I had never questioned the idea that the islamic revolution in Iran was against american interests and, consequently, had by opposed by the american government. However, the reading of Imperial playground and an excerpt of The last Shah of Iran reminded me of the first condition for the control of middle east, or any another region: make sure that regional powers do not emerge, or become subservient, or are destroyed (preferably by a proxy). In the middle east, the most powerful nation is Iran.
