Iran overthrowing the theocracy is great, but why do so many assume a secular iran will be our friend?

They are still pretty pissed about the whole operation ajax and 20 years of savak brutality thing.
Update: They were our friend because the shah dictatorship was our friend. The shah was kim jong un level crazy. He would have his secret police rape and beat you to death simply for disagreeing with him.
