If the United States is to learn anything about Iran it is that American foreign policy is substantially flawed and reckless. The US has a long history of a hundred years of brutal occupation, masked liberation, interventionist ideals, and proxy warring ambitions.
The fundamental question is whether United States foreign policy has truly served the national interest. Although sometimes it has, overtly interventionist policies and the meddling in intrastate affairs has often led to more enemies abroad, whether state or organization.
In regards to Iran, American foreign policy is shifting toward interventionism once again. On Wednesday, February 3rd, the House Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia held a hearing to discuss the United States’ prospected approach on handling the revolution in Iran. I need not mention the disasters of previous attempts to change governments in Iran on behalf of the US; however, the Subcommittee came to the same conclusion. The United States, in its ‘best interest’, would somehow support the Green Revolution in Iran.
