    have made Iran extremely wealthy, but only assisted Britain instead. However, without the help of foreign powers, the country would have never been able to gain access to the natural resource without Britain’s technology.

    Another deciding factor in the fall of the Shah’s rule during the revolutionary period was influenced by the reliance of the Shah on American intelligence and intellectual support.

Ofira Seliktar sums up the underestimation of…
