To understand the situation in Iran today and the difficulties of U.S. relations with Iran, it helps to look at the role the U.S. played during the Shah’s regime and why the regime, which appeared strong, collapsed like a house of cards. The Shah’s “White Revolution” and the Nixon Doctrine are important to the story. The U.S. was comfortable working with a totalitarian state as long as it was anti-communist, and as a result huge, amounts of military hardware flowed into the Shah’s arsenal. Please watch the video and let me know what you think.
