    notta again. Lohand Lindsay addiction story is like the cow's cud. How many times must this tired saga assault our senses? It was never important. Worst than Miley Cyrus' tired tubes outings! Come on you publicist and managers find something productive for your clients to do!

    Read Ghost Wars for a fascinating history of events leading up to 911 including the US imposed shah following the british petro overthrow of Iran in1953 due to the 30-50 trillion dollars of oil in the Caspian Sea basin. That oil made the Jewish family Rothchild wealthy. They paid for Israel to illegally go nuclear, see The Bomb in the Basement: How Israel Went Nuclear.

    @sarah...well said and accurate. Back in the early 50s the Iranian government decided to nationalize their oilfields. This did not sit well with the US and UK governments, and so the CIA and Brit SIS were tasked with subterfuge operations in Iran, resulting in the Shah becoming King and maintaining a close alliance with UK and US oil giants, and making the Shah an enemy of his own people. Accounts of this are available, the New York times reported this, and their archives can still be found online.
