Iran Debates Whether to Sue US for ’53 Coup
This month’s belated official acknowledgement by the CIA through declassified documents of what everyone already knew – that the U.S. deliberately fomented a coup in Iran in 1953 to overthrow a democratically elected government and install an obedient dictatorship – seems to have led the Iranian government to consider suing America.
Iran’s parliament has approved fast tracking debate on a bill that seeks to sue the U.S. for its involvement in the 1953 coup that overthrew the country’s democratically elected prime minister.
Lawmakers will begin deliberations Wednesday over how to launch a formal complaint accusing the U.S. government of intervening in Iran’s internal affairs and inflicting damages on the Persian state. The 290-seat house approved the urgent debate of the bill Tuesday in a session broadcast on state radio.
Think of the effrontery of the Iranians to sue America for secretly employing espionage, bribery, propaganda, proxy war, and outright murder in order to oust a democratic government in Iran and impose a brutal autocrat in its place. How dare they resort to peaceful legal means to rectify an historic injustice! Terrorists!
