I heard that Amerika finally wanted to get rid of the Shah, so it allowed khomeini to do his revolution without interference to help him or to defend the Shah. Any info about that? any sites you know?

The war on terror which we are fighting today is what was wanted.

Sacrificing the Shah and letting Khomeini take over was just one of many steps that were taken over decades to ensure this eventual outcome. The war on terror has been a long time in the making.

Peace

In 1953 Iran's prime minister Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh, was removed from power in a plot orchestrated by British and US intelligence agencies to protect their oil interests (dubbed "Operation Ajax"). The operation was conducted following the Prime-Minister's nationalization of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. It reinstated the Iranian monarchy, handing power back to former Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

Following Dr. Mosaddegh's fall, the Shah's rule became increasingly dictatorial, particularly in the late 1970s. With strong support from the USA and the UK, the Shah further modernized Iranian industry but crushed civil liberties. His autocratic rule led to the Iranian revolution in 1979. An Islamic republic was soon established under the Ayatollah Khomeini.
