1953 Iranian coup d'Ã©tat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaThe 1953 Iranian coup d'état saw the overthrow of the democratically-elected government of the Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mosaddeq from power by British and American intelligence operatives working together with Iranian agents and elements of the Iranian army.  Kermit Roosevelt, Jr. of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), organized the covert operation - codenamed Operation Ajax -  by aiding retired Iranian General Fazlollah Zahedi and Imperial Guard Colonel Nematollah Nassiri, and bribing Iranian officials, news media and businessmen with British and American funds.
The coup has been called "a critical event in post-war world history." It reinstalled Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi as an absolute ruler , replacing an elected government with a pro-Western dictatorship, and is widely believed to have significantly contributed to the 1979 Iranian Revolution replacing the Shah with an anti-Western Islamic Republic.
Madeleine Albright apologized for this. Get with the program.

If you still want to deny truth and need more sources, let me know.
By the way, do you have any sources to show Iran is trying to overthrow the system we choose to have?
Maybe to someone who fails to remember why we invaded."The US has invaded both of Iran's neighbors, one with no justification."
By the way, how many nations has the Iranian military invaded?
Compared with the terrorism the US exports, such as Operation Ajax mentioned above, this is nothing that can stop talks from going forward. Also, Syria was not in the axis of evil, if you recall, and diplomatic efforts there have progressed despite the Israeli's taking Palestinian blood for election results."The US has called Iran a member of an axis of evil, obviously showing that anti-Iranianism is one of the main features of the US."
FALSE; the president labeled Iran as part of an axis of evil including North Korea and Syria. The PRESIDENTS statements were correct unless you want to provide something that disputes that Iran, Syria and North Korea have de-stabilizing policies that encourage terrorism.
By the way, North Korea didn't export terrorism. They did the smart thing and made WMD. So now we give them concessions.
Saddam was an idiot and actually thought that if he stopped the program, we might not invade.
He took the US at its word. What a dumbass.
How many taxes do Israelis pay to the US?"Since when are we talking about Israel?"
The notion that Israel is not a key issue in the Middle East Peace debate is nonsensical; since when are we NOT talking about Israel. Here's another clue for you, Iran's President has on numerous occasions spoken about Israel's destruction; more evidence of why Iran is part of the axis of evil.
I realize many Americans think we have to treat Israel like our children, but I disagree. They have nukes, they can take care of themselves.
Hopefully, yes."The President of Iran said that talks could begin, so long as they were based on mutual respect."
FALSE; the President of Iran described mutual respect as America apologizing for past oppressions and completely pulling out troops in the Middle East. Does this include Iran apologizing for the despicable taking of American soil/Embassy and holding our people hostage for over 430 days?
If he threatened to invade my nation I'd insult him as well."It also said the President of Iran sent several letters to our former President who didn't even bother to answer them."
They weren't answered because they were incoherent lunatic rants; did you bother to even read them?
Iran has seen how the world works."It's the US which has kept normalization from going forward, not the other way around. "
FALSE and ABSURD; it's Iran's purposeful efforts to develop nuclear weapons contrary to their agreements and UN resolutions against such actions. That combined with their lunatic rhetoric and assertions prevents any meaningful dialogue; the UN and European Union had taken over the negotiations and have gotten NOWHERE with these morons.
Iraq: No WMD program. Massive Invasion, hundreds of thousands dead and millions of refugees.
NK: Succesfull WMD program. Newfound respect and millions of tons of foreign aid.
Ah, yes.Your arguments can only be made in a vacuum of reality and the facts.
The world where the US does not invade countries around the world.
The world where Iran is at war with several nations surrounding the US.
The world where America wants peace.
What a joke. The last 6 years show what a hypocritical, self-indulging, gluttonous and downright stupid nation we can be at times.
