“…Westerners made Shah Reza Pahlevi the “gendarme of the Middle East”. He saw to it that nationalist movements were crushed….During the oil crisis of 1973, he realized the power he had at his disposal. He then considered restoring a real empire and sought the help of the Saudis. The latter immediately informed the United States who decided to eliminate their ally Pahlevi who had become too greedy and to replace him by the old ayatollah Khomeiny (77 years old at the time) whom they surrounded with their agents. But first of all, MI6 made it clear: the communists were put in prison, while the imam of the poor, the Lebanese Moussa Sadr, disappeared during a visit to Libya and Ali Shariati was assassinated in London”

  1. ROUGH ON THE LIVING
    Shel Silverstein
    His picture was in all the papers.
    They said that a legend had passed.
    The late evenin’ news did a special report
    And swore that hem’ry would last.
    They’re playin’ his records all weekend,
    Praisin’ the life that he led.
    Nashville is rough on the livin’,
    But she really speaks well of the dead.
    The wife that they interviewed cryin’
    Is the same one who left him last fall,
    And the record producer who called him a hero
    Is the one who wouldn’t answer his calls.
    And the ladies they sit over coffee
    Braggin’ ’bout sharin’ his bed.
    They didn’t want him around when he’s livin’,
    But he’s sure a good friend when he’s dead.
    They observed twenty seconds of silence
    At the opry on Saturday night,
    And they’re searchin’ the bars and the basements
    For some souvenir of his life.
    They’re plannin’ the book for September,
    Showin’ his plain country roots,
    And they’re sellin’ the rights to the movie,
    And the Hall of Fame’s gettin’ his boots.
    At the funeral somebody recited a poem
    That told how he suffered and bled.
    Nashville is rough on the livin’,
    But she really speaks well of the dead.
