The resignation of the Iranian Premier, Dr. Mossadegh, takes place--characteristically--on a point having nothing, or very little, to do with the big question. He wanted to be war minister as well as Premier, but the Shah wouldn’t let him. So he quit.

August 5, 1952 — The Causes Of Our Unpopularity In Iran

Current events in Iran leave little doubt that at the moment Americans are far from popular there. There are reports that the Iranian upper crust is boycotting official American parties. A member of the Iranian Parliament demands an ouster of all Americans.

August 12, 1952 — A New Switch In Chaotic Iran

The Parliament of Iran, which 48 hours ago was in open rebellion against Premier Mohammed Mossadegh, has suddenly turned around and handed him what amounts to dictatorial power over the country for the next six months. From this distance, the development looks less like a cure...

September 20, 1952 — Dr. Mossadegh’s Progress Toward Political Suicide

Dr. Mossadegh, the "strong man" of Iran, now appears to be pursuing a kind of double-jointed policy. On the one hand he is calling in assorted foreign wizards, such as Mr. Alton Jones, the American oil man, and Dr. Hjalmar Schacht, Hitler’s former finance expert. On the other hand, be keeps...

January 8, 1953 — Hope In Iran, And A Word Of Caution

Premier Mossadegh of Iran is an unpredictable man in an explosive situation. He can be reasonable when he chooses to, and unreasonable by choice. In his defense it could be said that during the past year and a half of Iranian chaos he has managed, by desperate maneuver, to remain in control...

Iran is struggling frenziedly and feverishly in the grip of another crisis. This crisis, like most Iranian crises of the past few years, has its immediate cause in Premier Mossadegh’s desperate efforts to stay in power. He is now attempting to dissolve the Majlis, all that’s left of the...

August 11, 1953 — The Iranian Sky Grows Still Darker

Tehran is delighted with Premier Malenkov’s kindly references to Iran in his Sunday speech to the Supreme Soviet. The delight stems less from Malenkov’s announcement of Soviet-Iranian discussions of border problems, debts and increased trade than from Tehran’s obvious belief that it...

August 25, 1953 — Iran’s Empty Till, And How To Fill It

The Shah of Iran, back on his throne, has taken a look at the country’s public till and found it "very empty." Its very emptiness cannot have surprised the Shah, nor does it surprise the rest of the world. Nor is the rest of the world exactly amazed at the Shah’s request for immediate...

September 4, 1953 — The Tune Begins To Change In Iran

Dr. Mossadegh’s standard of seeking financial aid from country was to threaten that if aid were not forthcoming his country would probably go Communist. President Eisenhower gave that sort of polite blackmail the treatment it deserved. Iran did come perilously...
