1953 : Coup in Iran with the assistance of the United States


On August 19, 1953, the United States participated in a military coup to regain power from the Prime Minister Mossadeq and reinstall the Shah.
Mossadeq, Prime Minister since 1951, had enjoyed strong popular support and had decided to nationalize the Iranian oil to the chagrin of the British and Americans. When he saw that the Shah and the British and American intelligence wanted to overtrow him, Mossadeq called his supporters to demonstrate in the streets. The Shah fled the country and the British withdrew but the Americans who feared that Mossadeq was led by Moscow, staged a coup with the military loyal to the Shah. Mossadeq was arrested and the Shah returned to power until 1979. The Americans paid their misjudgment after the Revolution of 1979.
