Do you accept that Iran under the rule of the Shah was a puppet of the USA?
"Annex: to incorporate (territory) into the domain of a city, country, or state."
I don't recall any discussion about people in Iran being eligible to vote in US elections (sarcasm).
By the way, the Shah of Iran was a client dictator, but not a 'puppet', of the USA.
The Shah could make independent decisions. I doubt that the US government approved
of the Shah deciding to buy British (Chieftain) tanks rather than more American tanks.
