Iran and Imperialism
The penetration of the imperialist power in this period also produced a network of connections and relationships between certain influential socio-economic forces and foreign powers. While the Soviets appealed to the emerging forces of industrial workers and Iranian intelligentsia, the British perpetuated their control and connections with their traditional allies: large landowners, high-ranking civilian bureaucrats, big merchants, and tribal chiefs. Finally Nazi Germany, taking full advantage of Reza Shah's anti-communism, appealed to the ruler (the Shah), high-ranking military bureaucrats, and a minority of the German educated elite.
In fact, Nazi Germany provided Reza Shah's military regime with a general model for establishing a full authoritarian monarchy and for launching Iran's “modernisation” program. Although the tradition of autocracy had a historical foundation in Iran, the examples of the rising bureaucratic regimes in Italy and Germany further strengthened and justified the interventionist policies of the Iranian regime in the everyday life of the Iranian people.
To be sure, due to its anti-democratic system and its ideology of racist “Aryanism”, Nazi Germany was taken more seriously by the Shah and his high-ranking military personnel in Iran. The Nazi philosophy of “Aryanism” and “pure racism” provided a guideline for the rewriting of Iranian history and for justifying the existence of Reza Shah's autocratic monarchy-fascism. The concept of “Iranian superiority”, based on this ideology, assisted Reza Shah in glorifying the legitimacy of the absolute monarchy and in fostering an ideological drive for the modernisation of the army, implementation of “edifice” projects, and intervention in the cultural and traditional ethos of the Iranian people.
Forget Syria! The world should unite around Fukushima and spend the billions to clean that up NOW while avoiding critical mass.

Strongly feel that what's unfolding. America being officially replaced for the world to see, as the leader of the "free" world to the villian of the 'free' world. Everyone kind of distancing themselves from the sick nation. More scandals, more corruption, more, more, more! Our economy is going to break and it seems that while the US is left to pick itself up again (and get some ice for our ego), the force that moves the peices will have found a new host country to continue whatever endgame.

when the 'rebels' will strike - they won't strike in Syria. it'll be a false flag on US soil, to gather domestic support for the attack. and they WILL need it.
you may think they don't give a damn right now, but they know very well what the consequences will be. they know what the involvement of Iran, Israel, Russia and China means. world war. what do you think would happen in DC when they would start that against the will of US citizens? they would be kicked out from their offices overnight.
of course, Americans won't be aware of the consequences this attack will bring, but despite the fact i'm not one of them and that i've never been in USA, i believe there is a borderline that, when crossed by the government, will end up in a revolution. it doesn't really matter though, the government will rather declare martial law than loose control.
Right now Kerry is on TV.
