The Tragedy of US-Iranian Relations: A Beginner's Guide

Thursday, May 11 at 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM PDT

The Public School Los Angeles
951 Chung King Rd, Los Angeles, California 90012

This lecture will provide a birds-eye-view of the history, culture, and politics of Iran, including a discussion of the current state of affairs in Iran and the threats posed to its people by the Trump regime.

We will begin by looking at Iran’s role in the “Great Game” of American imperial hegemony during the Cold War, focusing on the impact of the Anglo-American coup that brought down the Soviet-leaning, nationalist, and, most importantly, democratically-elected government of Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953. Next we look at how in 1979 Iranians rose up and successfully executed an anti-imperialist revolution against the pliant Pahlavi monarchy, eventually bringing hardline regime of Ayatollah Khomeini to power, and the humiliation this caused for “the Great Satan." We will explore the variety of ways that US imperial planners have attempted to regain geopolitical control over the region since the early 1980s. Finally, we will discuss how the cataclysmic conflict in Syria is yet another front in the long-simmering war between Iran and the world’s largest military and economic superpower.
