562 Iran suffered 6 times regime change by the West.

Here is an old document that I discovered on my computer. I sent it to dutch journalist Dirk Jan van Baar in 2009.
I find it very detailed and think it has better information than my 2010 blog on the same subject.

De Amerikaanse invloed in Iran: Volgens Wikipedia en W. Engdahl en diverse internet  sites en videos.

In 1909, during the Persian Constitutional Revolution, Howard Baskerville ( Amerikaan)  died in Tabriz while trying to help the constitutionalists in a battle against royalist forces. After the American financial consultant Morgan Shuster was appointed Treasurer General of Persia by the Iranian parliament in 1911, an American was killed in Tehran by henchmen thought to be affiliated with Russian or British interests.
It was the American embassy that first relayed to the Iran desk at the Foreign Office in London confirmation of the popular view that the British were involved in the 1921 coup that broughtMohammad Reza Pahlavi to power.[6][7] A British Embassy report from 1932 admits that the British put Reza Shah "on the throne".

In 1941, Britain and the USSR invaded Iran to use Iranian railroad capacity during World War II. The Shah was forced to abdicate in favour of his son, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

1947- 1953: Mossadegh afgezet. De Shah op de troon gezet door Amerika.
Mossadegh verzoekt om een groter deel van de winst.
Het wordt zelfs door een internationaal grechtshof goedgekeurd, maar hij krijgt het niet.
 During the Cold War following World War II, America became deeply involved in Iranian affairs.
From 1952-53, Mohammed Mossadeq, the democratically-elected Prime Minister, begannationalization of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (now known as British Petroleum). Established by the British in the early 20th century, Anglo-Iranian Oil Company shared profits (85% British-15% Iran),
The United States and Britain, through a now-admitted covert operation of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) called Operation Ajax, conducted from the US Embassy in Tehran, helped organize a coup to overthrow Moussadeq. The operation failed and the Shah fled to Italy. After organizing protests against Mosaddeq, a second operation was successful and the Shah returned from his brief exile.
During his reign, the Shah received significant American support, frequently making state visits to the White House and earning praise from numerous American Presidents. The Shah's close ties to Washington and his bold agenda of rapidly Westernizing Iran soon began to infuriate certain segments of the Iranian population, especially the hardline Islamic conservatives.

1978: Ook in 1978 was het door Amerikaans ingrijpen dat de Shah werd afgezet en de Ayatollahs aan de macht kwamen.
Dat blijkt uit W Engdahls boek  A Century of war.
En het blijkt uit info op het internet ( zie onder).

In short: The Shah was getting a little too self-conscious or 'independent'. 
A synopsis of Engdahl:
After the oil-price rise the Shah had made contracts with France and Germany to build 4 nuclear plants in Iran. (Engdahl page 142)
By 1978 Iran had the fourth largest nuclear power program in the world. He had planned to have 25 reactors by 1995, and was going to export electricity all over the Middle East.
The Shah was pressed enormously to put his petrodollars on USA banks, but he thought that producing nuclear electricity was a much better use. (Engdahl pag 164)
The US government (Carter) tried to block the relations between Iran and Germany and France.
This oil-bussiness threatening development ( nuclear plants everywhere) was fought by Big Oil in al kinds of ways ( a.o. they initiated anti-nuclear movements).

Engdahl Page 171- 172:
In novermber 1978 Carter ( or was it the Power Elite) named George Ball ( Bilderberg, Trilateral commission.) as head of the Iran Task Force under Brzezinsky.  George Ball recommended that Washington drop the Shah and support the fundamentalist  Islamic opposition of Khomeini. The CIA did lead the coup against the Shah.
A famous Islam expert, dr. Bernard Lewis had explained that when the radical Islamic Brotherhood would get to power, the entire Middle East would disintegrate along tribal and religious lines. It would go on and on , even into the Russian islamic areas. He wanted The West to encourage minorities ( Kurd, Armenians, maronites, Ethiopian Copts, azeri Turks etc. to revolt. An "Arc of Crisis"was his goal.
Also in 1978 the oil contract between Iran and the Brittish had to be renewed. The Brits asked for exclusive rights. The Shah wanted to sell to other countries too ( Germany , France, Japan etc.)  The English reduced oil-buying in Iran to bring the Shah in financial problems. It worked.  People became frustrated, agitators ( English) fanned the unrest. Oil workers went on strike.
American Savak-advisors stimulated the Savak to be more brutal, in order to create more public anger towards the Shah. Carter started to speak about Human Rights. The BBC persian-language radio 'drummed up hysteria against the Shah'. In the same time the BBC gave Khomeini a full propaganda platform inside Iran.
Tot zover Engdahl.

Houchang Nahavandi, one of the Shah’s ministers and closest advisers, reveals in his book The Last Shah of Iran: “We now know that the idea of deposing the Shah was broached continually, from the mid-seventies on, in the National Security Council in Washington, by Henry Kissinger, whom the Shah thought of as a firm friend.”     

Uit de tekst:
The BBC and other agencies broadcast nightly interviews with Khomeini beamed into Iran, which incited the people against the Shah.

Slater Bakhtavar:
“I did not know it then – perhaps I did not want to know – but it is clear to me now that the Americans wanted me out. Clearly this is what the human rights advocates in the State Department wanted … What was I to make of the Administration’s sudden decision to call former Under Secretary of State George Ball to the White House as an adviser on Iran? Ball was among those Americans who wanted to abandon me and ultimately my country.” – Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran                                                                     
These were the words uttered by the distraught Shah of Iran when, grieving, he reflected on his downfall just before his demise in exile. The tormented former “King of Kings” ardently nurtured a deep-rooted conviction that the Carter Administration, in cooperation with the British Secret Intelligence, ordered and ensured his fall.

According to Prime Minister Hoveyda, Jimmy Carters next attack on the Shah was a formal country to country demand that the Shah sign a 50-year oil agreement with the US to supply oil at a fixed price of $8 a barrel. No longer couched as a personal request, the Shah was told he should heed the contract proposal if he wished to enjoy continued support from the US. In these perilous, political times which, could become much worse.

In 1978 while the West was deciding to remove His Majesty Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi from the throne,Shariatmadari was telling anyone who would listen not to allow Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and his velayat faghih(Islamic jurist) version of Islam to be allowed to govern Iran. Ayatollah Shariatmadari noted: We mullahs will behave like bickering whores in a brothel if we come to power ... and we have no experience on how to run a modern nation so we will destroy Iran and lose all that has been achieved at such great cost and effort.2
Pres. Carter reportedly responded that Khomeini was a religious man as he was and that he knew how to talk to a man of God, who would live in the holy city of Qom like an Iranian pope and act only as an advisor to the secular, popular revolutionary Government of Mehdi Bazargan and his group of anti-Shah executives, some of whom were US-educated and expected to show preferences for US interests.
Carters mistaken assessment of Khomeini was encouraged by advisors with a desire to form an Islamic green belt to contain atheist Soviet expansion with the religious fervor of Islam. Eventually all 30 of the scenarios on Iran presented to Carter by his intelligence agencies proved wrong, and totally misjudged Khomeini as a person and as a political entity.

The Shah’s destruction required assembling a team of diplomatic “hit men.” Du Berrier commented:

When the situation was deemed ripe, U.S. Ambassador William Sullivan — the man reputed to have toppled the pro-American government of General Phoumi Nosavan in Laos — was sent to urge the Shah to get out. In December Mr. George Ball, an instant “authority on Iran,” was sent as a follow-up with the same message.

Sullivan (CFR), a career diplomat with no Middle East experience, became our ambassador to Iran in 1977. The Shah recalled:

Whenever I met Sullivan and asked him to confirm these official statements [of American support], he promised he would. But a day or two later he would return, gravely shake his head, and say that he had received “no instructions” and therefore could not comment.... His answer was always the same: I have received no instructions.... This rote answer had been given me since early September [1978] and I would continue to hear it until the day I left the country.

The other key player du Berrier named, George Ball, was a quintessential establishment man: CFR member, Bilderberger, and banker with Lehman Brothers Kuhn Loeb. The Shah commented: “What was I to make, for example, of the Administration’s sudden decision to call former Under Secretary of State George Ball to the White House as an advisor on Iran? I knew that Ball was no friend.”

Writes Nahavandi:

George Ball — that guru of American diplomacy and prominento of certain think-tanks and pressure groups — once paid a long visit to Teheran, where, interestingly, the National Broadcasting Authority placed an office at his disposal. Once installed there, he played host to all the best-known dissidents and gave them encouragement. After he returned to Washington, he made public statements, hostile and insulting to the Sovereign.

Joining the smear was U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy, whose role Nahavandi recalled in a 1981 interview:

But we must not forget the venom with which Teddy Kennedy ranted against the Shah, nor that on December 7, 1977, the Kennedy family financed a so-called committee for the defense of liberties and rights of man in Teheran, which was nothing but a headquarters for revolution.

Suddenly, the Shah noted, the U.S. media found him “a despot, an oppressor, a tyrant.” Kennedy denounced him for running “one of the most violent regimes in the history of mankind.”

Verkiezingen juni 2009:  Bewijzen dat ook nu Amerika de verkiezingen beinvloed.

Paul Craig Roberts : Bush gaf 400 miljoen $ om Iran te destabiliseren.

Jon Stewart ( Daily Show) interviewt Reza Aslan over Iran, in een sfeer van 'ouwe jongens krentebrood'. Vlotte kerel die Iranier. Maar als hij zegt; "The US has a long history of meddling in Iranian affairs, you know" dan begint Stewart heel vrolijk 'no no no no' te kreunen en hij bedekt zijn oren met zijn handen: CENSUUR ! 
Dit nieuws behoort duidelijk niet tot de categrorie: "Wat het volk weten mag."

Gisteren zei Brzezinsky het heel duidelijk: "We moeten slim manipuleren in Iran, zoals we dat bij de val van de Muur deden".
