What do y'all think would have happened if the Shah would have had Ayatollah Khomeini assassinated sometime between 1964 and 1966? I think the Shah would have stayed on the Throne until he died in 1979 and he would have been succeeded by his son Reza Pahlavi. The Muslim Extremist movement that took hold in Iran under the Ayatollah Khomeini would never have gotten going the way it did if he would have been assassinated in the mid 1960s.

Congrats to Donald Trump on your Election as President and good luck. BUILD THAT WALL!

The Iranian Revolution began as an ideologically heterogeneous uprising. Khomeini wasn't the sole or even dominant driving force from the beginning.

Professor Nathan. A shameless agrarian collectivist with no respect for private property or individual rights. Can you really trust him?

Yeah that's right, I said Siam. Why don't you go tell Pedro Martinez
