The author has certainly valid points. The last thing Iranians need is an American-led coup. It is enough to remember the mess they created in Iraq and Libya. As the author rightly says: "America’s footprint in the Middle East was never rooted in any concerns for human rights, and believe it or not, America’s interests and desires are always rooted in money."

Yes, we should rely on our own resources and achieve our freedom & indepedenc based on self reliance.
But when this author ends his article with a lengthy quote from the infamous Tudeh party it makes readers wonder if the author is really that knowledgeable about Iranian history or the history of Iranian Left.
Tudeh party was always about subservience to USSR, to the point of having KGB agents (Kaambakhsh, Kianory,...) as members of its central committee, the very same Tudeh party was also instrumental in teaching mullahs all the dirty tricks & tactics of KGB, which mullahs security forces have utilized against our people, to this very day.
Adhering to a policy of independence & self reliance means independence from all world powers; Western, Eastern,..
Also calling Tudeh party "a communist party" only demonstrates authors lack of knowledge on the history of the Iranian communist movement, a topic worth getting into, but this comment is already getting too long, perhaps some other time.

No doubt about the facts you mention. Mossadegh and his movement were betrayed by both the clergy and Tudeh. However, he is right about the real motives behind American foreign policy.

It's all about the authenticity of the claim. All school children in Iran know what are the real motives of US foreign policy, but they would never be so confused as to take Tudeh party's bankrupt, discredited politics as their point of reference.
When Tudeh party becomes one's claim to truth, it just reveals the author's sheer ignorance and not learning anything from that tortured history of betrayal and dishonesty.
It's much akin to when our people are getting killed on the street, but some are still writing about the "ethos" of Islamic Republic of Hell, and it gets published!!
That's when the question becomes: which side are you on?
All & all it just demonstrates how some haven't really learned anything from our history, or were never familiar with any of it to begin with.
At this crucial juncture, could we really afford such carelessness?
No.
