This site isn't about terrorism - it's about Iran in the 1970s. Very interesting pics.

Neat. The founding members of The Guess Who got their start there.

That is so depressing to look at when you see what Iran has become. I mean, it looks just like my mom's old pictures of London.

The Shah was a reformer. He emancipated Iranian women, liberalized the economy and maintained good relations with the US and Israel, which enraged the mullahs. The Khomeini Revolution started out in a frenzy of popular outrage at the excesses of the Shah, but eventually descended into the kind of madness that characterized the French and Russian Revolutions. Thirty years later, the Iranians have a serious case of buyer's remorse.--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Back about '77 my home town hosted an Iranian Mini Wrestling team(not midget pro wrestlers but a little league type wrestling program). My neighbors put up a couple of the wrestlers. They hung out with us and when they were taken to the mall, they bought up a crap load of jeans. One of them gave a girl on the street his warm up jacket with IRAN across the front. They were just regular kids like us. I often wondered what happened to them after the revolution.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

The Shah was not the devil the left wants to make him out to be. His legacy has been twisted almost as much as Che's has been distorted by the American left.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
