Yep. Please read All the Shaw's Men. Did you know that the Iranian ruling class considered themselves the Southern Cossacks?

If you know the history of the CIA in the Middle East (and Iran specifically), you will infer that this is likely true. (I have Mohamed Mossadegh in mind.)

The one book that really stuck out in my History of the Middle East class is "All the Shah's Men" by Stephen Kinzer. It's a really well written true story about American involvement in overthrowing Mohammed Mossadegh in Iran.

Recommended reading: All the Shah's men.

There's a great book on this subject called All the Shah's Men.

Get's into how it wasn't necessarily a popular move here, but politicians were motivated by the fear that Mosaddegh was leaning towards communism (really he just wouldn't give away Iran's oil).

EDIT: Just realized this book was listed in the Wikipedia references, sorry.

I would recommend that anyone interested in this should read All the Shah's Men by Stephen Kinzer.

Well, you could go back even farther to the Anglo-Soviet invasion during WWII. After that, there was the British oil interests and a daring Kermit Roosevelt who displaced Mossadeq. Check out "All the Shah's men," if really interested in the background to the current US-Iranian relations.

Old news. We really shit the bed on that one. Here's a good read that outlines the whole thing very well: http://www.amazon.com/All-Shahs-Men-American-Middle/dp/0471265179
