Iran Cuts Ties With UK

By: Mir M.Hosseini

A couple of hours after Prime Minister Dr. Mosaddegh made an announcement on the public radio; explaining the reasons behind the government's decision to cut diplomatic ties with the United Kingdom, a draft in this regards which was earlier approved by the parliament was given to the UK embassy in Tehran.
Iranians then filled the streets and started celebrations. A group of people took down the embassy sign which was a symbol of imperialism for two centuries. Dr. Mosaddegh believed that most of Iran's misery could be attributed to U.K.'s imperialist policies towards Iran for two centuries. It was only after Nationalization of Oil industry, that Iranians enjoyed merits of free press for a short time and understood what some foreign states did to Iran to keep the country backwards. The British meddling was shown as the main reason behind separation of Makran, Herat and Bahrain from Iran. They used military might to install governments of their choice in Iran. U.K. was behind cultivation and use of puppy in Iran. The old fox also armed local tribesmen to incite revolts and uprisings against central government whenever necessary.
However, the good times did not last long and a military coup backed by U.K. and U.S. toppled the first democratic regime in the Middle East and changed the destination of the world forever. U.K. and U.S. are currently sawing the seeds of hatred they once planted.
