Unmasking AIPAC: Who's Afraid Of The Lobby?

07-10-2007 04:49

Part of the rush to further disastrous war seems to be motivated by a distinct desire for the Zionist portion of the New Neo-Fascism to get the spotlight turned off.

However, as important as this event was between Iranian and American relations, it is important to go further back to truly understand the dynamic relations that the United Kingdom, and later, the United States (the Anglo-American alliance) have had with Iran.
