Worth watching

For anyone who doesn't know why the turmoil exists between our countries, I suggest u watch this. It will make you think twice about what goes on in the world not just Iran. History it full of the same story. Explorers come to some poor indigent country. Find a valued resource and take it over. It's a shame that people here have no idea of how things have developed in the Middle East, American coup does a very good job of explaining of how Iran was taken over.
