The unseen pictures of 1953 coup d’état

After the coup, the Shah ruled as an monarch for the next 26 years while modernizing the country using oil revenues, until he was overthrown in the Iranian Revolution in 1979. The tangible benefits the United States reaped from overthrowing Iran’s elected government included a share of Iran’s oil wealth [clarification needed] and ensuring the Iranian nation remained under the control of an ally. Washington continually supplied arms to the Shah and the CIA-trained SAVAK, his secret police force; however by the 1979 revolution, his increasingly independent policies resulted in his effective abandonment by his American allies, hastening his downfall. The coup is widely believed to have significantly contributed to anti-American and anti-British sentiment in Iran and in the Middle East.

  2. اگر انصاف باشد شریف ترین سیاست پیشه در تایخ معاصر همانا ایشان است که از ابتدا تا آخر برانسان بودن و امنت داری ایستاد و جان و همه را فدا کرد .


      مصدق برابر با امیر کبیر بود مردی وطن پرست وشجاع وایران ازاین مردان کم دارد
