When Iran was our “Friend”

1 Apr

Blast from the Past.  When Iran was still our “Friend” in the world.

________________

Blast from the Past.  When Iran was still our “friend” and nuclear power was the “in”-thing …  So much for American foreign interests in the world and its being able to judge who’s “good” and who’s “bad.”  Iran was our “friend” then, through our “ally” the Shah, much as were our “friends” Bin Laden and the Afghani Mujahideen.  Too bad they were all, back then, the same sort of miscreants they were shown to be thence, and as we rightly understand them to be today in present society. “American” “interest” is no good basis for judging the moral character of the world or in fact who our true “enemies” are.  As the POGO saying goes, “We have met the enemy and he is us” or as Andre Gunder Frank used to put it “My professional/personal conclusion is the same as Pogo’s – We have met the enemy, and it is US.”
