Rasi have you ever heard of the shah of Iran?
Supercat the wild apache had a song that mentioned him, "him run and gone america with a couple million, but lickle after dat, him was a dead man"
I recommend the graphic novel and movie "Persepolis" by Marjane Satrapi for a little insight into Iranian history and culture
