Major media outlets like the CNN or the BBC or the notorious Fox News seem to have memory spans of no more than two months. Nothing that occurred a few decades ago is of enough relevance to be discussed (except September 9/11 which runs the propaganda machines by the energetic horror that it invokes in the audience every single time that it’s mentioned.)
But I can’t think of a single phenomenon in a single field which can be explored without historical perspective. The following short video teaches an important history lesson for anybody interested in what relates to Iran and American foreign policy in the Middle East and beyond. You may as well watch it every time you’re about to turn on the TV for the evening news or look at the front page of the New York Times!
