How America Destroyed Iranian Democracy & Stole Their Future
By TLB Contributing Author: Ken LaRive
False flags have changed history, and our founding fathers knew well how dangerous they were. Many times they warned us to remain vigilant, knowing full well the difficulty of safeguarding against them. Yes, Iran is an enemy today, but it wasn’t always such. Once, they prided themselves in being moderate, and considered a veritable gateway between the Middle East and Europe. They dressed like any European, voted in elections, with civil liberty for all. We, the United States of America, Israel, Saudi Arabia, England, France, and the Dutch… annihilated all of it. Why? Because they did not want to pay the royalties asked by their duly elected President, for the oil being taken from their shores. At the time they were considered three in oil potential, with Saudi as number one….
One might think such a ploy would be found only in the desperations of a rogue nation, but our history is tainted by many U.S. false flag operations, sometimes propelling us to war. Some were planned and never carried out, some went array, and others found their mark. The following is one major instance that still haunts us today, though its history isn’t taught in Progressive classrooms. This travesty, and the Bolsheviki Revolution, will define America, and its deep state.
In 1953 Iran’s parliament, called Majilis, had nationalized the petroleum industry so that profit would remain Iran’s instead of the United Kingdom. Since 1913 the oil industry there had been controlled by the British Government, and they did not want to lose that control and the flow of oil. Something had to be done.
In the 1950’s the New York Times broke a story called, Iranians working for the C.I.A.. They made known a coup d’état that had deposed the democratically elected government of the Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mosaddeq. It was called Operation Ajax.
Iran is a rich and ancient culture.
Winston Churchill had considered seizing the island of Abadan to regain control, but the then Prime Minister Clement Attee declined that plan for one of economic boycott. Churchill then tried to enlist the US in planning a coup, but Harry S. Truman declined. Dwight D. Eisenhower picked up the baton and used the CIA for its supposed first ever covert operation to overthrow a foreign government. With the help and sanction of the British Government, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi (The Shaw of Iran) become an authoritarian monarch. He ruled Iran for the next 26 years until he was overthrown in 1979. The U.S. got a foot-hold there, and together took the lion’s share of the profits with the UK, French, and Dutch splitting the rest.
After the coup, the Consortium Agreement of 1954 ended the crisis, and cemented this alliance until 1957 when it was modified. The Agreement came to an abrupt ending, however, with the Iranian Revolution. The blow-back came as the pro-Western-pro-Israel Shaw was replaced with an anti-Western anti-Zion Islamic Republic.
Note: According to the historian Mark Gasiorowski:
“It is often argued that the main motive behind the coup was the desire of U.S. policy makers to help U.S. oil companies gain a share in Iranian oil production … it seems more plausible” the U.S. policymakers “were motivated mainly by fears of a communist takeover in Iran.”
In 2000, U.S. Secretary Madeline K. Albright stated:
“In 1953 the United States played a significant role in orchestrating the overthrow of Iran’s popular Prime Minister, Mohammed Massadegh. The Eisenhower Administration believed its actions were justified for strategic reasons; but the coup was clearly a setback for Iran’s political development. And it is easy to see now why many Iranians continue to resent this intervention by America in their internal affairs.”
The Shah came to power during World War II after an Anglo-Soviet invasion forced the abdication of his father, Reza Shah. Mohammad Reza Shah’s rule oversaw the nationalization of the Iranian oil industry under the prime ministership of Mohammad Mosaddeq. During the Shah’s reign, Iran marked the anniversary of 2,500 years of continuous monarchy since the founding of the Persian Empire by Cyrus the Great. His White Revolution, a series of economic and social reforms intended to transform Iran into a global power, succeeded in modernizing the nation, nationalizing many natural resources and extending suffrage to women, among other things. However, the decline of the traditional power of the Shi’a clergy due to parts of the reforms increased opposition.
The coup inhibited the country to grow economically, and in the desperation, opened the door to a radical church-state movement that has set them back socially to the dark ages, with only remnants of western thought remaining. This ruminant is being quelled by a totalitarian regime, and they are fueling resentment for western involvement in the middle east, and our association with Israel, who they consider usurpers, tyrants, slavers, and terrorists.
None of this would have occurred if we would have paid for the oil, and not stolen it. It promoted a small and obscure English Oil Company to grow into the Megalithic, British Petroleum.
Amazing how we can create a monster, steal their land, resources, kill their children, and find it so surprising when they try to bite back. How unforgiving.
From the Author, Ken LaRive – We in the Liberty movement have been fighting to take back this country for less than a decade, peacefully and with the love of God and country in our hearts. Our banner has been trampled on and displaced by a multitude of distractions, further eroding our nation and the cause for Liberty. And so, as we are pulled by forces we cannot fathom, powerful entities with unlimited resources stolen from our future, unaccountable trillions printed out of thin air and put on our backs as debt, we must formulate the most pitiful of all questions any patriot might ask in the final hour: Are we going to fight for our master’s tyranny, or are we going to demand the return of our civil liberties and Constitution? Are we going to choose The Banner of Liberty, or the shackles of voluntary servitude? Will it be a war for corporate profit, or a war to regain our ability to self govern, as the blood and toil of our forefathers presented to us, their children, as a gift? I fear that decision is emanate. I fear that any decision will be a hard one, but my greatest fear of all is that the decision has already been made for us.

Each learned experience cleaves a facet on its face, and leaves it changed forever. Through this facet, this clear window, new light, new questions and ideas take shape and form. This process is our reason for being …

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … TLB
