History repeats itself

Sixty years ago, CIA help overthrew a democratically elected government of Iran. Sixty years later, the US is still paying a price for it – a hostile Iran. Well, perhaps some interest groups, e.g., weapon companies, have been well paid because of it. But the American people are paying for it everyday.

Now it is the rising of another Iran, by this we mean Egypt. Our government and the “free press” obviously did not like the democratically elected Egyption government since its first day in office, after the ouster of our long time ally, the three-decate long dictator Mubarak. Ironically, this democratically elected Egypt government was overthrown in a coup by US backed Egypt military just two years after it’s in office. History repeats itself again in the middle east.

What price are we going to pay this time?
