BOTH those explanations below nailed it. Completely correct.

BP Oil at the time was called something else like Anglo Oil (not sure exactly).

They were taking 7/8 of the oil profits.

Iran was asking for just 50% of their own oil profits.

But the greedy BP wouldn't budge. And they got the CIA and the British intelligence agency to overthrow the ELECTED Iranian leader Muhammad Mossedech and installed the hated Shah of Iran.

We all know how the Shah treated his people which caused the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979 and further hatred and terrorism toward us.

So when dumbass Rick Santorum tries to call Ron Paul a nut for claiming they don't attack us for our foreign policies it shows his total ignorance.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
