The first National Consultative Assembly (the Majles)
was opened in October of that year.
The new constitution provided a framework for secular legislation, a new judicial code, and a free press.
All these reduced the power of the royal court and religious authorities and placed more authority in the hands of the Majles, which, in turn, took a strong stand against European intervention.

Intent on ensuring the safe passage of U.S. war mat?riel to the Soviet Union through Iran, the Allies forced Reza Shah to abdicate, placing his young son Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi on the throne.
Mohammad Reza Shah succeeded to the throne in a country occupied by foreign powers, crippled by wartime inflation, and politically fragmented.
Following the war, a loose coalition of nationalists, clerics, and noncommunist left-wing parties, known as the National Front, coalesced under Mohammad Mosaddeq, a career politician and lawyer who wished to reduce the powers of the monarchy and the clergy in Iran. Most important, the National Front, angered by years of foreign exploitation, wanted to regain control of Iran's natural resources, and, when Mosaddeq became prime minister in 1951, he immediately nationalized the country's oil industry.

Britain, the main benefactor of Iranian oil concessions, imposed an economic embargo on Iran and pressed the International Court of Justice to consider the matter.
The court, however, decided not to intervene, thereby tacitly lending its support to Iran.
British leaders Winston Churchill and Anthony Eden pushed for a joint U.S.-British coup to oust Mosaddeq, and the election of President Dwight D. Eisenhower in the United States in November 1952 bolstered those inside the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) who wished to support such an action.
Within Iran, Mosaddeq's social democratic policies, as well as the growth of the communist Tudeh Party, public support was important to Mosaddeq's government.
In August 1953, following a round of political skirmishing, Mosaddeq's quarrels with the shah came to a head, and the Iranian monarch fled the country.
Almost immediately, despite still-strong public support, the Mosaddeq government buckled during a coup funded by the CIA. Within a week of his departure, Mohammad Reza Shah returned to Iran and appointed a new prime minister.
Nationalization under Mosaddeq had failed, and after 1954 a Western multinational consortium led by British Petroleum accelerated Iranian oil development.
The National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) embarked on a thorough expansion of its oil-production capacities. NIOC also formed a petrochemical subsidiary and concluded agreements, mainly on the basis of equal shares, with several international companies for oil exploitation outside the area of the consortium's operations.
Petroleum revenues were to fuel Iran's economy for the next quarter of a century. There was no further talk of nationalization, as the shah firmly squelched subsequent political dissent within Iran. In 1957, with the aid of U.S. and Israeli intelligence services, the shah's government formed a special branch to monitor domestic dissidents.

This apparent success, however, veiled deep-seated problems. World monetary instability and fluctuations in Western oil consumption seriously threatened an economy that had been rapidly expanding since the early 1950s and that was still directed on a vast scale.
. A decade of extraordinary economic growth, heavy government spending, and a boom in oil prices led to high rates of inflation, and

The Western-educated elite fled the country.
Anti-Western sentiment eventually manifested itself in the November 1979 seizure of the U.S. embassy by a group of Iranian protesters demanding the extradition of the shah, who at that time was undergoing medical treatment in the United States. Through the embassy takeover, Khomeini's supporters could claim to be as

The radicals and terrorists I am referring to are those who are chosen to use the power of the white house. They are bolshivists, zionists and trotskyite revolutionaries who have taken over the key organs of power and using the power of America to carry on their revolution.

Being careful isnt a weakness. Being overlly suspicious or unable to trust others may be. There is a difference.
One of the reasons they are progressing well is because they are very careful. That is a strength.

Russia is recovering from, in some respects, what the US is being destroyed by. Bush is careful to destroy while Putin is carefully rebuilding.

What Wolfowitz, Gonzales Can Learn From Imus: Margaret Carlson


In the real world, it takes about a week for someone who has disgraced himself like radio talk-show host Don Imus to lose his job. In Washington, World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz and to Gonzales hang on to their jobs for what seems like forever.

His legal team was unwilling to bend the rules, so he took it upon himself to dictate the terms.

Petty corruption is never good but is particularly bad for Wolfowitz, who has made ending corruption in foreign countries his signature mission.

The architect of the war in Iraq and peddler of all its false pretenses get off scot-free and with a plum job to boot. After all, the Medal of Freedom was awarded to others incriminated in the Iraq debacle.

Wisconsin Outrage

What's interesting now is what those prosecutors who didn't get fired may have done to keep their jobs. The U.S. attorney in Milwaukee, Steven Biskupic, charged a 56-year-old woman with corruption for awarding a contract to Adelman Travel.`The facts and common sense are all it takes to see that both Wolfowitz and Gonzales should resign. Instead, they have barricaded themselves in their offices, with the president's approval, impervious to shame or calls from their own party for them to go.
