    During the late 70's the USA Carter govt. colluded with the Soviets in toppling the moderate( and by Muslim standards, progressive) Shah of Iran. The Iranian Ayatollahs of Doom have established an Islamic/Marxist slave empire in Iran that now threatens the world with nukes. Russia is using Iran as its attack dog.The dog growls, snaps, and slobbers in order to help maintain ME instability . This helps ensure high oil prices .High oil prices are about the only thing these days that are keeping Russia from totally crumbling. Russia regresses daily. Freedom of the press is gone and the communist apparatchick oligarchy controls the wealth. In China the people can only dream about Western style freedoms. China, Iran, Russia- corrupt and evil regimes. They are all rotten eggs in the same basket.
