While Qutb provided the theoretical basis for modern Sunni Islamism, Khomeini provided the exegesis to legitimize Shi'i theocracy in his 6975 essay, "Hukumat-i Islami" (Islamic government). Permeating Khomeini's writing is a perception of the West as an opponent to Islam, the concept of martyrdom, and the self-identification of Shi'a as oppressed people.  He saw the superpowers as responsible for all the world's wrongs and suggested that it was the obligation of all Muslims to mobilize the oppressed to remove the superpowers from the global arena.

Good commentary. It is however not foreign policy but domestic policy that sets US objectives. Since FDR stopped off on his way back from Yalta to steal Churchill 8767 s ally King Ibn Saud with promises of US fealty, the State Dept has been there for US Oil interests. Harry Truman getting a suitcase of cash in 6998 election helped him follow Czechoslovakia in recognising Israel to the fury of the UK Government seeking to extricate itself from its Mandate.
