Nixon in Tehran, the reporter is Mr. Shapour Jay, MI6 station chief of Tehran. One of the officers in this gathering was an army communist officer, he was the Shah's bodyguard. He could have killed both of them, but did not.

It was a known fact that when you were in the presence of the Shah, that if you liked to hold onto your head, you would do not talk, sneeze, or move around, unless you were directed to. In this occasion, the audience was permitted to sit down and have some ice cream and only listen. Nixon was talking about how all free people of the world should unify against communism. My uncle picked up a spoon and hit the glass several times to get Nixon's attention. This unruly behavior had gotten the Shah so angry that he was visibly red. When Nixon stopped in astonishment, my uncle said, "This is easy for you to say with oceans between you and your powerful army. What about us 1,500 miles of borders with the USSR? They have put 50 divisions behind our borders; they could bomb this building in half an hour because we do not have anything to fight with. Then he stressed that we needed help and a lot of it." Nixon began to respond to the comment and the Shah had a smile on, which meant my uncle kept his head on his shoulders.

After the official meeting, Mr. Sadeghian and a few others give Nixon a real dressing down, and jolted him emotionally to realize how serious the issue was. Once Nixon returned to America, he sent military advisers to set up the Iranian defenses in a way that in case of an invasion, the Iranian army could resist long enough to buy time, until American forces arrived.

In return, Iranian officials including Mr. Sadeghian assisted Americans to set up 10 listening posts on top of the Alborz Mountains from east to west to monitor Russian missile tests without having to fly U2 planes.

The final days of the Tudeh party

Although The Tudeh party gained a lot of strength and had the ability to totally take over Iran, it never amounted to anything and the party actually died twice.

After the CIA/MI6 coup of 1953, the Iranian intelligence organizations received the order to uproot the communist party along with all those who were against the royalty. The newly organized army intelligence with the help of the CIA and MI6, managed to create one of the ugliest periods of Iranian history. The forces of opposition were not just uprooted; they were murdered and tortured in the most horrific manner ever recorded in our history.

Bakhtiar and Mobasser

Generals Bakhtiar & Mobasser, arrested and killed any body who was a threat to the thrown.

The parity's leaders were captured or chased out; its members were tortured to the limits of their lives for information. Many people totally disappeared. The military wing of the party was compromised in 1954, and its brilliant leader was executed in 1958.

During the period of 1958 to 1979, most of the Tudeh party activities were outside of Iran. Their significant defeat as well as their inability to utilize their forces when Mossadegh needed it, along with their total alliance to Soviet Union destroyed their reputation and caused the splinter groups to follow Mao and Castro.
