    No, he really hasn't changed much at all. He's just goofy.

    I never said you did. I knew as I wrote that line that you would retort in defense this exact way. I was simply putting the context around the history that you clearly don't know.

    Bullcrap. His overthrow was because he left the country for medical treatment and the people of Iran hated him so much that they allowed his enemy in to replace him.

    No, but he punished them for wearing non-western garb. He instituted laws in 1929 and 1935 that women and men had to NOT wear veils and to wear European styled hats.

    The Shah was brutal to his people and for some reason you want to blame Carter on that. The only argument you made was "this happened in Iran when Carter was president in the U.S. therefore it is Carter's fault. Your extremely flawed logic simply doesn't fly.

    I'll pass on your right-wing propaganda site. Thx tho. Besides, of the two of us, I'm not the one lacking in the historical knowledge of this topic.
