Were these all "pre-revolution" or it took part afterward? Iran was a big major force back then.
16/01/1979 --- Shah escaped!
01/02/1979 --- Khomeini Entered Iran.
11/02/1979 --- Pahlavi Dynasty Overthrown, Islamic Dictatorship became semi - legal regime.

before 11/02 is Pahlavi, After that date is Islamic Dictatorship.
