonder "What if.....".
