US Empire Is Running The Same Script With Iran That It Ran With Libya, Syria
Caitlin Johnstone

Literally just finished Mark Bowden’s book Guests of the Ayatollah tonight and it has some excellent insights into the Islamic revolution. What was initially supposed to bring reform instead brought Islamic theocracy. Women were reduced from equals to possessions and billions was squandered. These uprisings have been simmering since 1979 and the mistaken belief that the CIA and US Intelligence Services are omnipotent global puppet masters was in fact a major factor in the seizure of the US Embassy “den of spies” and the 444 days of paranoid detention. I wish the people of Iran nothing but the best in their quest for personal freedoms and for women to be restored as equals
