Anyone see the movie ARGO?Submitted by pawnstorm12 on Wed, 11/14/2012 - 02:49
I saw it this weekend.
Definitely worth watching - especially the opening where they explain the CIA misdeeds against Iran in the 1950's.
I knew about Mohammad Mosaddegh, the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran from 1951 to 1953 when his government was overthrown in a coup d'état orchestrated by the British MI5 and the CIA.
We installed the Shah of Iran - a hated leader who tortured and killed his own people for 25 years.
But most Americans do NOT know about this.
They just think Iran hates us because we're a free country.
They hate Iranians because our government TELLS them to.
So that movie at least may have taught some people a few things.
KUDOS to the producers of ARGO
