پاسخ به تاریخ

The final draft of Answer to History was completed by the Shah just days before he died on July 27 1980 Completing it was in the Shah's words a race against time In it he shows how the United States once the most powerful country on earth found itself hostage to the whims of Iran a land few Americans knew much about In telling his own story the Shah shows clearly that Iran has become a battleground between the US and the Soviet Union which for over half a century has pursued goals with increasing success In the slide into chaos precipitated by the Khomeini regime the Shah saw the ultimate beneficiary being the USS R Some years ago during a transitional time in my life I worked in a book store This was a bit like living in Disney Land It was in the days before Internet book searches and online bookstores so finding treasurers was not so easy The store owners I worked for would often acuire book collections from desert inhabitants who had moved on passed on or changed interests I would often stalk these titles looking for the unusual the different opinion or the story as told by an observer rather than an interpreter This book was one such bookI have a uirky view of current events I tend not to think too deeply about what I find in common media When I was fairly young I was involved in a fatal accident The one newspaper article I was able to convince myself to read had so many errors it appeared as though it was a report on a different accident That instance only strengthened my belief that it is nearly impossible for someone to write a truly objective and accurate account of any event even if the writer is not emotionally involved in some way Thus I seek out different perspectives on ideas and events Answer to History brought me an amazing perspective on the modernization of the Persian peoples Most of what we hear of the Shah s regime has to with secret service goons torture and a host of unsavory things supposedly and perhaps probably propped up by the western governments The point of view from inside the mind of this leader is uite different Few know of the balancing act he tried to master between the demands of the western world and the pressures of his northern neighbor He knew the geopolitical dynamics of his region of the world as few others did Even fewer know of the huge sums of money spent from his family s trust to create housing provide education and medical care and to give the people in the street a chance at learning what they needed to know to self govern As much as he truly loved his country and for all he tried to accomplish for it the man just flat ran out of timeThis book is written in the last days of his life while he was in Exile in Egypt dying of cancer It is provocative and soul searching It also should give policy makers pause when they are thinking about involving themselves in another country s affairs or suddenly lose the political will to finish what they started

Which will reach the apogee of its strength no later than 1983 with the West facing a decade of harrowing danger Answer to History begins with what really happened during the Shah's period of exile in the Bahamas Mexico the US Panama and finally Egypt It goes on to cover all of the momentous experiences of the Shah's reign a book full of heroes and villains with many surprises for the American reader as to who the villains really were and are The Shah discloses backstage developments in today's politics of oil The Shah show how the interplay between the Black and the Red the 14th century clergy and the Tudeh Party Iran What a tragic storyIt is very likely that Pahlavi is largely under representing or if we are charitable under estimating the amount of oppression police brutality political persecution and corruption that occurred under his reign If you are reading a book written by a ruler like he used to be you take all the facts with a sizable grain of saltHowever the facts and figures of Iran s government pre Islamic Revolution are not the main reason why you should read this book You should read this book for a vision of a leader who as far as I can tell genuinely loved his country and wanted to propel Iran into industrialization and progress and had made great strides towards that goal Pahlavi had a good vision for Iran and I think he demonstrates enough evidence that he worked towards this vision from the very beginning whether or not you agree with all his methodsSecondly you should read this book for a demonstration albeit not an in depth one of how the West continues to misunderstand the Middle East How the US and other Western nations continue to think that one can adopt full democracy in countries that do not have the bedrock of individual freedom and rights to support that democracy The people media and likely governments of the West wanted Pahlavi out because they thought that his monarchic rule hindered Iran He was a despot Tyrant They thought Khomeini and his ilk had every right to do as they please in Iran after all we provide freedom of speech assembly and political organization to everyone in our countries Do what the masses want They forgot that a culture that values freedom individual rights and protection against the tyranny of the majority is a necessary foundation for democracy to succeed There was no constitution of inalienable rights in Iran What followed was what the mobs wanted terror and terrorism bloodshed haphazard executions and the loss of decades of culture and progress in IranYou should also read this book to learn of the shameful appeasement that the Western governments Carter et al engaged in right after Pahlavi was exiled They turned their backs on an ally and groveled and suirmed to get some friendship and sympathy from Khomeini Please like us Don t hate us Whatever you didn t like we won t do Look how nicely that has all worked outThe same is being repeated in Egypt Libya and all other Middle Eastern countries that are undergoing what the Western media ignorantly calls Arab Spring right now Those nations are lost for a very long time to come
