The Shah of Iran was a major reason for why the 1979 Iranian Hostage Crisis came about in the first place. Because the Shah was a dictator and at times a brutal dictator even though he was moderate in other areas like in economic and foreign policy. But he used his vast powers to keep the opposition that was democratic and theocratic down with his Secret Police and arresting people without charges. And holding them indefinitely without trial. And as a result the Islamists in Iran woke up and fought back and took over the country.

- This is definitely one of John F. Kennedy's top 3 quotes. You can't have a free society, unless you have an educated society. Americans should free to live their own lives and make their own decisions, short of hurting any innocent person with what they're doing. But they first need the knowledge to make their own decisions, to be truly free.@inessainz01: Así las cosas por aquí!! Cine particular con @carlsjrmex para disfrutar de la @nfl mejor plan imposible!!Great Diana Dors movie. I just wish the full version was available in America.Damn! I was hoping to get through all of 2023 without agreeing with Representative Mike Turner on anything. But he's damn right here.I just think when it comes to Larry Bird and a lot of players from his generation, it's cultural and generational. Young fans are interested in stats. The guy with the most individual stats, will automatically be better than someone who doesn't average as many assists, rebounds, point, etc. Larry Bird is still the best passing and shooting forward ever. Only Magic Johnson was as good a passer then Legend Bird.Jack Sikma is certainly one of the best two-way centers in the NBA in the 1980s. Should've been in the HOF 20 years ago. He was like Bill Laimbeer with a post game. Good outside shooter, good rebounder, good defender, good passer, NBA champion and all star.
