    Iran has a rich history of civilization and in fact had a democratic government in the early 1950's which was considered a threat to US interests because they were a little too "socialist" for our tastes....being the great defenders of democracy we are (snark) our country installed a king (Shah) to rule Iran as a proper capitalist country. The reason Iranians ended up being ruled by religious extremists has everything to do with fact that they associated the US and the west with the hated Shah.
