Anyone else notice the similarity between what is going on off the coast of Iran right now
and what was going on in the late 1940s and 1950s
? Well, things aren't exactly the same. To me it is most definitely reminiscent to when Mossadegh
was named Prime Minister and began to start talks about nationalizing the oil industry that Britain had on lock down. Not to mention they were using basically slave Iranian labor and giving Iran very little of the profits. They soon started putting war ships off the coast to show their military might and did what they could to subvert any plans. I can't help but to think all this hoopla over the soldiers being held is largely being caused by wounds opened some 50 years ago.
