Have you not heard about Jamal Khashoggi? It was a big story a while back.
> It's pretty natural for the US to oppose those ideologically hostile to it.
Chicken or egg? That is, if the US hadn't engaged in regime change operations in Iran and hadn't supported Saddam in attacking Iran, would Iran be hostile towards the US?
It's funny that people think that the mullahs have any grudges against the US becuase the US overthrew a 'socialist atheist'. They didn't like Mosaddegh either and in fact took part in his overthrow. Khomeini's grudge was purely ideological.
That's generally not really how embassies work, but sure.
> Khomeini's grudge was purely ideological.
As in "all islamic religious hardliners in charge of a country hate the US"? The first gulf war couldn't have anything to do with it?
Someone needs to tell Assange about this, if that isn't how embassies work.
