Currently ruled by a puppet regime and a scapegoat for America's huge deficit and loses on the oil market due to the sorry state of the U.S. dollar.

Yes, Iran has had a rich past, but the lives of Iranians were not any better before the Islamic Revolution than they are now. They DID have more freedom, but there was still a great amount of dissatisfaction.
A country of southwest Asia. Inhabited since c. 2000 B.C. by Iranian peoples, the region later became the core of the Persian Empire. After being conquered by Alexander the Great and ruled by the Parthian Arsacid dynasty, Persia was reestablished under the Sassanian dynasty (A.D. 224-651) and, after invasions by Arabs (7th century), Turks (10th century), and Mongols (13th-14th centuries), was reestablished again under the Safavid dynasty (1502-1736). The country, officially renamed Iran in 1935, was ruled by the Pahlavi dynasty from 1925 until the ouster of Muhammad Reza Pahlavi (1979) in a revolution led by the most evil man in the world, AKA Ayatollah Khomeini, who established an Islamic republic. Tehran is the capital and the largest city.
