Tariq Ali At Princeton University



The visual above is an Iranian couple before the Islamic revolution. That revolution would never have happened if the CIA hadn't toppled the democratically elected Mosaddegh government in 1954.

It's not a great speech but it is good and compares the Arab spring to the European revolutions of 1848.
