When Iranian students rioted under the Shah's regime, the police did not use plexiglass shields, batons, barricades and water cannons.
They used live ammunition.
Thousands were killed in the protests that lead up to the revolution. Thousands of idealistic young people, not very far removed from the current
group, were mowed down on orders from the palace. They didn't appeal for calm or attempt to negotiate or anything like that. They just opened fire.
On the Shah's orders.
If they were the only ones that the Shah's regime regularly treated like human garbage, it MIGHT - just possibly, maybe, excuse Reza Pahlavi's
behaviour. If it was a one off thing, an accident in the heat of the moment. That kind of thing.
But it wasn't. The Revolutionary Guards and the Basij have absolutely nothing on SAVAK.
Reza Pahlavi's father was installed to the monarchy in 1953. Everyone knows that story. If you don't, you should. These are the real conspiracy
theories: the ones that turned out to be true all along.
Reza Pahlavi's father was the USA's man. He was England's man. He was Israel's man. Give him enough shiny objects to play with and he'd play ball
with anyone. It's the stuff of legend, frankly.
Reza Pahlavi. Remember the name. He will almost certainly be sitting at the helm of Iran in the next year. He's the new boy, and he's being groomed
for it before your eyes, just as you're being groomed to accept him as a kind hearted man with the best interests of Iran at heart.
Never mind that his re-emergence into the public view starts in 2005, right around the time that the USA was talking about backing a revolution in
Iran to depose the theocracy. That's just a conspiracy theory.
Just like in 1953.
