Is this the real resson iran hate us ?
Not for are freedom or that we where christen nation. Is that we bleep then over.
For years, Britain had a spiffy trade deal with Iran regarding their prodigious oil fields. The Anglo-Iranian Oil Company was basically a giant money machine for the Anglo half, while the Iranian half got shafted. That all changed in 1951 when Iran nationalized the AIOC and the Iranian parliament elected Mohammed Mossadegh as Prime Minister. Mossadegh was relatively secular, something that pissed of Iranian clerics, but he was also very nationalistic. When Britain tried to regain control of the AIOC, he gave them the finger. Tea was spilled, crumpets were dropped and monocles everywhere popped out in shock.
You can guess what happened next. Jolly old England went to its ally, the United States, and convinced President Dwight D. Eisenhower to help overthrow the democratically elected leader of Iran and install a pro-West monarchy. Together the CIA and British intelligence services funneled guerrilla troops, anti-Mossadegh propaganda and tons of bribes into Iran.
How did that work out?
In the short term? Great! The mostly ceremonial position of Shah (king) of Iran was restored to its former imperial glory, but this time as a puppet of the West. The White House and Tehran became BFFs, and as long as the US government overlooked the numerous human rights abuses happening in Iran, all was well.
Until 1979, that is, when a pissed off Iranian populace finally revolted and replaced the monarchy with an anti-West Islamic Republic. One messy hostage crisis later, and Iran and the US were no longer BFFs. But hey, at least the US learned a very important lesson about overthrowing the governments of unfriendly Middle Eastern countries.
your telling if iran can to usa took out are gov? and force to live poor for 28 year would not be piss.
the shaw run country.

iranians have always hated britain because of their tricks and conspiracy in every aspect of relations, british have always tricked iran in trade treaties and military relations, they also made a food faminity in iran at world war 2's last year wich caused extreme hunger.
and 1979 reveloution had nothing to do with britania. people didnt realy know about any of the concepts you gestured, they were just brought to streets with promises of free money and prosperity! only in recent years iranians have been enlightened through development of mass mediaes like satelites and internet and there are still lots of ignorant people.
