The U.S. Mission Towards Restriction of Terror Regimes:
In the words of Michael Ledeen contributing editor of National Review and of whose views on history and philosophy, have influenced or inspired the Bush administration's war on Iraq)... "If we wage the war effectively, we will bring down the terror regimes in Iraq, Iran, and Syria, and either bring down the Saudi monarchy or force it to abandon its global assembly line to indoctrinate young terrorists. That's our mission in the war against terror." -2002
~Read Leeden's latest 'National Review' article: "Do the right thing"...
In Crane Brinton's book, "An Anatomy of a Revolution"...
...he explains the set of four steps, as are outlined to be exactly the symptoms that the Iranian Revolution followed...
1. Symptoms 2. Rising fever 3. Crisis and 4. Convalescence.
"The Mission is a tall order, with many parallels of the past, along the way."[The Father of today's radical Islamofascism]
A Seductive Leader to a lost, mass of revolutionaries & militants who recognized Khomeini's large and potentially enormous following, and associated themselves with him.. These militant groups learned the benefit of exerting their force through the principals of a new found Radical Islam, in order to overthrow a government.
From a Shah takeover to a national referendum, Khomeini declared an Islamic republic. This republic consisted of a new constitution reflecting Khomeini's ideals of Islamic government.
Punishments described by Islamic law were reinstated. Political vengeance was taken, executing hundreds of people who had worked with the Shah's regime.
With this denouncification of materialism (as to create the climate in which social justice would prevail) Khomeini set up a system of revolutionary committees presided over by a revolutionary council. Religious leaders clearly predominated in the revolutionary council- committee-courts system, which came to be almost a parallel government.
We did not have a 9-11 then, but what was building was a precursor to the third step of a Revolution... Crisis...
As the world watched, and under the encouragement of the Khomeni, November 4, 1979, 500 extremist students seized the US embassy in Tehran, and took hostage 66 citizens at the embassy and the foreign ministry.
It has been received during this time of uncertainty that Iran, again, strengthens and forms alliance with militant groups for assurance.
[militant: Iraqi Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr]
~Then: The formation of hostage releases...
Today: Under transitional phase with Nuclear conflict...
Al-Sadr has a large following among Iraq's young and impoverished Shiites. His militia launched two uprisings against U.S. troops in Iraq in 2004, but since the fighting ended he has transformed himself into a respected political figure. Al-Sadr's followers now hold 21 seats in the outgoing parliament as well as three Cabinet posts.
"What is in front of this crisis?"...
Outside of its ideological support for radical movement, another area of Iran's military focus has been the Strait of Hormuz. At the present time. About 25% of the world's supply of crude oil transit through the Strait. The volume includes oil exports from Iran, UAE, Saudi Aravbia, Kuwait, and Qatar.
Arsenal of defensive weapons has been placed on the islands of Abu Musa, Greater Tumb, Lesser Tumb (all 3 islands belong to Iran and not the UAE). The real future aggressor and danger in this region seems to be the UAE for its claim over the Iranian islands.
