Many may not remember that before the Iranian Revolution, the United States and Iran were major allies.
Iran was once a powerful ally of the United States. During the Cold War, the United States supported, in some cases “propped up,” friendly governments as bulwarks against the Soviet Union. And in some of those cases the United States found itself supporting very unpopular, repressive regimes. The Shah of Iran falls into this category.
His government was toppled in 1979 and was eventually replaced by another repressive regime… but this time the leadership was deeply anti-American. The Ayatollah Khomeini became the ruler of Iran. And he gave many Americans their first glimpse of radical Islam.
This for the most part is tongue in cheek. Why?
One thing is certain, nothing will happen with a “Closet Muslim,” still remaining in the Oval Office.
It may well be that the U.S. and Iran become allies once again because of the threat the Islamic State poses to the region.
