Jim Geraghty: For 40 Years, Iran's Philosophy Has Been Simple And Direct: "Death To America"

(Some wags on the right like to suggest that that's also the new slogan of the Democratic party...)
The Iranian regime is despicable. No doubt about that.
(Incidentally, an Iranian student of mine was recently telling me about his who, in a lecture, made a rather off-handed comment moderately critical of the regime. He's now serving a 10-year prison sentence for it...)
I know I say this all the time, but: I think it does matter that we've screwed Iran over horribly. They might not be in the predicament they're in if we hadn't helped kill Mossaddegh and then backed the Shah and allowed him free reign to be a murderous autocrat.
