[America's] withdrawal, repeatedly announced and postponed by the current president, could precipitate the collapse of the entire structure—and lead to even more chaos.
It’s as though Trump wants a war, too, to make his mark on history!
[B]efore the 1979 Iranian revolution, Iran was one of America’s biggest allies in the Middle East and was led by the U.S.-backed Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi.
