Very Logical Guess (CIA Assistance Overthrowing the Democratically Elected Mosadeq in 1953) But this was Khomeini's return from exile Anti-Western turn against the Shah & America Overthrew a Monarchy and Installed a Liberal Democracy While one could make the point about a type of Monarchy, an Islamist Theocratic state was established Leaders withdrew from OPEC: Founding Member of OPEC

26 Q# 9 “We shall not repeat the past. We shall eradicate it by restoring our rights in the Suez Canal. This money is ours. The canal is the property of Egypt” This quotation by Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser (in power ) best expresses support for Communism Liberalism Nationalism Imperialism

27 Q# 9 Communism (Know Your Definitions) Liberalism Imperialism
How so? Have a working definition of Communism Liberalism Once again know your “ISMs” Learn your definitions, this becomes easy Imperialism Seems partially logical but Nasser is talking about a domestic concern, not the best answer
