Iran is having its George Floyd moment. Russia is having its Vietnam moment.
Out of all the Muslim countries, Iran & Lebanon were the most liberal. I strongly believe that Iran should be America’s greatest ally (like it was before the revolution), rather than Saudi Arabia. Side note on the Islamic revolution, it originally was a socialist/ communist revolution. Which was then Hijacked by the Islamist’s. Also Mossadeq was more socialist then communist. Also the other consideration for the coup was their possible support for the Soviet Union giving them warm water harbors, aside from the nationalization of oil.
