As soon as I heard the words, “overthrow Iran's democracy” and “1953,” I stopped listening instantly because I knew this was going to be another blame America first propaganda hit peace. Indeed,democracy in the Islamic world is absolutely impossible. As a matter of fact, out of the 57 Islamic states that altogether comprise the OIC, how many of them are true legit Westernized liberal democracies where freedom and liberty are intrinsic? The answer is zero. Why? Because freedom, liberty, and democracy, along with the rule of man as opposed to the rule of Allah, are all abominations and antithetical to everything that Islam is, which is a supremacist theo-political totalitarian ideology.
Furthermore, the notion that the Islamic revolution was spawned by the ouster of Mossadegh, who was a secular and blasphemous Muslim apostate, as opposed to a Muslim and loyal slave of Allah, is utterly absurd and laughable to the extreme. Indeed, if Mossadegh had still been alive back in 1979 when the ruling Mullah regime ruthlessly seized power, he would have been among the first apostates put to death, just like that Pastor in Iran today that is about to be executed for apostasy. Indeed, the new Mullah regime ruthlessly put to death any and all perceived threats whether or not they were actual threats soon after seizing power, and that included thousands of delusional leftist useful idiots that had been invaluable in helping to bring about the Islamic revolution in Iran.
Thus, the only people that can be dumb enough to believe that absurd propaganda are people who are extremely gullible and that are completely oblivious of Islam and mentally incompetent at the same time when it comes to history. In other words, people that are dumb enough to have their ignorance's exploited to the hilt, like Ron Paul anarcho-kooks and moronic delusional leftists addicted to group think who blindly always follow their political elites religiously no matter what or else.
Political correctness demands that Islam be thought of as inherently peaceful and tolerant, and no explorations of its history and doctrines that would lead to a contrary view may be presented.
Do heavy-handed tyrants—Saddam, Mubarak, Qaddafi, et al—create brutal societies, or do naturally brutal societies create the need for heavy-handed tyrants to keep order?
