Symbols, Iran and the US

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

DARIUS: - Coins bearing his visage are found inrepparttar Americas but we would never expect to see normal academic overviews mention this for public consideration. And I was not surprised when I read many other things about Aryans and supposed first Empires, as I readrepparttar 142865 following part of a far larger presentation. Wasrepparttar 142866 US support ofrepparttar 142867 Shah connected to a larger and long term plan to managerepparttar 142868 plebs or serfs who think they are free?

“Cyrus recognized thatrepparttar 142869 "known world" he wished to conquer included Egypt, Carthage, Ethiopia, and Greek colonies onrepparttar 142870 Mediterranean coast as far as Gibraltar, but forrepparttar 142871 time being he thought he had better seizerepparttar 142872 known world torepparttar 142873 east (except for distant, legendary China). In about a year he took lands as far away as what are nowrepparttar 142874 Turkmen Soviet Socialist Republic, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. He rushed west again and fell upon Babylon by divertingrepparttar 142875 unfordable Gyndes River, a tributary ofrepparttar 142876 Tigris which protectedrepparttar 142877 city, into many shallow hand-dug channels. There he freedrepparttar 142878 forty thousand Jews held inrepparttar 142879 Babylonian captivity. A few years later, putting down a revolt inrepparttar 142880 east, Cyrus died in battle. His troops brought his body back to Pasargadae, and laid it to rest inrepparttar 142881 tomb withrepparttar 142882 Nordic roof. {N.B.}

Cyrus was not onlyrepparttar 142883 world's first great emperor; he was a humane man, who treated his victims benevolently, honored their gods, and set higher standards forrepparttar 142884 profession of kingship than most other monarchs down throughrepparttar 142885 centuries. His son and successor, by contrast, was a brute who had earlier kicked his pregnant wife to death. He adored flattery, not blinking even when a courtier told him, ‘I do not think you arerepparttar 142886 equal of your father, because you do not have a son likerepparttar 142887 son he left behind.’ Nevertheless, before he mysteriously committed suicide, he managed to capture Egypt and packrepparttar 142888 pharaoh back to Iran. Upon his death, according to Herodotus,repparttar 142889 seven young nobles who formedrepparttar 142890 imperial council met and agreed to accept as king him among them whose horse should neigh first at dawnrepparttar 142891 next day. One groom made sure that his master would win by providing a delectable, neigh-worthy mare forrepparttar 142892 stallion. In this wayrepparttar 142893 noble named Darius became king, although his own account of his ascent, which he left engraved on stone, differs in ways that do not make nearly as good a story.
